Minnesota-Duluth vs. NW Missouri Game / Crew

Crew of this game: First, congrats on the assignment. WOW...I just looked at the weather forecast for tomorrow's D-II semi-final. 3-6 inches of snow, 20 mph winds, and wind chill ranging from -17 to -32. Wishing you all well and having a safe game. I have no clue how you're going to stay warm and concentrate but I'd like to be the first to wish you the best of luck in doing so.

Have a GREAT Game.

Cheers!

Some of the NFL guys aren't exactly going to be working in balmy conditions today. Snow, cold, and 50mph winds in Chicago.

At least the roof isn't caving in on them in Chicago.

Can you imagine what it would have been like if the roof had collapsed during the game? That would have been a major catastrophe.

Looking at the video of the "collapse", it does not appear there would have been much problem from the snow and pieces of fabric that fell in. But the panicked stampede that would have ensued would likely have killed many.

Oh, yes, there would have. That weight of snow is massive. Anyone underneath it would have been crushed.
