PONTIAC, Mich. -- The Pontiac Silverdome was scheduled to be imploded Sunday morning, at 8:30 sharp.
Thousands watched online. Would another bus block the view?
Not this time. The charges went off, the building sent out puffs of smoke... and then nothing.
The Silverdome -- where the Cincinnati Bengals played in their first Super Bowl in January 1982 against San Francisco -- was still standing.
Times Go By: They tried to blow up the Pontiac Silverdome this morning. I’m reminded of the Bengals & 49ers in Super Bowl XVI. Paul Brown later gave us a paperweight with a game ticket.@WCPOpic.twitter.com/S0xkcUaTfA
