Vintage Video: Richfield Coliseum

WEWS has put together another vintage video montage, this time of the Richfield Coliseum.

The video is worth your time for two reasons: 1) The aerial shots of how bad traffic used to be — backed up for miles and miles on I-271 to the point where, according to rumor and lore, people sometimes ditched their cars and walked the rest of the way — and, 2) The shots of the Coliseum when it was under construction.

There are also some good color segments of the Cavs playing back in the 70's.
