Now if we could get the AT&T Longlines Building covered in flashing billboards, we'd have something.  :P
There is no fifth destination.

I like the signs.  I have not seen them at night though.

You can see the sign on EB 670, though most people driving through that area are in freak out mode, so most will not see or be able to read the sign from the interstate.

I just saw them (no I was not coming back from the D. Cook lovefest)...they don't seem too bright....I think those signs are needed for a major arena.

If you mean the one on the right, it's the sign for the Hotel President along the side of their building.

That's Sprint Center's laser defense system.

Shaft?  Couldn't you use...I don't know...tower?  pillar?  beam?

What's the red pillar of light
That looks like a sex machine through the night
(Shaft!)
You're damn right

What is the beam
That would risk its neck for his brother beam?
(Shaft!)
Can ya dig it?

What's the light that won't burn out
When the power all goes out
(Shaft!)
Right on

You see this light Shaft is a bad mother--
(Shut your mouth)
But I'm talkin' about Shaft
(Then we can dig it)

It's a complicated beam
But no else questions it but our Annie
(Red Shaft)

Hey Scooter, you should post these pics on sprintcentermoments.com. They're great behind the scenes photos I think a lot of people who haven't been to SC would love to see them!

Future bookings are the lowest in a while, only 7 touring events booked according to pollstar.  There are usually about 20.  Though basketball season is coming up.
