Not sure what it is about human nature, but it seems we’re genetically hard-wired for an attraction to things that go BOOM! Now, a new contest is offering one lucky person what very well may be the ultimate extraordinary experience: A chance to set off an explosion that will literally bring the house down.
You see, the folks at Kraft Foods have just signed a deal that will allow the winner of an essay contest to push a button that will turn Texas Stadium, former home of the Dallas Cowboys, into a pile of rubble. The blast that triggers the implosion is scheduled to happen this spring in front of a crowd of former players, coaches, and fans who have understandably fond memories of the historic 65,000-seat stadium.
