    I’m thinking who the hell is Silverdale ?

    Now I’m thinking who the hell is Silverdale and what does he have to do with the Silverdome ?

    Guess I’ll have to read the link.

    Hey.
    I thought it was damn near impossible to edit the thread title.

    Two quick edits making me look senile today.
    Can’t have fun here.
    Visiting friends in the Big Apple.
    So what should be a fun filled afternoon of football will be the Jets and then the Giants.

    I just hope Geno Smith lights em up today.
    Right. That’d be like Rags grabbing the dinner check.

    I'm wondering, does the Capital Group still own it? They couldn't sell it and can't see someone paying $30M for it. And the city is and did go through with the demo. Very interesting!

    A former local sports anchor used to call it The Pontiac Plastic Dome.
    That structure will never be gone. Just make it a landmark. :D

    I remember when the roof sprung an air leak, he referred to it as , The Deflated Dome.
