Metrodome Collapse: Vikings Stadium Repaired In Time For Dec. 20 Monday Night Football Vs. Bears?

So the Minnesota Vikings have found themselves making an impromptu flex schedule appearance on Monday Night Football, with their Dec. 12 game against the New York Giants moved to Dec. 13 due to the Metrodome’s collapsed roof. But what about next week’s scheduled Monday nighter against the Chicago Bears?

According to the Chicago Tribune, Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission chairman Roy Terwilliger says the stadium’s crew should be able to clean up the snow and debris, replaced the three damaged panels, and restore the roof in time. That sounds like a mighty quick turnaround, but Terwilliger says “we’ll see.”

Luckily there wasn’t much damage to the interior of the stadium, with no seating areas taking much of an impact. Cleanup will just involve, like, a really big Shop-Vac, but shouldn’t be too much of a problem. Raising the roof should be aided by a lack of further snow for the most part, as it’s only supposed to snow once and lightly between now and next Monday.
