Spectacular and moving as always.
I was at the Shoe with my roommate watching the Buckeyes beat up on his native Penguins, jabbing him in the ribs anytime he rooted for YSU. Earlier that morning my brother, a huge Michigan fan, texted me (and I'll never forget this) "at the big house, life is good". To which I replied, "At the Shoe, life is better." The stadium in-game announcements kept us semi up to date with the Michigan score and as our game slowed down to a Tressel 30+ point lead trickle, I left looking for a TV.
Now DJ mentions having BTN in Montana, but many of us with Time Warner in Columbus didn't have BTN yet. So I hit up a few bars on High hoping for a DirecTv establishment. With no luck, I went home which was nearby on 14th and brought up the game online on Gamecast. App St. had just taken the lead and I sat talking on the phone to my girlfriend. Suddenly, the Manningham catch happens and I see huge streak on the Gamecast window deep into FG territory. I tell her "Michigan is going to win" and sit for an eternity waiting for it to update with a made FG and go final. Then something amazing happened. It just went final, 34-32. I just remember screaming that App St won, and running out onto my roof that faced the street and screaming out the score to shocked and delighted Buckeye fans walking back to their apartments and cars.
Michigan wasn't a complete laughingstock at this time, so we hardly knew the laughs yet to come, but this upset is something I'll never forget. And neither will they.
Isn't Darron Lee from New Albany? Thinking of Von Bell or am I mistaken?
I figured he'd have completed at least one season before this was acknowledged.
I achieved nirvana during Zeke's run. I was on another plane of existence. I don't remember what I was doing but I was told by the others I was watching with that I was jumping up and down and unleashed a primal scream that could awaken dormant volcanoes.
No matter what happens, we'll have always Holy Buckeye and 85 Yards Through The Heart of the South.
I miss them playing Slayer right before kick off. Sure it scared the cheerleaders but I was ready for blood.
Awesome! Go Bucks!
I never had anything stolen but my car was vandalized significantly twice. Sad reality of living near campus. 83 East 14th will forever be an experience I won't forget, but it had it's drawbacks.
Dammit Ramzy, I'm at work. I can't be carrying on giggling like a little girl like this. This is very irresponsible of you.
That has to be a fun day at work.The fact that he looks like he plays for a high school golf team makes it even better.
I don't remember Dan Orlovsky going to Iowa.
Ridiculous that this still exists anywhere but it does everywhere. It's a very small minority and unfortunately the expanse of social media allows for disgusting people like this to have a louder voice than they truly do in society.
I can only hope the next AD/Coach bring as many laughs as the current.
No child deserves that kind of trauma. Heartbreaking.
WTF Noah? Hanging out with kids who don't have to worry about drug testing? It's not fair, but you don't get the freedom of the everyday college kid. Better get to figuring that out.
It's fine, I could try to clarify my statement but when an FDNY firefighter disagrees with you on 9/11 you're gonna look like an a-hole regardless.
Well it's certainly more important that it means something to you than if it means something to me or not.
It's not like I'm pro-9/11 over here.
Not a bad Saturday. At least there's one game that should be worth watching at every time slot. The Buckeyes playing at noon certainly helps that.
So now I'm against firefighters? Great.
Uh, it's a flag added to the helmet? Hardly the first time it's been done. I expected some heart melting speech or something.
The pessimist in me expected worse so I guess this is good news. Not that it really matters much until the end of the season.
I'll never look at that picture the same way because of who he was, but also because of how you told it. Well done, Ramzy.
I'm just killing time until Thursday. Saturday seems too far away to aim for just yet.
And I still like College Gameday if it's a good atmosphere, even if I say "oh, fuck off" out loud a couple times.
I am not and it's mostly your fault!
That's the Union I know at the top. The new Union was finished the year after I graduated. Damn kids.
