Fox Left Cameras Rolling And Captured Metrodome Roof Collapse As A Result

Fox Sports captured one of the most chilling moments in sports this year when they left their cameras rolling overnight at the Metrodome in Minneapolis.

Prior to leaving for the evening, the Fox crew noticed that the Metrodome was leaking.

“It was already leaking,” NFL lead game producer Richie Zyontz told Michael Hiestand of USA Today on Sunday. “But we heard that’s happened here before. They were heating up the dome to furnace levels to melt the snow.”

The end result has been the talk around the league, leaving many to wonder if one week will be enough time to repair the Metrodome before the Vikings host the Chicago Bears next Monday night.

Rangers Sign $1.6 Billion Extension With Fox

Fresh off their first playoff birth since 1999, the Texas Rangers have agreed to a 20-year contract extension with Fox Sports Southwest beginning in 2015.

The deal is reportedly worth $1.6 billion and is among the most lucrative in Major League Baseball for a team without their own regional sports network.

USA Today first reported the deal was worth $3 billion, but a Fox spokesman said that amount was “wildly inflated.”

The Rangers current deal is worth roughly $45 million a year, compared to $80 million a year as part of the extension.
