.......is it true?

Smizik did a column today and solicited anecdotes of fans memories of the igloo.

Maybe we can get some better ones here.

I attended a few Condors/Pipers games. It was a real hoot at the time to see pro basketball in the early 70's during HS even if there was only a few hundered folks in the stands. Did see the exhibition game between the mIlwaukee Bucks and Jabbar. However, Jabbar did not play. He had been pked in the eye a couple of nights earlier. It also signaled the time when he wore the protective glasses. Also attended a few Pens games. This was back when if the house was half full it was a big night. Pierre Larouche was the draw and he was really good. 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-)

Yes it is coming down. There is a small but vocal minority who has been trying to fight it but they have run out of appeals.

I attended several Pens games back in the 90's before I concluded that I just didn't care for hockey. Also saw several Pitt basketball games there.

I remember it most for concerts. The Beach Boys was my first one back in '75. Van Halen/Black Sabbath and Lynryd Skynrd/Molly Hatchett were a couple of the more memorable ones.
