CL Video: Monster Jam 2010

The Georgia Dome transformed into a modern Colosseum and Gladiator games were replaced with monster trucks as the 2010 Monster Jam hit Atlanta this past Saturday. More than 60,000 people looked on the spectacle of Americana and destruction while a toxic cloud of smoke filled the Dome.

A reader sitting behind CL staff photographer Joeff Davis left a comment on the Monster Jam photo gallery telling Davis to "lighten up" and to "do yourself a favor and go hug a tree and drive your hybrid back to midtown."

Maybe Joeff does need to lighten up. Maybe there is some beauty in the complete destruction of the giant machines we build and worship. Maybe we need to demolish these "monsters" before they destroy us. Or maybe it's nice to know that the human nature of 60,000 Atlantans really isn't so different than the thousands of Roman spectators nearly two millennia ago. Or maybe it's wasteful and violent. Decide for yourself.
