The Dallas Cowboys Implode, And It's Not Even Regular Season

I keed, I keed. But Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys from 1971 until the end of the 2008 season when they moved into their even larger facility, was imploded today, with about 20,000 in attendance to watch, after a final tailgate party in the stadium’s sprawling parking lot:

(AP has a video with multiple angles and slow motion of the implosion, but given that it’s AP, it’s apparently not embeddable.)

Great stadium (though it looked pretty rough up close in its last years), great fans. Back in late 2004, I was there in the nosebleed section for the annual Thanksgiving game.
