The wrecking ball hit the walls of The Spectrum in Philadelphia this week en route to its demolition.

The venerable arena at Broad and Pattiston Streets holds memories for those who attended events there over the years. It is easy to wax nostalgic when an old stadium is torn down; it is as if a part of our lives is being removed with it.

The Spectrum opened in the Fall of 1967. The name was meant to evoke a wide range of events to be held within its confines.

BOB FORD/TIMES NEWS Northern Lehigh's defense will center around, front, from left, Kyle Greenawald, Kyle Schomp and Mike Buresh. Back, same order, David Getz, Kirk Bender and Trevor Yashur, when it takes the field against Wilkes-Barre GAR on Friday.

Northern Lehigh's first goal entering the 2010 football season was to win the Colonial League title and it did.

The next goal on the list for the Bulldogs was to win the District 11 Class 2A championship and they did.

Now, back in the state playoffs for the first time since they made it to the PIAA championship in 2003, they want to keep their season going a bit longer.

Heading into the final week of our Grid Picks, I guess 13 games is a bit too much to make up on leader Andy Steinmetz at this point, so I guess I'll just have to settle on setting my sights on trying to pass Emmett McCall and staying ahead of TJ Engle and Bob Ford. With a 10-game cushion over Ford, I think I can safely say I won't finish last unless I completely collapse.
