Food: The old Brendan Byrne/CAA tailgate. Nothing like playoff time in May, rolling up to the parking lot and seeing the grills out in full force. The single most missed thing for me from that place. (I also miss getting out of the arena immediately. Who the hell designed the clusterfvck that is Prudential Center in terms of exiting? The architect should be shot)



Do you not remember the cattle like shuffling to the exits on a particularly full game in the CAA?

I never really had a problem exiting. There was what, Gates A, B, C, D with about 12 doors at each one. I was out the door and in my car in a flash....

Exiting the building was one thing, exiting the complex was another. Especially when they made you drive all the way around the Meadowlands going .5 KM per hour to get to one little highway entrance.

You fellas had to be strategic! Park in a location nearest the exit towards where you needed to be. I got on 3 West in the blink of an eye on most night leaving the old barn...
