Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

A few observations about that old game footage. Telling the teams apart in B&W footage is nearly impossible. Apparently wool jerseys came in two shades. Dark and darker. Finally, refs in those days didn't trot around like the older dudes today. They hauled ass!  They were certainly younger and more fit that the refs we have today. Funny to watch them just dive into the pile, rather than sit back and watch. Looks very much like club league rugby now - just with a lot more fans.

It's 2:30am and I'm just hearing about this? Now how am I supposed to get to sleep? Dammit Birm, this is more like a nightmare. Didn't we swear we'd be together forever? You may be named for a city in Alabama, but you're still the best, most consistent writer on Buckeye recruiting I've ever read. Ah, the great ones always leave us too soon...Happy Trails bro (pouring out my 40 in memorium). Go kick some ass in whatever you plan to do next!

Even more great information!  Thanks for taking the time to pass along all the details, I've made note of all of them. Handling the traffic is especially big, so 275 to Reed Hartman would work perfectly during rush hour. Appreciate your taking the time to suggest apartments as well.

Thanks for the tips!  I've been furiously copying all the names and locations and have found myself seriously hungry in the process. I can get along well in any new place as long as the food is good.

Now that's the kind of info that makes choosing where to live a whole lot easier. Thanks for taking the time to fill me in on all the details!  Any kind of traffic blows, so I'll avoid 275 if I can help it. I'll get back to you if I think of anything else!
