    According to Peter King on Twitter (Twitter is Ballin'! Can you tell?) says, as of 10:57 PM EST, that the NFL doesn't know yet if DIRECTV will show the game and he's told its in the process of being researched.

    Ironic that the Giants Vikings will played opposite the Ravens Texans, which was the last game moved due to weather.

    Sure is Man. I also understand that FOX is airing the game and not FOX Sport Net in case anyone thought so or asked around.

    Game was supposed to air locally here. Not sure what they'll put in place now, but there's not a lot of great morning NFC games to choose from.

    also just saw a tweet from Troy Aikman saying it's not the weather or travel issues postponing the game tomorrow, but leak the Metrodome has developed. Apparently there's some concern the roof may collapse. <shrug>

    My thoughts- Make them play it outside at the stadium the Gophers play at. Football should be played outside anyway, not in domes.

    The University of Minnesota's men's and women's basketball games were cancelled yesterday due to insane blizzards. This was no sneak attack. Someone should have planned better.

    Why aren't they on a bus RIGHT NOW?

    Apparently there is a hole in the Metrodome roof, and according to what I just saw on ESPN, nothing can be played there for at least 2 weeks!

    The Giants did not bring their cold weather gear, and the UMinn Stadium is pretty small (capacity-wise).

    I don't mind the idea of playing in Detroit.

    The snow on the roof made it collaspe/deflate and now the game can't be played there. Site under current consideration include Ford Field and University of Minnesota. Also, Greg Aiello did mention that the game would be shown on DIRECTV & NFL Sunday Ticket.

    But there's one problem------

    Ford Field deemed a viable option because Ford makes Mustangs---er-----I mean because the FOX TV equipment is set up there and the proximity.

    Looks like Favre is coming to Detroit.

    It just started snowing about 7:30AM we are only getting about 6 inches, just a dusting.
