Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now I am a Regulatory Consultant for a large utility. We vacation in Mexico. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W and I probably like Bacon more than you. Married with a daughter and we have one pug (Beanz) who get gassy.

Not surprising.  Either you weren't around for the 90's or it wasn't that big of a deal to you.  Think about all of the teens and twenty year old kids who say that they hate Xichigan.  They don't really hate them, they just really dislike them.  You don't get that hate from beating a team all but twice in the last 15 years.  You get that hate regenerated and fueled by having your dreams smoked by the bad guy.  Until that happens (and 2011 was not that year) the hatred isn't real.  When it does happen, we will welcome the new fold of OSU fans into the cage match.

DJ, There would be one bright spot is Xichigan wins: the souls of thousands of kids would burn hot to see the tears of the Wolverines. Just as you have noted that Wolverine fans don't know what it is like to beat OSU, the opposite is true, there are scores of OSU fans (a generation) that doesn't know the pain of that 'dream snatching smelly rodent from up north' stealing a win and halting the train of destiny. Try living through the 90's when OSU had better teams but managed to lose 3 games theyou should have won. Feed off of the new generation.....

Abe is good. Bacon wrapped spicy sausage was even better! But of course it is when you cover it in brown sugar and BBQ sauce. Next year's concoction was devised as we sampled the morsels. Think Bacon Explosion on a toothpick.

Yeah, I went to that game.  If I remember correctly, it was a nice day with a slight breeze.  Maybe 70F-75F in the 'Shoe.  It was a total beat down.  I went to the game expecting a decent test, but it became a laugher real quick.  I immortalized the game day ticket (with the score on it) by placing it on my bar and covering it with resin.  Maybe a million years from now, someone will find it and say, "Yeah, Mark May is a ass-hat."

I agree. He made things right by apologizing and signing some balls for him.  Sometimes, the reaction and subsequent action(s) tells us more about ones character than we would expect. In this case, he didn't have to apologize, but it was the right thing to do.

It seems like they care less about making the right call and more about not making the field referees look bad.  By restricting the flexibility of what can or cannot be reviewed, they pigeon-hole themselves into bad calls.  Apparently, on this one they could only review whether or not there was contact, not "who" inititated the contact or if the receiver came back in bounds as soon as possible (hate to give Mark May credit on this one).

That is tough.  I feel for you, I really do.  I've been to 4 birthday parties at the Mouses House and each and every time I walk out of it with the one thing you forgot to mention: some virus that can't be cured by modern medicine. Usually the stomach kind that hits you at 3 AM and hangs on to destroy what is left of your r weekend.  

Wear gloves and a mask.

Blue or Red in the White House, there is no other country in which I would want to live. That's why the flag has those colors.

Did you just wake up?  Yes, the Sausage King.  I see you are new here.  Welcome to the site.  All reverence to BACON. If you don't like bacon, you are wrong.

Comment 28 Oct 2015

Birthdays suck after about the age of 25.  it is then that you realize there is nothing good about them.  in your twenties it takes a few hours to recover from physical activity. In your thirties, it takes a couple of days.  When you hit forty, you don't even think about doing it.  As I approach fifty, I wake up and hurt and don't even know why.  Birthdays generally suck, but..... they are better than the alternative!

I disagree.  If our Buckeyes win out, we are in.  That's all we need is a chance again.

Comment 27 Oct 2015

This house is with you on Fargo.  Don't blame me if I don't eat hamburger for a couple of weeks.

Comment 24 Oct 2015

Nice Monty Python before 6 AM!  C'Mon, we don't really think Rutgers throws up 27 points on us do we?  I'm thinking something more like 35-13.  A nice efficient game. At least that is what I want to see.

..... and his son.  Although not the stellar linebacker, I believe he did start one year. I will always remember Pagac with his lower lip extended due to a tobacco product residing there.
