I hit up the opening night for the new arena and am still floored. Its just absolutely amazing, everything about it. I snapped these pics of the action for opening night. Hopefully Nyles will post up his behind the scenes shots from earlier this week too. The night turned out all the better since the Ducks beat the Trojans!!!

 

Disclaimer: I don't really care if you don't like the court or the Ducks, so please keep those comments to yourself.

 

Here we go!

Uncle Phil gave a speech to start the night. His whole family was there, as were his sons widow and their kids, along with all of Matt's friends he grew up with and a lot of Phil's family too. They were all pretty emotional, i think this building and the dedication to his son really means a lot to him.
