    I hope it's shaped like a Viking's ship.

    Are they really going to have the Gophers play baseball in there too?

    There's usually much more green and yellow in the stands...

    Honestly, I hate it. I was really hoping they would go with a more classic look. I mean, look at the Metrodome now....that's what this stadium will look like in 20 years.

    For those unfamiliar with ETFE, it is the material used in the roof over Kansas City Live in the Power & Light District, Allianz Arena in Munich, the 'Water Cube' and National Stadium from the Beijing Olymics, and the roof at Piccadilly Station in Manchester.
