    Metrodome now closed thru March

    This affects about 300 previously-scheduled college and high school baseball games, plus various entertainment and trade shows...

    I had no idea there was that much college baseball there.

    Now I know why KFAN was talking about Gopher baseball and wondering what they will do.

    Without looking at the article, I know there has been a huge golf show in late February at the Dome. It is now at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

    As far as football goes, the place is dinosaur and a dump. IMPLOSION is the operative word here.

    As far as the other activities I feel sorry for the Minnesotians who are losing one of their indoor venues.

    One of the reasons that if they do replace the facility, it needs to have some sort of a roof, retractable or otherwise.

    The Vikings owner is making noises that he wants an outdoor stadium.

    The Vikings will be in an outdoor stadium located somewhere between Santa Monica and Anaheim.

    The location for the NFL stadium in the LA area is already set - what remains to be seen is which team will relocate there.

    I take it that your pick are the Viqueens - they wouldn't even have to change their name - built-in appeal to SoCal.

    Wilf said no since he thought that would add $200M to the pricetag.

    It is smart for Wilf to say no at this point to the roof as it will help gain support for a new stadium that would use a lot of tax dollars to fund.
