a carboard box (i think filled with fireworks) caught fire in the gondola and fell and burned the turf

It was because of pyrotechnics used in the halftime show IIRC.

A couple guys ran onto the field and dumped a Gatorade barrel on the fire and stomped it out with their feet

Looks like it could be a controlled area that was burned off (just guessing). Maybe be easier to burn off and recoat, rather than remove and recoat.

In 1991 there was a fire inside the Dome during a game. We went on to win our first division championship that season.

I’m taking this as a good omen, so make more room in the trophy case.

(Took out the pleases; they suggested doubt. Not having that.) ⚜️

I was at that game. Pretty sure Madden was calling the game at the time as well. Started by halftime pyrotechnics

Edit here is an NFL films tribute lol

Saints record is only 1-1. Where is this “bad things keep happening”/“can it get any worse?” Lol you’d think we’re 1-4 in the 1999 season with Ditka as HC and Billy Joes at QB from the sound of things
