This video probably means more to me than to you, but it's a fun watch if you like seeing things get pulled down. That's the Giants Stadium press box coming down, a home to so many of us reporters starting with the Jim Fassel era, when they turned the old, lower box into luxury suites.
It was the object of plenty of jokes because of its distance from the field. It took six seconds for a beam of light to travel from the field to the press box. We were the only team whose reporters could poop on the pigeons' head.
I'll miss the helicopter flyovers. They came past just above our eye level, and we could look right into the belly of the machine.
It had its faults. But it was home to so many of us, so permit me this one sentimental moment.
By the way, that guy running in the middle of the shot as the box is crashing down? That's me. Forgot my pen up there. Dang!
