Final Game- Metrodome

Sunday was the final game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The one-time home of the Minnesota Vikings, Gophers and Twins, it was 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. But the Dome for me is one of special memories. Who can’t think of the Dome without hearing that Vikings horn? The library has DVD’s of complete games of the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Twins World Series broadcasts to help you remember not the prettiest stadium, but one of the most unique.  As the winds have sucked people out after the games, the amazing performances there have sucked us in as well.
