I am in the ABT crowd, and an early card carrying Tiger hater. When he first showed up with his dad Earle, it was a great story. His dad was a former Army officer, and it was great to see some diversity on the PGA in the form of an African-Asian-American young wunderkind. However it became pretty obvious quickly that the kid was fake, and every action he took was handled by a PR firm. His press conferences say absolutely nothing but cliche's. Fellow golfers who see him when no cameras are around cannt stand him. His behavior on the course is terrible. He treats people unkindly. Great golfer, bad person. I don't care of he banged every waitress in the country, good for him, but he did it the wrong way. Derek Jeter has a list of female partners a mile long, but he's single and doesn't hide the fact he's a player. Tiger, you're single and pert near a billionaire, have fun my friend, just don't try to sell me the gosh gee whiz family guy routine bull shit. When I heard his kids caddied for him at the par 3 contest, I didn't think what a nice story, I thought he must have hired a new pr firm and this is the latest attempt to rehab his image.

I am not up here on the Northern border protecting ohio from a barbarian invasion to let the 513 talk uk smack, eat that dog crap they think is chili and brew Heudepohl (spelling)! That crap beer nearly killed met freshman year until I upgraded to better bears like natural lite, PBR, Strohs and keystone!

From 1983 to 1991 (dead ball era) there was no better player at any position, than Alan Trammel. Gearge Bell being awarded the 87 MVP was criminal. I like Larkin, he deserved the HOF but tram was the man.

Stick a fork in him, he done. His "injuries" are mostly between the ears. He's lost his edge, the PGA tests for ped's, and nobody is afraid of Tiger anymore. I'm tired of the golf channel talking about this hack.

Pepper Johnson, Keith Byers, Chris Carter and Chris Speilman were my favorite football players.  Dennis Hopson and Kelvin Ransey were my favorite hoops players.

Pro football, I was a huge fan of Billy Sims and Al "bubba" Baker.

Baseball, Alan Trammel was THE man. The fact he's not in the hall of fame is a joke and a travesty. Better all around player than either  Ozzie Smith or Barry Larkin.

It is amazing how many Buckeye fans there are in southeastern michigan. Last time I was at the Henry Ford, I was representing and heard an O H  from  across the museum. The number of OSU and MSU fans have tripled in the D over the last decade.

Did the search: cougar drill head assembly from Chicago vibrator products may be the dirtiest sounding perfectly clean product I've ever heard!

Frankie's! You could get an STD just looking at that place. Gotta love the east side!

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Pine knob is a GREAT venue and have seen dozens of shows there. Being so close to the border you usually wind up tailgating with wild, drunk Canadians. Saw Rush there during Roll The Bones tour, and the crowd looked like they were there for a Maple Leaf game.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

First concert was Peter Frampton opening for Stevie Nicks at Pine Knob.

Best Concert musically was Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jeff Beck on Halloween in 1989. A true musical god taken from us too young.

 Best "show" was Pink Floyd in the Shoe. Lived in Haverfield at the time, and there was a fog around campus that weekend.

Best song I ever saw live was Live and Let Die, by Paul McCartney and Wings at the Pontiac Silverdome.

I was 16 in 1986, and my father was a huge Jack Nicklaus  fan (as was I).  Nearly 30 years later I can still remember watching that final round of the Masters with my father, and the tears in his eyes when it was over. I still get goose bumps thinking about it.  It was a magical moment shared with a man I loved.  As great as the 2002 and 2014 national championships were, I don't think the 1986 Masters will ever be topped as my favorite sports moment. 

Comment 23 Mar 2015

He was a great coach! One of the all time greats. But, he's kind of like that crazy old uncle that scares the entire family, because you never know what he's going to say. Some of his comments about women and minorities would have gotten him fired in today's world. His kids graduated, there weren't discipline problems on his teams, but he's kinda crazy.

Apollo's was the greatest gyro ever! Close up Papa Joe's (home of the $4 bucket) and then stumble to Apollo's for 2 $1 gyros. Walk back to north campus, with a stop to leak on  the law building!  Would wake up the next morning still drunk and the gyro taste still lingering. Good times for under $10.

I feel your pain. Not only was mine a vibe kill, it burned to the ground along 23 while driving to C-Bus for fall classes. Was able to get out my stereo, but lost half my clothes. I hated that piece o' crap.

1980 Chevy Citation.  Chicks dig the hatchback! This car set back American automakers 20 years.

Comment 09 Mar 2015

The Merriam- Webster Dictionary defines lifetime as follows:  the duration of the existence of a living being (as a person or an animal).  Accordingly,  since Pete Rose is currently in the duration of his existence, he needs to stay out of the hall.  Met the man once, while he was managing the Reds, and he was the biggest ass I've ever had the displeasure of meeting.  I don't think that being a jerk should keep someone out of the hall, it just brings me pleasure that he's out.  Karma's a you know what Pete.

I am ashamed to admit this, but I am a die hard Lion's fan, and I am thrilled to death that the Leo's did not sign him to this deal.  Suh is a great player, but he is not an impact player.  Suh is great at occupying double teams, and is above average at getting qb pressure up the middle.  He is also great at promoting the Suh image, and doing whatever is best for the Suh brand, regardless of what is good for the team.

In his 5 seasons with the Lions, they have only made the playoffs twice, and have failed to win single playoff game.  His career average is 44 tackles per season, 7 sacks per season and has only forced 2 fumbles in his entire career.  If given the choice between keeping Suh or defensive coordinator Taryl Austin, I would definitely choose Austin.  I think the Lions finally became a real team by not signing a bad deal which would have crippled the team for years to come. Way to go Lions, keep moving "forward down the field".

As an OSU alum, the Buckeyes are my team, but I also love Rocket Football. The 2001 MAC championship game is the greatest football game I have ever in person. Chester Taylor brought the Rockets back from 23 down in an ice storm to beat Marshall!

There is a difference between justice and public opinion. You are entitled to your opinion, but just because a newspaper prints the truth about a horrible investigation and it paints Winston unfavorably does NOT mean he is not getting justice.  Getting justice would have been the investigating officer doing a complete and unbiased investigation.  As it is now this is starting to look like a cover up, and why have a cover up if he is innocent. I am not a member of Winston's jury so I am entitled to that opinion. he doesn't need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt for me to think he's guilty!

Comment 29 Mar 2014

There is no way a person thought of by most as being from Michigan should even be in this tournament!  Thomas Edison was a thief, a rotten human being and worst of all a Michigander! I am ashamed that this fine Buckeye board eliminated Armstrong. Also, Paul Newman deserves to take out BobHope. Bob Hope was a great humanitarian, but as an entertainer he couldn't touch Paul Newman. Butch, Luke, Eddie, and Regie Dunlap are some of the greatest characters in movie history.
