Normally I would say parents should let the kid make their own choice, but with his background, inside knowledge, etc. I don't think KJ is going to make a poor decision for his son.

If still interested I'd be down - not sure if anyone has done these before but auction drafts are a lot more exciting.  My league has been doing one for 5 years now and I think it's the best way to draft - you're able to build your own team as you want.

Both floral costs sound high to me, but then again it all depends on how big of a wedding you're having.  I know some florists will quote the highest rate since they'll plan to use the most expensive flowers, flying them in since they may not be in season at the time locally, and hence costing you a ton more than it should.  I would suggest not just getting a base quote, but asking what that includes, what kind of flowers, etc.  Then as others have said you can figure that into the total cost of the wedding to determine really how much you want to be spending on flowers.

One suggestion though - don't cheap out on the photographer.  Outside of the venue (which included food, flowers, etc.), ours was the most expensive cost of the wedding, but well worth it when you look back and see all of the thousands of photos taken that day.

While it might be simple, it's the most comfortable t-shirt I've ever owned.  Seriously thinking about buying more of them since Nike always seems to discontinue the shirts I like most:

Losing Noah Brown for the season hurts (I feel terrible for him given the position he put himself in to start this year as well), but more so against VT given the suspenions.  Losing one quality WR is hard enough, losing four for the first game of the season will make that matchup even harder.  Urban will have to change his gameplan some, but on the plus side our defense remains healthy and can be the difference maker in that game.

Season 1 of Broadchurch - the BBC version, not the terrible remake by Fox.  One of the best stand alone seasons I've ever seen.  I actually stopped watching the show after that one season because I didn't want it ruined like other shows had been that went well past their prime...coughDextercough.

I live a pretty short drive (less than 2 hours) from Rutgers, and was looking to attend with my dad and brothers, but as you noted in the original post the single game tickets are almost as expensive as buying season tickets.  I'll probably still find somewhere to go for the game, but unless prices take a big drop closer to game time I'll likely not be attending in person.

I'm glad reading all of the positive responses throughout this thread.  I have to admit that I've felt like a poser at times going to Ohio State bars to watch games that are mostly filled with alumni, but going to OSU was never an option for me unfortunately.  I was born in Youngstown though and have been watching games with my Dad on weekends for as long as I can remember.  Was born and raised a Buckeye fan and hope to pass that love along to the next generation.

Salad most likely - I have neither the time nor energy to work out, so to try and not get too fat I'm forced to watch what I eat most days.  That usually allows me something a little more substantial, but with the wife 6 1/2 months pregnant now our dinners have drifted towards her cravings - generally great food that I can't complain about (pizza, pasta, etc.), but it's forced me to change my breakfast and lunch habits.

Nothing against him - I think he's a pretty good announcer, and manages to give his opinion now without showing bias, which is tough for someone who announces as many games as he does.

Happy Birthday - and thanks for starting this site!  I don't know what else I would read when I should be working during the day if you hadn't...

That is a lot of upvotes - and I felt a sense of accomplishment just joining the 99% club!  Long way to go to reach those levels...

With the hurry-up / no-huddle offense they run a lot would this even be feasible?  I'd imagine running a two QB system would come down to leaving one in for an entire series or drive instead of utilizing them for certain plays.
