How Reunion Arena Fall Down, Go Boom

Patrick spent the better part of the morning watching A&R Demolition crews claw at the "legs" of Reunion Arena's roof in the anticipation that the sucker would lean into a controlled drop rather than just, ya know, collapse. But, as evidenced by this video from Friend of Unfair Park "Human Being," that's not exactly how things worked out.

Update: I originally posted the KXAS-Channel 5 video, which is available here. This one's better.
