Destination of the Day: Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome/Mall of America Field, Minneapolis, MN

Destination 1 in the series "Fourth and Goal"

Home of the Minnesota Viking (5-8-0).  Opened 3 April 1982 and seats 64,000.  Yes, this is the same Metrodome that made headlines last week with the roof deflating.  Yet for all the headlines it was only the fifth time and the only time in last 20 years that the roof had major problems.  I wish my roof was that reliable!  For the CT the stadium offers a mixed bag.  While downtown and near a light rail station, the area immediately surrounding the stadium lacks that nice urban feel of nearby restaurants and sports bars.
