Metrodome roof collapses

Already we told you about how the Giants-Vikings  game had been postponed to Monday nigh t because of a hellacious snow storm that diverted the New York squad to Kansas City and has kept them there ever since.

Now, though, the game itself is in danger of being played at all, because early this morning, parts of the Metrodome roof collapsed because of the huge accumulation of snow.

No injuries that we know about have been reported.

The Giants, as of now, are still in Kansas City, and, in response to a New York Daily News inquiry about whether New York would make the trip to Minnesota, Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon e-mailed the paper, “Stay tuned.”

The same could be said for the game itself.

Heck of an interesting year for the Vikings, eh?

UPDATED (9:47 a.m.):
This might seem obvious, but Metrodome official Bill Lester told the Associated Press this morning that it's unlikely the stadium could be ready for a game Monday. His crews are still assessing the situation.

UPDATED (10:12 a.m.): According to ESPN's Ed Werder , Brett Favre said he would NOT have started today if the game had been played. If it's played Monday or Tuesday, Favre isn't sure whether he can go.

Also, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the NFL is looking into possibly moving the game to the University of Minnesota for Monday night or possibly using another domed stadium, perhaps taking over Detroit's field.

Good point!  It should be indoors and Detroit would be the place.  I guess I had cinci on my mind since that's who the Steelers are playing today.

The fact that the Giants were planning to play inside and did not bring cold weather gear would prohibit an outside game in the area.  Brandon Jacobs is tweeting that Ford Field in Detroit is being considered.

LA would make sense if this happend in Sept. with by-weeks eventually to come.  But late in the year, they want to minimize travel, so they will either play at the University of Minnesota's stadium or if they want an NFL stadium, they can go to Cincinnati and be only an hour flight away for each team.

Play the game at the new University of Minnesota stadium.  Can these overpaid (insert your favorite adjective) play at 0 degrees?
