TD Garden is going to look a little different this season, and it might be for the best.
The home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics' shared a side-by-side photo of the old, black-and-gold seats compared to the new all-black seating.
Take a look.

After three months of hard work, The Garden notes that this is just the first round of improvements coming to the arena. The upgrades include new seating (as mentioned above), improvements to the Garden HDX and an all-new entertainment level called "Rafters."
The $100 million dollar investment is only about halfway done, and will take at least another year to finish. This whopping investment also will bring more space and food options to the loge and balcony seating areas, locker room upgrades and much more.
The Garden opened in 1995, then as the Fleet Center, as a replacement for the original Boston Garden, and the black-and-gold seats were a staple in the arena since it first opened.
Unfortunately, if you were a fan of the gold seating, you'll have to suck it up and enjoy the rest of the upgrades. Besides, those new seats do look comfortable.
