If you're headed into Minneapolis for a sports event (or really any other reason) Thursday, a word to the wise: Watch out for possible traffic congestion due to three sporting events:
Twins vs. Royals at Target Field, 12:10 p.m.
Golden Gophers vs. UNLV at TCF Stadium, 6 p.m.
Vikings vs. Titans at the Metrodome, 7 p.m. (streets in the immediate area of the Metrodome are closed from 5 p.m. until two hours after the game ends)
Then there's Minnesota State Fair traffic to consider if your travels bring you in that direction.
