age doesn't = historic ( mellon/IGLOO )



Some delusional people feel that Mellon arena "the Igloo" should not be demolished & that its a Historical Landmark. Age alone does not justify "HISTORICAL" status.  Not only is this a slap in the face to Mario, Mr. Burkle & the Pens organization its absolutely ridiculous. Numerous "ABSURD IDEAS" have been bantered about to REUSE the ol barn. What these people fail to realize is how much it costs for the upkeep for the igloo, not counting the money it would take to make it usable for said absurd ideas which include female rollerderby, inside blizzard themed waterpark, farmers market, offices, etc...Yes countless memories of our sports hero's, circus's, tractor pulls, concerts, Jean Claude Van Damme & SUDDEN DEATH...to my knowledge, the pope never visited, no other dignitaries...The Pens & SEA have 10 years to RE-develope the land for mix use, townhomes, offices, stores, etc...which = jobs. Also 1 of the voters on the board to DEMOLISH the site, made a perfect point, none of these DELUSIONAL people have come forward to BUY the IGLOO.... So please come to your senses & let the place be demolished, make way for new architecture & improvement to the area around our new barn, hotel, etc.....
