MINNEAPOLIS: Where Important Things Fall Down

So apparently, the class of civil engineer that we had working the beat back in the 70s and 80s was not the type you'd care to have building, say, interstate freeway bridges and 65,000 seat domed stadiums.

The World Series in 1987 and 1991, a couple Final Fours, four years of Gopher football mediocrity, and the 1998 NFC Championship loss of the 15-1 Minnesota Vikings to the underdog Atlanta Falcons.
