Vikings asking fans to help shovel out University of Minnesota stadium for Monday’s game

The roof of the Metrodome will not be repaired by Monday’s Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game. On Sunday, snow collapsed the roof of the team’s stadium, and Vikings officials have asked the NFL for the game to be played at University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank. The new location would allow the game to still be played in the Vikings’ home state, the only problem is they are having trouble shoveling all the snow in time for the game.

In some areas, the snow is as much as five feet deep, and now Vikings fans are being asked to help shovel. The University of Minnesota is looking for volunteers from Thursday-Sunday to shovel out snow from the bleachers, concourse and football field.

While you will not be paid for your manual labor, don’t worry the university will supply you shovels.
