As I sit here waiting for the PSU game to start, the reality of my life comes in to full focus....an unfortunate moment of clarity. I need an intervention. Am I truly waiting for Penn State to play? Tell me it isn't so.... I need a drink.
I agree with DJ. It costs these kids' families thousands and thousands of dollars a year to get to the World Series. It would be nice if ESPN helped them recoup some of that money. To me the tragic thing about the LLWS is the best players or teams aren't even represented because of the expense involved. I always thought it would be kind of neat if ESPN...or even MLB sponsored some of these tournaments. MLB is always lamenting the lack of inner city kids in the MLB. It would be a great way to get these kids exposure, experience and most importantly involved.
Would OSU have to report it for secondary violations?
Maybe Buckeye fans should try and take over UM stadium for the game. It would be a great recruiting tools.
I'll hold my excitement until we get a BOOM from Pantoni.
Wrestling is a great sport that doesn't get the recognition it deserves. I have two boys that wrestled in high school and it is the toughest sport to prepare for...at least at the school they attended. I have the utmost respect for the kids that participate in that sport. Welcome aboard Kyle and glad to have you as a Buckeye.
I'll give you a reason to like him. He picked the good guys to make the playoffs
It certainly does. It looks like many of us have also grown,
I don't see why you assume it was Lebron that orchestrated the Love deal, Maybe indirectly he did. The Cav's were trying to get Love even before Lebron signed on. But Love said he would not sign an extension if he was traded to the Cav's. Once Lebron was on board, Love changed his tune. The Cav's would have been foolish not to try and get a few of his old buddies that knew how to win championships and lead in the locker room to help this young team.
I didn't watch the whole celebration, but from what I watched, I think fans would have been very disappointed in the celebration if they went there just to see him. I got the impression he used that venue to bring attention to his I Promise and Wheels for Education projects.
Maybe I'm wrong. I hope not. I am amazed at how much he has grown as a man over the last 4 years, There were so many things that I disliked about him as a person, even before the Decision. I was one of those people that didn't want him back in Cleveland. About 2 years ago he started silencing all the issues I had with him. As a player, I could NEVER root for him in a Miami uniform, but his off the field stuff made me take notice that he was starting to make good decisions with his life. As a person, I was actually starting to like him, even though I was still miffed at the way he left us and was thrilled when they lost in the finals to the Spurs. As a matter of fact, every time they won in the play-offs was almost as bad as watching my beloved Buckeyes lose. So now as I sit here, I realize I have come full circle and have actually forgiven him for the Decision and rejoice that he is now a Cavilier, very similar to someone else that took their talents to Florida and came back home to our Buckeyes.
Cavs game. It is going to be INSANE! The only thing that would change my mind on this if both OSU and you know who are playing for something other than bowl games
Great post. Great comments.
~~Marriage is about both parties,
This is very true. So....why would she book the trip knowing that is something important to him? He didn't tell her 'no', (his part of the compromise) just that he would be not available for a couple of hours.
~~I have tried to teach (and will continue to) my kids, nieces and nephews that words are what you make of them. There are appropriate times and inappropriate times.
I sure hope this is in line with what you're nieces and nephews parents are teaching them.
Sorry, I think this posted in the wrong place. My phone doesn't do a very good job with comments
“Coach Fickell changed his viewpoint and he said, ‘I’m not gonna blame anybody anymore, it’s gonna be the defense and the defense is together,” senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett said during Big Ten Media Days last week
Wow. I knew there was dissention on the team, but I didn't know it ran that deep
Just yesterday I was wondering where the heck you've been. Glad to have you back!
I don't normally like to swear but that's some funny shit
"skeeves", hahaha. definitely from the Youngstown area.
If Nate reeled it in, why isn't he holding it? Also, that hat has got to go!
Now the only thing that has to happen is to see Lebron wearing an Indian hat, preferable in Yankee Stadium. I can then die in peace.
That doesn't have anything to do with your Cincinnati roots, does it?
Even though I stated earlier I didn't like Lebron, after reading his article, I am actually ready to cry. Is this crazy or what?
I agree. The letter is a ploy to deflect the anger to Gilbert instead of Lebron. In a sense I can't stand Lebron, but do I want him to come back? Yes, but for one reason and one reason only.....to bring a Championship to Cleveland. Then he can slip off the face of the earth for all I care. If all Steven Smith says is true, Lebron hasn't changed in 4 yrs. He is still demanding his entourage and mother have pretty much everything they want. The difference is Gilbert gave him all he wanted, while Miami didn't. I'll be a little disappointed if he doesn't come to Cleveland....okay, I'll be very disappointed if he doesn't come back but I am optimistic without him. We now have a good core of young talent and a proven coach that can work with unselfish players and make them into a cohesive team.
I still refuse to click on any link to ESPN, although I do watch some live games online
