FARGO, N.D. (NBC/KVLY) — A mechanical problem has the Sports Bubble in Fargo, N.D., looking more like a mat than a bubble. Bubble Bob is coming to town, and he has some fixing to do. Bubble Bob is the guy who will fix the Sports Bubble in Fargo. It has a hole in it.

Jeff Olson owns the popular golf and recreation spot in South Fargo and says a mechanical problem and power failure brought the bubble down. Olson says until that hole gets fixed, he will be operating on limited hours. Three simulators are still working. Olson figures it will probably be two weeks before the bubble will again be fully inflated. This isn’t the first time the Bubble has burst. About 10 years ago, a strong thunderstorm brought it down.

You might remember this one, where the Dallas Cowboys practice facility collapsed on players.
