Sports Arena’s crowning glory was ’75 NCAA Final Four – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Sez Me …

We are marking the 50th anniversary of the Sports Arena, which is nice, but probably shouldn’t be celebrated because we should have a new one. But that’s another matter for another welcoming electorate.

It’s now known as the Valley View Casino Center. No matter.

There have been terrific moments in that building, including Eamonn Coghlan’s shattering of the world indoor mile record (3:50.6) in 1981. It was magic. It remains the single most electric sporting moment I’ve been around here.
