One of many experimental iterations ...

On a slow Sunday morning, what could be better than watching a hated sports stadium blow up real good be demolished in a controlled implosion? Say goodbye to Texas Stadium in your own special way with memories of the joint (watch the language, please) and join us at 8 a.m. EDT Sunday.

Ding Dong, the . . . well, you know the rest.

Not sure I understand all the hullabaloo about it going on around here. Been a big story all week. Maybe I would feel differently if it were RFK.

They have been running a Top 10 list of Texas Stadium moments. The Skins figured prominently, of course. The Dec 79 game where Staubach throw two TDs in the last 3 minutest to beat Washington and keep us out of the playoffs was #3.

Amazingly neither of my favorites was on the list. I guess a Dave Matthews Band concert and Moss's two TDs that wonderful Monday night are just no so great for the locals.

Weird. That Moss game is at the VERY top of my list. :)

I voted for those also.

It would be a little more exciting, or shall I say, I would be more enthused to see this stadium go if it weren't for the fact they blew this one up because Jerruh built the most impressive stadium in the world to take it's place. :frown2:
