very well written piece tony! both the glory and the sadness. i myself almost get teary eyed driving by milford jai alai which was a castle and is now a landscapers worst nightmare. then 1 mile up the street i pass the old amature where i spent some of the most joyous days of my life and met some of the best guys god created. [strange and some say demented] but genuine friends. its gotten to the point that i take the merit pkway rather than 95 just so i dont have to see the buildings that will never be the source of joy they once were. god help jai alai.
