Updated: Vid link added Texas Stadium comes down Sunday, 0700 Central

It was the only place I saw Cowboys play home games in my lifetime, and I got to march there in the HS band long, long ago (big stuff when you’re 16).  I have some ‘souvenir’ AstroTurf from the first time they recarpeted the place.

For those who are going to be up that early, the WFAA link to their live streaming web page is here: WFAA.

Here’s the video, via Austin’s KXAN.  Implosion starts about 1:10.

  1. I find the phrase “long, long ago” to exquisitely painful. Surely there is a more gentle way to express the passing of only slightly more than 30 years.

    Could it be that Late Youth is approaching?

  2. TheNewGuy says:

    Nifty demo work.

  3. :-( How sad! As many times as I’ve driven past that place, not to mention the hours I’ve spent inside it, it’s just sad in a way to see it go kaboom. This is the first time I’ve seen the video. It will be really weird driving in that area again and not seeing it there.
