Silverdome failure creates lots of digital lolz
As you’re probably aware, it’s been quite a hectic news week here in Michigan.
But of all the stories bouncing around the media echo chamber, without a doubt, my favorite Michigan-centric of the week has been the failed implosion of the much maligned and neglected Pontiac Silverdome.
See video below.
To be honest, it really wasn’t the failed implosion itself, but rather the scores of supposed Facebook events created to help bring the Silverdome down.
Here’s just a few, in no particular order. And mind you, people took time to make these, most with a pretty funny graphic.
