For the first time since early December, the roof covering Mall of America Field at the Metrodome is being inflated today after being worked on and replaced by workers over the past several months thanks to the blizzard that took said roof down on December 10 and 11.
The process started at 7 a.m. today and will wrap up later the morning, if all goes well.
The Vikings are slated to take on the Dallas Cowboys in preseason play on Saturday, Aug. 27, which of course will be the first game at the Metrodome since the Vikings 38-14 win over the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 5, 2010.
We’ll have more coverage of the “roof inflation” in the coming days here on vikings.com, including a cool time-lapse video showing the start-to-finish process of the inflation.
