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.

First: Three Dog Night with my dad and uncle at Valley Dale Music Hall when I was probably about 10 years old.

Best: Phish 10/31/14, 12/7/97, 12/31/13, 8/17/96. In that order (out of 56 and counting).

Yep. He switching. Again. Not saying he can't crack the rotation but I think it's a bit telling that he hasn't found a home where he actually sees meaningful minutes after all these years.

yeah, thought about Hubbard. Just don't know enough about him to know where he fits. I believe he's skilled but have only heard how great he is without getting to see anything plus among Urban's drooling, he's has been in like 3 different position groups.

I think I used the word "legit" in there somewhere to talk about the gap between titles. 1970 team lost by 10 in the Rose Bowl and Nebraska ended up the AP #1 so I think it's fair to say the '70 claimed national title is dubious at best. At same time, I like saying we have 8 national titles so I'm admittedly wishy-washy about it.
