  • SPORTS MOMENT: Probably would have to be the 1990 Reds winning the world series. I was 9 years old,and it was easily the best day of my young life. I've had some incredible life moments, but the joy I felt that day has rarely been matched.

I think he's a solid player but I also think he is overrated.  People fell in love with his speed and all the hype coming in so everyone expected him to be something I don't think he'll be able to be.  It's not to say I don't think he can be an important part of the team, I just don't think he'll be better than guys on the team like Marshall.  Anyway, I don't know, that's my 2 cents worth.

Next year the Buckeyes really could have an amazing amount of people drafted in the first round, and multiple in the top 10.  Bosa and Cardale could be in the top 3.  Lee could go high.  EZE is definitely going to go high.  Michael Thomas has a shot.  I'm sure the O-Line is going to have at least one guy go high.  It's going to be a Scarlet and Gray draft.

I'm not paying any attention to Georgia radio stations saying he's been spotted in Alabama.  Remember how he was spotted in Tallahassee and it was a done deal too?  He's not going anywhere.

Do people really get upset that they get fake internet points or lose fake internet points from people they don't know or will never meet in real life on a blog about football?  There are times where I see a DV on something that I said and I'm not sure why it offended someone, but at the end of the day who really gives a shit?  Down vote me, upvote me my life doesn't really change any.  

What's crazy to me is we have 3 active threads going in the forum talking about votes.

It's Ohio State, Tatoos are free.  Plus, wasn't this picture from when he was a Jr in high school or something?

Why should he acknowledge anything?  I can make a rumor that any player is going anywhere and it'll pick up steam online in blogs.  That doesn't mean that said player has to give the rumor the time of day.  He's already been a done deal to Oregon, Duke, and FSU.  Now it's Bama.  He's not going anywhere and he doesn't need to say a word. The only people who are demanding answers are people on blogs and talk radio shows.  Braxton has no reason acknowledge these rumors.

I'd even take backfilling with 3 stars over signing a short class, then backfilling with schollies for walk-ons. 

Comment 19 Apr 2015

You know what?  I'm cool with that.  I'll take the majority of the best talent from Ohio, then a mix of the best from Florida, Georgia, Texas, New Jersey, Virginia, and Michigan over all Ohio kids with a couple from other states mixed in.

Texas cranks out great QB's.  It used to be Cali was where the great ones came from, but Texas cranks them out.

My door is always open!  We always welcome guests.  Especially if they are friends of Buckeyes and Bourbon!

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it!  I'm not proud of what I'm about to say, but I will be attending The Lion King on Saturday instead of the spring game.  I'm not ashamed of going to see Lion King as it was pretty cool, I'm just ashamed that it's taking priority this weekend.  You know what they say about happy wife and so forth.

I agree with what you are saying and in general I think you are correct.  The Oprhan Barrel stuff that is all over 100 bucks a bottle or damn near it, in my humble opionion aren't as good as Elmer T Lee, Blantons,  Anything Woodford does, Four Roses etc.  I will also say, that Pappy 20 used to be an 80-100 dollar bottle of bourbon and back when I could actually get it at those prices it wasn't impossible to find, but I didn't drink bourbon or know what was what. I will say, that no doubt in my mind, Pappy 20 is worth it.  I obviously didn't have trouble buying this bottle at that price point.  I wouldn't have a problem laying down that kind of cash for George T Stagg too. 

To each their own though.  Some like to spend a few hundred on pot.  Others gaming systems and video games.  Some gambling and strippers etc.  Bottom line, This could be the only time I could actually acquire this bottle.  I have quite a collection ranging from 9 dollar bottles, to this one which is by far the most I've spent on a bottle before.  I've been after this sucker for a long long time. 

Also, it's not a horrible investment.  I could flip this bottle for 800 to 1000 now.  Although, I really don't think I would do it.

I've always said one of these days on TV one of these signs in a hurricane will split someones head in half or decapitate someone.  Still amazes me those idiots go outside to report.

Four Roses just does it right.  Same with Woodford.  My favorite distillery is Buffalo Trace, but can't go wrong with anything Four Roses or Woodford do in my opinion.

Ha ha!  I was quite shocked to see that Red Velvet when he said he had a bottle for me!  I do go there for everything now though beer, cigarrettes and wine coolers for the wife.  It all started with me stopping in one night and looking around and the guy telling me he had "special bourbon" behind the counter.  He pulled out a bottle of Elmer T Lee.  I pretty much stop in every Thursday since September to see what "special bourbon" they have!
