Holy Shnike’s!  Have you seen any photos of the new arena in Las Vegas?  It’s called the Sphere and the thing is utterly amazing.  It has millions and millions of LED lights on the outside and inside of the arena…giving it the potential to transform into any graphic you can think of.  Like the eyeball below.

It is already being called a modern marvel.  James Dolan, who own Madison Square Garden, is the man behind this venue.  While I’ve been critical of Dolan as a Knicks owner, this building is insane.

Having the possibility to morph from an eyeball to a snow globe while being a full-sized facility is mind-boggling.  WOW!
