In the 11W game since November 2006, Chris has seen the site grow from the longer than necessary breast feeding years into the chill bro that you experience today. A lifelong Columbus resident, his love for Ohio State was instilled at an early age by a Pop that spoke of Ohio State football and basketball with a professor's insight creating a passion now channeled through our corner of the Buckeye blogosphere. Taking advantage of not knowingly having children, Chris spends too much time at the golf course, minor league baseball games and hitting concerts in between spending summers watching the New York Yankees.

Favorites

  • SPORTS MOMENT: It's a tie. I'm a diehard Buckeye and Yankee fan so...
    1. Seeing Ohio State beat Miami for the one and only national title of my lifetime
    1A. Seeing the Yankees win the '96 series. It wasn't the first of my lifetime but the first since I began religiously following them in 1983 when Mattingly was called up for good from Columbus.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Chris Spielman
  • NFL TEAM: None.
  • NHL TEAM: Columbus Blue Jackets
  • NBA TEAM: None. But I do watch a lot of NBA.
  • MLB TEAM: New York Yankees
  • SOCCER TEAM: Yawn

I heard too many stories about Zeke's egomania off the field to include him in my personal list of favorites though I'd never argue with his on field excellence. As for Tatum, I love everything I read about his play etc, but for my criteria, as I mentioned above, I just think it's hard to list a guy as a personal all-time favorite if I wasn't even alive to see/comprehend his play (versus reading, videos, stories from others).

Tatum would definitely be on my list of favorites if it didn't matter in my chosen criteria if I was actually around to witness his exploits live. For me, I just think to call someone an "all time favorite" it's hard to include someone that I only read about, watched videos, or heard stories.

I'd definitely give Doss the nod over Bell as far as overall success as a collegian. Remember though, this list was about "favorite" not necessarily "best". I'm just a big Vonn Bell fan for reasons stated. He just so happened to supplant Doss on my list for variable reasons - not so much straight up results on the field.

Thanks for setting me straight on what definitively isn't cool. You sound like the type of guy I'm glad I don't run into at a show so I guess we're both winners.
