The Pontiac Silverdome opened on August 23, 1975 and was closed in 2013. On Sunday morning, the home of the Detroit Lions was to be demolished and it did not go as smoothly as the Georgia Dome demolition from two weeks ago. Things did not go as planned and after the smoke cleared the Silverdome was still standing strong after the attempted implosion at 8:30 in the morning. The controlled explosions did not snap the metal support beams that were supposed to collapse the upper deck.
The future is here, y’all. And it’s available in burlap and reclaimed barn wood. Related
