The Silverdome hasn't hosted the Lions since 2001. The city of Pontiac auctioned it off in 2009 to the highest bidder. The highest bid was $550,000. "It was a bit surprising," the new owner said. "There were really very few bids."
The unused stadium went for $583,000 at auction, and could be the future home of an MLS team. That might sound cheap, but it's still 583,000 times more expensive than some other Detroit properties. [CNNMoney]
