OMG. Leaving Bowen was hands down, the BIGGEST mistake in EMU sports history. Why why why do we keep pretending that the Convo is suitable for EMU basketball? Swallow your pride, refurbish Bowen and bring basketball back! Keep booking concerts and graduations at the convo and keep making that money, the practice facility is 100% first class so we will still get our bang for our buck that way. GREAT VIDEO Nickle...(also reopen the Wooden Nickle and Spaghetti Bender too). Make EMU great again.04-cheers

Wow. You are really bringing back the past, but not realistic.

Tom Ciccarelli owned the Spaghetti Bender but he has been deceased for some time (believe it was around 2000).

Bob, the world doesn't stand still and we can't relive the past.
Tom was a good guy and I believe he once filled in and substitute taught a class I had in Strong Hall. Thursday night at the Bender, best times ever. In fact, that is where I watched the Sweet 16 game vs UNC! So much fun. Best place in town. We also had the Nickel and Theo's and if you couldn't find fun in Ypsi at that time, you weren't trying.
What memories hearing those names again! Theo's, Spaghetti Bender, The Nickel, Sidetracks, Stixx, Abe's, and who remembers Mr. Pizza $2.99 large pizzas, and Hot N Now, .39 cents burgers, fries, and drinks! And we WON MAC championships in football and basketball! Happy Easter and Happy Passover to everyone on this board!
