Replacements needed for some stadium seats post-Super Bowl
MINNEAPOLIS – Operators of the Minneapolis stadium that hosted the Super Bowl have some seats to replace, including one taken by a Philadelphia Eagles fan who was spotted with a stolen seat at the airport.
Video of the fan with his purple seat at the stadium's coat check had generated about 185,000 views on Facebook as of Wednesday morning. A traveler later snapped a photo of the man with his seat souvenir strapped to his carry-on suitcase at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The Star Tribune says the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority says its security team is investigating the theft.
Besides the stolen seat, the agency says a number of damaged seats will be repaired or replaced immediately. Zak Fick says he saw Eagles fans breaking three seats following Philadelphia's Super Bowl win.
