The Minnesota Vikings opened their doors to 65,000 fans earlier today for their game against the Colts, and will open them again tonight. But there is no game, there are no tickets, but a embrace for the less fortunate.

According to David Dellanave, U.S. Bank Stadium will be open to the local homeless population during a night with crazy cold temperatures.

As of 8:49 p.m. ET, it was negative eight degrees at the Vikings’ stadium in Minneapolis. It should warm up to four degrees by morning and start flirting with above freezing by Tuesday.
