Although the Pontiac Silverdome was scheduled to begin its first round of demolition Sunday, only a few support beams broke off, leaving the stadium intact.
The much-anticipated event left a lot of people feeling underwhelmed, and many took to Twitter for creative Silverdome implosion memes, especially ones related to the Detroit Lions.

My god. They tried to implode the Pontiac Silverdome just now. They explosions went off, and the old girl just stood there, smiled, and said, “Really?” #silverdome
