Mysterious Winter Warlock paralyzes the Twin Cities.
The Giants-Vikings game, orginally scheduled for this afternoon, has been postponed until tomorrow night after a blizzard left the Giants stranded in Kansas City. Initially, the league hoped to play the game as scheduled, with the Giants flying into Minneapolis this morning. Instead, the game will be aired on Fox tomorrow night–but only in the teams’ home markets (weak).
Complicating matters are reports out of Minneapolis that all the snow has caused the roof of the Metrodome to collapse. While it is not yet known what effect this will have on tomorrow’s game, it is generally agreed that this clusterf-ck is a perfect metaphor for the Vikes’ season.
UPDATE: The Metrodome is FUBAR. Game moved to Detroit and will air on the Sunday Ticket.
Here are the games that will be played as scheduled, rated on my Freez-Pruf(TM) Four-Star System.
