Tribune column: Unseating a piece of the Metrodome


The Metrodome was not a great place to watch a baseball game. It was ugly, dirty, had neon green turf and the seats all pointed in the wrong direction.

But when the news came that it was coming down, I knew I had to get a piece of it.

I grew up 20 minutes away from it and can’t count how many ballgames and TwinsFests I went to there as a young baseball addict. I wanted something to remember it by, and what better than one of those bright blue seats?
