Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now buy coal for a large utility. I used to work at a power plant, now I buy 12 M tons per year for them. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W.

Absolutely I am.  How many Asians do you know that have mathematics degrees but have no other skills?  I know two.  Not saying it's just the Asians.  In fact they were probably ahead of the curve on specializing.  In college, most foreigners specialized in math at a very early age whereas 'Muricans didn't specialize until after high school.  If you are in an engineering or math field, please opine.  Otherwise, you may be ignorant of what is taking place.  No offense.  : )

Oden dominated both of their big men, not just Noah.  Horford was far from a slouch.  

Americans suck at math?  Two things, 1) we don't do only math for years and years and 2) tell me China is good at world history or literature? That one is for you Ginter.

I like Bacon and I prepare it well.  Come to Eat Too Brutus this year and see what I mean!  

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Glad you ended with the Spurrier sentence, otherwise I was going to check to see if I had a stroke or something.  The first paragraph makes nonsense to me.  No offense.  I hope it's not me, a bum foot and back is bad enough.  Losing the mental edge I have would totally suck.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

Not quite there age wise, but after growing up playing football and wrestling, I think my body is 5 years ahead of my actual age.  I woke up last Friday to a toe/foot issue that is worse than I remember a broken toe.  What did I do to earn it?  I got one day older (46).  

Comment 14 Jul 2014

The best I've had, meaning there may be a better one, is Lucky's in Hilliard.  I am also partial to it because I can walk home after "eating too many wings."

Comment 09 Jul 2014

So by the number of down votes I have been given, I can only conclude that many of you DO want to see random 15 year olds and a 45 (guessing at age of course) year old mom shaking their money-maker?  Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Comment 09 Jul 2014

Yeah that was not what I expected.  Random 15 year olds with their 45 year old moms rarely have a place in this section.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

This is one reason we switched to AT&T.  I have had one issue on one box in 4 years.  It is pricey, but the equipment doesn't have issues.

Comment 06 Jul 2014

Taking Gamble for his two-way ability is brilliant.  Teddy Ginn should also be under consideration due to his ability to stretch the field and absolutely destroy special teams.

Comment 05 Jul 2014

Not bad Johnny!  By the way, these are not the Bill of Suggestions, they are Buckeye Rights!

Comment 05 Jul 2014

I would like to have seen a short list of who made the next 5.  Brewster had a solid career starting early in a tough position.  He seemed to have a tough senior year with some bad snaps, but outside of that I would think he graded out well.

Comment 03 Jul 2014

Yesterday, as I walked the sandy shores of the Redneck Riviera (Myrtle Beach) I wondered of the outcome of The announcements.  Luckily, I was able to take a break around 3 PM and found the 11W site crashed.  Without reading more, I understood what the outcome was like reading a blurred screen in the Matrix.  I snatched up my Buckeye gear and returned to the beach in full regale (OSU hat and shirt).

Comment 25 Jun 2014

I can see OSU going undefeated in the regular season AGAIN and James Franklin winning the Big Ten COY with a .500 record.  Someone has to find the witch and burn her.

Comment 07 Jun 2014

Probably Dantonio's squad over others.  Except Indiana.   That probability of Indiana going that far would drive me to root for them.  Their color scheme is close enough too.  Plus, it would be interesting seeing the bifurcation of the entire state with half clinging to basketball whilst the other half turns to the pigskin.

[Ed: What part of the no politics rule are you not understanding?]

Comment 28 May 2014

I forgot that all of the NFL games are played in sunny California or Florida.  This should be a recruiting gem, telling recruits that 'it will help you prepare for the next level.'

Comment 29 Apr 2014

The ten minutes following the CBJ loss last night was pretty cool.  For those not there, it was basically a standing ovation with the C-B-J chant resonating like we had just won the Cup.  I even managed to squeeze into a "5th Line" T-shirt and rock the suite next to the Pens Healthy Scratches.  Yep, they get themselves a whole suite for 6 guys.  Orpic was not pleased.  Regardless of the slow start, I don't think I heard one boo last night, except for the occasional jab at the Refs.

When considering talent of a player, I always look to recent and historical players.  AJ Hawk was a 3-star which means he as a good high school player.  Sanzenbacher is another one under the radar as well as Jenkins.  I'll take guys that can play the game anytime.

I prefer the term "Ass-Clown" but the hat still fits.

Comment 18 Apr 2014

I thought the same thing.  Right idea, wrong execution.  Buy her a nice Kia or Hyundai and she won't be strapped to gas money.  Take more of the money and fix up her house or pay bills.  You don't want her living in her car.
