  • SPORTS MOMENT: Parents were at the 2002 Fiesta Bowl. I was 17, and had a Mexican dish themed party at their house. Talking to dad after the game on the phone, both of our voices completely hoarse, but somehow still screaming. I will always remember that day.

Possibly a dumb question:  How does the "Buckeyes in the NFL" signage work?  Do the 16 dots on the wall represent the Buckeye players currently playing in the league, because that seems low to me.  Does it have a name and/or number on the dot?  Are the dots even relevant?  Are there horse socks?  Is anyone even listening to me?

I watched that Indians game last night, and even as a Reds fan felt badly for them.  Could have been a totally different game if Raburn hadn't decided to spike the ball and stop the clock there.

Nice to see a fellow Catanzaro doing some ninja things.  My sisters name is Casey Catanzaro, spelled differently than the other girl, but close enough that we've been asked about it 100 times.

Had Smash Burger for the first time yesterday.  Did the Baja Jalapeño burger.  It was pretty tasty, but fries being sold a la carte is kind of annoying and expensive.  The burger is good, but 6-7 bucks for a single patty burger just isn't worth it to me without some sort of side.

I don't understand what makes the goose picture cool.  Can anyone help me out with that?

The process required for bone marrow extraction is actually 20-30 hours over the course of 4-6 weeks, FYI.  Anyone considering joining the registry should be aware of the commitment, because it costs $100 just to add someone, so, the resources are wasted if that person goes back on his or her decision to donate.

There is a potential cure for leukemia, and that is through signing up for the bone marrow registry.  I hosted a drive at my school a couple of weeks ago and we added over 100 new people in two days.  It's a fairly simple process.  You provide a DNA sample by having your cheek swabbed, and if you're a match for anyone on the list then you either donate your blood stem cells, which is a procedure comparable to giving blood, or you get called to donate bone marrow which is more involved, but not as bad as the reputation.  You get put under, you get some of your bone marrow extracted from your hip, and you are sore for a couple of days.  That's it.  Healthy folks are typically back to their regular routine within a day.  In the process, you have more than likely cured someone of leukemia, sickle cell anemia, or one of several other blood diseases.  Not trying to preach, and I don't have an agenda here other than informing, but if you would like to learn more check out www.bethematch.org.  The more people who join the registry, the better chances someone like Zach has to find his or her match/cure.

Good points ASU.  Only catch is, that an officer is allowed to give what is called a preliminary breath test (which can't be used in court against the accused) before choosing a formal chemical test.  So, if the officer determined Roby was indeed under AN influence, he could do the preliminary breath test and then decide to do a urine test, which, as you already stated, Roby could certainly refuse.

However, in Ohio you are not entitled to speak with an attorney prior to deciding whether or not to submit to the test, so, if he was intimidated, didn't want to automatically lose his license for a year, or was unaware of his rights, it's still quite possible that he took a urine test.

I'd imagine he took a urine test.  If it comes back negative, he will not be in any trouble.  If he tests positive for any drug that affects driving in an adverse way, including THC, opiates, or amphetamines, he will get an OVI.

So, I sincerely believe that each of the three smoking child workers could kick my adult ass.

Man..  That "Little Boy Lost" story caused an impromptu dust storm in my room.

We call these "weird-ons" where I come from.  Those that pop up seemingly without rhyme or reason, such as ones that occur while making a sammich, or on a trip to the aquarium.

I was floored by this as well.  What an unbelievable talent.  RIP!
