    In Philly - Should I go to the Palestra?

    I'm in Philly for the night. Is it worth heading down to the Palestra to see LaSalle vs Penn?
    I put the X in Texas. @fleckd.

    Yes, yes and YES!

    Classic Historical building. Make sure you walk all around the concourse.

    I went there about 10 years ago when Xavier beat Saint Joe's at the Palestra. I forgot to give myself the guided tour of the concourse, though.

    Well that was fun. I sat in the third row behind the LaSalle bench. Took some time before the game to walk around and read the info in the concourses.
    Proof I was there (see blue running man shirt behind the bench): http://www.pennathletics.com/news/20...-la-salle.aspx

    The game wasn't heavily attended and there were no streamers but you can tell it's a special place. A couple times I got a similar vibe as I have at Wrigley.

    I recommend any basketball fan visit if you have a chance.
