Pacquiao-Mayweather Saga Continues - ESPN Video


When it was announced that negotiations had started for this bout I thought that they would have along drawn out process. With Haggling over money, ring size, glove size, and what weight the bout would be contested at. Much to my surprise all those issues were agreed upon almost immediately.

Then last week it came out that they couldn't come to an agreement on drug testing protocol. Surely they wouldn't walk away from a 150 million dollar fight over drug testing? Well it's starting to look that way

The Pontiac Silver Dome

The Pontiac silver Dome was built in 1975 at a cost of 55 million dollars.
Over the years it has hosted a Superbowl numerous Detroit Lions thanksgiving day games. It held 93,000 when Pope John Paul II Visited and almost as many when Hulk Hogan body slammed Andre the Giant and Wrestle Mania III.

With all that history you would think it would have been a valuable asset. It wasn't.
The dome and the surrounding property sold at auction in November for $583,000(not a misprint).

Here it is on wikipedia
