Texas Stadium bites the dust.
Hundreds of people arrived Saturday and stayed up all night for "final tailgate" parties before the implosion. Along with the more than 20,000 assembled at official locations, people watched from hotels and office buildings as far as 10 miles away in downtown Dallas.
An 11-year-old boy pushed a button Saturday morning that trigger a series of explosions inside Texas Stadium. It took less than a minute for the arena to fall.
The city of Irving plans to recycle 95% of the remaining concrete and steel. The demolition cost under $6 Million.
