A new home to the Steelers was opening on the North Side in 2001. But first, there was the business of imploding a Pittsburgh landmark for the last 30 years. On February 11th at 8:03am, one push of the button, and Three Rivers Stadium was a pile of steel and concrete. All those Pirates and Steelers memories. The concerts I saw (U2 twice, Genesis and Metallica/Guns N' Roses). And apparently, a few months after the stadium was completed, I attended the circus when I was three years old.
