Aside from college football bowl games (the big ones), nothing beats playoff hockey. These guys give more than any other sport out there. Very few divas here. Ask Ryan Getzlaf.
Those were some bad bathrooms and kitchens. But, living in a house with 5 other guys in college, I can't say ours weren't nasty at times either. 6 guys in a house... if one person didn't do the dishes right away, NO ONE did them. It was maddening.
Ohio State co-defensive coordinator Chris Ash says "We are going to blitz. And we are going to blitz a lot."
I cannot wait to see this. I'm not sure we blitzed once last year (exaggeration).
My senior year in high school -- swimming. My most memorable race is one that I (we) lost, but not really.
We were not a strong team, and generally overmatched in most dual meets, although I held my own personally. We were getting killed in this one meet, and the last event was the 4X100 freestyle relay which I anchored. The guy I was going against on the anchor leg was a state-meet-bound sprinter.
As the third swimmers were coming to the wall, we were down by about 3/4 of a body length. I knew if I was going to have any chance, I'd have to get a great start, to the point where the ref would come just shy of DQ-ing me for leaving early. I got a perfect relay start, and his was a little slow, so by the time we hit the water, I made up 1/2 a body length just on the start and was down by just a little bit.
I held with him the entire 4 laps, but couldn't quite catch him and was out-touched by him at the wall. I dropped 3 seconds off my personal best time in a 50+ second race for me, and more importantly, I made the other guy shit his pants (not literally).
We became instant friends after that.
Looking forward to it! I see good reviews so far, not that they are official or anything.
I saw it. It WAS epic.
But having to deal with people heckling me with my OHIO STATE shirt in fucking OHIO is just... well, it's too much. That actually did happen. True story.
I'm sure it's the same way in Athens.
I'm also rooting for Dayton. I didn't want to lose, but we had a flawed team that I think most of us new we had a strong shot at losing no matter who we drew in the first round.
Football is a different story. The weight football carries is greater than all the other sports combined when it comes to the collegiate sports throne in Ohio.
And we generally hate Wisconsin a little less in football not that Bert is gone, too...
Nice screen shot. Someone needs to add the hair via photoshop.
Most of these will end up being the same or very similar since most of us are Archie years or younger.
Sounds to me like a couple of down years await on the road ahead...
I've always thought this way as well. And don't start the season with the toughy.
If I happen to be in town and someone throws tickets at me, I'll go. Otherwise, ho hum for me.
Isn't Polio making a small comeback out in California and Colorado?
Apparently they 'roid...
What can you do? Not surprised by the result... it had that feeling all season long.
Come on Bucks... hang on!!
I'm not a politics guy, but the Politico Commentator Regional makes me laugh the most. I've got my eye on that breastfeeding advocates vs. Snowden fans.
Aubrey, you've killed it this year with the hockey coverage. It's driven me to watch some games on TV and follow it more-- I'm a more informed fan thanks to you. Thanks for all the hard work!
I'd love to see LSJ tear it up in the tournament...one last hurrah for his college career.
Basically being a d*ck. Most often it's used to describe an a jerk in forums online.
What is it with the college hoops fans attending games these days?
Thanks for the update. As I stated in Aubrey's article I had to come into work just before the shootout. I was listening on the radio and heard we were very close to winning it in the OT frame.
