They had the official showoff today at the new Vikings Stadium, but it came with a price, as the stadium was hit with a rock and vandalized prior to its official opening.

Here’s the story on the incident – stating it could take two months to fix.

On Wednesday morning, stadium officials — and pedestrians, as well as passersby in cars, trains and buses — could see a broken window at ground level of the newly completed, not-yet-open U.S. Bank Stadium.

And it’s going to remain broken for a while.

It’s likely to take six to eight weeks to receive and install a new pane because the glass is custom to the building, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The break leaves the building in less-than-perfect condition for the ribbon-cutting Friday in which hundreds will fill the field to watch dignitaries congratulate each other about the $1.1 billion building that was the largest public-private effort in state history. According to the source, the glass was broken by someone walking along the north side of the building who picked up a rock and threw it at the ground-level wall of glass.
