To follow Drae’s post on the Upper Midwest blizzard here is video of the Metrodome roof collapsing under the weight of heavy snow.  Very wild indeed.

    Damn. It’s amazing it was captured on video, but thank God no one was hurt.

    Although, this is going to hurt financially. I’m reminded of a legislative proposal for the state to sell the Metrodome to the Vikings for $1. This idea came from a schoolmate of mine, State Representative Paul Kohls, who did not seek re-election this year. Now the state will be obligated to help fix this.

    Huh – watching this video again, at about 11 seconds it looks like you can see people running on the far side of the field towards the locker room area on the right of the screen.

    That was a cool video. I am glad no one was hurt. It doesn’t look like it will be an easy fix for the Metrodome. Maybe just yank the roof off and make it an outdoor stadium for the rest of the season. Bud Grant would approve.
    We live just South of Detroit and we have 4 tickets to the relocated game at Ford Field tonight. I expect a total cluster”bleep” of an operation. 60,000 free seats with general admission. What could go wrong??
    oh and BTW, Go G-Men! ha
