Not only do the New York Giants get an extra night of sleepover fun, but now all of Detroit is invited. The Giants-Vikings game originally scheduled for 1 pm today in Minnesota has been rescheduled for an 8:20 pm start tomorrow evening at Ford Field. Early word is that the game will be televised on ESPN, because who wants to see the Houston offense go against Baltimore’s D when you can see more hijinx like this?
The game was originally postponed due to a mini Snowpocalype in Minneapolis yesterday that caused the Metrodome roof to collapse. Apparently that state has never seen snow in December before and they weren’t able to get everything cleaned up in time for a game this weekend.
will probably be on sale at some point are free to the public, though it’s not like this game is an improvement over what fans usually see in that stadium. Still, it’s disappointing to know that the first Monday night game in Detroit in what seems like forever won’t even feature our beloved Lions.
UPDATE: Here’s video of the Metrodome roof collapsing and dudes shoveling snow off of the roof.
