Millrose Games at the Armory?

Interesting article in the NYTimes yesterday about the Millrose Games possibly moving to the Armory.

Obviously, since the Armory seats 4,000, you're going to see a lot of demand for those seats (last year's games had 7,000, making MSG look barren). And that kind of atmosphere - completely sold out track meet - will be intense.

Yet there's going to be something lost there. It's sad also that USATF may pull funding if the move occurs.

I'm from a generation that would watch Millrose on PBS TV growing up, and I've managed to catch it live once while here in NYC. It's a great meet, yet I understand when change has to happen. Hope it works out.
