Not many people can say their most memorable sports experience occurred while sitting on the concrete floor of a field house restroom.

Two five-gallon glass tanks rest in a closet under a hanging pair of black business suits and a collection of brightly colored Hawaiian shirts. Six-packs are stacked haphazardly around the closet door, dirty clothes are strewn over the floor and a road bike hangs on the opposite wall. The concealed space tucked away in the third-floor apartment on Watts Street would have been ideal for hiding alcohol during the Roaring 20s-a time when jazz music mingled with much-despised laws against manufacturing or distributing beer. But unless you live on East Campus, prohibition went out of fashion in the 1930s.
