Sunday’s Site – The Metrodome, Minneapolis

NOTE: see the bottom of Sunday's Site posts for homes for sale in the area

When we recently attended a Twins game in their last season at The Metrodome I thought about its place in the life of our community since it opened in 1982. It has not only been home of the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings, but has also served  as the public recreation room for the State of Minnesota.


It has been used nearly 300 days a year, but fewer than 100 of those days feature professional or major league sports. The rest of its time is spent hosting amateur events, cultural events and family focused activities. In the winter months it even becomes home to thousands of rollerbladers, as they come indoors and cruise along the Metrodome concourses.

As much as I look forward to Twins games in the new Target Field next year, I must admit to being a little nostalgic about  The Metrodome. It  is the only stadium in the world to have hosted all of the following…

  • NFL Super Bowl (1992)
  • Major League Baseball's All-Star Game (1985)
  • Two World Series (1987, 1991)
  • Final Four of NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship (1992,2001)

…and, in this land of extreme weather, it keeps out rain and snow and cold…and prevents me from turning into a popsicle!
