Brick house

    Just when you thought Comcast-Spectacor couldn’t make any more money out of the skeletal remains of its venerable stadium, the company makes this last minute dash for cash:

    After the wrecking ball begins demolishing the building tomorrow, fans can purchase individual bricks from the stadium for $39.95.  People can order them in person tomorrow or online.

    According to the company: “These limited-edition bricks sit on a wood base and contain an official certificate of authenticity. They will be shipped four to six weeks after the final demolition in a commemorative Remember The Spectrum box. The bricks may vary in color, style and condition due to location and sun exposure. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation.”

    And in case you hadn’t heard, the massive entertainment center proposed to sit on the Spectrum site is now massively scaled back.
