The Pontiac Silverdome
Nov. 17, 2009: When the city of Pontiac, Mich., could not dig itself out of its deepening financial crisis, it decided to sell its 80,311-seat Silverdome stadium. Named for its distinctively shiny Teflon roof, the silverdome was home to the Detroit Lions and the Detroit Pistons. The stadium, which cost $55.7 million to open in 1975, sold for $583,000 to a Canadian real estate developer.
