Anybody like the dome for football? Minus the carppy plastic seats, I enjoy myself there and we have a home field advantage, I believe in there. How much money would it be to revamp the dome, being that only the Vikes are left there?

With the Colts building a new stadium I think they won't have a home field advantage like they have had.

Do I like the dome? For the Gophers, definitely not. For the Vikes, I think the dome does the job and it's nice in the late season when it gets cold. But overall the whole metrodome experience is lacking, and WAY TOO LOUD AND MECHANICAL for Vikings games. It's trashy. It's bush league.

never seen a football game anywhere else outside of Collegeville for a St. John's game. I think the Dome is good for football but yes lose the artifical atmosphere you have to be bombarded with. I thought there was talk about re-doing the dome for the vikes once the twins and gophs are out?

I think the dome is fine for football except the seats, not enough room for a tall guy. My biggest problem with the dome is its location and parking. Call me a hick or whatever, but I can not stand driving downtown Mpls and will avoid it at all costs. Put a stadium in the burbs somewhere and I would go to a couple games a year.

Nick on 93x said it best when he calls it the big inflatable toilet. I think it could work but get rid of all that dang noise. Get better seats in there as well.

Great for football, not so much for baseball. BUT, as far as baseball even, undeniable home field advantages.

Sounds like a couple Iowa fans enjoyed it a little too much in the restrooms...a little trashy for FM so google it at your own risk.

Hmmm...guess I never tried that at the Metrodome. Probably for the best but may have made the experience more memorable. whistle

As jbell said, location stinks for those of us who detest driving around in downtown Mpls. The sooner I'm outta there for meetings, etc., the happier I am. Moving Gopher football off campus and catering to business interests was a huge mistake after seeing many a game at Memorial stadium. Dome is OK for Vikings games in late November and December. Seats suck if you happen to be seated by a wide-body. Twinkies games-sight lines not so great, no rain-outs of course but we get back to location and lack of atmosphere. The right field bleachers in the old Met were a great place to kill a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in the sun during my college days. Looking forward to the new stadium although a retractable roof should've been in the plans IMO...

It's not just driving around Minneapolis, but having to park 40 blocks away or paying through the nose to be halfway close is a joke. One of the things I miss about Kansas Citys Truman Sports Complex. Yes, you have to pay, but it isn't a ridiculous amount, and you are right outside the stadium gates at games end. Very convenient.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
