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.

That was a good Ice Bucket challenge.  I would also have to note the. Flash dance one on Facebook (William Palumbo).

Comment 23 Aug 2014

It's weird, but I am actually excited to see the defense on the field this year.  Sure the D-Line is a big reason, but it will be interesting to watch the LB situation unfold and the Defensive Backfield surprise people.  Barrett IV is just another piece of the pie.... I like pie.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Wait.... with Pa, Little Joe and Hoss?  Oh yeah I think that came in on one of our two channels.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

I am telling you, the injury to a Miller does two things to me: 1) it makes the first 4 or 5 games much more interesting and 2) it probably saves my liver a little damage due to the scheduling impact of a lesser bowl.  If we do make it to the Playoffs, then well, I guess it is a wash.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

I think there is supposed to be drones in downtown Columbus either today or tomorrow..... Nice timing.  I wish BM The best recovery and a triumphant return, but by the end of the week, we need to move on and focus on Quatro and this exciting team.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

Just noting what I expected to see on the site.  Today, many people seem to be unable to communicate their thoughts so they post a Dumb and Dumber GIF or Anchorman one to emulate their emotions.  I am not wrong. Don't shoot the messenger!

The ALS walk is coming up in September at the Columbus Commons.  Come and support someone.  I will walk for a friend, Gary Ellis that was diagnosed in January of 2013.  I also walk for Karl Majoy, diagnosed about the same time.  Both friends are frozen in a Capt. Pike like state (think old Start Trek). Prior writers can't describe how fast this disease moves nor how debilitating it becomes.

Oh yeah, like City BBQ.....  The key to my bacon is purely in the preparation.  This year we are thinking Millionaire's Bacon, a Bacon Explosion and (that's right) some flour drenched bacon.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

It will be bonkers.  I will get there early and try to skip out as soon as my bacon is gone.  Of course I am just kidding, but our group will definitely be there by 2 PM.  The bacon will be gone by 2:30 PM if last year is indicative of the fury of pork eaters.  Birm will probably be first in line.

Actually I did not intend to even refer to Michigan, instead it was simply a reference to the growing up this kid needs to do.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

"I didn't make this kid pass out on my floor." 

Michigan 'Man' has to be one of the greatest lines ever.  Whomever told him that the beard he was rocking will get you chicks, well I hope they are wrong or this is surely the beginning of the fall of our society.  

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I wonder what type of coaching is going to the defensive line with the Navy game upcoming.  I would hate for the result of the chop blocks to be 2 of our d-linemen to be out for several games.  

Comment 03 Aug 2014

Great point.  I believe that D-line from '02-'03 had a few pro starts under their collective belts also.  Another thing the D-line will do is create necessary double teams which will free up linebackers to make the stops.  Can't let a tight end go out for a pass?  I guess the field gets smaller.... Those things are all good.

Comment 01 Aug 2014

I was thinking the same thing.  Pelini always has the oddest looks on his face.  Ones like:  "Where is my cat?"  "Did my cat do that?" "You did what with my cat?" 

Te first link is a sad one, but any father would do the same thing.  I feel that I should have the right to own a Sherman tank and park it in my front room in case of intruders.  I would glad vaporize the front section of my house to keep my wife and child safe.  It's not that I need to, but that I have the Right.

Comment 26 Jul 2014

Obviously Petroleum Engineering plays a part in the decision right now.  How strong is Petroleum at OSU compared to PSU, Va Tech and even WVU?  If he is smart enough to think of the long term, it will weigh in his decision, as it should.  

Comment 24 Jul 2014

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.  : )

Comment 24 Jul 2014

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.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

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).
