Found July 03, 2012 on The Last Angry Fan:
It took workers nine months to make the Civic Arena, the Pittsburgh Penguins’ former home affectionately nicknamed “The Igloo,” go from this… …to this, a big pile of dirt and rubble and emptiness. Now, no one would be expected to sit through nine months worth of video or photos of each stage of demolition, because really, who has the time or want to undertake such a Herculean and dreadfully boring expedition. But thanks to YouTube user DAYGraphics2012, an enterprising individual who set up a camera to record the daily progress of the dismantling of The Igloo, we have this stunning time-lapse video of the old arena as it goes from usable structure and site of many great sports memories, to a giant expanse of nothingness. That was amazing, efficient, and altogether sad at the same time. [H/T to Puck Daddy]
