Metrodome Roof Collapse Caught on Tape

What happens when you mix an inflatable roof with around a foot and a half of snow in a 24-hour span? Watch the amazing footage below, which was captured in the Metrodome by Fox Sports cameras.

Fortunately, no one was hurt as the Teflon-coated fiberglass roof collapsed. The only casualty was the the Vikings-Giants game, which has been pushed back to Monday night and shifted to Detroit.

Minnesota's next home game is scheduled for next Monday night, when they take on the Chicago Bears. That gives repair crews eight days to "raise the roof" (apologies for the pun). Of course, this isn't the first time the Metrodome's roof has collapsed. It also happened in 1983 and was fixed after four days, according to Liz Collins, a correspondent for CBS station WCCO in Minneapolis.
