Three Rivers Stadium: Ten Years Later
I can still remember the morning. It was a cold winter morning in the burgh and I awoke to what I thought were bombs being dropped. It took me a second to realize what was actually going on and when I came to, I realized it was the stadium being imploded. On this day ten years ago the historic Three Rivers Stadium was imploded to the ground. The stadium opened on July 16, 1970, as the future home for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates, replacing their former home Forbes Field.
