We have some deflating news out of Minnesota this Saturday. Literally.
The Vikings began playing in the Metrodome in 1982. They will play the next two seasons outdoors at the University of Minnesota.
The Metrodome will not be imploded like most stadiums, but taken apart gradually.
The Vikings' Twitter feed gave us a blow-by-blow, as it were, of the event:
