After 39 Years, Texas Stadium Is Gone

Texas Stadium is nothing but a memory now.
The 38 year home of the Dallas Cowboys came tumbling down this morning in less than a minute.
The implosion was set off by an 11-year-old boy who won an essay contest.
After about six months of planning, it took only seconds for more than a ton of dynamite to turn the concrete and steel stadium into a twisted mess.
The Cowboys moved from Texas Stadium in Irving to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington after the 2008 season. Irving city leaders decided they needed the land more than the building, so they decided to demolish the stadium famous for its hole in the roof.
Cleanup is expected to take until July.
The state already has a 10-year lease to use the property as a staging area for a highway construction project.
