First Gee has his Little Sisters of the Poor comment, and now Drake gets a Cease and Desist letter. What is it with tOSU presidents these days?  What can I say? I'm old. It took me a while to figure out who Drake is. I apologise for my confusion. Carry on.

My flabdominal muscles deposits could possibly be Marotti's Waterloo. Good thing for him I'm sequestered firmly in my chair, protected by my TV on one side, and my fridge on the other. Today's grind for me started with Folger's, followed by fresh beef 2 a days. Marotti may be the one who knocks. I'm the who shouts, "Nobody home."

Gary Andersen is his friend, and Urban held it to 59. Does anyone really think Urban wouldn't steamroll Harbaugh by 100 if given the opportunity? If Meyer ever has a '14 B1G Championship style game going against ttun, the only thing that will spare Harbaugh is the clock.  No. Mercy.

I just hope Herman did not disclose the science behind Braxton's wardrobe tendencies.

Ever seen a flatline on an EKG? That's what my 10K finish line would look like today.

The keyword is around 200.

Agreed. The keywords " a round 200" however are more dependent on a sub 6' height.

Motivation can be such a tiring thing in and of itself when it comes to physical exercise. Sometimes the thought of exercise in this experienced, over 50-something Temple of Torment is enough to make me move straight to that, "Take 1-2 days off at least..." portion of your #3 bullet point. But damn it, gravity is not going to beat me until and unless I decide to get up and move again! Sure, it would be good for me, but then so is a nap. I was taught that from my very own rug in kindergarten.

You inspire me, Helga, nonetheless. I'm going to start small, say move the refrigerator six inches farther away from the couch. I'm going to stop using the remote control for the TV also, and refuse to pick it up again until I live alone. These may not seem like big life changes to some, but by the time my son comes over and moves the fridge and changes channels for me, I have no doubt he'll be red-faced and panting expletives under his breath. The key is setting realistic goals. Be honest with yourself about where you are physically, and where you want go. I'm not the kind of guy who's going to lie and say that I can have a better 40 time than Stephen Hawking by this time next June, but if I keep after it, who knows?  One thing is certain. The older I get, the more realistic I am with my physical expectations. I've gone from running 10K's in my 20's to feeling like I'm really taking care of myself by eating Special K in my 50's. Perspective is a powerful rationalizing tool, and it's a tool I aim to keep in my arsenal.

Joey Bosa is a bad man, but his music is... worse. 

Comment 14 Jun 2015

Realignment and conference play will be rendered moot as soon as we have the first Transwinning Athlete, a naturally born National Champion trapped in a Boilermaker or Scarlet Knight body.  This may also be the easiest path for ttun to try for a return to relevancy.

Glad to see Tress entering the HOF. Only good to come of losing him was UFM.

Color me pissed if I committed to the team and school, transferred after being shat upon by the University and its athletic department, then hear them say, "...Uhhhhh... Never mind."
