Video: Texas Stadium comes down in planned implosion

If the walls of Texas Stadium could talk they'd probably tell tales of Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman leading the Dallas Cowboys to Super Bowl glory, of the Doomsday Defense and all-time rushing leader Emmitt Smith and, of course, that one time Michael Irvin stabbed that dude in the neck.

But, alas, those walls are no longer, as the old home of the Dallas Cowboys was taken down Sunday in a planned implosion. Explosives weighing 2,715 pounds took down the 38-year-old Texas Stadium in less than one minute on Sunday morning, much to the delight of a crowd that had assembled the previous night and tailgated the implosion as if it was a Cowboys home game:

Man, that thing just blew up. Uh, blow — blowed up. The team moved into the new $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium last season. Blown up.
