Last night I saw the Twins beat the Red Sox by basically walking around the bases after the Sox pitchers threw 6 wild pitches. When I wasn’t watching the game I was studying the Dome’s very interesting roof.
This going to sound very weird and extremely nerdy, but I became obsessed with how it works and why it looks the way it does. From the outside it is puffy looking, but from the inside the the fabric is convex. How can this be!?!?!?! Shouldn’t the huge amount of air pressure push everything up so that it looks concave? I don’t understand!!
So I contacted the Dome and got the Operations Manager on the phone. He told me it was gameday (noon day game today) and that he had an elevator to fix and some people to rescue from the inside of their car (?), and told me to call back later. But he is going to help me out. I need to know. I just do.
Also, there is this absolutely awesome website of 100 great Dome memories. I love the Dome, and I don’t know why.
EDIT: Tear in the roof!
