Transcript for Demolition fails to bring down former home of Detroit Lions
Hang on, folks. T.J. Is back and back now with our big board and that demolition fail when offs tried to bring down the former home of the Detroit lions, the pontiac silverdome on Sunday. I played there quite a few times. I bet. But you know when the smoke cleared the stadium was still right where it's been standing since 1975. ABC's T.J. Holmes as we said is here with more and, T.J., what happened? Okay, look at your screen, everybody. Let me show you the before and after. Here's the silverdome before and here it is after. Same picture. You get the idea. Didn't change at all. When the smoke cleared it was still standing. One of the the most iconic stadiums we've had in the country since '75, world cup, pope Francis John Paul was there and a representation of the upside, right, the boom of the Detroit area but the decline and trying to bring it down and try to usher in a new era and tried to blow it up. It'll take more than that to bring me down. Social media had a little fun with that. Well, you know, you're going to love it all lions related. One interest a former writer, triedo implode the silverdome. It doesn't work like pose game plans in there on Sundays. Angry people leave the silverdome after a disappointing ending. The with in charge said what happened was only 10% of the explosives went off and to that my response is, come on, now. That did look a little weak, though. Sabotage maybe. They think possibly some trespassing. Could have happened. Good to have you back. Good to be back.
