This is why I don't make those types of bets, though... The mere chance that I might have to wear that God awful jersey is enough to keep me up at night...

The Buckeyes biggest threat, IMO, is themselves.  Will they be able to play smart football 3 games in a row against sparty, ttun, and Big Ten Championship?  (I know, see 2014).  If they can avoid stupid penalties, play fundamentally sound, and open up the offense more from what we've seen, then they should be fine.  But these are 18-22 y/o kids who are already playing without much depth in the WR's and, for whatever reason, get bit by the injury bug on both sides of the ball entirely too much.  I expect there to be a letdown that could be very damaging in at least one of those 3 games...Hopefully, I'm wrong.  I just think those last (potentially) 3 games are going to be grueling...

The Sugar Bowl that apparently didn't happen against Arkansas...  I was at that game.  It was all you could ask of Tressel...Exciting, yet frustrating and somehow, just somehow, you knew he'd find a way to have the team persevere.  Of course, since it never really happened... ;-)

I was at the Missouri game on this date in '98.... Fond memories as, though I had been to many a Buckeye road game, it was my first of now many games inside the Shoe...

I can't WAIT to see how they spin this....!!!!!!

He doesn't pick against the Buckeyes.  He roots against the Buckeyes and it manifests itself into the form of some kind of 3rd rate prediction.  Let him do his thing; he's got to eat, too.  He will just continue to be the equivalent of dead to me....!

I may just have to stop reading your touching pieces once and for all, Ramzy... That said, I wish I had your writing skills.  Bravo as always....

Tim Spencer, the guy who played the lieutenant in NYPD Blue, Ron Perlman, Peter Graves, Ricky Schroeder, Kareem Abdul-Jabaar SIDEBAR: he was not flying the plane; he was waiting at baggage claim with some tiny, buxom blond who was carrying two NBA sized basketballs inside her shirt and my dad, ever the discretion specialist yelled out within earshot "Hey, there's Wilt Chamberlain!"  But I digress...

I'm sure there are others but, with a list as great as this, why try to remember the others?!?! ;)

Sadly, Chuck E Cheese in my neck of the woods has been a Gangsta's Paradise for over 25 years and nobody of anything close to a reputable upbringing would come within a mile of the place. Fights are an every weekend occurrence and they stopped serving alcohol years ago (didn't help). I'm pretty sure the big singing rat wears a bulletproof vest, too. Anyways, point is, this is  not shocking to me at all...

Spoiler Alert... Don't let all the turnovers in the NC Game (should they make it that far) get you down...

I didn't even need to click on the link to know that Sports Night would be a big winner on this thread.  The cancellation of that show was a freakin tragedy...

Comment 26 Feb 2015

Sat at a park picnic bench across from Tom Selleck at a Children's Hospital function in Los Angeles back in 2004.  He was very unassuming, didn't really say word.  Ate his hamburger.  My wife and I left him alone.  And then we finished our lunch, got up, and left... I'm sure Tom was kicking himself for not building up the courage to start a conversation with me...

I've lived on the west coast the majority of my life, so the games I've attended are limited.  Still, I've been to a few memorable ones... They are as follows:

9/79 vs. UCLA at the LA Coliseum when UCLA and USC both played there.

1/80 vs USC at the Rose Bowl

12/82 vs BYU at the Holiday Bowl

9/89 vs USC at the LA Coliseum (hot miserable day)

12/93 vs BYU at the Holiday Bowl

9/94  at University of Washington (I'll never understand why Cooper chose to go for it on 4th down in field goal territory when down by 10 points...Put the easy points on the board.  Of course, they failed to convert on 4th down and sealed the deal for UW).

1/97 vs ASU at the Rose Bowl (a classic)

9/98 vs Mizzou at the Shoe (my first time inside the hallowed grounds)

11/00 vs. Michigan State at the Shoe

9/8/01 vs. Akron (Tress' first game and 3 days before 911)

9/22/01 vs. UCLA at the Rose Bowl (blazing hot painful game and first game after 911)

11/01 vs. Illinois at the Shoe (Bellisari # .08 arrested for DUI day before the game)

10/02 vs SJSU at the Shoe (SJSU is my alma mater but I rooted for their dismantling that day and was not disappointed).

1/03 vs. Miami (National Championship game...'nuff said).

9/06 vs. Texas in Austin (some of the nicest fans ever...)

1/09 vs. Texas at the Fiesta Bowl (heartbreaking loss)

1/11 vs. Arkansas at Sugar Bowl (Tat V and Tress' last game...Thanks Coach)

9/11 vs. Akron at the Shoe (The first game of the legendary Fickell era  and my son's first Ohio State game.  Damn, was it hot that day...)

9/13 vs. Cal up in Berkeley (Buckeye Nation west)

9/14 vs. Navy in Baltimore (with my son)

....So that's an even 20....   GO BUCKS
