Over the last several years, with the exception of 2011 (a year which actually never happened and should be erased from the annals of history), I have gone into the  game with a confident yawn.  This year?  Shew.  Ohio State versus Michigan, #2 versus #3, Meyer versus Harbaugh, conference implications, playoff implications, national title implications....  Ladies and gentlemen, sign me up.  This is what it's all about.

A seat belt saved my life on two occasions.  On a snowy Thanksgiving night in 2007, I slid on icy back-roads going around 25MPH and slammed into a concrete culvert.  I would have, without question, gone straight through the windshield had I not been wearing my seat belt.  The state trooper at the scene confirmed this, stating that I was very lucky.  In February of 2011, I was driving a minivan (like a boss) and flipped 3 times into a ditch after (again) being a victim of Ohio winter roads.  The car landed upside down, with me dangling from my seat.  My belt still fastened and I was virtually unharmed.  It's worth noting that the day continued to suck, as I fell down the flight of stairs leading up to my apartment about a half an hour after arriving home from the scene of the crash.  I no longer felt like a boss.

I find it interesting how her friends seem to be surprised that this happened to her. Which tells me it's not a regular occurrence.

In all honesty, I doubt that the people commenting on Instagram are her close friends, and with something like domestic abuse, I'd imagine the circle of friends who knew of the alleged abuse to be a small one.  If I posted something life-changing on social media, the people commenting there would likely not be my close friends.  My close friends would be calling or texting me directly.  For example, imagine posting something on Facebook or Twitter about you being mugged or something.  Now imagine your best friend making a comment on that post.  Odds are you would have texted that friend prior to ever posting anything publicly.  Just my two cents.
