The Palestra Will Get Two Video Boards

Penn will add two video boards to the historic arena

The historical Palestra is a fixture in Philadelphia. It’s as much a part of this city as the William Penn statue, the Schuylkill or “How you doin’?” But, alas, Penn has announced that the arena will feature two video boards—with patented software that gives the display a nostalgic feel. In a way, the Scoop is almost disappointed to see such an important relic succumb to the unstoppable force of technology—soon, we’ll all be robots. [The 700 Level]
