The Old Met

Last Game at the Met

20 December 1981

The final game at Metropolitan Stadium featured the Minnesota Vikings vs the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs won 10-6. I was at that game with my Dad. It was the last time we tailgated at a Vikings game.

Fans stormed the field after the final whistle looking for souvenirs. Walking back to the car, people passed us with sections of the goal posts and chairs which were usually in blocks of four.

Now the site is home to the Mall of America, and it’s a damn shame.
