Plus, like it IS the last home game of the season, and more importantly, the last at the Metrodome. I'd say thats a pretty big favor on our part.

statistically, that means nothing.

the Vikings lost their last game of the season and last home game at the Met Stadium, right?



i soooo want to play poker with you, because you don't understand how odds are computed.


a good rule to remember is to never underestimate your opponent.

but I will say I've always felt weird with odds. Like something's odds will vary from person to person. One will say the odds of winning are (this). The other person will say the odds of winning are (that).

Thats probably a poor way of saying it. I usually just don't trust people when they talk about odds, because it seems like they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about and are just kind of rambling on...like me...right now.

This Sunday, February 2, the Metrodome roof support cables will be severed, causing the final roof structure to fall to the stadium floor. The process will involve small demolition charges placed on the cables that will be detonated simultaneously. Mortenson Construction expects minimal disturbance in terms of noise, vibration and dust. For comparison, the detonation will have a slightly lower decibel level than the pyrotechnics used following a Vikings touchdown. The only real disturbance will be temporary street and sidewalk closures from 5:30-8:00 a.m., as no public access will be permitted within 250 feet of the Metrodome.

By April, the entire structure should be gone. Steel installation for the new stadium is expected to begin in August. The roof installation will begin in the fall of 2015 and by the end of next year, the new stadium will be fully enclosed with heating.
