Warming up at The Pit

EUGENE, Ore. — Here I am at McArthur Court (aka “The Pit” or “The Mac”) 1 1/2 hours before tonight’s WSU-Oregon basketball game. It’s quite the arena — very old but also very cool. Old metal seats. Old megaphone-style speakers. Old staircases. The building has windows from the good ol’ days, but they’re blacked-out now. I made it up to the third level — way up at the rafters — to take a look-see. It was like a maze getting up there, but there’s not a bad seat in the house (unless you’re sitting behind a support column). I took some video to piece together later, but for now I just took a picture with my cell phone.
