Spectrum Arena Operations’ Director, Ernie Thompson, exits the venue after a snow storm blanketed Philadelphia. Ernie began working at the Spectrum in the fall of 1973 (when I started full time). The very first time Ernie participated in the process of making the Flyers’ ice, he wore a pair of golf shoes. Ernie, who had previously had worked in Nevada, was an enthusiastic player in the poker games with stagehands during concert nights.© Roger Barone 1977/2014
