The Vikings will hold their weekly walk-through today and they’ll conduct the exercise at TCF Bank Stadium, giving coaches and players their first look at the venue that will host Monday night’s game between Minnesota and Chicago. We’ll be sure to get thoughts from players and Interim Head Coach Leslie Frazier.
Snow removal was a huge part of getting TCF Bank Stadium ready to host Monday night’s game. Here are a few interesting facts regarding how much snow was removed from the stadium over the last week or so.
– The amount of snow cleared would fill the field with snow 20 feet deep.
— 40,000 cubic yards of snow were removed.
— If you were to put the snow on a normal city sidewalk, it would be 3 feet deep for 65 miles.
— Clearing the snow took 15,000 man-hours and 700 shovels were donated for the effort.
