Doug went to the Gopher football game yesterday. After a hundred (or at least 20) years in the Metrodome, the team has moved back to campus, to a new open-air stadium. Yesterday was Homecoming. It was also 38 degrees with occasional snow flurries and a stiff wind.
Here are some pictures of how some of the spectators tried to keep warm:
I realize it is fashionable to despise our Metrodome--which the Minnesota Twins will be leaving at the end of this season, too. People say the dome is a soulless, depressing place and that sports are best played outdoors. Hard to argue with that. But today it is not even 40 degrees and breezy, and tonight will be colder. Tomorrow we are supposed to get three inches of snow. The Twins play the Yankees here this evening in the playoffs, and again tomorrow, if they win. I bet they're secretly glad to have the Dome for one last series.
