The Weather Outside is Frightful...

I LOVE the snow...and my Bieber hair!
So by far the two coolest things that happened this weekend were the Patriots/Bears game played in a total blizzard and the roof collapsing on the Minnesota Vikings Metrodome stadium.

If you didn't see any of the Bears/Pats game, you missed Tom Brady and his Patriots crushing the Chicago Bears 36-7 in a freakin' crazy snowstorm. The temperature was 26 degrees with 30 mph winds. I mean, if I'm gonna watch football, this makes it a little more interesting! The best part was that on the RedZone channel, they kept cutting to the Chargers/Chiefs game in San Diego--which was 80 degrees and sunny. Apparently that made no difference to the Chiefs who got smoked by the Chargers 31-0. Ouch.

Now we come to the real story. I don't know how they managed to get this on video as it happened in the very early hours of Sunday morning, but it doesn't matter. Here it is! Watch as the snow on the roof of the Metrodome slowly breaks through the ceiling (I'm totally wondering why it's made out of what looks like plastic wrap, too) and then comes exploding down onto the field. The scary rumbling noises are amazing as well...


The Minnesota game will be played against the New York Giants in the Detroit Lions Stadium. This will give grandpa Favre's shoulder an extra day to heal since he injured it last week. Do the football Gods want to preserve his consecutive start streak? Maybe. Or maybe that's their way of saying, "RETIRE, or we'll dump this 2 ton pile of snow on your head!" That's what I think. More to come!
Until next time...
