I have great memories of the Spectrum: Bobbie Jones having his number retired before a Sixers game, Georgetown/Villanova overtime game with Mutombo and Mourning, Jane's Addiction's reunion concert the same night as the dumb Eagles playing the 49ers on MNF, 7th row tickets for Rush, back-to-back Phish shows while we sat in the very last row on the top level on the complete other side of the stage, Phantoms' Calder Cup victory, hanging out in the parking lot for Dead and Phish shows. Awww the memories.
