At the time I thought it was a fantastic arena. Once the Stapler was opened though it made the Pond look small and cheap.
I was at the first pre-season game there, Kings-Ducks, and I ran into Jimmy Fox in the concourse. I said "What do you think of this place?" "Real nice." me-"We need one like it now..." JF-"Pretty soon, I hope"

That first year the Pond was open I went to every Anaheim Bullfrogs game as well #Champs
