Pontiac Silverdome Implosion Fail is Moving Tribute to Detroit Lions' Ineptitude

Kyle Koster

In a moment that feels a bit too on the nose, the Pontiac Silverdome withstood a partial implosion attempt early Sunday morning. The explosives failed to bring down the deteriorating and roofless eyesore.

Another attempt will be scheduled for a later date.

Classic mistake here by those charged with bringing the building down. They didn’t account for the tolerance it built up witnessing so many previous implosions.

The subtext here is that the Lions are a bad franchise.
