2010 Phungo Cards - The Spectrum
2010 Phungo Black Frame Insert - the Spectrum
Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers will play the last home game of their very successful 2009-2010 campaign.
The Flyers now play their home games in the plush confines of the oft renamed Wachovia Center. The last time the Flyers won the Stanley Cup, they played across the parking lot in the much cozier Spectrum.
The Spectrum held it's last sports event about a year ago. There have been several other closing concerts and other closing events since then. The buildings days are numbered, and I will miss it. Between games, concerts and other events I estimate I visited the Spectrum about two dozen times. I saw my first NHL and NBA games there - I also saw many minor league sporting events and college hoop games at the arena. The concerts I saw there included several rockers from the Jurrassic era such as Jerry Garcia, Rush, and Tom Petty.
Hopefully tonight the Flyers will keep their season alive and add to the legacy of their new home.
