The University of Florida’s home football field, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, was reportedly on fire early this afternoon and the cause is honestly hilarious. University officials confirmed later that a DUMPSTER FIRE was ongoing in the 3rd level of the stadium.
Poetic how “The Swamp” and dumpster fire managed to fit perfectly in a sentence.
UPDATE from UF: The stadium will be closed Sunday due to an ongoing investigation. It will remain closed Monday – Friday — as previously scheduled — for preseason maintenance.— Claudia Bellofatto (@CBellofattoTV) September 12, 2020
I wonder which “Florida man” started this fire? We don’t want to jump to conclusions, but maybe this was God giving the Florida boosters a sign to build a completely new stadium. A field that perhaps won’t smell like a night out at Magic City?
For the fans who care about Florida Gators football, luckily they were able to control the fire and save football Saturday. Looks like “The Swamp” will be the home of yet another underwhelming win to an unranked team like Miami.
UPDATE: GFR says the fire today should have no effect on the field moving forward.— Claudia Bellofatto (@CBellofattoTV) September 12, 2020
Most excitingly the campus police now get to play Scooby-Doo and get to the bottom of who started the fire. Shouldn’t take them too long to solve the crime, but either way we’re looking forward to any type of college football.
Can’t smell the sweat in Ben Hill Griffin if you watch it on TV!
