I maybe wrong, but I thought the zone read was supposed to be utilized with a qb like JT. But it was used once tonight.

My wife approves this post. After working and living on one of the thoroughbred farms in Kentucky, I really appreciate this post. 

I would actually like to bring Afleet Alex (Troy Smith) out of retirement. Afleet Alex is my wife's favorite horse. She got to work with him and we still have one of his halters.

If he wants to play, then play. If not, then no. We are keeping him out until he is older. He doesn't need to start playing in 3rd grade like I did. I assume he will partake on some flag football at his younger age.

I will be there with a crap load of family, but will be returning home that night (only live 1 hour away).

This is good news for me. For the first time ever, someone maybe afraid of me. I normally have a toothpick in my mouth, it helped me to quit tobacco use.

Childish on my part, but I was annoyed of his continual announcement of his masters that I had to one up him with my wife's PhD. Like I said it was childish but I couldn't take anymore.

I love Ohio. I can't wait to get back, but work is keeping it from happening. 

When I lived in Kentucky, I was more or less just bashing of Ohio State rather than the actual state. But, I would move back to Lexington in a heart beat. Beautiful.

Then my wife and I moved to Colorado. Loved and hated it. We lived in Fort Collins. Great for the few years we were there, but if I ever moved back to Colorado I would have to actually live in the mountains. I was not a fan of the high desert. No rain. Snow melted within the day. I loved the mountains, but always hated dealing with traffic just to get up into them. But, the thing I couldn't stand was people. I know you get that anywhere you move, but most seemed pretentious. People always bashed the midwest and most of them never have been there. I got really upset and defensive when people would make fun of the midwest. It was like they insulted my mom or something. Not to mention we could never afford to live outside city limits. A few acres of land was pricey and water was non-existent. A friend of mine out there actually referred to Ohio as east coast. Huh? I can't really blame him, I assumed Colorado was much closer to California than it really is.

Now, my wife and I are in Illinois. We love it so far. Our fist son arrived this year and we are very excited and blessed to raise him in the midwest. I am happy to be back in the midwest. Land is much more affordable and I miss having property to be able to ride atvs, hunt, pee outside, etc.

At my last job, they hired a ttun grad. He was the prototypical douche. Very smug and arrogant. Always talking and trying to sound smart. He always made sure in almost every conversation to slip in the fact he got his masters at ttun. One day I had enough of it and said I only had my bachelor's from tosu and that is why you report to me. Also mentioned that my wife has a PhD. I normally don't act in that manner, but it seemed justified.
