  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

I got to meet Herbie Hancock and he signed my napkin for me.  Looked just like when he signed that one important document thingy.

Since its a vague, alcohol hazed memory of Jenna...you could prolly tweak your story to say you're pretty sure you scored with her and just don't remember all the details.

I can sorta get a light blue, but there's no effing way I can get black out of that.  None.  Maybe I am broken :(

Agreed Lucky!  S'ua Cravens from USC was listed high and I don't recall his stats being that different from Vonn Bell's (and Bell's might have been better).  Fine by me!  We'll keep workin', I am confident in that.

Haha I just remembered another one. We snuck beers into a movie at the Lennox theater on campus. At the time, our big man was Kevin Johnson who blocked every shot that came his way. As we were leaving, he was standing like 10 feet from me. I was drunk, so I said "Block THIS KJ!." To this day I don't know why I said that (I mean we're on the same "team," right?). He either didn't hear me or ignored me.

I;m not sold on Watson at Clemson being number 9.  Not yet at least.

Oh I forgot this one!  I worked at Damon's on Olentangy, connected to a hotel.  An important looking guy came in in a suit, with gray hair.  I offered to get him a table, and he politely declined and said, "No, I'm just checking things out."  Looked down at his hand and saw a massive World Series ring.  It was Steinbrenner.  He owned the restaurant and the hotel, and apparently came into C-bus often to check on the Clippers.

He eventually got a table and was talking with some other Yankees people.  I remember him saying about someone (didn't catch the player's name), "Yeh he's got no heart anymore."

Yeh he was very nice.  We even kinda interrupted him - he had just finished on the practice tees and was on his way to his golf cart.

Maybe over the years he did become jerk-y, I dunno.  This was back in his Cavalier slaying days before he had won a championship.

Comment 26 Feb 2015

I missed it.  For that I apologize.  I'm usually more diligent about checking.

Thanks for the kind words.  Why the hell does duping a post mean I think I am so important?  I was wondering why Michigan started spring practice and we haven't.  Hope you feel better calling me real stupid :)

Ran in to Vrabel at Dick's a couple years ago.  He said hello to me and my daughter.  He was pretty cool.

Went to Hilton Head with my cousins in 4th grade and we went to a celebrity golf tourny, and MJ was there.  My cousins made ME go up and ask for an autograph.  He obliged and when we told him we were from Cleveland, he kinda let out a small chuckle and said "Ahh, OK."

Nope!  But someone on Facebook apparently is and did!

I love the ocean and sharks, and that is a beautiful pic is the long and short of it.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Agreed.  Chocolate and beer is like a no-brainer.

And I think Great Lakes is solid enough that they won't overdo the raspberry or do it inappropriately.
