All the children say, "We don't need another hero,
We don't need to know the way home,
All we want is life beyond the silverdome."

"But no one can destroy what happened here, what was achieved here."

Jesus, it's a fucking sports stadium. Nothing was "achieved". There's nothing grandiose or heroic about sports.

For some truly artistic and awe-inspiring BMX style riding, one need look no further than the inspired riding skills of Danny MacAskill

The narration is a little bit over the top, like NFL Films or one of those Detroit-themed Chrysler commercials, and, kind of like when I play a Tony Hawk game, I'm a little bit surprised that the people who abandoned the Silverdome left so many ramps lying around.

Still, though, BMX tricks and urban decay are two things I like very much, so I also like this thing.

For some reason I have a thirst that can only be quenched by a delicious crisp Red Bull energy drink.

I've never understood the product shot.
Surely Red Bull are so utterly synonymous with this sort of thing now they don't need that particular record scratch.
