Fans will line up to see final hours of Texas Stadium
Terrell Owens is not expected to be desecrating the star at midfield of Texas Stadium Sunday morning when the joint is blown to smithereens.
The stadium will meet its end Sunday morning at 7 a.m. when it is imploded. The event will be carried live by NFL Network. Fans will be lining up to see the place disappear too. Irving, Texas, officials will open the Red Lot adjacent from the stadium for viewing. It will be open at 2 a.m. for cars only – no trucks or buses – at a charge of $25 per vehicle. So, stuff as many people as you can into your car and buck up for front-row viewing of the final hours of the stadium. The proceeds will be donated to local charities, and civic officials hope to have the area turned into big business soon.
The stadium has been pretty much stripped down to the outer shell and experts say that the natural hole in the roof will make it easier. Local interstates will be closed in advance of the explosion – nearly 3,000 pounds of explosives will be used – because of the dust factor after the explosion. If the wind isn’t bad, it won’t be an issue for long.
