VIDEO: Watch The Metrodome Collapse From The Inside As Snow Pours Through The Roof

New, comments

No words of introduction can do this justice, so I'll keep it basic: FOX broadcast this video of the Metrodome roof collapsing from the inside.

If you need to pick up your jaw off the floor, go ahead and do that now. I'll wait. (Go ahead, watch it again.) Okay, you good to continue? Good.

This video of the Metrodome collapse from the inside is likely to go down in sports lore as one of the best videos ever of a stadium collapse. Sure, there's the fact that this collapse has necessitated the move of the Vikings-Giants game scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. Eastern this Sunday to Monday night at 7:20 p.m. Eastern at Ford Field, and sure, there's already an iconic photo of the snow on the field, but this video is like watching the Hindenburg blow up in real time — then dump tons of snow onto a field where Brett Favre plays football.

In a year with a lot of great moments, this may be the single most memorable thing to happen in the world of sports in 2010. How do I know? You're probably watching the video again, aren't you?
