Whatever the weather, it's always time to play ball inside the Dome. – In Short
Usually referred to simply as "The Dome," this venue is the home to two of Minnesota's pro sports teams, the Twins (baseball) and the Vikings (football), plus the University of Minnesota Gophers football team. The venue is the Cities' only indoor facility big enough to host motocross events, monster-truck rallies and the occasional Rolling Stones-size rock tour. Concessions include standard fare such as burgers, popcorn, nachos and hot dogs.
We need a stadium! – Baseball just isn't for domes. You can't hear the announcer, the beer is warm, and the air is too cold. We need a stadium for baseball.
dumpy dome – Baseball in the dome is MISERABLE WITH BAD ACOUSTICS, BAD SEATS, and BORING activities. On a scale of 1-10-- 10 being the worst, the dome is a 10!!!
WE NEED A NEW STADIUM.
Great Acoutics – This is the place to be for the concert of your choice. The acoustics are very good and the size of this place is enormous.
Time to bag it? – The Metrodome is probably a good place to see football game noisy and rowdy. Not a really baseball friendly place however. I know it is the home to a World Championship, but the baggy is no Green Monster. The dome is just plain wrong for baseball. Heres hoping the Twins get a new home. If not, they should still remain in the Twin Cities as long as the fans supports the team and ownership places a competitive product on the field.
