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. :-)

Favorites

  • 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

If those donors are still feeling generous, I've got a pile of student loans that need to be paid off. :-) Those are some crazy fundraising totals. 

Off topic: Bar exam starts Tuesday. Ugh. Any recommendations for bar exam hype songs? When I took the CA bar, I just played "Mama Said Knock You Out" on repeat, but I'd appreciate some additional material given the long drive from CLE to Wilmington. Thanks in advance! :-)

Bert. Yorkies. Swimsuit. South Beach.

I can't decide if the mental image is funny or heave-inducing. Both? I mean, I'm in no position to fat shame anyone, but I'm also not putting myself in a swimsuit ANYWHERE, especially not South Beach.

Think of the people, Bert! They already lost LeBron and Dwyane. Don't make them lose their eyesight!

My sis got free tickets to a Britney Spears show. She said that even though it was (she assumed) mostly lip synced, the performance as a whole was fantastic.

I'll have to check them out! 

(Not the Seven Mary Three riots. Really? Lol)

Wow, really? I'm not denying her voice, but I would have thought it'd put me to sleep! :-) Cool!

I don't listen to country much, but from what I've heard (my ears, not word of mouth), she has a really nice voice.

Being child-free I don't know the Wiggles. I give you all the upvotes  (ok, I only have one, but in spirit! ) for being a good parent. :-)

They did a free show at a burger joint in my old hood (Hodad's, Ocean Beach, San Diego) around that time. I sincerely regret letting my hatred of crowds get the better of me on that one. :-(

I can't and won't judge! A great show is a great show! 

I still can't get over the ridiculousness of their lyric "did we make it to the milky way," though. Bruh . . . We kinda made it by default . . .

I still sing along. :-)

Born at Riverside Methodist in Columbus. My parents moved to Defiance while I was a baby. Spent my first two years of college in Durham, NC, before I transferred to CWRU. I then lived in Cleveland Heights/Case area for 7 years. Moved out to San Diego, then bounced around Cali for 9 years before moving back to Cleveland Heights last summer (from north Lake Tahoe).

I love Cleveland.

I get ID'd often to buy booze, which is nice.

My favorite time that I was ID'd happened in DC 10 years ago. I was out to dinner with my dad and younger sister (then 24. I was 27.). We all ordered wine. I was the only one carded. My sister laughed at me for it. I pointed out, "That just means you look older than your older sister." That shut her up pretty quickly! :-)
