Crews Implode Colts' Former Home

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indianapolis Colts' former home is now a pile of rubble.

Crews imploded the RCA Dome just after 9:30 a.m. Saturday by setting off 800 charges to bring down the facility's upper floors in about 25 seconds.

The stadium was originally named the Hoosier Dome and had stood on the city's skyline since the Colts moved to Indianapolis in 1984. It had become the NFL's smallest stadium.

The Colts moved into the new Lucas Oil Stadium this season. The old dome is making way for an expanded convention center.
