Video of Stadium Roof Collapsing


(Video Link)


The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis is the home of the Minnesota Vikings football team. It had an inflatable roof, but under the weight of eighteen inches of snow, it collapsed early this morning. Thankfully, no one was injured.

I'm not American, but isn't Minnesota a wintery state? I'm pretty sure we wouldn't build an inflatable roof here (in Alberta), since we all know a dense enough snowfall will tear tree branches down.

I remember the year the dome was built. I friend of my dad's came over and showed me a swatch of the material that they were using to make the dome. Although I was 9 at the time, I remember thinking "this is going to be the roof?!"

They complain all the time that they need a new stadium (at the tax payer's expense, of course). Just rip off the roof, and you've got an outdoor stadium. Bada-boom, bada-bing.
