You mean me?

If so, then trust me, my wife and I look forward to our anniversary. All day of college football and turning off our phones. Ours fell on game day last year and we completely shut ourselves in and did not talk to a single person, just watched football. It was glorious.

My wife loves the fall and Buckeye football. So, needless to say we married on a Friday night and had a big tailgate party on Saturday and watched the game.

I am a lucky man.

Oh and sadly I have weddings on back to back Saturdays this year.....VT and Kent State....Darn IT!

Agree. When my wife got free student tickets, it felt weird.

Great article!

I have lived in Kentucky and Colorado the past 7 years. I never realized how much I missed Ohio (Kentucky also) until we moved to Colorado. Colorado is fine but it is not home. The biggest issue I have is when I tell people here that I miss Ohio and can't wait to get back, they give me this weird look like I am crazy or something. They try and tell me Ohio is miserable (even though they have never been there). I argue about green grass, fall colors, having actual 4 seasons, and a culture of college football that Colorado is lacking.

Hopefully my wife and I will get to move back home, but we have to see where jobs will take us.

I had to take the obvious approach with that one.

I completely agree with your take on Troy, the oline, watching Wimbledon than world cup, and cheering for USA regardless of sport.

Does this mean any new songs by KISS will incorporate some smooth jazz?
Comment 28 Jun 2014
Haha. Sorry I was on my phone and didn't proofread. Fixed it.
Comment 28 Jun 2014
I watched the last quarter of the game. Troy is my favorite, but he was a bit off today. The receivers didn't help either. He avoided plenty of sacks. Looked very mobile. His throws were lacking some touch. Arm strength was still plenty. I did see about 4 dropped balls. I still hold hope he will improve to the glory days.

I am lucky. My wife gets it. She is a rabid fan too. We married on Friday night, Oct. 2, 2009, on account of the Bucks playing on Saturday.

It is irritating when people do not get it. I am in a wedding on Sept. 6th and have another the following week. This year is going to be rough.

Actually, you are correct. I really am not a fan of hockey or NBA (but hockey is fun to watch at playoffs, even though I have no clue what is happening). I do however like baseball. As you can tell I am a midwest country boy, only exposed to football, basketball, and baseball. I actually play in rec league volleyball now and wow that is fun. Wish I would have had a chance to play that growing up.

I was waiting on someone to bring up how those playoffs are set up. Thank for the clarification on the round robin thing. As you can tell I am oblivious to soccer, but I am going to watch the Crew play here in Denver. I do not have to know a sport to root for a team, that is for sure.

I still like 1 and done. You have 1 shot (like American football playoffs and March Madness) to prove you are a better team. I would like to see baseball try it (think wild card play in), but then you miss out on pitching match ups and what not. So, maybe not. I can see both sides.

I understand everyone's stance.

I for 1 do not know a darn about soccer. But, after watching The US play the other day, darn that was fun! I do not really like soccer, but that was a blast cheering for those guys.

I hate the arbitrary adding time thing and that you can lose and still go through. I do not like any sport where you can tie, get rid of that rule.
