KC columnist calls Rogers Centre weather woes 'karma' after Jays' boasting tweets

Blue Jays stadium

Blue Jays stadium

The game had been rescheduled as part of a doubleheader starting Tuesday afternoon.

The Blue Jays had hoped a return to their domed stadium would provide a respite from the relentless storms that led to a pair of postponements in Cleveland over the weekend.

Earlier on Monday, the Blue Jays smugly tweeted: "Weather update: Due to our stadium having a roof, today's game will be".

The CN Tower and some surrounding areas have been closed until further notice due to falling ice. It is adjacent to the CN Tower, an 1,815-feet-high structure that is among Canada's most recognizable landmarks.


The Blue Jays social media team had every reason to think the game would get played when they posted a tweet proclaiming as much.

An ice storm forced the Blue Jays to postpone their game with the Royals after ice fell from the CN Tower and ripped a hole in the Rogers Centre roof.

Incidentally, the Royals were the opposition the last time a game was postponed at Rogers Centre, back on April, 2001. Authorities say no injuries have been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one auto was struck.

Three tarp mats were set up beneath one hole in right field while five other covers of varying sizes were placed along the edge of the infield where the shortstop typically plays and into short left.
