This was actually photographed in 1991, well before the demolition. It really was a sh-thole.

The Philadelphia Spectrum, the 18,000 indoor arena and site of Shaun Cassidy's seminal 1979 concert, which was demolished today after being a blight on South Philly since the Nixon Administration, is now baffling scientists world-wide, as it leaves behind a cherished part of its history.

"It still smells like piss," said Keyport, NJ resident Anthony Rosania, who escaped Philadelphia in 1987 after his neighborhood went to sh-t. "The building was destroyed, and it still reeks like a f--king cat's litterbox."

The arena, affectionately known as 'The Rectum' by the unwashed masses, opened in the fall of 1967 as part of what came to be known as The Philadelphia's Italian-American Sports Complex, or Dagoland, and housed mediocre teams fielded by the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers, as well as the Philadelphia Wings, Phantoms, KiXX, Bulldogs, Phreedoms and Phever, whatever the phuck they were.

The arena was built by entrepreneur Ed Snider to bring an NHL team to Philadelphia. He drew the short straw and ended up with the Flyers.

The land will become a hotel, most likely frequented by transients and hookers. See Best Moments from Philadelphia's Spectrum, And One Spectrum-Related Murder. in TheSpoof's Magazine.
