The Minnesota Vikings said farewell to the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, their home for over 30 years, in January. They deflated the famous roof of the stadium and began demolition of the venue so they could begin construction on a new one.
Fans are coping with the end of the Metrodome era in their own way, some had deflation day parties.
Meantime, across the street at Hubert’s Sports Bar and Grill, others held a Deflation Day Party.
Ryan Wakefield of Bloomington eagerly waited outside for the doors to open.
“There is going to be a party, 1982 prices. I wasn’t even born yet but $1.50 beers,” he said.
Others are memorializing the famous stadium in their own way. Like this Reddit user who decided to memorialize the famous stadium by building a “full scale replica” in Minecraft. That is right, a to scale replica of the Metrodome in Minecraft.
