And Eclipse and Agricola and Caverna and Through the Ages and...I have been playing games like this for years. People will ask me, "Oh, you play boardgames? Like Monopoly? Like Risk?" No, nothing like that.

I feel the same way, but it's funny how different each of them getting drafted was for me. The year Holmes was drafted, going in I had been thinking what a good fit he would be for the Steelers. When they announced that they had traded up I just knew they were going to take him and was standing in front of my tv chanting " Take him, take him, take him". When they did I ran around my apartment yelling like an idiot.

With Shazier, I was not sure even what position they were going to take. Various needs, some decent players on the board, you can't always tell what direction a team is going to go. So I was just sitting back when it came to their pick. When they announced the name, I jumped up and started running around my apartment like an idiot....so I guess really not that much different in the end.

While I will agree with you that the vast majority of posters were calling for him to be kicked off the team immediately, I counted no fewer than four posters in the first two pages that were either saying "should wait until the courts decide" or "no need to ruin the kids life by kicking him off the team" What? Ruin his life? Like hitting him as hard as possible in the side of the face?

And the funny part of that thread is the people saying "Well, we aren't as bad as Sparty or Ohio, hurk a hurk" Nope, you're worse. Does anyone seriously think that if this was at OSU he wouldn't already be gone? Hell Hyde got suspended 3 games last year for making a few bad decisions, mainly where he was at 2 am. This is essentially the same as if Carlos had waited for that girl to walk by him and cold cocked her. While we have great affection for him around here, I don't think you would have found anyone standing up for him.

Marion Local is a public school. I am betting he is talking about Delphos St Johns, in the same league as Marion, the MAC. Or perhaps Newark Catholic, which has also been a small school power. Delphos will probably not be affected by this much. They very rarely have players from outside their town. Hell, they don't even get all the good players in Delphos.The public school in town, Jefferson, has had a decent team the last few years. DSJ just has an enormous percentage turnout for football, mainly because of the tradition around the football team.

At least they didn't pass that horrible version of this that was proposed a few years ago, where schools would be penalized in a similar way for just being successful. In that version, advancing so far in the playoffs gave you points. If you acquired a certain amount of points over a few years you would get moved up in division.

This times one bazillion. A kick return for a TD and about 200 all purpose yards from scrimmage would be an awesome capper to the 2014 regular season. And I know we won't do it but the whole Buckeye kick return team surrounding the TSUN returner on one of their 8 kickoff returns after a OSU touchdown would be cool too.

Good call on Sheehan, been a fan of his for years, had a friend that was from Upstate New York that turned me on to his original band, Talus. Got to see him play with Steve Vai when they were both in David Lee Roth's band.

As a Steelers fan I can tell you he smiles on the sideline all the time.....but it's one of those snarky "wait till they get a load of this shit" smiles.

It's crazy but that was the first thing I thought too.

Were you actually not able to form sentences that day or did it just look like it? =;)

I always think the best part of this highlight is Shazier gets up and walks away, like "It ain't no thing", then the quarterback tries to do the same and falls on his ass. Haha
