We found out Sunday morning that the Metrodome's Teflon roof had collapsed because of 17.1 inches of snow. For a team that is desperate for a new stadium, this might fast-track the process. The best news to come out of all of this is that no one was injured. The Vikings and Giants have been inconvenienced, but the players will be fine.
The Giants, who had been diverted to Kansas City, now have the advantage. They will no longer play in one of the most hostile environments in the league. It's not like Lions fans are going to show up in force and root for the Vikings.
In the long-run, this chaotic situation might help bring some closure for Vikings fans. Either the community and the Wilf family do whatever it takes to get a new facility or it's time to start thinking about the franchise moving to Los Angeles.
For now, it just means one more stop on the Giants' holiday tour. Then they'll have the short week to prepare for the Eagles.
