I moved out of the area many years ago but one thing I remember from my youth was how the Coliseum came up with that great idea for having a separate entrance and pick up/drop off area for parents to get their kids to the game. It definitely helped grow the fan base in the early years. My dad would drop my brother and I off at the game, go home, and come back to pick us up after the game, all for free. It made it safe for younger fans to go to a game. I don't know if it still exists (I left the area in the late 70's when we moved out of state) but it was the only such amenity I never saw at any other major arena.

My biggest personal memory for attending a game was being in the stands the night Trots broke the rookie scoring record (I believe against the Kings).
