  • SPORTS MOMENT: I used to live in NYC and would watch games at the alumni gathering. After a lack luster win over YSU the bar flipped the TV's over to what would become Michigan's infamy, the App State game. After watching Michigan fail and wrapped in the ensuing warm glow I then made my way back to Grand Central, dressed in full regalia as always for the games. As I crossed 6th I saw, headed my direction, a utterly dejected Michigan fan, also in full tailgate dress, head down, oblivious to me as he trudged west on 46th. I stopped to watch his slow shuffle, a wide grin growing on my face. About 10 feet away looked up and our eyes met, my grin turned to laughter. I laughed, not a polite chuckle, but a deep cathartic howl that exercised all the Cooper demons from my soul. The look of anger, pain and confusion welling up on his face was a dish I had never tasted from a Michigan fan and I reveled in it. In a city of 9 million, our paths crossed at exactly, from my view, the right time. No words were exchanged. We passed, never to see each other again. But I feel safe in saying neither of us will forget those few seconds at 46th and 6th Ave in Midtown, and that is my best sports moment.

If you think a reorg is equal to being fired then you clearly have no idea what it means to be fired.

Fired is when they call your ass down to HR while someone else boxes up your personal belongings and they tell you if you are seen on company property after today they will call the police.  That, is "being fired".  Seeing as Hinton is still employed by the Ohio State Athletic Department he was in no way, shape or form, fired.

I attended a Catholic HS in the late 80's when ND was winning MNC's and Ohio State was losing to Indiana.  I was given so much unending hell for being an Ohio State fan that I will always and forever hate ND. $#%$# ND and their fans.

Based upon perspective, lighting, shadow and pixelation I am 100% certain this is not real, wrap or stickers.  I owned a car with real buckeye leafs on it and they don't like anything like this in photographs.  I spent years with the real deal, this screams fake.

The Roku and Nexus products are already wifi.  In fact all 3 of the products Sling TV offer are strictly wifi.  Looks like you already got your wish.

The drunk wouldn't be able to sue, they wouldn't have standing, but the bike riders can.  I doubt most people that have a job where they might sell alcohol truly understand the liabilities they are taking on when they do so.

Jastot, your ad hominem attack on Slum is inappropriate.  Learn how to express your opinion without insulting others.

CZ is optically flawless casting a brilliant array prismatic colors and not one of them is covered in blood and not one penny goes to the DeBeer's family.  I am PROUD that our Buckeyes won't be helping the immoral profiteering of the DeBeers while commemorating their big win.

After last winter I moved away form Cbus.  I don't mind the cold (super fun with a forced induction car) and snow is beautiful and fun.  However, the ice you have to live with for weeks after a big snow is just awful.  I had a bad spill off icy steps a few years back and grazed the corner of a concrete step.  An inch to the side an that might have been it for me.  Also, every accident I have been in as diver or pass and at fault or not has involved ice.  I like seasons.  I like snow.  I hate ice.  There is no redeeming ice.

Also as a person that like driving older cars the salt used to combat ice ends up destroying that which I enjoy.

This is about the money.  About being able to stop the players from being able to get paid or unionized.  That's why it's only for revenue sports.  They don't care how bad they muck it up.  They think most of us will come no mater what they do and as a result figure that 100% of 1 billion is better than 80% of 950 million.  And you know, they are probably right.  Yeah the game will suffer but it'll still be what's going on during a fall Saturday.

Don't be surprised if this gets through.  Don't be surprised at all.

I have always thought it to be the weather.  Northern kids get what, 9 months at the most?  Southern kids can go year round.  Over the course of 4 years of high school that gives the southern kids an extra 12 months, an entire year, of pick up games, outdoor leagues, etc.  Also the milder weather makes it easier to be multi-sport as you have an entire year to spread schedules out. This is, in my opinion, why there are more stars on the players in the south.  They simply have more experience on the average.
