That's right about the bridge, forgot about that. Really close to the HHH Dome, had to be jarring for fans at the game that had just crossed the same bridge.Same reason the Twins played on when the bridge collapsed in 2007. The authorities asked them to please play. They did not need 20,000 extra people trying to leave the area right then.
As for the whole "You have 5 minutes to warm up" many are so indignant about, there's no indication anyone in authority ever said they were going to re-start. Probably some poor NFL staffer told ESPN what the normal procedure would be if there is a significant delay and they went with it.
I would agree about the 5 minutes thing. I'm not sure why someone from the NFL didn't straighten ESPN out, but maybe they were concerned with other matters.
