metrodome collapse

metrodome collapse

The metrodome roof caved in onto the field this morning due to the heavy snowfall that has been falling in the twin cities and it produced a poor mans version of the winter wonderland on the mall of America field. This is the reason why the Vikings-Giants game has been postponed and shifted to a latter date than today.

Obviously, the snow on the field might actually be something that can get cleared in a timely fashion for a game that would start at noon central time; the hole in the roof makes the likelihood of more snow falling to the turf almost a certainty, and that's a safety issue. Alas, we won't get to see the old gunslinger Brett Favre having fun like a kid out there in a dome stadium on a snowy field, making all of our Frosty the Snowman jokes about his arms made of twigs a little less potent. Rats.

So NFL fans will be disappointed not to see the match today but an unavoidable issue and it had to be postponed due to unplayable conditions.
