The inflatable roof of the Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Vikings, collapsed today due to heavy snow. This act of God postponed the game between the Vikings and Giants until tomorrow. ESPN is hailing the incident as help from above to keep sexting old Quarterback Brett Favre’s historic ‘streak’ of never missing a football game alive. Viking wide receiver Bernard Berrian tweeted:

Joke goin round is Gods Tryin to preserve Bretts streak record,Lol!!

Favre’s collarbone is hurt and he said he would not have played today. The game has been moved to Detroit, giving Brett 30 hours to recover. His long streak is an NFL record, primarily because most people aren’t insane enough to play football into their mid 40’s. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
