Metrodome Not Done Collapsing Unexpectedly

Pieces of the Metrodome have been known to collapse from time to time, so maybe crews should have been ready for what happened Monday at the demolition site.

Officials say a beam fell unexpectedly from the top tier of the stadium while crews were at work. Though no one was hurt, demolition work had to be interrupted until investigators can figure out what happened.

Let me take a stab at this one. The Metrodome was a decrepit dump, so pieces of it are bound to be loose. Like this beam that probably got jiggered out of place while all the other work was going on?

Jiggered is I believe the official term for that.

So, it’s solved. The whole place is a crumbling death trap at this point. Be careful. Wear hard hats. Make sure your insurance is paid up.

You can go back to work taking apart the stadium now.

And from now on, no more reporting on “unexpected collapses.” It’s the Metrodome. Collapses are part of the deal.
