A massive storm passed through Denver on Thursday, as hail blanketed the city. It was so think it looked like the aftermath of a snowstorm. It caused a ton of flooding as well, but nowhere was the impact of the weather more obvious than at Coors Field.

It might have been better if the hail just took the stadium out of commission for the foreseeable future.
