Texas Stadium Gets Blown Up
Just because it’s fun to watch stuff be imploded.
Over 20,000 people watched the controlled implosion of Texas Stadium yesterday morning. The Dallas Cowboys played 38 seasons there, from 1971 until 2008, when they moved to the new $1.2 billion state-of-the-art ‘Cowboys Stadium.’
The old stadium was famous for having a big opening over the field, since the retractable roof they originally planned didn’t work out. It’s also where they filmed “Any Given Sunday” and that ‘Mean’ Joe Greene Coke commercial.
