Minnesota Gophers vs. Indiana Hoosiers Basketball Tickets

It looks as though the Golden Gophers loss to the Wisconsin Badgers this week at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin, has caused the prices on Gophers vs. Hoosiers basketball tickets to go down. The Minnesota Gophers host the Indiana Hoosiers at Williams Arena in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 4th. at Williams Arena. It is now possible to buy lower level Gophers Basketball tickets for this game for as little as $75/Ticket. A couple of weeks ago, the same type of Gophers tickets were being sold for $95/Ticket. If you aren't too picky, I would wait until Monday to buy your Golden Gophers Basketball tickets because there are plenty of tickets available and the prices may continue to drop.

Minnesota Vikings - Chicago Bears at TCF Bank Stadium Review

TCF Bank StadiumI attended the Monday Night duel between the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium. I arrived at the stadium an hour and a half prior to the game. It was a cold one, let me tell ya. It was a great experience, something I figured would be a "once in a lifetime" type of occasion. Outdoor football, in the snow, against the Bears with the throwback jerseys? While I was headed to the game, I was informed Brett Favre would somehow start and that Adrian Peterson was out. That was kind of a buzzkill.

The game started fast but that was about it. The Vikes took the opening drive and scored on Percy Harvin's catch and run. That was the highlight for the fans, as the Bears embarrassed the Vikings after that. The final score read 40-14. I took in the outdoor game and the aspects of it, but I know it would have been a heck of a lot more fun if they had played competitively.

Vikings Giants Game Moved to Detroit

If you had Vikings tickets for the Vikings Giants game originally scheduled for Sunday, December 12th at noon at the Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome Minneapolis, you are out of luck! Well, unless you can drive or fly to Ford Field in Detroit for the game at 6:20 tonight.

The Metrodome roof collapsed early Sunday morning forcing the Vikings to move the game to a new location. Can you believe it? Well, I guess 20 inches of record setting snowfall can be hard on an almost 30 year old teflon roof. The videos and pictures online are pretty amazing. I posted a great picture of the Metrdome inside after the collapse on my Metrodome blog. Check it out!

Vikings fans are definitely disappointed that this home game is no longer at home, but we will remain hopeful that they can repair the roof in time for the Vikings vs Bears Monday night football game one week from today!
