The implosion of the Silverdome went hilariously, terribly wrong

It could still fall, but the timetable is uncertain, said officials with Detroit-based Adamo Group, the demolition company. "We'll figure out why and we'll make sure that that happens safely", said Dr. Deirdre. Or, at least, that was the plan until the Silverdome decided against it. "It's going to take us a while to research it all". "We just have to wait and let gravity do its job".

That's because, officials told Detroit's WXYZ, the Silverdome was "built a little too well".

Social media users didn't wait for official word on what happened to start poking fun at the fact that the stadium was still there. The stadium's roof had been removed prior to the scheduled implosion. "The place must be waiting until the 4th quarter to actually implode". However, the Silverdome apparently is indestructible, as the numerous explosions failed to bring down the building. "Even the walls are afraid to cross the goal line".

Penn State, Washington to meet in Fiesta Bowl
The Nittany Lions most recently played in the game back in 1997, when Penn State beat Texas 38-15. Their last meeting was in the 1983 Aloha Bowl in Hawaii, where Penn State won 13-10.

The Detroit Lions played in the Pontiac Stadium from 1975 through 2001.

For years the Pontiac Silverdome has been one of America's most famous ruins, a shadow of the arena that once hosted the Pope, a Super Bowl and the World Cup.
