33. I just heard on WCCO that it's the fourth time. When was the
Dome built? 1986, I think. So that's four times in 24 years. Not too bad. Systems wear and break down. Still, it's a lot of money for a boy's ball game, it seems to me. The Vikings should move to Los Angeles, and the Minnesota fans can watch them on the TV in their warm house. :shrug:
