Hey, almost all of the weddings I go to have an open bar.  If you're going to get hitched and have a cash bar after you've attended many of your friend's and family's weddings where they paid for the booze and you drank your fill, it's your turn to pay it back.  

Don't be like the stiff who accepts drinks paid for others at the bar and doesn't reciprocate.

Whatever it takes to keep this kid healthy.  He's got those mad skills that'll make him a threat every time he touches the ball.  The series of injuries he had as a high school senior are a cause for concern.  Let's hope that maturation and the Buckeyes strength and conditioning programs help to keep him in game shape.....IMO he can be a special player!

Once again, we're on the verge of another Brown's training camp.  Hope springs eternal and the local press will write and talk about improvement and how good the players look compared to last year. We've got a whole new coaching staff this year and a much better attitude!  Yeah, right.

 The Browns practice against the Browns....any team would look good!  I'm expecting this season to bring on more inept play, injuries and excuses while Truck Stop Jimmy keeps on chortlin' like a Tennessee Moon Pie salesman!

A lot of references to buying from Scalpers in the responses.  If I make the trip down from Cleveland for the BG game, what are my chances of getting three tickets on the street?  I'd be bringing my kids, so I want to have a good chance for success...is it worthwhile?

If so, where's the best places to run into a Scalper or two?

Here's a recommendation on a great book from one of the "old guys"..

John Feinstein wrote a very good Bobby Knight story "A Season on the Brink"  It's already been mentioned in this thread, but I know it's better than any Harbaugh fluff piece that might come out in the future.

That gif is funny as hell.  This goof just came up from Mom's basement and tried a stunt he saw on the internet!

Baltimore Ravens...2000.  Four years after leaving Cleveland, this bunch wins the Super Bowl.  Led by the legendary Trent Dilfer on offense and Ray Lewis on D.    F 'em!!

"He also finished that season with an ankle broken so badly a plate had to be inserted into his leg to stabilize it."

I still believe that the "roll up" tackle that caused that injury during the SCum game was cheap and with an intent to injure JT.  Had that tackle been done in an NFL game, the defender would have been fined and targeted by opponents.  

Little did we know how it gave Cardale his big break!

My respect for Steve Martin grew a bit today.....I've always liked Bluegrass music.  If Steve is good enough to play with Earl Scruggs, you know he's good.

That Foggy Mountain Breakdown video is fantastic.  The coordination between musicians and instruments is amazing.  

Thanks for sharing it

Truck Stop Jimmah......HA HA HA HA You boys have no idea that I'll be firin' your asses soon!!HA HA HA HA HA

Never has an NFL owner earned a lower level of respect by all.  This grifter makes my skin crawl.

The hissy fit he threw on the sidelines during the Northwestern game was close to a "melt down".  The A-Hole ripped his headset and jacket off and flung them to the ground in protest of a PI call.  Rather than criticize him the announcers praised his actions as "showing his team he has their back".

Joe Bolden?  I can't help of thinking (happily) of Bolden being juked, tackling at air and following the Buckeyes as they ran by him last November.  Of course, we did the same to Jake Ryan the year before and he's now getting serious NFL PT.   The gap in talent between our skill players and TSUN's became obvious over the past 2-3 years.

All of the covers by "Playing for Change" are really good.  Check out Marley's "Redemption Song"...you won't be disappointed!

As time goes on, I appreciate the covers that the Blues Brothers did of so many great blues tunes.  When they first started to perform, I took them as an extension of an SNL skit.  After Belushi died, I listened to their music more and it finally came to me how talented they were and that music was a great second career for Belushi and Akroyd.  They certainly had an all star cast of musicians behind them.  

"Who's makin' love to your old lady"....one of my favorite covers they did.
