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

Thousands blacked out by snow, ice and rain storm in southern Ontario Falling ice forces closure of CN Tower, Toronto Blue Jays game in jeopardy

The Jays and Royals will play a double-header Tuesday at Rogers Centre.

Earlier Monday, the Blue Jays said they were working with the CN Tower and Toronto police to assess whether a game could be played safely. Yet the universe is a fickle being, and sometimes unexpected events happen.

The team tweeted earlier Monday that it was working to fix the hole, which was caused by a piece of ice falling from the neighboring CN Tower. The ice created a hole, and the hole enabled snow to fall in onto the playing surface. The Blue Jays' series opener against the Royals on April 12, 2001, had to be rescheduled after metal fragments fell onto the field during a routine test of the stadium's roof.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.

A Kansas City sportswriter considers it karma that Monday night's game between the Toronto Blue Jays and visiting Royals was postponed after nasty weather damaged the roof at Rogers Centre.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and vehicle crashes.

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.

Six games were postponed Sunday across Major League Baseball and two more (Orioles-Red Sox, Cardinals-Cubs) were postponed Monday, bringing the season total to 24.
