After 29 years without an outdoors home game, the stage *may* be set for Monday night when the Bears come to twon for the Vikes 50th anniversary show. I say *may* as no source can yet predict wither or not the flipping seasonal stadium a the U of MN can be prepped in time. Even assuming they can pull this together in time, there are some practical issues, like parking, beer (none is normally served at college games - wha?), security, and all of the other practical considerations of inviting 50,000 people over to your place for a party. On top of all that, this is the current NOAA weather predicition for Minneapolis:
Monday: A slight chance of snow. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 17.
Sounds F'ing lovely. By game time, the field will be a sheet of ice, and that's without the wind chill.
To all my Pack buddies out there, you win. Compared to all of the humiliations that the vikes have heaped upon your hapless team, there is no comparison with the complete meltdown of a season, the physical failure of a great player, the firing of a coach, and the implosion of your stadium. Truly, god hates the vikes.
