RAISING THE ROOF: In Minneapolis, Kevin Duchschere notes the Metrodome's new roof was inflated yesterday, and "about 45 minutes after liftoff, a slimmed-down, $18 million roof -- speckled with colorful air pillows to cut the wind -- resumed its marquee spot on the Minneapolis skyline." Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission Chair Ted Mondale said, "The inflation went without a hitch. We'll be ready for the Vikings, if they're ready." The team's first home preseason game is scheduled for Aug. 27 (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 7/14).
