I've bought autographed memorabilia but sitting there with a sharpie and a football is like bringing a baseball glove to a MLB game.  Totally kosher for a kid, a bit iffy for an adult.

I left the 2003 NC State game with 10 minutes to go and get beer for the after party.  I saw Rivers throw the game tying TD at the bodega and 13th and pearl.  I ran down the street with two flat cases of natty like a total clown.  I've never felt dumber in my life.

Seriously, what the fuck.  

 

Family Ties and The Drew Carey Show were both better than Clarissa Explains It All.  Shit, 3rd Rock From the Sun was better than Clarissa Explains It All.  What I'm saying here is that Clarissa Explains It All was bad and you should feel bad for saying otherwise.  

 

Top 2 are absolute locks for me...

1-New Jersey, The Sopranos

2-Maryland, The Wire

***Gap the size of the cosmos***

(after the B1G 2, no particular order)

Ohio, Family Ties

Pennsylvania, The Office

Minnesota, Coach

Michigan, Freaks and Geeks

Indiana, Parks and Rec

Pennsylvania, The Office

Illinois and Wisconsin is another WTF situation.  For Wisconsin, Step by Step was total shit.  Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, That 70's Show were all better.  Illinois, I mean, this is obviously debatable because there were like 1000s of shows set in Chicago.  ER most notably but  Married with Children, Family Matters were both at least in the same echelon of Roseanne (maybe not ratings-wise). What about Perfect Strangers?  For shits and giggles, I'll go with Balky and Larry.  

And rounding out the also-rans, Iowa and Nebraska with seriously whatever TV shows that were ever based there.

Here we are, at the beginning of an era.  Let's hope this one ends differently than the last 4.

El Guapo is going to ruin some people this year.  The waiting...I can't.

Do you mean Rhino Bar in Georgetown?  That's the OSU bar I generally go to.    I will be there most other games but I will be on a bachelor party trip for the opener.

"Touchdown Y'all" Williams.  I will always think that when I see his name.

Don't lump brunch in with those assholes.  Brunch is awesome.  Wine at a football game on the other hand? Yeah that's a michigan man alright.

Is Linder refering only to punts/fgs?  He said OSU's ST was "very poor in all aspects" despite taking a punt to the house, holding Toledo to 21 per punt return and 18 per KO return (both less than OSU's averages).  Yes, the punt block was atrocious but that wasn't the same issue we had with Miami last year. 

Yes, ST will need to play at a very high level and after last year's debacle, I will be holding my breath on every play but hard to say that OSU ST looked terrible "in all aspects".  FGs and punt team blocking/ coverage need to be stepped up (considerably) but KO coverage seemed to level off last year and seems to be maintaining this year (albeit with a small sample size).
