Georgia Dome Destroyed!!

Recommended Posts

It's gone.  The only roofed structure in history to host 2 Super Bowls, a Centennial Olympics, and a number of Final Four games.  (Was there in 1995 for the 1st National Transplant Games.)   Wasteful America!

Sad, we saw the Russia-Italy and USA-Zaire women's basketball games there in 1996.  It started to pour outside and the sound of the rain bouncing off that roof made it sound as if we were inside a drum. Another perfectly good stadium gone too soon.

Only America would have an 80000 seat, 20ish year old, perfectly usable (seemingly) stadium & blow it up. Like Baron says, what a waste :(

All because of Arthur Blank's greedy desire to have his Atlanta Falcons stay competitive financially and take charge of the revenues. Nothing against the newer and quite innovative Mercedes-Benz Dome. But the Georgia Dome getting imploded after over 25 years of tremendous usage with still lots to offer is indeed a waste. Sad. Should've seen a great as Georgia World Congress Center expansion space for conventions with some sports events with some renovations.
