Metrdome Final Season Display

Our lobby display case is featuring some Metrodome Moments in honor of the final season of the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The one time home of the Minnesota Vikings, Gophers and Twins, it is the only stadium to host a World Series, Super Bowl and Final Four Tournament. Michael Jordan, Brett Favre, Mick Jagger and Billy Graham all played the Dome. It is also where Kirby Puckett led the Twins to two World Series (“We’ll see you tomorrow night!”).  Cal Ripken Jr scored his 3,000th hit and Brett Favre became the first quarterback in history to beat all 32 NFL teams. It isn’t the prettiest stadium, just blue seats and concrete, but as the winds have sucked people out after the games, the performance there have sucked us in as well.
