It was a high profile event. Thousands of people came out early to watch. But like the best laid plans of mice and men, it didn't go as planned for the demolition crews in Detroit when the Pontiac Silverdome, former home of the Detroit Pistons and Lions, failed to come down.

A few took to Twitter to register their jokes:
