The decades-long home of the Dallas Cowboys will be turned to rubble.

The Irving City Council on Thursday night approved spending $5.9
million to implode hole-in-the-roof Texas Stadium.

The team this year began play in the new $1.15 billion Cowboys
Stadium in Arlington.

The Cowboys were 213-99 in regular-season and postseason games
at Texas Stadium since 1971.

The destruction could be a tourism draw for the Dallas area.

Irving city leaders want to work with travel companies to
attract fans to watch the demolition, at a date to be determined,
possibly from cities with ardent rivals of the Cowboys.

Maura Gast with the Irving Visitors and Convention Bureau and
says money raised by a possible "implosion auction" could go to
charity.
