Hooray! The Metrodome Blew Up Yesterday

Metrodome explosion

The Metrodome, that inflated pile of shit the Minnesota Vikings played in, breathed its last breathe on Sunday.

While the roof was deflated once the latest lackluster Vikings’ season was over, the real tear down took a little more time. It also took some explosives.

In this video, you’ll see one of the controlled explosions that turned the Metrodome to rubble. Unfortunately, the Vikings or team management were not in the stadium at the time.

Just think, they could have taken care of two atrocities at once. One is better that none, though. Unless we’re talking about a venereal disease.

This was shot from across the street in a church parking lot. The dude shooting it is impressed by the awesomeness of the destruction.

More impressed than he’s ever been watching the Vikings play.

As you probably already know, the Vikings will be moving into TCF Bank Stadium for two seasons while their new home, The Hormel Chili Dome, is built.

TCF Bank Stadium is where the Minnesota Golden Gophers, the only halfway decent football team in Minneapolis, plays.

Now, please enjoy the destruction of this blight on the landscape.

    I might be wrong here, but isn’t the whole thing supposed to come down when they do this? Not just a bunch of pieces fall off?

    Or did they just fuck up again?

    OK, dumb question. It is Minneshithole after all.

      Originally they weren’t planning on putting explosives to this part of the demo at all, but when a piece fell off out of sequence last week it was deemed that this was the best approach for everyone’s safety. They were just trying to get the top concrete beam around the perimeter down. The rest is staying, for now. Over time they’ll take it down with hoes and a wrecking ball or two.

        Are they going to get their hoes at the marina?

      So, in short, they couldn’t even de3stroy their own home properly; oh, Minisoda, you so silly.

    It looks like only half of it came down

    I wish I was there to throat-punch the guy laughing. Apparently it doesn’t take much to amuse those fucksticks in Minnesota.

    Next step: they’ll accidentally utilize too much TNT/dynaamite/nitroglycerin/whatever-the-fuck-they use these days and blow up the whole town…and Robin will eat his Merry Men and there will be much rejoicing.

    I was half expecting that stupid horn and piped in music to be playing. Hell, they left the banners up, including I am sure the playoff appearance banner from 1974

    I heard Prince was flashing young boys before, during and after the demolition. The police did nothing.
