Silverdome's bargain price reflects financial woes in Detroit suburb of Pontiac - washingtonpost.com

PONTIAC, MICH. -- Once this city had its own car, 23,000 busy factory workers and the $55.7 million Silverdome, a storied Teflon-coated stadium where the Detroit Lions played, Elvis Presley sang, WrestleMania's Hulk Hogan stalked and Pope John Paul II prayed.

Today, Pontiac is in such bad shape -- a $7 million deficit, roughly $100 million in debt -- that the state has declared a financial emergency and sent in a turnaround expert to oversee finances.

Dang;

I should have waited to buy a house. I could have bought the silverdome and lived there. Might be hard to find the kids somtimes though. Probably woudl not be much more expensive to heat.
