New Footage Of The Metrodome Roof Collapse

While not as dramatic as the video captured by Fox, there was new footage released on Thursday of the Metrodome roof collapse from last December.

The Metrodome landlords voted unanimously to replace the snow-damaged roof with a goal of finishing by Aug. 1 at an estimated coast of $18.3 million.

If the work isn’t completed on time, there’s a chance the Minnesota Vikings preseason schedule could be affected.

(Who am I kidding? We all know there likely won’t be a preseason.)

New York Knicks-Boston Celtics Stunner Delivers MSG Its Best Ratings Since 2001

Last night’s NBA matchup between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics was one of the best games to watch all season. If you missed it, it was capped with a stunning last second shot by Paul Pierce to give the Celtics the lead with 4/10 of a second remaining, followed by three-pointer that would have given the Knicks the win, had it not been beaten by the buzzer by a fraction of a second.

While the game may have ended with a Knicks loss, it was still sweet for MSG, which saw its highest ratings for a Knicks game since October 31, 2001–When Michael Jordan made his return to the NBA with the Washington Wizards.

The game on MSG averaged a 3.61 household rating, or 271,303 homes. Combined with ESPN’s telecast, it averaged a 6.27 household rating in the New York market.

Bill Simmons Solves MLS Cup's Ratings Problem

Ratings for MLS Cup, Major League Soccer’s championship match, fell in 2010. According to Sports Media Watch, “The Rapids’ championship-winning victory over FC Dallas earned a 0.5 overnight rating on ESPN Sunday night, down 44 percent from last year (RSL/LA: 0.9, ESPN), and down 29 percent from 2008 (CMB/NY: 0.7, ABC).”

In his Tuesday afternoon chat, Bill Simmons provided a solution:

You need to stop putting your semifinal and Final playoff games head to head against Sunday night NFL. it’s a suicide mission. Schedule those games for Tuesday nights when there’s no football and you’re only going against NFL. You will never, ever, not EVER gain traction in America in any conceivable way by going head to head against the NFL. It’s idiotic. it couldn’t be dumber. That MLS Cup final was really exciting (especially the last 20 minutes of extra time, and yes, I was toggling between that and the Eagles game) and nobody saw it.

But going against the NFL is only part of the problem. Read more
