Blow it up so we can fish and go to Wal Mart!
Birmingham, Al Mayor Larry Langford(D) said Saturday afternoon that they will blow up the 67,000 seat Legion Field in two years when the new 60,000 seat dome is completed. He said once thats completed. Their going to build a lake,Wal Mart(yes I know....build a wal mart where Bear Bryant once walked? I guess the ghosts of General Neyland and Shug Jordan put the Mayor up to that) and affordable housing where Legion Field now stands. Im sure the older generation of Auburn and Tennessee fans will rejoice when that happens. But it sure will look strange going down I-65 through Birmingham and looking over and seeing a lake and a Wal Mart where so many great SEC games were once played.
