When the Metrodome roof collapsed hours before a game was scheduled to be played, entrepreneur Guy Nelson had a unique plan in his mind and he immediately picked up the phones and got to work.
After six months of correspondence, Nelson has finally seen his plan come to fruition, and he has secured a large portion of the Metrodome roof which is now being sold piece by piece.
Nelson boasts that this is not only a profitable venture for him but one that can result in some good.
“I also think the best thing about this is that we are able to be ‘green’and prevent acres of this material from going into local landfills where it could be for a over a thousand years and now can be cherished in your office,sports room or man cave,” says Guy. “I am also wanting to ‘give back’and want a generous portion of the proceeds to benefit Make a Wish program.”
The Teflon roof pieces can be purchased starting at a price of $9.99 and include a certificate of authenticity.
I’m not getting any kickbacks for posting about this, in fact I wasn’t even asked to do so, but if you are visiting this page during this hellish, news-less lockout then my guess is that you are a Vikings junky. So, this is a chance for you junkies to own a piece of the building that housed an endless supply of Twins and Vikings memories over the years.
