Metrodome Unlikely To Be Ready For Giants-Vikings On Monday

After a partial roof collapse this morning, officials are now saying the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome is “unlikely” to be ready for Monday’s re-scheduled New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings NFL game.

From NFL.com:

Metrodome official Bill Lester said Sunday morning that the stadium is unlikely to be ready in time for kickoff Monday night.

Lester is the executive director of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission that operates the stadium. He said the dome suffered damage to two of its triangle-shaped Teflon panels and that his crew is still assessing the situation.

The stadium opened in 1982. The Twin Cities area received 15 or more inches of snow Saturday.

There is apparently a news conference scheduled at 11 a.m. ET to discuss the situation.

Giants PR Director Pat Hanlon tweeted this morning that Miami would be a nice location for the game. That only makes sense if there is no way to travel to New Jersey by Monday night.

You have to think at this point that the best solution, provided the teams can travel safely to New Jersey, would be for the game to be held Monday night at New Meadowlands Stadium.
