Akron boy who's family moved to Vermont when I was in elementary school. Parents & Grandparents were wise enough to return me to "The Heart Of It All" every year for summer vacation. The Navy took me after high school, around the country & across the Pacific twice. After my hitch and a bit I called it good. Working now on the civilian side just West of Seattle. Been a Buckeye fan my whole life. All the Cleveland teams/sports have come & gone (Strike this, Players Union that...) August 2002 I dropped MLB and went full Buckeye. Holy Buckeye what timing!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Cie Grant slinging Ken Dorsey to the ground on the final play. I turn to my dad and say "Get your shoes & coat. Lets go!". I drove through the start of a blizzard to make it to the pub just in time for "last call". We ordered 2 each to toast those Buckeyes!

    Close second: Joe Germaine to Dimitrious Stanley over & over, then Joe Germaine to David Boston to wipe that smile off Jake's face & keep my buddy Staz from hanging himself.

40 miles may not have been your goal but it's still a hell of an achevement! 

Just to let you know the post you did (2 years ago?) about your Angeles Crest run started my movement toward long distance running. It took a while to really get out there on my own as I have young kids and we enjoy running 5k races. I finally made the jump and did my first full marathon (Portland last October) and it was sheer stubbornness that got me through those last 5 miles.

I have a couple of marathons scheduled this spring and plan on moving up to my first big boy trail run this summer (Sasquatch 100k). I'll probably seek out some tips from you as the race gets nearer.

Thanks for sharing your adventures with us here!!

I see it as a little bit of both. Seems that when EGW came in 2 years ago the coaches saw he could play both sides of the ball and felt there was more of a need for him on Defense. Now the DB spots are deep and the WR group is struggling so they're moving him because he's too good to keep on the sidelines. Wishing it would have happened last year, hopeful that excels and gets some good playing time this year.

+1 on the Woodford Reserve, that's what I'm having. I'll be drinking it out of my favorite 13.5 oz glass too.

Hey, give the guy a break. He was just happy cause he knew 9-4 with a bowl win would lock them in to a top 10 pre season poll spot. Cause you know SEC!!
