Sooo, the first coveted Nerdyredneck Redneck Award (the Reddy?) goes to the the City of Minneapolis!
Who says rednecks are a southern thing? Minneapolis really embodies the spirit of bubble gum, bailing wire and duct tape of the true Redneck.
Just to lay a foundation of hard core redneckdom, in 2007 you had a major bridge spanning over a major river just collapse in perfectly good weather Don't take my word for it, see it HERE. See, no hurricane, no flood, no earthquake. Not even a plain old rain storm. Nope it just fell down alllll by itself!

Now that is pretty good rednecking; I mean that is almost as rednecky as leaving your boat in the water until freaking December but the real redneck magic is the Metrodome roof collapse See it HERE! I love this! (If you have not seen the roof collapse be sure to click the link so you will understand the rest of this post.)
Ok, here in the civilized world we have these incredible building materials called steel and concrete that are just AWESOME for making large very strong buildings. You know, its really the cool 'in' thing to use here in the civilized world! Ever since the Eiffel Tower a mere 1.21 centuries ago (and the last noteworthy thing the French ever did) every large structure built on this planet has used this weird substance known as met-tul (at least the ones that don't fall down)
So did you guys use the strongest building materials on earth to build a very large stadium?
Oh gosh no, Billy Joe Bob Bubba-Lee, you built your roof out of freaking pool floaties!

But hey, after the bridge collapse it is really hard to blame you, I mean you never have to paint a floatie to keep it from rusting! Right?
So congratulations City of Minneapolis. You have really shown future contenders of the coveted Reddy how it's done!
