    I know some of you guys don't like Simmons, but I think he's hilarious.

    The funny thing is that it probably would have sold for way more had it been listed on Ebay. Or even Craigslist. Silverdome: call 1-800-SIL-VDME. No smoking. Pets allowed.

    For the first event, I would suggest a cage match between a drunk Ron Artest and that Godzilla robot that eats cars.

    I was just thinking that Ben vs Artest hype would sell out the dome and pay back our full investment...

    Then a Tiger vs all of the hostesses and waitresses I slept with before grudge match..clubs of their choice...

    That place would make a crazy indoor water park resort.

    The roof probably leaks so bad, it probably wouldn't cost anything to make it happen. I would maybe place some above ground pools on the rooftop to capture all the rain water. Then just let her flow as needed. Maybe even have it all flow into a pipe at the bottom of the dome that gets funneled back up to the top. The pressure created by the gravity of the falling water would push the water back up the other side like a hydraulic lift. Just add some chlorine to kill all the body germs for each rinse cycle and you're good to go.

    After the Lions left there were still a lot of events in the Dome. Like sporting events and gun and knife shoes. If there were events going on you could skate with the heat on if not the heat was off. Seems like they could cover the cost of operation with things like this.

    I bet Tiger's wife would like to have a pair of those.

    I would think they would cause a golfer to slice the ball.

    Never mind the water park idea. Re-thought it and decided the icicles accumulating on the roof would eventually kill a number of patrons. Heaven knows...Detroit/Pontiac/Michigan doesn't need more bad press :sssh:

    Kind of a contradiction which means its probably happening. What a bunch of losers. Just bulldoze the thing and be done with it.

    Kind of hard to wrap though.

    You guys may be on to something... a good entrepreneur would come up with some "Go get em Tiger" Stocking stuffers.

    Seriously I hope they just leave the man and his family alone...
    Didn't Kobe break out a one carrot diamond?
    Not condoning what "may or may not" have happened but the press needs to get outta his bidness.... family stuff needs to stay inside.

    I don't think so. This man made lots of money as a golfer, but that pales in comparison to what he made off his image. His supposed squeaky clean image.
    I say let the buzzards have at him. Work him over til he's just able to make his millions golfing, but his overall image no longer sells. I certainly don't need an accounting of his personal life, but it's time to knock him off his lofty marketing perch. I'm not interested in products marketed by someone who, when his wife was 7 months pregnant, was out looking for bootie....:gun1:

    I guess the minor league soccer thing didn't pan out.

    Wow.
    Those pictures make it look like they just headed for the exits right after a game and never looked back, - leaving the dome to rot.
    That's some post-apocalyptic stuff man!

    I'd love to have a piece of the turf where Barry filmed his highlight reel.
    I'd also like a big chunk of the material that they used for the roof to make some sort of a canopy for my deck.

    I'd take some of the seats. They must be bolted in pretty tight.

    Loc-tite makes a product or ten that helps back off seized bolts.
