Texas Stadium Implodes, Inside Look

On April 11, 2010, Texas Stadium in Irving, TX was demolished, having been replaced by a bigger, shinier stadium in Arlington, TX. Texas Stadium was the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

If you've never been there, the place was enormous, capable of seating nearly 66,000 people. Here is one view from the outside shown on the local news. The security before and after the explosions were set in place was said to be immense. They did not want any yahoos getting into trouble.



You can watch many different YouTube videos of the implosion as seen from the outside, but the video link below is a view from the INSIDE. You have got to check it out.

Hard as I tried, I couldn't find a way to embed the video, so I'm giving you the link. It's a split screen. If you move the viewfinder in the lower half of the screen you can get a 360 degree view.

Go here to witness a moment of annihilation from the inside.

It's embedded . . . very powerful to watch.

Heather: I think only the outer view is embedded. The link below that takes you to another site where you can get a view from the inside.

Both are awesome sights. It's amazing how much damage human beings can do when we're motivated. And this demolition was truly a work of art.
