  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have a few, but being one of the small group of Buckeye fans at the CCHA Super 6 in 2004 when the Bucks won 3 games in 3 days to win the championship. The final game against Michigan was the best game ive seen an OSU team play in the many years I've followed the program.

After playing on the OL for my entire football career, which went from pee wee through HS, while at times I miss it, if not on scholarship my personal choice would be to hang it up and save myself the toll that 4 more years of hits would save on my body.  I feel like a broken down wreck as is, with the many years of both football and competitive hockey having added up through the years.

Roosters on Olentangy River Rd if you're in the mood for beer and chicken wings, they've got probably the best ones in Columbus.

Some of the best memories I have are driving up from Dayton to St. John arena with my Dad for the games in the early 90's. After almost every weekend game without fail, my 10 year old self would be on the floor waiting for the team to straggle out so I could get my program signed. To a man, every single member of that team was beyond friendly to a kid who at the time wanted nothing more than to stand close to those guys even for a second.  I still have all of those programs, as well as pictures of those 90-91 and 91-92 teams in my rec room today. Sad day. Godspeed, Steve.

I would give Bills Donut Shop in Centerville a route to my bank account if they would just let me sit there and gorge myself until I passed.

Having interacted with them in those people in the past, including being physically confronted over there in 2005, this surprises me exactly 0%.

They will get a more Ohio State Specific ring (or 2) from the university. In '02 they got the more generic BCS silver and black ring and the one with the scarlet stone with big gold 1.

Comment 22 Jan 2015

I'm pretty tied into the hockey community in Columbus, and I also have a hard time getting worked up over this. At the end of the day, I really don't think that anyone will or wont attend one because of the other. If youre a hockey fan youre going to do all star stuff, and if youre not you will probably not even notice that the event is in town. The skills competition starts 7 hours after the celebration is scheduled to end, so I'm doing the thing at the shoe, fan fest then skills and will .probably still have plenty of time to do nothing in between.

I think its several things. Former coach John Markell could recruit but couldn't develop players. Major Juniors is definitely a draw for kids, but it doesn't seem to hurt a lot of the elite programs in the country. Some of the things the OSU program deals with that the Minnesotas, Wisconsins, North Dakotas and Michigans of the world don't are a building thats 80% empty on a nightly basis, having to get dressed and take a bus to the little rink to practice, and getting kicked out of your home rink for the conference playoffs due to High School Wrestling.

Still the loudest I've heard the stadium.

Comment 19 Feb 2014

I'd be curious to see, but will never happen since black isn't a school color. Thats the reason the hockey team had to go from black alternate jerseys to grey ones in the early 2000's

Comment 14 Feb 2014

With the new facility they built and the money that they are willing to put into the program, there is no reason for Penn St not to develop a strong program quickly, as much as it pains me to say that.

Comment 04 Feb 2014

Has anything been said or even rumored about the Gedig and Dalrymple injuries? Also, when do the jerseys in the MS paints get the update to the current style?

Comment 31 Jan 2014

I won't worry about the Gedig / Dalrymple situation until the lines get released on twitter and I see a 6 in one of the d-pairs.

South stands were taken down after football season to allow use of the track, which was still there up till '99. they weren't so much roll away as they were like a big scaffolding.

Comment 06 Nov 2013

I had started to wonder if the writing was on the wall about Olson leaving when I saw Tomkins in net Friday night. I was coming back from Purdue on Saturday and only made it for the 3rd period but when I saw him in again I remember thinking to myself that he might be gone by next weekend, then low and behold I saw the release Sunday. Makes me harken back to the late 90's - early 00's when it seemed like 1 or 2 midseason defections were the norm. Any word on someone being brought up from the club team to be the 3rd tender?
