How Deflating

Thankfully, no one was hurt. Secondly, I have been in the Metrodome to watch a ballgame and it is a pretty nice stadium. I saw this video of the roof collapsing this morning and I had a thought or three about it. Since no one was hurt and a roof is replaceable, we can chuckle a bit about it all. I am kind of funny that way.

1) There is a metaphor in there some where, something to do with Brett Favre. Do the math.

2) Being a Lions fan, I always thought the Vikings were all wet.

3) The fact that the Vikings are going to play the Giants on Monday night at Ford Field in Detroit is ironic. Someone has to play the Lions role and I am sure neither team is feeling all that warm and fuzzy about that part, bad mojo and all.

Go jump the shark and catch this roof collapsorific video..

      That’s a catastrophic failure. They’re designed to deflate under a big snow load but that roof got ripped apart by big pockets of water. When it happens at the Carrier Dome they usually have it up again pretty fast but look at all the tears in that video.

        They’re giant balloons supported by air pressure*

        Nice to see you back posting Paddy.

    My brain is a bit less tapioca like today. I may even be getting my groove back. Been awhile for sure. Lot of damage there, might take em awhile to get it back up..

    Holy Shit!

    What I don’t understand is, why this time? Doesn’t Minnesota get a buttload of snow every year? Is the roof just old? Wow…

      They’re designed to collapse with a certain snow load and drain into the arena. The big splashes of ice melt on the field means something got out of control and there were tons of water on the roof not going where it was supposed to. If you look closely it tears the fabric of the dome, it’s not coming out of the places it’s supposed to during a collapse.
