Here's a segway to my next post... Our resident Minnesotan TC comes up again.
Team: Minnesota Vikings
Location: Minneapolis, MN
League: NFC North
My event: Regular season game, vs Dallas Cowboys
1. Outdoor Design
It looks like crap. It's just dirty, old cement. While the roof was still up, you could see that it was on it's last legs. Certain panels were beginning to bulge out and it was starting to look deformed. Just a really boring and uninspiring place.
2. Indoor Design
Equally crappy. The only thing I like about it it the fact that everything is symmetrical. Otherwise it's just blue seats and more dirty cement.
Prices are just average, maybe a bit better than most NFL stadiums.
Again, more averageness. Burgers, hot dogs, brats, etc. Tastes fine.
. Everyone is helpful, and more than happy to escort the occasional drunk fan. Can't complain with any of them.
Not really all that clean. Dirty cement that they try to look nice by buffing it out and polishing it. But there are always muslims sweeping up the concourses, constantly, never seen anything like it.
There are plenty of lots around the stadium, but kind of spendy. Getting in is easy, getting out is a nightmare. We literally waited 45 minutes to get out of the lot.
It's incredible, really I can't describe it. They crank up the music to unnecessarily high levels and the crowd's just into it the whole game. It makes up for how crappy the building is. Dome field advantage right there.
9. Playing Surface.
They just got new turf this year, so it looks better than past years where you could see more wear around where the infield used to be when the Twins played. Just a pretty average looking field.
don't know if it actually qualifies as a scoreboard. There's like this videoboard that's barely bigger than the TV in my living room, and the scoreboard is the same size, but in plain yellow light bulbs. Really professional, eh? There were ribbon boards installed along the edge of the upper deck a few years back, and they look nice. But still...
TC Counted... 54. Ouch. Well, luckily he went to a game before the accident. I'm sure it would be worse now.
