The zoo is a favorite. PB is nice. Recommend renting a kayak and enjoying some time on the water. The Fishery is a great restaurant in PB as well. Great place and excellent food. Local place, not touristy. Message me if you want to grab coffee and talk buckeyes when your are here.

If I could get BTN in high def in a cable alternative I would jump at it and likely cut the cord now. I hope Jim Delaney gets this message!

I agree. I like the old school unis because they have a little flair with the stripes making a turn near the shoulders. I don't like the numbers over the stripes. 

I think they should have cut the stripes off below the numbers (which could be smaller) and add stripes up the side that match the 1916 unis with the curve hear the shoulder. This would make them seem less like a barcode.

This could descend into politics, which is forbidden on this site of course. Let's agree to disagree this is douchey. Bottom line, I would prefer to choose where to donate my dollars than allow any government, especially one proven to be inept at managing money and financial matters, to do something with those dollars. I believe Bono donates a large sum of money where he chooses. I have no problem with this.

One of my favorite bands and a great person. Total respect for Bono. If using your fame and fortune to help others is douchey, then I guess I like douchey people. I really don't get the dislike. He seems so genuine and authentic in every interview I've seen. Happy Birthday Paul!

That is fascinating short-sightedness. Starting a network and extorting the cable companies to carry it in large markets has worked well for Delaney and the B1G. Many of the schools have upgraded facilities greatly due to the millions pouring in from TV money. Even if you are sharing that pie, it will still taste good to these schools who need the facilities upgrades to get even or pull ahead in recruiting. 

I hear that argument about Houston, as many in Houston are already watching the Longhorns, TCU, and Texas based teams. Still if you put a certain number of games a year on your network, who cares at that point. Also many people watch Boise because they are on ESPN like every Thursday night during the season. If they put more Boise material on a network and it had national relevance, it would gain popularity I'm sure

Saw it in IMAX 3D. I don't usually like 3D, but I don't usually. Most movies (except Avatar) aren't shot thinking about 3D. This seemed to be a cut above. I did feel more like I was in the movie. There were a few shots that were just epic in 3D. I wouldn't spend the money again, but it was not as bad a others I've seen in 3D

I didn't think it was all about Bucky for CA. It was as much about Freedom and The Avengers being the right people to choose where and when to deploy themselves. I agree this seems weird as CA was all about following orders - he's a soldier. Also Stark siding with the government was a twist given IM2 and his overall thumb in the eye to the government (except to exploit for money earlier in his life).

Honestly, I liked the twist and I thought it showed character development in each of them. They were impacted by their experiences and thus have had a change in their points of view. I found it believable and interesting
