Blue Jays brag about having a roof, which immediately fails them

Falling ice forces closure of CN Tower, Toronto Blue Jays game in jeopardy

CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking

The only previous postponement in dome history came April 12, 2001, also with the Royals in town, when two roof panels collided, causing a hole and sending pieces of sheet metal and insulation down to the turf.

The team had to quickly backtrack on that tweet after the damage to the stadium before eventually announcing that Monday's game would not be played.

The Toronto Blue Jays' Monday game against the Kansas City Royals was cancelled because of damage to the Rogers Centre roof. The entrance to the CN Tower and Rogers Centre closed.

The Royals' home game Sunday against the Angels also was postponed because of weather.




The CN Tower was closed several hours before the game was postponed, as what the Toronto Star described as "watermelon-sized chunks of ice" fell just outside the nearby Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The driver was cut, but there were no reports of serious injuries.

A three-day ice storm has caused havoc in Toronto, forcing school closures, leaving thousands without power and creating traffic gridlock.

Yes, the Rogers Centre roof had ice fall on it from the CN Tower, which, as any Google image search reveals, is located right there at the stadium.

The unnecessarily smug tweet was a dig at all the other teams who have had to postpone their games Monday as well as this past week.
