A Small Bit Of Good Comes From Metrodome Roof Collapse

According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, a little bit of good has come as a result of last month's roof collapse at the Metrodome in Minneapolis.

There was a fund raiser on Friday night in St. Paul to benefit Dunning Field, a ballpark in the local area. Among the items that were up for sale were two pieces of the Metrodome roof. Each piece was about six inches long.

The price paid for those two pieces? A cool $500.

Now, I'm not entirely sure who has the right to sell pieces of the Metrodome roof. . .one would assume that it's the property of the city of Minneapolis or of the Minneapolis Sports Facilities Commission, and perhaps they gave permission for the pieces to be sold. Otherwise, it seems a little strange that that sort of thing could be auctioned off.

Overall, nearly $4,000 was raised for the field, so kudos to the folks involved for getting that sort of money put together for Dunning Field.
