  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2006 "Game" is my fav! Then the 2002 NC game only to be follwed up by the Buccaneers winning the SuperBowl a month later! Great time to be a Buc(k)s fan!

    Wow! Just realized I am in need of an updated "best sports moment" ; )
  • NFL TEAM: Tampa Bay Bucs

Seems like I've seen that picture someplace before...

Has been my icon for a few months now.

All day long Saturday, President Coleman was attending events related to the launch of the Victors for Michigan fundraising campaign. No alcohol was served at those events.


So she had her own travelers?

Happy Veteran's Day, Hove!  Thank you, and the rest of our great service men and women, for your service and sacrifice.

It's a southern thing.  Akin to "retched".  As in "He retched across the table to get him some more sugar for his tea".  ; )

I had to quit reading for now, due to the fact that my 14 y.o. son keeps asking me what I am laughing at! 

I shall return, albeit at an ungodly hour, as this is when the young ones tend to "sleep".

Ugh indeed.  The 2002 Outback Bowl.  Have hated the Game Cocks and their fans ever since.

Comment 28 Oct 2013

Had friends in from Florida just to go to the PSU game.  First time at the 'Shoe and first Buckeye game for a Georgia dawg and a WVU Mountaineer.  They said as they were going through airport security in Tampa, the worker asked where they were going in Ohio.  They responded they were visiting friends and going to the OSU game.  The TSA officer then preceeded to talk about TBDBITL and raving about the half-time show from the Wisconsin game.  He told them they would have the time of their life and "Go Bucks!".

We even managed to get them on the field before the game standing in front of the team for quick cals.  They sat in the seats through the entire half time and watched the show then stayed 'til the bitter end for Carmen Ohio. 

Needless to say, they returned to Florida fully in awe of our traditions and consider themselves Buckeye fans.

First story I clicked on... what a great way to start the day!  Thanks for sharing with us.

Good luck to that young man.  He seems to be very worthy of the scholarship.

My husband is one of those that works that "magic" everyday!  It is amazing to see how braces can change the entire appearance/disposition of anyone.  They can do wonders to self-esteem.

His many happy, smiling faces are testament to all of this!

How great!  I just went onto the website for Senior Independence Hospice and made a donation in honor of the two men towards the "Make it Happen" foundation.  It's wonderful that we can make dreams like this happen for our elders!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful story, 11W staff!

A KISS member was at Ohio Stadium on Saturday?... 

So this means my new icon is the real thing?? 

Comment 30 Sep 2013

Sent my husband (aka Gold Pants Man) without me.... glad he had a good time at the Gold Pants Social. lol

He loved meeting everyone that helps fill our days with Buckeye wisdom.  Thanks 11W!

Comment 18 Sep 2013

We love being both Buckeye fans and Buccaneer fans.  We just yell "Go Buc(k)s!" and the colors are close enough!  Do love me the winking pirate, tho. 

Agree, the pewter helmets are the best.

For some reason this made me laugh.  I know I shouldn't, but I imagine it playing out like a Monty Python skit.

Again, I apologize.

Comment 11 Sep 2013

Well said, Maestro.  I thought childbirth was bad until I had surgery on my big toe to remove a cyst.  No lie.  I thought I was dying everytime I had to lower my foot to walk  hobble somewhere.

Great article, Ramzy!  Thank you for putting this into perspective for all of us.
