It wasn't the most glamorous sendoff, and the Silverdome had a lot of bad years in disrepair after Ford Field was built, but it's over now.
Pontiac's former House of Lions is the second "classic" dome to be demolished in the last 30 days, as the Georgia Dome was also leveled in favor of the Falcons' new home, Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
