Of course Skullboy! I live a few minutes from where it was. This is a depressing thread. I'm sad to see the Sears Tower name go away, but it's hardly surprising. I just don't understand why they're giving naming rights to a company that is occupying less that 4% of the available space. Very strange.

I remember a couple of field trips to the Sears Tower and my favorite memory of those was the fast elevator ride down. We quickly figured out ('cause we were 9 years old or so) that if you jump up in the air, you get a little hang-time. The teacher would go nuts because as an adult, they weren't as secure about the elevator being able to handle 12 kids jumping up and down like crazy.
Later, when I was older, I was walking the Sears Tower's sidewalk and was making my way around the corner. As soon as I rounded the corner the wind pushed me right on my butt! I didn't realize the wind velocity that happens at ground level around a structure so huge like that. It was awesome!
