Views from the Metrodome on Pickup Day
If you purchased a seat from the Metrodome these will likely be familiar images. Fans described the experience as slightly surreal: driving into the Metrodome and onto the field itself. It would seem almost sacrilegious to drive on the turf, but like most stadiums it was rolled up and sectioned off for souvenirs.
