Once upon a time, the Pontiac Silverdome was home to the Detroit Lions, but they moved on to Ford Field, and the Silverdome became the stadium no one wanted. So, it sat there. In 2009, someone snapped it up for $583,000 , and the city hoped the developers would bring new life to the formerly great stadium. Nope. They let it sit some more. By 2013, the roof was so damaged that the entire field and seats got soaked with rain, snow, and urban explorers.
