The venerable Spectrum in South Philly is set to be demolished to make way for a new hotel/retail/entertainment complex. For years the Spectrum was home to the Flyers and Sixers and is the last Philly sports venue to host a championship team (83 Sixers though they won the championship on the Lakers home court). 

The Spectrum was where I saw the Temptations, the Jackson Five, Disney on Ice and the circus. It was a pretty cool place that holds some nice memories for many of us Philly folk.

Perhaps more importantly, that's also where Rocky fought Apollo.
