There were well-grounded fears, though, that indoor sports could be "blah." Kicks soccer wouldn't be able to cut it in the Metrodome. Since Met Stadium closed, soccer retreated to its obscure position.
I saw an article about some sort of Minnesota team just yesterday. But it's nothing like the Kicks' glorious run. The Minnesota Kicks were all about savoring the Minnesota summertime atmosphere. Our stadium may have been called "Metropolitan" but don't be fooled. It was on the fringes of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. It was convenient but it was also detached. That's probably why Mall of America is located there now.
