One of our Green Zone listeners referred to Mosaic Stadium as the Toilet Bowl.
Now that’s pretty harsh.
From the air, the stadium does somewhat resemble a toilet with the seat down, but it’s a wonderful facility despite the undersized visitors’ lockers and the issue arising from its first real snow game.
Before the Saskatchewan Roughriders played the Edmonton Eskimos in their CFL regular-season finale, about 800 spectators had to be moved because of a snowdrift dangerously and litigiously overhanging the southeast roof.
It’s kind of funny and it’s kind of embarrassing.
Certainly a $278-million building in a snow-infested climate can have engineers look into potential weather problems.
Certainly that happened, but something sneaked past them. Hopefully it will never happen again, but the silly part is that the snowdrift wasn’t — or couldn’t be — removed long before kickoff. Certainly that can be rectified if there is a next time.
