If you want a bit of Metrodome history that you can sit on, the stadium's seats are now for sale.
Michele Kelm-Helgen, chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, said an agreement will be signed with a Fridley firm today to begin removal of the Dome's bright blue seats.
About 20,000 of the 60,000 seats in the aging stadium will be removed by Albrecht Sign Co., which also did work on Target Field. The company will sell seats in sets of three to six to the public for $60 a seat.
Non-profit groups and community organizations will be charged $40 a seat.
Anyone requesting a specific seat will be charged $80 a seat.
The seats will be removed by Jan. 18, when the power will be turned off at the Dome, and its roof deflated. A new $1 billion Vikings stadium is slated to open on the site of the Dome in the summer of 2016.
