Early Sunday morning an overwhelming blizzard hit the infamous Metrodome, housing the Minnesota Vikings, causing quite an interesting turn of events.  With the weight of the snow and ice, the inflatable roof collapsed into the arena causing the field to be officially unplayable.   Well what now?

In an effort of “the show must go on”, the Vikings home game has been postponed until tonight (December 13) at 7:20 p.m. and moved to Detroit.  Could this be a good sign for Favre whose healing shoulder kept him from the possibility of starting Sunday?  If not, his record of  297 straight regular season starts would be compromised. 

Favre’s been working the throwing motion through his sprained shoulder and the entire team is hoping it only pleads positivity for Monday’s game.  “From everything I’ve seen, there is still a possibility he could play, especially with an extra day,” Interim coach Leslie Frazier said Sunday afternoon. 

Fans who can’t make the new Detroit game will be refunded fully on their ticket and those who do make the journey will be given priority seating on the 50-yard line, including a free general admission ticket giveaway starting at 9 a.m. this morning. 

We hope the best for the Vikings, the Metrodome and all fans making the journey to Detroit.
