University Of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium Being Cleared Of Five Feet Of Snow, Just In Case

The Minnesota Vikings have paid for a crew to de-winterize the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, in case the Metrodome isn’t repaired in time to host Monday Night Football’s Bears-Vikings game.

Yahoo! Sports has more on the process involved in clearing TCF Bank for potential nationally televised football:

[Scott Ellison, assistant athletic director for facilities at the University of Minnesota] says the stadium has snow drifts as tall as five feet in some areas. The plan is to have groups of 100 workers working four-hour shifts for 16 hours a day to remove the snow.

The team still has yet to announce whether they expect to play in the Metrodome or in the home of the Gophers. As they’ve announced their committed to playing near Minneapolis, these are the only two options. Aren’t you glad your day didn’t involve paying for two stadiums to be emptied of snow?
