MPR News: What’s your Metrodome Memory?

Hey everyone, Minnesota Public Radio is collecting stories of fans' favorite memories of the Metrodome to commemorate the Twins' final season there. While I mull over the memory I want to share, I'll give you their invitation to share yours. They're collecting the stories to possibly use on their Morning Edition program.

Here's the request from MPR:

MPR News: What’s your Metrodome Memory?

After 28 years, the Twins are moving on from the Metrodome to greener pastures made of real grass. In commemoration of their last season at the Dome, MPR News is collecting memories of baseball at the Dome to feature on our Morning Edition program. We want to hear your funniest, strangest or simply most memorable moments at the Dome – whether on the field or in the stands. Share your story with us here: http://tinyurl.com/mprdome. Please contact Molly Bloom at mbloom [at] mpr [dot] org with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you
When I figure out what I'm going to write, I'll post it here too.

If you want, you can share your favorite memories here in the comments section too. I love reading other fans' stories.

I was there in 1987.

Herb Carneal: Gaetti to Hrbek. The Twins are World Champions.

Can't beat the whole 1987 pennant and world series experience.

I wasn't there the whole series, but I loved the series against Boston in '06. Santana vs Schilling, Kubel's grand slam (and back to back homers), David Ortiz homer turned single bc of the Dome speaker...

And the moment I did get to witness live: the batboy for Boston completely decking one of the Twins fans that was running around on the field. Classic.
