Buckeye BadDog

Naples, Florida (via Columbus, Ohio)

I was born on campus - at the Ohio State Hospital - and grew up just outside of Columbus near New Rome (Lincoln Village). I graduated from Westland HS in 1979, lived in a house at Norwich & Fourth for a while (Just a short walk down Iuka Ave to the Oval and the center of the Universe), and then moved to Naples, Florida in 1983. I have been down here ever since, but while I am out of Ohio, Ohio has NEVER been out of me. I have a "Buckeye" room in my house where my Godson slept whenever he came to stay with us - which worked because he is almost as big a Buckeye fan as I am. As a matter of fact, as Carlo Hyde came off the field in his last game at Naples HS, my Godson gave him his prized Buckeye nut and told him that it was great that he was going to be a Buckeye soon.

Oh no, my wife is beautiful... which means she could have never even been admitted to *ichigan. Her cousins who went there are nice looking, but they only went there for Graduate school. Undergrads have a prerequisite that they either never shower or look like an in-breeding experiment gone horribly wrong.

I am related - by marriage - to Tony Boles, who did a lot (108 yds rushing) one year to help *ichigan beat my beloved Buckeyes (along with Kolesar and Hoard). I found this out before we were married... and I married her anyway. And most of her family are *ichigan  fans. Not Sparty, which I could  - grudgingly - live with. No. It had to be the Corn and Blow. Oh well. Its been a lot of fun hearing the silence from that camp the past 10 years.
