Georgia Dome goes out with a bang in scheduled implosion

World Congress Center

The stage for some of the most iconic moments in sporting history was demolished on Tuesday - and every camera man worth his salt was prepared to capture it.

The Weather Channel might have captured the flawless shot of the Georgia Dome imploding after 25 years of use.

The Georgia Dome was imploded with almost 5,000 pounds of explosives Monday morning, just a little more than 25 years after opening.

It will take only 12 seconds for the 4,800 pounds of explosives and six miles of detonating cord to bring the structure down, according to WSB-TV. It has already been replaced by the $2.1 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium right next door.

LeBron says he's all for Reggie Jackson's free throw distraction
After Monday morning's shoot-around in the Motor City, James was asked about Jackson's antics at the stripe during Sunday's game. The Wizards were up by one point at the time, 113-112, and Arenas had a chance to give them a three-point cushion.

As the clock counted down and the first explosive detonated, an Atlanta bus pulled up directly in the cameraman's shot.

Despite the implosion this morning, some parts of the building remain intact.

If you watched the above video without sound, you must watch it again with sound to hear the producer absolutely freaking out. Are you. What the f***!
