The Metrodome hosted its final game ever on Sunday and some fans decided to take their seat backs home with them, even though the team made it clear they didn't want fans to take their seat backs home with them.

The Vikings hired extra security officers for Sunday's game against the Lions to deter fans from stealing things like seat backs, but apparently, that strategy didn't work. 

As you can see above in this photo from WCCO-TV, at least four fans decided to unhinge their seat back and take it home, which is kind of impressive when you think about it. If you've ever been to a stadium before, you know it's not easy to steal a seat back. And it's even harder when there's extra security people around who are specifically looking for people trying to steal seat backs. 

I'm not sure what these fans are going to do with half a seat, but if they decide they want to buy the entire seat, they can. The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority is selling Metrodome seats for $60. Or they can not buy a seat and spend that $60 on beer and frozen yogurt because judging by the picture they like that stuff too.
