With the Cavs season on our minds this week, we published the story of how the floor of the Richfield Coliseum ended up at a small Christian school in Virginia. Check that one out.

And while you're at it, listen to this Bruce Springsteen show from 1978, performed and recorded just above that legendary floor. 

Known as the "Firecracker Show," 12/31/78 rang in the New Year with a firecracker exploding in Bruce's face onstage.
