Watch the Georgia Dome implode in an hour and a half

The Falcons’ home for 25 years will be a pile of rubble soon.

The Georgia Dome was host to the Olympics, the Final Four, a Super Bowl, and some of the greatest moments in the history of the Atlanta Falcons. It has, unfortunately, reached the end of its life.

At 7:30 a.m. this very morning, the Georgia Dome will be imploded, likely with the help of some pretty serious explosives. The chances of it collapsing and creating a tiny black hole are (I hope) quite small, but at the end of the process, the stadium will be little more than rubble.

It’s a sad end for a stadium that hosted some genuinely tremendous moments, including multiple NFC Conference Championship Games, but Mercedes-Benz Stadium is the new, state-of-the-art venue in town, and there’s not enough room for both.
