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

Noooo! As a Cavs fan and a Duke basketball fan (I know, I know, please don't hate me!), I'm so stoked to have Kyrie playing for the Cavs. Plus, he was having a heck of a game up until getting hurt. Hopefully it isn't as bad as it sounds. What do you guys think? If he's (relatively) ok: play him in Game 2, or let him rest for Game 3 or whatever?

I googled "ice t ice cube shirt," and found a few sites that have it in various colors and styles. Might have to get one myself.

My stories are pretty lame. My marching band played halftime at a Purdue v Notre Dame game (at Purdue! Go figure) and at a Browns v Saints game in the old stadium. Slightly cooler (relatively), we also played at a skull session at St John's arena with TBDBITL. I've also been on the court at Cameron Indoor a few times. Mostly after games, but on parents weekend my freshman year, my parents and I were able to just walk right in and onto the court. It was pretty neat to be there when it was so empty and quiet.

My undergrad, JD, and LLM diplomas are in frames and ready to go on the ego wall of my office after we move. My high school diploma . . . I think I may have tossed it during a previous move, maybe? Or it could still be in a storage bin at my mom's. I have no idea. I like the sound of those Ohio State fancy frames. Mine are boring, but that's what happens when you don't go somewhere awesome like Ohio State, I guess!

I used to live in OB. I was just back there a couple weeks ago and had to stop at Hodads. Bacon cheeseburger with grilled onions, yummm! Great o rings, too.

I was going to say that the yellow mohawk seems out of character, as from what I've read he's a quiet guy.....

And then I remembered that when I was in high school, my pic was in the paper for the quiz team going to nationals (yes, I am a nerd), and I was sporting bright red hair and black fingernails. Oh, the style choices of the mid-90s...

Is there such a thing as a miracle for Buckeye tickets? ;-)  My guy (the converted, former AZ fan I mentioned last season) and I are thinking about going to the game at Cal, as we live in Tahoe.  I know he'll be able to get his ticket, at least.... I wonder if he'd mind if I hooked? KIDDING - but I am almost that excited* to see the Bucks in person for the 1st time since the 2006 Michigan game (I'm ignoring the 2008 USC game, because, well.)

*I totally just watched the end of the Nat Champ game, the end of the 2011 Wisky game, Script Ohio, and the video game halftime show, on top of reading 11W.  I'm twitchy.

Man alive, this game was painful (as a Duke bball fan).  If you put Ohio St's 1st half with Duke's 2nd half, you'd have one of the most miserable bball performances... At least I can fully focus on Buckeye football now!  And Duke football, if I wanted to....errrrrrr...... :-)

 

*There are only two good football memories I have from my time at Duke: 1) there were stands that sold fresh funnel cakes and frozen lemonade, and 2) when the opposing team would score, after their band would play, the Duke band (which was terrible, by the way) would play some loud, discordant note - basically the band version of sticking your tongue out at someone.

Ummmm.....I know I'll get about a billion downvotes for this, but.... GO DUKE!!!!!!

(In my defense, I grew up going to games at the Shoe, but went to Duke.  It's tricky.)

If it makes anyone feel better, I truly believe Duke will lose the rematch to Louisville, and if they don't, that they will lose in the Final Four to OSU.

Oh, wow, awesome!  Thanks!

Comment 07 Feb 2013

Yeah, it's terrible, but all I have is paint, minimal computer skiills, and no coffee. :-)

The Who played Baba O'Reilly last night (my favorite song) and tOSU gets Vonn Bell?!???  I CAN'T HANDLE THIS MUCH EXCITEMENT!!!

Is it September yet?

Comment 05 Feb 2013

Wilson committed last night.  Tonight I am seeing The Who.  Tomorrow is NSD.  Saturday is my birthday.  This just might be the best week ever!*

 

*Except for the whole trying to get organized to move while still working thing.  That part still kinda sucks. Has anyone invented teleportation yet? That would make things SO much easier!

Comment 05 Feb 2013

Love it! If I could give thumbs up, you'd have one. :-)

Comment 29 Jan 2013

THIS is my favorite kind of Who. I'm hoping to catch them here next week. *fingers crossed*
