Best Player We Hated To See Leave - 2010
Granted, it will be weird around here without Flozell Adams. And seeing Mike Modano in a Detroit Red Wings sweater will drive us crazier than bat shit. But on April 11 we lost a dear old friend that took hundreds of players' memories with it. A lot of us grew up with Texas Stadium, and were sad to see it go down. Just after dawn the world's most recognizable hole in the roof was imploded into a hole in the ground, symbolically tearing a hole in our heart. Christened by Tex Schramm, nurtured by Tom Landry and canonized by Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith, Texas Stadium was built by 17 National Football League Hall of Famers and destroyed by 2,700 pounds of dynamite. Just like that, in less than a minute, Texas' most recognizable architecture this side of The Alamo was gone. Texas Stadium, rest in pieces.
