Watched the first-ever baseball game played there on TV. I remember thinking, "I don't know WTF this is, but it ain't baseball."

Sad in a way to see it go so many memories.   Kirby Puckett's legendary play in Game 6 of the 1991 world series, Kent Hrbek's decibel meter breaking grandslam in game 6 of the 1987 world series.   The epic game 7 of the 1991 world series.

Some of Cris Carter's best games.  So much Vikings post season frustration.

Many a memory there for this Minnesota sports fan.

While they're busy destroying that monstrosity, can somebody grab the 1991 World Series trophy and take it to its rightful place in Atlanta?

It's a championship won by a team from Minnesota; they keep those things locked up at the Moose lodge.

dude, get over it already.  The Braves have won 3 world seris to the twins 2 ( 3 if you count the one the franchise won as the Washington senators)

I can't believe it'll be gone. Where will the US government reconvene after the apocalypse?

Too obscure?

NEVER!  At least, not until Hrbek apologizes for his blatant cheating.

How come every time I look like an idiot, nobody changes anything to make me look less like a moran?  Now, they went and made subby look like a friggin' genius and I'm looking like a moran again?  Why does fark hate me?

This sounds like something Red Sox fans would say prior to 2004...the Braves had two games that they could win to seal the deal and they lost both games.  Get over it.

Deflated and torn apart, piece by piece. Very fitting for the home of the Vikings. That said, I will absolutely miss the place. My last event there was game 163 against the Tigers. My pregnant wife was throwing up in the aisle as Carlos Gomez scored the winning run. I didn't know what she was doing until I turned to high five her and she was missing. It was the best moment of my life.

THIS IS A MOTHERFARKING OUTRAGE!!!

I guess. for some reason. But its important to know that greenlighting it is an outrage. Thats for sure. Its probably in the wrong tab too somehow.

As a former employee of the Twins who spent a lot of time there, thank the gods. That frakking dump can't be torn down quick enough. I was really hoping for an implosion but the wrecking ball will do.......

As crappy as the Dome was for viewing sports, it was still an amazing home field advantage when the Twins/Vikings were good. I went to around 30 games in '87 as a 5th grader. Amazing memories that year.

So where will the Vikings play at until the new place is done?
