LOOK: Snowy remains of Pontiac Silverdome will send chills down your spine

For years, the Pontiac Silverdome was the home of the Detroit Lions and now it is no more. In December, the Silverdome was imploded and for those of you who have taken the time to drive by, you have probably felt the same funny feeling in your stomach that I have.

Take a look for yourself.
