I saw the Elton John "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" show there in fall of '74. Still to this day about the best show I have ever seen.As a freshman in '75, I was at almost every game at Stokely that the "Ernie and Bernie Show" played. What great basketball!! I remember we felt so big time when we made the cover of Sports Illustrated.During the World's Fair of 1980, my father and I made a day of it one Saturday. We had lunch in the Sunsphere (crown jewel of any vacation...ha) and then I scalped front row tickets for an NBA exhibition game that night at Stokely. It wasn't just any game...Celtics vs Sixers. Last preseason game before the regular season started so ALL the stars played. Bird, Dr. J, McHale, Parrish, Malone, etc. What a game!! 102-100 Celtics. My dad was in awe.I moved to ATL for a teaching/coaching position, but I always came back for home football games. Many times I would take a buddy with me to see the game then I would tour them through Stokely (it was always open).Memories of SAC are priceless to me.
