Stopped by the Verizon Wireless Center on Thursday afternoon to check out the progress and snap a few pictures. Purple makes a rather dramatic difference from the old red and blue seats. The new boards are being installed as well. I can only assume they'll be flooding and painting the ice soon. For some short video clips on the progress, go here.
