Metrodome roof goes up; now NFL lockout must end


See? The home of the Minnesota Vikings is all puffy again. Now, can the lockout end??? (Elizabeth Flores / AP)
The collapse of the Metrodome roof was one of the most-watched videos of the 2010 NFL season.

It turns out that what goes up isn’t as compelling as what comes down — especially in the heart of The Summer of the NFL Lockout — but the roof was reinflated in a mere 45 minutes Wednesday. It’s uplifting and fills one with hope for the upcoming season as ... aw, forget it. The lockout needs to end now.

Because we’re geeky about the building/razing/collapsing of stadiums — while they’re empty, of course — Florida Atlantic’s stadium is coming along nicely.
