  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was part of some really good high school football teams while at Grove City. We were near the top rankings in the state and country. My junior year we played Troy who had Ryan Brewer. It was an offensive slugfest that we wone 43-45, but it was amazing! Ryan Brewer scored about 4-5 different ways. My senior year we went undefeated and were ranked #1 in OH, #6 in the country before we lost in the playoffs in the 2nd round. We played a big game vs Canton McKinley and a couple games in the Crew's stadium. Insane atmospshere!

I actually got tackled at the '05 game! I was wearing a #7 Teddy Ginn jersey with "Ginn" on the back. I was partying with some of their students, and everything went great. I was with a Marine buddy and everyone seemed to love us. Turning point was when we walked to the car to get something and we started getting heckled. I laughed and struck the Heisman pose, right before this student tried to blindside me. Luck for me, my buddy was behind me and pushed me out of the way before I got drilled. I jumped up and went after the kid, as my friend stopped me from stomping him to death. He was scared to death and amazed that I was pissed. Sure if I would've gotten my hands on him, we would've been jumped by a bunch of students, but I was all about it. I'm generally a good person to drink with and party. I'm respectful and know the limits. I guess the Heisman pose wasn't smart, but I was under the impression that everyone was cool... how quickly it changed. The night was terrible. We lost a close game and the fan base is rude!! Mostly it's drunk students, but I even saw older people doing the same. They are different when they lose, but they are sore winners for sure! I saw people get jumped, and hit with all kinds of objects (urine filled condoms, batteries, food/beer, etc...). I put on a jacket over my shirt to avoid harrassment and a fight later that night. It was a great place to party, and beer/liquor is cheap there!! I got a PITCHER of red-headed sluts for $9! I was walking around pouring shots and it was a good party environment for 20 somethings!

I was home on leave from the Marine Corps and went to down to campus all weekend. I can't remember if it was football season, a gameday or not. I brought a buddy home with me to show him "Ohio State". We partied on campus and went to some sub place after everything closed down. We met a very attractive woman there and ate subs with her. She todl us she was a model and was going to an afterparty next door. We told her we were Marines on leave and she told us to come with. I think it was at "The Library" bar, but can't remember. A big bouncer opened the door, and after we told the who we were they let us in. I walked in and to my amazment were several football players and some other people I didn't recognize. I spent the next hour or so sitting at the bar, talking to Lydell Ross.

Personally, I hope he makes it and it will give him all the information to make an "informed" decision whenever he decides to commit. I hate when recruits don't pick us after being heavily recruited and listed in their favs but don't visit. Regardless if he picks us or not, I give him props for making that LONG drive to see our GREAT University. Just the fact that he is considering making the trip shows you we have a good chance, but we'll see.

My wife was DEAD SET on a fall wedding. Our dating anniversary "was" Nov. 29, but I told her there was NO WAY we were getting married on that day. 1) It is typically the weekend of THE GAME, 2) If it isn't THE GAME, then it is now a weekend in which the B1G Championship is on, and 3) It is almost always Deer hunting week in Ohio (even though I live in VA). So, we compromised... we got married on 9/1/13, which was on a Sunday (no NFL games). As the anniversary comes around, "if" it falls on a game day it will almost always be a weak team. If its a BIG game, she knows me and will by me tickets to the game a present and we have 3 day weekend to celebrate/travel. Also, since its at the beginning of the season, OSU tickets are ALWAYS an acceptable gift!!

Side note, our wedding party entered to a remix of the Seven Nation Army song, we gave out AMAZING Buckeye Candies for favors, our wedding colors were Scarlett, White and Black (with hint of Grey). The place we got parried at is called Old House Vineyards and they have a giant "O-H" sign outside that stand for "Old House" that everyone took pictures in front of! Also, we all got together and took over the hotel lobby and big screen TV to watch the OSU game and other games Saturday. Great time!! Go Bucks!!

Question, would anybody be interested in making copies of some of their pics/programs so I can frame them and put them up? The real thing would be great, but the images are awesome! I'd love to have some pics of Coach Paul Brown, Woodie and that program from THE GAME in '68!! I'll pay for the costs, message me if interested. Thanks!!

It's going to be the same as March Madness. Each team and conference will be viewed and taken into consideration. If the scenario you mentioned, I would pick OSU (obviously biased, but trying not to be) to be added into the playoffs UNLESS there were other unbeatens ahead of us. Its the best 4 teams. If OSU loses ONE close game in the B1G Title game to an unbeaten team and we are w/o aa star player... we should be in. The only way we aren't is if there are other unbeatens or teams with a similar situation.

It depends on your style. Cargo shorts aren't "uncool", they just don't go with the "hipster" trend that is popular right now. Cargo shorts are still in, just not cutting edge "fashion" trends. A lot of cargo shorts have designs (plaid, stripes, or cammo). Just my thoughts.

This is the make or break game of the season! I think this will be an epic battle and I know our guys will be pumped up for this game!!

Comment 16 Jul 2014

There are actually a couple people (at least 3 on this thread alone) that live down south of DC along I-95. We should start our own "game watch" location!! A ton of places to meet up!

Comment 16 Jul 2014

I used to go to Rhinos all the time in my 20's. Its too crowded and can be a hot mess sometimes. Like other have said, penn state fans on top floor so, OSU does have the entire bar.

Comment 16 Jul 2014

Nice! I also work on Quantico and live right up the road in Manassas! Baltimore is a great place to drink and do a bar crawl as they have a TON of bars!!!

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I guess I never checked out Nicks stats, 6'3" and 250lbs and that athletic as a Soph?? Kids going to be a stud at the next level from day 1!!

Comment 15 Jul 2014

Have you checked out the OSU Game Watch locations in the DC area? Rhinos, Ri-Ra, etc... There are a TON of OSU fans around here. I live out in NOVA, so they are too far for me to drive. Watch games at home or with friends.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I have a ton of family coming in for the game (14 people). I think we are looking at alternatives to getting up there (possibly train as well) as the parking is an issue.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

I can't even imagine our defense with him!! He has the athletisism and size to beat anybody on the line. He was INJURED and still finsihed 2nd in the SPARQ challenge. He would be a great fit for our system and he wouldn't be pressured to start this year, but could take a lot of snaps. I don't see how you keep him off the field, except if he is injured. Can you imagine him AND Bosa on the same line with the stud LB's we have behind them??  I can only dream, but sounds like Urban and the boys are putting a full court press on him!! VA Tech is a good team, have a good atmosphere but nothing compared to tOSU!! Only reason we lose out to them is b/c they are local, but I thimk they are still a couple of hours away from where he lives.

I would have to agree with most people on here, Fells Point or Inner Harbor are your best bets. As for DC, its about a 60-80 minute drive depending on traffic (BTW, TRAFFIC IS ALWAYS BAD!). I would suggest taking the train from Baltimore to DC and get off at Union Station. Its right downtown and near the mall and all the sights (Hard to find parking in DC at a reasonable rate and the streets are very confusing). I would suggest dedicating a day before or after to DC and enjoy Baltimore on Saturday. There area a TON of bars in Baltimore, just be careful traveling by yourself. You can turn the corner and be in a bad area quickly! I would imagine that Baltimore will be overrun with Buckeye fans as there is a HUGE Buckeye fan base here, its not a bad drive from Ohio and its a holiday weekend. I would highly suggest trying MD crab cakes while you are in MD as there are known for it!
