Metrodome deflated for final time

Posted · Add Comment

The Metrodome has been officially deflated, and not from a Minnesota Vikings defeat.

The stadium's relief vents were deflated Saturday, a process that only took just over a half-hour.

Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority vice chairman Bill McCarthy told the Associated Press it was “a sad and exciting day at the same time.”

The Vikings are going to get a new $1 billion stadium.

The Metrodome opened in 1982.
