The permanent label on the door outside this field level “Media Filing Center” suggests that on game days, the space is used as a “Photographer’s Workroom,” but I can attest it doesn’t look all that different from a room just down the hall where they garage Mile High’s groundskeeping equipment.

I must say, the lack of creature comforts certainly encourage speedy filing. Take note, Arianna.
