The grand old lady might be coming down! Stupid arse Wilma! I first went there in 1980 and have been to tons of games both Cane and Dolphins over the years. The Fins have never been the same since they left the Orange Bowl. It's an old dump but damnit it's our old dump!

Miami Considers Proposal To Tear Down Orange Bowl
Facility Suffered Damage During Hurricane Wilma

POSTED: 8:56 am EST November 30, 2005

MIAMI -- The city of Miami is considering a proposal to tear down the historic Orange Bowl stadium.

The stadium, which was built in 1936, suffered structural damage when Hurricane Wilma hit South Florida on Oct. 24.

Miami City Manager Joe Arriola said city officials have not discussed the proposal with the University of Miami, which uses the stadium for its home football games.

Arriola said officials are concerned about the structural integrity of the stadium. City officials could decide to make repairs to the facility or tear it down.

At a game on Oct. 29, just days after Wilma, UM fans were moved from the upper deck of the stadium as a safety precaution even though city officials deemed the facility structurally safe after Wilma passed through.

NBC 6's Hank Tester will have more on this story at noon. Watch live beginning at 11:58 a.m., Newsnet @ Noon.

That would be a shame. The OB has certainly seen it's fair share of classic games.
