Roof fails

Snow falls onto the field from a hole in the collapsed roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis on Dec. 12. The structure's inflatable roof collapsed after a snowstorm dumped 17 inches in the area.

No one was hurt, but the incident sent the NFL scrambling to find a new venue for the Vikings' game against the New York Giants, which was moved to Detroit.
