ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!

Ford Field is ready to host an impromptu Monday night football game between the Vikings and Giants in the wake of the Metrodome's collapse.

The NFL didn't wait long before deciding to move the game to Detroit with Minneapolis still digging out from a massive snowstorm.

Anyone with tickets to the original game at the Metrodome will be admitted to the game and given preferential seating near the 50-yard line.

Otherwise, general admission tickets will be free and available at the Ford Field ticket office starting 9 a.m. ET Monday.

If I didn't have a huge thing on Tuesday to prepare for, I would so go. I might still go. But I'm afraid most of the tickets will be gone by the time I get up there. Detroiters love themselves some free football.

If it was the Steelers playing the Vikings there would be 40,000 people calling off work tomorrow.

FINALLY, an opportunity for minorities to get into a football game. Most of the games I've gone to are like white power rallies loaded with drunken lawyers and accountants.

Now all they need do is give away free beer and the rest of us will see what Detroit is made of.

I'm giving myself a 30 day suspension from this site. I really don't get offended by much and I'm not really offended by this either, but this guy injects this kind of garbage into just about every thread on this site. Lots of other internet to see and other forums to get my Vegas fix. Love your sites Wizard, but even I can only stand so much trash before punching out for a while.

I thought minorities had the same opportunity as everybody to get in. Where do you live, Jerry, 1957?

Yeah Ron that's a pretty self righteous thing to do.

So minorities don't have the same opportunity to go to games as anybody else? Isn't that illegal? I've been to a few sports games and always see minorities there, how did they get in, fake ID's?
