relfecting on the move to the Yum

This time last year we were wondering what it would be like to watch Louisville basketball games in the Yum and not in Freedom Hall, and probably some of us were concerned that it wouldn't quite be the same.  I'm not sure that CC has had a sustained relfection on the move, but this seems like a good time to do so.  I consider myself surprised how little I missed Freedom Hall, which I'm sure had everything to do with how much I liked the new place (recrutis are apparently impressed too).  Aside from lacking history, the Yum Center provided a superior experience in every way, from the number seats bewtween the baslines to the remarkable ease of getting to and from games.  It was simply just a lot more fun to go downtown than to the fairgrounds.  I have many fond memories of Freedom Hall but, as a building, it was probably not the special place I had convinced myself it was.  It was designed for equestrian events, after all.  I watched enough games from the top of the endzone to realize as a child that better seating configurations were possible.   I personally experienced no drawbacks from the move.   And that's just as it relates to UofL.  Factor in that the arena is a catalyst for the ongoing transformation of Main St and the case is even stronger.  Thoughts?
