    I know bubbles like that have rotating doors to keep constant pressure.

    I remember during HS we had an indoor meet in one and the pole vaulters couldn't get through the main doors, so they had to go to a side garage door the first one would open, then close behind them, followed by another garage door opening to keep the pressure.
    I don't think it's really a pressurized bubble, just a shitty steel structure with a fabric like roof.

    Hope Jerry Jones enjoyed the Kentucky Derby. He's got lawsuits coming his way.

    Sounds like there were some pretty serious injuries, including one broken back, a compound fracture, and one man impaled by a flying object.

    Yeah, it pretty much stormed here in the Dallas area all day. And it is just basically a big tent. The video is on yahoo sports, and a million other places I'm sure.

    But it was a really intense thunderstorm.
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    The Dallas Cowboys announced tonight that scouting assistant Rich Behm will be permanently paralyzed from the waist down after suffering a fracture of his back that “severed the spinal cord,” according to the Associated Press.
