Baseball Fan will win chance to implode Busch Stadium

Would you buy a $10 raffle ticket for a chance to implode Busch Stadium? Busch Stadium has been the home of the Cardinals since 1966!! I couldn't do it since I saw my first game there!

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It sounds like a Chicago Cubs fan's dream come true: a contest with a chance to trigger the implosion that will take down the St. Louis Cardinals' Busch Stadium.

The St. Louis Cardinals will begin selling $10 raffle tickets on the team's Web site Friday. The raffle tickets also will be available at home games starting Sept. 6. Proceeds will benefit two charities, the United Way of Greater St. Louis and Cardinals Care, the team's charitable arm.

From the drawing, 250 winners will be invited to a Busch Stadium "Implosion Party" on the morning the stadium will be taken down. That date will be set after the season ends.

Out of those 250, one winner will be picked to trigger the implosion of Busch Stadium.

I totally want to do it! Besides, even if you don't get to push the button, then you have a chance for the best seats in the house for it to go down!

I actually heard that they are not going to implode it because it is so close to the new stadium. They are afraid it may make the new stadium structurally unsound or cause problems with the effects of the implosion. I heard they are going to take a wrecking ball to it instead.

Either way, i don't think i could do it either... first and only major league baseball games i've seen have been there.

Great reason to blow it up....Red Sox beat our Cardinals!! No, I wish the stadium could stay, but things change.

After thinking about what Dicecca112 said I agree that we need to blow it up and I am going to buy a ticket on behalf of LR!

I still can't believe that they are going to tear down Busch Stadium. Is there any reason to demolish it besides not having enough high dollar booths?
