See you in HELL, Metrodome

The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of such nightmares as the 1987 ALCS and Game 163, is finally receiving its just due, thanks to 84 charges of dynamite.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, better known as Hell on earth to the Detroit Tigers and their fans, was dynamited Sunday as its long overdue demolition continues post haste. The concrete rim which once held up the roof (which was itself deflated in January) was imploded, to my everlasting glee. But remaining a pain in the ass to the bitter end, the HomerDome refused to come down completely.

Seeing the HorrorDome go up in smoke doesn't cushion the pain of all the bizarre, painful, God awful losses the Tigers suffered in that garbage bag-lined, Teflon topped bunker impersonating a big league stadium. But it does help the healing. I hope to one day dance on the grave of the BaggieDome.

May the Metrodome rot in Hell. It will not be missed.
