The wife is getting fussy and I am out of excuses. "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) Ethos 7 Nov 2012, 8:11 am ya know if she's that fussy, have her do it. That'll cool her off. "I spent 90 percent of my money on women and drink. The rest I wasted." - George Best Oyster 7 Nov 2012, 8:13 am Yea, I'm gonna have to pass on that advice. "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) hodge 7 Nov 2012, 9:46 am Upvote for making me laugh. TennesseeJohn 7 Nov 2012, 6:18 pm you've never been married, have you..... GoBucks713 7 Nov 2012, 2:14 pm Before you go out to rake the leaves, leave a nice romantic trail of rose petals into the kitchen leading to the pile of dishes she needs to do. Don't forget to take your keys though, depending on her sense of humor. -The Aristocrats! Oyster 7 Nov 2012, 2:22 pm Actually, I sometimes will open the dishwasher and lift the door up and down while 'inspecting' it, then proclaim to her, 'Nope, it still works'. "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) bassplayer7770 7 Nov 2012, 2:45 pm *takes notes* pukindawg 8 Nov 2012, 6:02 am Also, whenever she asks you what you are looking at on-line, don't tell her. It seems women love mystery. Oyster 8 Nov 2012, 6:20 am And regularly delete the browser history to add to the mystery! "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) NObuck-I-inTEAM 7 Nov 2012, 7:13 am I chose other, because I will be watching waves crash on the beach on the shores of Kauai. We couldn't have picked a better weekend to go on vacation! cplunk 7 Nov 2012, 11:35 am Well played, sir rkylet83 7 Nov 2012, 7:35 am Other. Catching up on chores around the house : ( cplunk 7 Nov 2012, 7:38 am Other; I'll be watching myself shoot skeet and trap, then do chores. In a year where we can't make the championship anyway, all other teams are irrelevant to me. OSUBias 7 Nov 2012, 10:20 am I'm jealous of your "other". Knock 'em down! 7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing BuckeyeSki 7 Nov 2012, 10:22 am Banned from BlackShoeDiaries since 2008. Crime: Slander/Defamation of Character Judgement: Guilty cplunk 7 Nov 2012, 11:36 am Haha. I wish I could have Denard throw the skeet so they had more hang time and I'd never be able to anticipate where to aim. old_rasputin 7 Nov 2012, 7:46 am the carrier classic! I refuse to watch ttun. they only happen to be on the field when OSU plays. "We hate to lose, but when we do, rest assured we'll be back, and someone will pay the price." Coach Hayes carence 7 Nov 2012, 8:06 am Other because everyone in my life knows that I go to all of the games and it with it being the bye week, everyone scheduled their events for this weekend. Ethos 7 Nov 2012, 8:11 am I voted other, i'll be watching whatever movies the air industry decides to show on my way to the Fatherland. "I spent 90 percent of my money on women and drink. The rest I wasted." - George Best bassplayer7770 7 Nov 2012, 8:12 am I chose other mostly because I'll probably watch a few games. I'm certainly curious about Wisky and scUM, but some of the most intriguing matchups are Oregon State/Stanford, Texas A&M/Alabama, and PSU/Nebraska. Earle 7 Nov 2012, 9:11 am Other. Too much to do that has been put off. And speaking of bye weeks, I'm not crazy about not having an OSU game to watch, but I'm glad I don't have to suffer through another Brown's game this weekend. Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer? It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV). It's a little sweet for me though. Two is my limit. thatlillefty 7 Nov 2012, 9:14 am Texas A&M vs. Alabama rooting for the upset Alhan 7 Nov 2012, 10:02 am I voted other for this same reason. That said, The Oregon State/Stanford game should also be worth giving a lookie loo. "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke BuckeyeUro 7 Nov 2012, 6:45 pm same is here plus Oregon at Cal Alice in Aggieland 7 Nov 2012, 7:34 pm As the handle suggests, I'll be watching the Aggies as well. Should be a good game; I think A&M has only gotten better since the stupid losses to LSU and Florida, which both came at Kyle Field. Grad-school football fandom is the best: You celebrate when your adoptive team wins, and you don't really give a shit when they lose. daytonbuckeye 7 Nov 2012, 9:23 am Other. I need to finish remodeling the basement for the new TV room/mancave and it has to be done for November 24. 3 85 yards and a cloud of dust. Nappy Mod 7 Nov 2012, 9:33 am Other. I'm exercising my 2nd and 21st Amendment rights. I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face osubuckeye4life 7 Nov 2012, 7:09 pm Firearms and Booze nice! Tdizzle 7 Nov 2012, 9:37 am I will keep checking this site as to how the coaches r doing on the recruiting trail hodge 7 Nov 2012, 9:48 am Hopefully, I'll be able to catch a night game after an all-day IKEA and Jungle Jim's extravaganza in Cincinnati. I'm going to be fried. Alhan 7 Nov 2012, 10:03 am Jungle Jim's has to be the greatest place in the world. I'm jealous of that part, not so much on the IKEA front... "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke hodge 7 Nov 2012, 10:19 am Ehh, I like 'em both. IKEA's furnature may not be for everyone (and the "adult legos with non-intuitive instructions" isn't really endearing, either), but their value is without peer. GoBucks713 7 Nov 2012, 2:21 pm Don't forget about the fact that it's fun to people watch at IKEA, and also hear them try to pronounce the names of the merchandise. I like to hide in stuff and scare people when I'm there. -The Aristocrats! ArTbkward 7 Nov 2012, 2:53 pm Stock up on GL Christmas Ale while you're at Jungle Jim's. We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame... (Also, I'm not a dude) Alhan 7 Nov 2012, 3:11 pm Kroger near my house is selling Elevator Winter Warmer...yum! "Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke buckeyeEddie27 7 Nov 2012, 4:26 pm Goose Island Christmas Ale also very good. Need that in my life asap. I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there. BuckeyeSki 7 Nov 2012, 9:50 am Other: I'll be watching survival horror as I finish Resident Evil 6 Banned from BlackShoeDiaries since 2008. Crime: Slander/Defamation of Character Judgement: Guilty IBleedSandG 7 Nov 2012, 10:16 am Probably a little of everything. #GrindFor9 OSUBias 7 Nov 2012, 10:23 am Other: ever year we host a pre-thanksgiving thanksgiving with all of our friends. Normally they are treated to me locking myself in a room by myself to watch the game, in addition to the feast. This year I actually get to socialize a bit. So I'll be watching myself overeat and catchup with old friends. 7 yards and a cloud of dust is a beautiful thing MediBuck 7 Nov 2012, 10:24 am Other: Will be at the Stanford-Oregon St. game. I love that I can hear the sounds of cheering from Stanford stadium down the street but only go to one home game a year because I choose to stay home and watch OSU every other week of the season :) "There is a force that makes us all brothers, no one goes his way alone." --Woody Hayes RBuck Mod 7 Nov 2012, 10:26 am Anyone know if there's a Twilight Zone marathon on Saturday? Seriousely, I'll be doing a lot of surfing on the college games. Long live the southend. BeanvilleBuck 7 Nov 2012, 11:12 am I look forward to giving myself a much needed break from Buckeye gameday day-drinking that carries over way too late into the night...I'm getting too old for all that craziness when I am still hurting at work Wednesday. "Winning takes care of everything. - Woody Hayes" niblick 7 Nov 2012, 11:34 am hitting the casino on the bye week and playing poker ALL DAY buckeyeEddie27 7 Nov 2012, 12:12 pm Working during the day but soaking up as much football as possible afterwards. Def watching the Carrier Classic too. I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there. joel121270 7 Nov 2012, 12:35 pm Other, no OSU means I don't really care...will watch ND with the wife as she is a fan though later in the evening. BuckeyeCash22 7 Nov 2012, 1:00 pm Even though I'll be watching Wisconsin, I chose other because I don't give a crap about their defense.... I'm watching to see if Indiana can really pull it off.... Mike Honcho 7 Nov 2012, 1:30 pm Going to watch some future D1 kids in some HS playoff action Oyster 7 Nov 2012, 1:42 pm My sons team was bounced out last week. This will be the first Friday in 11 weeks we haven't been to a game. Not really sure what we will do with an open Friday night now. "Scrolling hurts my finger" (and FitzBuck was clearly the winner) LadyBuck 7 Nov 2012, 8:21 pm Watching the Carrer Classic is a good start. onetwentyeight 7 Nov 2012, 2:25 pm NOT the Big Ten that's for sure LOL. Nobody's sanity can handle that lljjgg 7 Nov 2012, 3:20 pm Yeah, to be completely honest, I'll probably be watching the SEC games & the ND game later that night. The B1G hasn't interested me this year (outside of OSU the rest of the B1G is pretty boring), and I'm not really into the Pac12 outside of Oregon/USC. GeneStarwind 7 Nov 2012, 3:26 pm Carrier Classic on Friday then traveling to Sandusky on Saturday to watch my high school playoff game against Ben Gedeon. Then watch DVR Utah Jazz and cancelled Red Wing hockey. TennesseeJohn 7 Nov 2012, 6:19 pm I'll be playing HALO 4 while watching the scores on my laptop to see if any games turn out to be exciting/not boring. osubuckeye4life 7 Nov 2012, 7:47 pm Carrier Classic Friday night and then the Saturday college football: Johnny Touchdown and The Fighting Manziels vs Satan's Disciples Ludicrous Speed Quack Attack vs Da Bears? Nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic Rodentia vs "The Trees" Bill Snyder's (yes, that Bill Snyder) Wildcats vs Toke U The Catholics vs The Ancient Order of the Walrus It should be quite entertaining. Nutbuck1959 7 Nov 2012, 8:06 pm other. Playing golf in Myrtle Beach! LadyBuck 7 Nov 2012, 8:20 pm Well, I'm going to watch OSU Basketball to kick off the weekend. Football wise, I want to see Oregon and 'Bama v. A&M. BuckeyeUro 7 Nov 2012, 8:30 pm Thanks for the reminder guys, will definitely watch the Carrier Classic Friday night.
