Video: Vet demolition 10 years ago today

You know that parking lot across from the other parking lot on Pattison Avenue between Broad Street and 11th Street?

That used to be a ballpark. A multi-sport behemoth of concrete and Astroturf which hosted the Phillies, Eagles, Stars, two failed NASL soccer teams and Temple football.

Ten years ago today, Veterans Stadium was imploded, a relic of a bygone era passing into history.

It blowed up good.

For even the hardiest football fans, getting up at the crack of dawn on a Sunday morning to see the place where you cursed out Cowboys fans for generations reduced to clouds of dust must have been a difficult thing.
