Decillion: groppet: Paintball arena?Post apocalyptic zombie outbreak paintball theme park.
Super Chronic: Astrodome preservationist? That's a thing?Kind of ironic considering the Astrodome was emblematic of an aesthetic movement that was a giant "FU" to preservationists everywhere. It was the Stadium of the Future! Well, folks, we're in the future now and we decided your stadium is an eyesore; sorry.
lilbjorn: Build a new baseball park and see if you can induce a professional team to come to Houston.
Straight Outta Wells Branch: LET. IT. PLAY.LET. IT. PLAY.
Uzzah: Let's skip ahead in the recursion a bit: tear it down, make the park honoring the Astrodome, then tear down the park to build a New Astrodome on it. Included in the New Astrodome is a small park honoring the park that honored the old Astrodome.
mikaloyd: Houston has large thriving Hispanic and gay communities, so why not turn it into a soccer stadium? BBVA where the MLS Houston Dynamo play only seats 27000 people. Since the upsurge in soccer popularity during this world cup is here to stay put the Dynamo in a bigger home. An AstroHome.
AdamK: just to stay consistent with the rest of houston, turn it into a parking lot

Really? Let me Wikipedia that for you.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detention_pondA detention basin or retarding basin is an excavated area installed on, or adjacent to, tributaries of rivers, streams, lakes or bays to protect against flooding and, in some cases, downstream erosion by storing water for a limited period of a time. These basins are also called "dry ponds", "holding ponds" or "dry detention basins" if no permanent pool of water exists.
