So I realize that with the holiday on Monday we weren’t able to post our weekly, favorite feature for Magnificent Metal Mondays. Not to worry though, I’ve taken it upon myself to go back in time or flashback on what I would have posted. Since, we are 
in Denver this coming METALCON why not talk about Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. I know, I know, you don’t want a corporate label attached to Mile High, but that is what sports has come to today. I am not a huge fan of the Broncos, most of you know why – there’s this team called the New England Patriots led by a quarterback better than Peyton Manning, yes you guessed it Tom Brady.
Some cool facts about Mile HIgh are the primary materials used. The materials include 85,000 cubic yards of concrete, 256 miles of post tensioning cable, 2.1 million square feet of asphalt paving, 200,000 pounds of aluminum, 12 million pounds of reinforcing steel, 12,000 tons of structural steel, 130,000 bricks, and 1.6 million masonry blocks. Impressive to say the least, and I will venture to say more impressive than their Super Bowl performance this past season. That’s an argument for another day though. To find out more information about the stadium click here.
