Update (11:30): The game will be broadcast at 8:00 PM EST on FOX (so says FOX), but only in the New York and Minneapolis-St. Paul markets. Which is good news for Giants and Vikings fans, and not so good news for ESPN (goodbye America's No. 1 ranked television market) or anyone that wants to see the teams play. The NFL has yet to announce if they'll show the game on DirecTV.

All day long, the Giants have been fighting Mother Nature in an attempt to get to Minnesota so they can play their game against the Vikings. But Mother Nature, as she typically does, won out and the G-Men are spending the night in Kansas City and hoping they can get to Minnesota in time for what was supposed to be a 1:00 PM EST kickoff.

That deadline doesn't matter anymore, because the game was moved the game to Monday due to concerns of snow on the roof of the Metrodome and problems with the Giants travel situation. The league confirmed the news on NFL.com.

"Due to weather concerns in Minnesota, the Giants and Vikings have moved their Week 14 matchup to Monday night," the "breaking news" message reads on the league's official website.

This is particularly fascinating because Brett Favre, who's dealing with a shoulder injury, suddenly gets an extra 31 hours to rest and prepare to continue his streak of consecutive games started. Yes, this has been a weird season for the Vikings in 2010 and, yes, it just keeps getting weirder.

Hey you racial a-hole Monstir; if you didn't know it already, the Spanish language is quite lovely. Get over it because the Hispanic nation is coming after your ass in this century when they expand their domain. If my history classes @ Harvard were accurate; the upper Midwest was infiltrated by thousands of Scandanavians in the 19th century. I beg to differ that those placid evenings in minnesota in January keeps the crud out. I would argue it keeps a racist jerk like yourself entombed in your horrible vision of society.God forbid that any ethnic diversity should exist in this country.

Most of those pussies who left to move there either can't handle the 4 seasons or would rather live with a bunch of illegal aliens in your highly hispanic state.  Personally I think the cold keeps the crud out of the midwest.  Keep the flow of immigrants in your state where these psuedo Midwesterns can learn Spanish and deal with the Mexican state of Arizona.

What a gift for Zygi Wilf.  Te collapse should prompt the Mpls. business community to act and act fairly quickly on creating a stadium plan.  I do not belive it should be all taxpayer supported but instead a combination Wilf/owner financed and use tax finance plan. 
There should be a steep ticket tax as well as a hotel,bar and entertainment tax hitting those benefitting from a new facility.  The state would sell bonds that would at least produce the funds to get it built with the taxes starting immediately and accruing and paying off the bonds and their interest.  Not a real tough thing to figure out.  Get it done Minneapolis or you do not deserve a team nor do you deserve any future Final Fours etc.  Note - I am a MN native, resident who is tired of the arrogance of the Minneapolis political scene saying it should be all the team's investment.  The city and the satate benefit.  Quit bitching and make it happen.
