    to add to my previous comment: you have to appreciate that they knew the metrodome is relatively close to the mayo clinic. HOWEVER:
    1. it is not a track and field stadium, you would have to walk up and down the field to get to 10 Ks.
    2. the metrodome is already CLOSED and in the process of being demolished. the vikings will not play there anymore, nor any other team.
    3. in general , football stadiums do NOT have a track and field area. SOCCER stadiums USED to have them, but not anymore either. all major soccer stadiums that were/are rebuilt/replaced (Munich,Berlin,Paris,London,Vienna, etc) eliminate any track and field areas, so the spectators can be closer to the action. this has become sop since major soccer went completely professional. even the old, revered empire wembley stadium was demolished, much to the dismay of a lot of londoners. at its place the new wembley stadium was built, JUST for soccer. for all track and field events new venues were built at the latest for the olympics in london. so THAT should have eliminated the hhh metrodome as the right solution. i know, it is a lot to think about in 30 seconds and if you don’t know the difference between a football and an old soccer stadium it is hard to guess. so: nice try, good effort but no cigar. but at least they were in the right area. you have to give them credit for that.
    HOWEVER,that makes sandie’s correct guess even more valuable. she was literally thinking outside the “box”= metrodome…

    Derrick didn’t have an easy time with them today or yesterday either, for that matter.

    I only got two of them today. Yesterday and Monday, yeah, they were easy.

      and fj was kind of a no-brainer,provided you know where the mayo clinic is and i would bet that more than 95% of j viewers would know that. even the average non j person, just watching news from time to time would know that. the mayo clinic is pretty much the most prominent medical facility in the world, at least in the top 3 or so…
      sorry to sound arrogant here, but NOT knowing the location of the mayo clinic…tsk, tsk…….
