On Sunday afternoon, the San Diego Padres had a little fun at the expense of other MLB teams who play in, let’s just say, more volatile climates.

The Blue Jays decided to have a little fun of their own on Monday, but it backfired in a big way.

But the team was forced to delete the tweet just hours later after snow and ice from the CN Tower crashed down onto the dome and caused a big hole in the roof.

Crews were quickly dispatched to make repairs and there was some thought, initially, that the roof could be patched up in time before Monday night’s game against the Kansas City Royals.

But the game was postponed, marking Toronto’s third straight day off after the final two games of their series in Cleveland over the weekend were scrapped by rain.
