Hurricane Sandy Brought Pieces of Old Municipal Stadium Out of Lake Erie

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 1:36 PM


That debris on the shores of Bratenahl in Cleveland isn't any normal debris. Those bricks are remnants from old Municipal Stadium, parts of which were used to build three reefs in Lake Erie after the cavernous former home of the Browns and Tribe was demolished.

Hurricane Sandy's sweep across our Great Lake brought the bricks up from the depths and plopped them on land, lucky little souvenirs for someone out there, and reminders of how lucky most of us are here compared to those in New York and New Jersey. Thoughts and prayers with the victims and all those in the hardest hit areas.
