I'm originally from Columbus, but now reside in NC. I am a youth and worship minister at a church in High Point. Outside of the Buckeyes, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, kayaking), riding roller coasters, playing frisbee golf, listening to/playing music, and watching movies and TV (LotR, 24, Psych).

Agreed. Mrs. fanatik and I got married in January of 2010, and I told her that we had to have it at least a week after the national championship game, in case we were to play in it and lose. I definitely did not want to have that happen the same week I got married, for my sake or for those who were coming.

Awesome perspective that I've never thought about before regarding Sparty. I guess, like you said, that's what makes them impossible to not admire (except for this weekend). Should be a battle on Saturday - get this one, and we're one step closer to celebrating on January 11th!

We had just moved and it was the first game in the new house. I didn't get the cops called on me, so I figured I probably had cool neighbors.

At least keep him in the backfield to block. Way too many empty sets yesterday for as bad as our protection was.

Great finish to that game. Thought Houston was done partway through the first half. Heck of a comeback with a backup qb (can't think of where I've seen that one before ).

Our college choir was recording at a studio in Nashville during that game, which a few of us convinced the engineer to turn on in the mixing area. I remember I had to put my water bottle outside of the room towards the end because I was afraid I was going to chuck it and break some super expensive piece of equipment. Very frustrating game.

Lobdell is probably my favorite in Columbus. Beautiful layout. It's a hike, but well worth it.

Marysville has one. Also a nice course at the Delaware State park. Check out pdga.com. They have a directory.

Edit - I would assume you know about the one in the West Campus parking lot, as well. Just didn't see it mentioned above.

I know you don't put yourself in a situation to lose a game on a bad call, but holy crap! What were those refs even watching? That was terrible.

The ownership has a lot to do with it, I think. Yeah, you have lifelong fans in the NFL, but you have people who have given their time and money to the university over the years. It is a place you made friends and memories, some of which happened to be watching a great football team every fall Saturday. That makes it more than just a fan buying a ticket. That is being invested in something bigger than you.

Well crap, then they should have a union for honors engineering students. They had no right to take away my honors scholarship for not maintaining the required 3.5 GPA! 

In all seriousness, though, this is a good punishment. JT will earn it back, and it sends the important message that no one is above the team.

And also full sized candy bars. Whoever gave "fun size" it's name should definitely lose their job. Nothing fun about it - you have to eat 4 to equal one normal candy bar!
