I went to my first Ohio State football game when I was around 7 years old, and probably attended at least one game every season thereafter through 2006, when I moved to California. In spite of this, I went to Duke, and am a huge Duke basketball fan, which has made me feel pretty conflicted the last couple years. :-)

  • SPORTS MOMENT: The night before my law school graduation, I got to go to Game 6 of the NBA playoffs (Cavs vs. Pistons). My dad's friend had somehow nabbed 3rd row seats right behind where players would inbound the ball. Cleveland lost that game, but that wasn't the end of the night. We then went to the Foundation Room, where we dined with one of the owners of the Yankees, who let my dad and me try on one of his World Series rings. It was a loooong night, and I'm pretty sure I was still drunk at graduation (classy, I know), but it was completely surreal and something I doubt I will ever experience again.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: As far as current players go: Cardale Jones, Ezekiel Elliott, Joey Bosa
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: Tyus Jones, probably. Duke has entered the one-and-done game, so it's harder to choose.
  • NFL TEAM: Browns
  • NBA TEAM: Cavs
  • MLB TEAM: Indians

I can't imagine what it must be like to be recruited by Ohio State and other big time programs. I got a lot of college info sent to me because I'm a nerd, and it *was* overwhelming, but none of it came with fancy campus visits or coach visits. Can't wait to see Trevon play!

I'm back in Ohio now, sorry! :-) I had been in Tahoe, San Diego, and the Central Valley, so if you need any recommendations (at least as to the last two), let me know!

This video is so true. I stopped telling people I was a lawyer when I was still in CA. The questions never stopped! Being older now, i have an answer, "Why don't we set something up to discuss this?" :-)

No job opps, yet. Ideally, tax and/or estate planning, though I'm very flexible. I was doing mostly general civil litigation in CA prior to moving back. I was lucky to get that job, given the crash in 2008! I'm mostly out of shape, when it comes to the law. Last thing I researched and drafted was in 2013!
