Dear, God, no.

The Wachovia Spectrum, former home of the Philadelphia Flyers and 76ers, is not long for this world. But before the wrecking ball demolishes this city institution, residents will have one last chance to go inside to…

TAKE WHATEVER THEY CAN GET THEIR HANDS ON!

From the press release:

“Comcast-Spectacor is allowing fans one-last opportunity to go inside the Spectrum on Saturday, November 6 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. for a “If You Can Carry It, You Can Keep It” event. Admission is $25 which includes a commemorative Spectrum crystal, as well as the opportunity to go onto the arena floor and take home a personal souvenir of the Spectrum.

Items available for the “If You Can Carry It, You Can Keep It” event include Spectrum folding chairs, used televisions, some office furniture, couches, computer equipment, and other collectibles. Items are first-come, first-served. Patrons will be allowed to take as much as they can carry (up to four chairs per person) with no re-entry into the arena. Tools and hand carts are prohibited. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation.”

Deadspin
sums this up pretty well:

“Basically, it'll be like Supermarket Sweep in an Office Depot. Except for the fact someone is going to die.”

Stay safe, Philly. Remember, it’s just a folding chair.
