Tampa Floods

Several times it would rain so hard in Tampa, water would come streaming down the back wall. Not only did several games have 'rain delays' while Fish the ballboy would put towels down, but one night it poured so hard, management had to cancel the entire performance, the back court was totally under water. Mgmt fixed the roof.
During another season a performance was cancelled because the power kept going out during a lightning storm until finally it didn't come on at all. The state allowed the cancelled performances to be added on at the end of the season.
Nothing more fun than running like hell when the lights went out and someone had just thrown the pelota!
