Texas Stadium Implosion
In case you missed it, the home of America's team the Dallas Cowboys was
impoded early this morning. On a visit to Dallas last year we got a
final view of the old stadium in nearby Irving. Although it's sad to see
the old stadium go, the new one in Arlington is quite an improvement and
building parts of the old will be recycled.
Here's hoping that it lasts as long as the old one, which was built in 1971 for a paltry $35 million. The new Cowboys Stadium was built at a price tag of 1.3 billion.
The 11 year old kid who won an essay contest to flip the switch has an inspiring charity, CaseysHeart, which donates to the homeless in Dallas. He has been doing this since he was 8!
