Papa Cass, a BG Alum who blogs from Cleveland, has a nice post on the end of an era at Anderson Arena. Must read for the Falcon Nation.
Anderson Arena has been Northwest Ohio's answer to Boston Garden, Chicago Stadium and any other old, dark house of the masses that has since been consigned to history in favor of the bigger and, supposedly, the better. It is small, cramped and musty in places. Layers of flaking paint have turned some of the handrails and bleachers into a mosaic of orange, black, and in places, green.
