Yeah, I was in the crowd that day and I remember us serenading him and Desmond with a chorus of "Jump!"

I love fantasy books. Tolkien and the Harry Potter books are some of my favorite of that genre. I enjoy Narnia, but they aren't on the same level as Tolkien and Rowling's books, imh. One of my all-time favorites is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Had quite a profound impact on me in high school. Also, for thrillers, Ted Dekker writes some really good stuff, like the Circle Series, Immanuel's Veins, and Boneman's Daugters.

Yeah, it's gotten really bad the last 5-10 years. But man I love listening to the older stuff, and even some guys that are relatively newer (Alan Jackson, George Strait). Zac Brown Band is definitely worth a listen, too - some of the best musicians in any genre today.

Fair enough. Wish I could get those down in NC (heck, I wish I could get more than 5 regular season Jackets games a year).

Comment 07 Sep 2014

Wasn't there, but there was a whole lot of noise being made for VT tonight. To the point I had to ask myself if we were the home team or not. Could have used the Blue Jackets fans who were cheering like crazy even when they got down 4-0 vs Pittsburgh.

Risk 2210 was a way of life for me and my friends growing up. Played a lot with 2 brothers from my church and watching them yell at each other during the game was almost as entertaining as the game itself.

Comment 05 Sep 2014

Yeah, Settlers is a blast to play. Many fun times with that one in high school and college. Our favorite game is Ticket to Ride. Fun and full of strategy with some luck thrown in. Plus, I love seeing people's reactions here in NC when I tell them that the blue and yellow trains can't sit next to each other.

Totally bummed about that. I live in Kernersville and have a lot of friends who are UNC fans. Was looking forward to going to the game with them.

Comment 12 Aug 2014

Agreed. The thing that has made me scratch my head about this whole situation is that people act like this "culture" is something that is only prevalent at Ohio State. This type of sexualized culture goes on all the time in bands. I saw it firsthand in high school. High school. I heard stories from the percussion bus that make me cringe now as a parent. We had nicknames for each other. My brother marched with DCI about 10 years ago (HS and college age) and it was the same there, from what he's told me. As much as I hate this hyper-sexualized culture that exists in the world of marching bands today, that is the reality for a lot of them. So if we are going to point the finger at and question OSU, we need to take a look at the band system as a whole, because it goes on everywhere.

I didn't get to hear him call many games, so most of my opinion comes from the '03 Fiesta Bowl. He and Dan Fouts were awful to listen to. About as one sided as it gets. I wish I had had a radio nearby so we could have muted the TV.

I remember in the early 90s, my parents bought a car from Pete Johnson. Pretty awesome getting to meet a former OSU football player as an 8 year old and getting his autograph. Didn't even care about the new car after that.

The fans definitely raised the bar last night. Almost brought tears to my eyes hearing them after the game. Incredible support for a bunch of guys who just would not give up and almost pulled off the most miraculous period in our 15 year history. Thanks for an incredible season, CBJ!

Comment 24 Apr 2014

I bet! Had a proud daddy moment the other night when my 7 month old started clapping when the CBJ came out of the tunnel at the beginning of the game. It's been quite bittersweet for me living in NC the last two seasons. I went to so many games in HS and college and watched us lose by 5 or 6 goals that to have us doing well when I'm so far away kinda stinks. I love it for the team and for the city, though. They totally deserve it and last night was what I have been hoping to see in that arena since the first season. Hopefully we can win Saturday and close it out Monday night at home!

Comment 24 Apr 2014

Amen. His excitement for being in Columbus has been infectious and is a big reason for the culture shift we've seen these last 2 seasons. It's amazing what can happen when someone plays with passion and they like being here (*cough* Jeff Carter *cough*).

Comment 24 Apr 2014

Tonight was possibly the 2nd greatest sports moment in my 29 years on this earth. What I would have given to be in NWA tonight. Looked like the roof was gonna blow off of that place. What an awesome moment 15 years in the making. And it was quite nice to be on the flip side of a final minute game-tying goal. Great game CBJ!
