Best Guess for When Mile High Stadium Will Disappear (2001)

From the hearts of Bronco fans, never. From the sportscasters' lips, August 20

Three weeks before the Broncos' first home game of the official NFL season, a month after the 'N Sync gang has left Mile High and about a minute after the Broncos's pre-season face-off against Dallas on August 19, Mayor Wellington Webb will finally relent, acknowledge that Invesco Field at Mile High is as good as finished, and allow the Metropolitan Football Stadium District to demolish Mile High. Just in time, of course, to create plenty of VIP parking for the start of the season -- and prevent any embarrassing remnants of the old stadium from showing up on national TV.
