MINNEAPOLIS, MN — It was one of the most-viewed videos of the weekend: Fox Sports'' exclusive footage of the collapse of the Metrodome from inside, according to City Pages.
Producers suspected the Dome was going to give-way and wisely left their cameras running overnight, which is how they captured the 5 a.m. collapse, the article noted.
According to the article, one question remained unanswered — who or what was the shadowy creature on the far sideline who just barely escaped the deluge with his life?
Some suggested it looked like a dog, a horse or a ghost, while some jokingly suggested it was Brett Favre or Zygi Wilf running away from the hole with scissors, the article stated.
"It is one of our maintenance men who was emptying large buckets," said Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission Director Bill Lester.
The maintenance man, who wishes to remain anonymous, wasn''t even supposed to be on-duty at the time of the collapse, but was helping out, the article added.
