Drew Cleszynski over at StadiumReview.com (which does a pretty comprehensive job reviewing major and minor-league stadiums across North America) tackled a hockey-ready Staples Center this week. You can read the review here: http://stadiumjourney.com/stadiums/staples-center-s58/
Before I insert my thoughts, a disclaimer: I have been to Staples Center once as a fan (and for some reason, eight years later, I don’t remember the Sean Avery-Jarome Iginla fight).
That said, a lot of what was written came as news to me. Some things weren’t – and the fact that the laser show is green suddenly seems strange now. But covering up the retired Lakers jerseys during Kings games? Really?
Anyway, go check it out.
