Dome might rise this week

The Metrodome's new roof is expected to rise for the first time this week, as crews prepared Monday to install the final fiberglass panel and seal the fabric.

Bill Lester, executive director of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, said that a "test inflation" of the roof is planned this week -- weather and work schedules permitting.

If no problems emerge, the roof will stay inflated as workers attend to final details.

Although if they have to replace the field, they should go for a purple field, like Boise has.

Then we can wear our purple pant/jersey combo, hide near the endzone and swoop in to get pick after pick.

:D

He that lies down with dogs, shall rise up with fleas.

I don't know what the hell that means, but this is good news.
It means we may not miss any of the pre-season games that we might miss.

And should we have a season, we should be able to have a home field advantage...providing it doesn't snow!

I'm stoked.

He that goes to bed with itchy butt shall rise up with stinky fingers.

While this too has nothing to do with the article or the state of the NFL, I didn't want Doc to be alone with random insane mutterings....

Now, if only we could get a labor deal and a stadium deal done....and win a Superbowl or 5...
