A Massive Collapse At The Cowboys' Stadium? But It's Not Even January!

What's that explosion you hear echoing from the Dallas area?  It's not the last glimmer of Jerry Jones' hope for widespread public respect fading into that good night after the video hit the web showing his apparently recent comments blasting Tim Tebow, revealing how similar his love for Tony Romo is to Herbert's love for Brian Griffin on The Family Guy, and explaining that Bill Parcells is a joke and that Jones only hired him to silence critics and dupe his fans into voting to approve the new stadium.

No, that noise is Jerry's 'Boys' old home finally being demolished nearly a year after they opened the doors of their new gaudy monstrosity, stripper cages and all.  You remember the new stadium right?  Its the one with that huge TV screen?  The one that was opened with a loss to the Giants?  Yeah, that's the one. 

Videos of Texas Stadium's implosion are all over the web (google "Texas Stadium implosion" and take your pick), and frankly, I can't get enough of them.  They combine two spectacles that I always enjoy watching: building implosions and well, watching Texas Stadium collapse. 

Today I found a video on the Cowboys' official site that is truly pretty amazing though.  They set cameras up in such a way that they had a 360 degree view of the implosion and then linked the videos so you can actually manually move the perspective around as it is playing - just like the 360 still photos that you've probably already used online (like on Google maps, for instance).  I don't think I've ever seen this done with video, and it's pretty amazing.

Watch the video a few times, but be sure take a look with the camera facing down the field directly into the oncoming debris. 

I wanted to make some joke linking the building collapse to that fat bastard, and noted cheater Flozell Adams, but it just seems hollow after the Cowboys released him last month.  So I'll just say this: Flozell Adams is a fat bastard and a cheater.
