First of all, I'm very glad to hear that no one got hurt in the collapse. However, 17 inches. That's it?!?!? Here in parts of Buffalo, we got 42 inches in a storm last week. I actually lived in Minnesota for nearly three years and it's a great place with wonderful people, but 17 inches of snow is nothing. I'm no engineer, but since this is at least the third time the dome roof has collapsed, maybe it's the wrong design for that climate.
On a side note of certainly greater importance, I've got Adrian Peterson going in my fantasy football playoffs this week. That means Ford Field better be good to ALL Day and team Hoopography tomorrow night against the NY Giants.
