PSA: Buy a Metrodome seat for $60
Metrodome-Seats.jpgThe Metrodome's final sporting event will take place on Sunday afternoon and the demolition crews will move in and start the interior dismantle shortly thereafter.
While elements like the baggy and dirt from the mound were auctioned off a few weeks accord, the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority recently took bids from contractors to remove the seats. The winner -- Albrecht Signs -- will dismantle the iconic blue seats and make them available for purchase, reports MPR's Tim Nelson:
Prices are up in the air right now. Individual seats will could run $60 each, and specific seats may require an extra $20 to fulfill the request. Manning says non-profits and other groups may get them for a $40 each. Hathaway, the MSFA spokeswoman, said her agency hasnít agreed on final prices yet and the contract hasnít actually been drawn up yet.
$60 is not a bad price to pay. Heck, that's like one day of pay while substitute teaching for Twins' prospect Alex Meyer.

I'm already in negotiations with the wife to get 3-4 of these for the tv room.
The negotiations aren't going well thus far.

I Might buy a few and put them in my tv room. I'll be sure to face the seats about 45 degrees to the left of the tv so it'll be just like old times.

Sadly, it looks like they won't ship them. It'll be hard enough to convince my wife that we NEED a metrodome seat (or two). It'll be downright impossible once I add that we'll need to drive four hours to acquire it.
