  • SPORTS MOMENT: Ted Ginn's punt return for TD against those bastards from Ann Arbor in 2004. I had been down for a few months since the death of my father, followed by a really disappointing football season for the Buckeyes. That glorious win against the scUMmers felt so good. The sun was shining again.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Archie Griffin. Troy Smith is a close second.

Great move. I did the same thing 12 years ago after 10 years in the insanity of northern VA and DC. Other than missing a few friends (one of whom I pounded several beers with here in Cleveland today after he flew in on a business trip) I've never looked back.

Castro district. Wear chaps.

Sorry. Just a sad attempt at humor. 

In a more constructive effort, the Saloon is a very iconic bar. It's been in a few movies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Saloon

Travelling to SF in a few weeks myself. I'm hoping to stay in the Weston St Francis if my expense account affords. A very cool old old hotel (which has also been in a few movies).

I voted this morning for "QB X" before Ramzy's "12 Games to Immortality" went to print. Having now read that, I would change my vote.

Eagle Rare is amazing. It absolutely has to be the knee of the bourbon quality vs price curve. You can pay a lot more but it doesn't get a whole lot better.

DJ needs to learn that whatever NFL team you root for isn't really all that important, especially relative to being a Buckeye. The main purpose of the NFL is to give fat incomes to former Ohio State players,

And Ray Farmer is King of the Clueless.  Drafting 3 DL none of whom are named Michael Bennett.  Although to be fair I expected nothing less than that from someone who thought Johnny Manziel could be a quality NFL QB.

Agree 100%.  And it's actually much easier to keep a simple charcoal grill clean as compared to a gas grill. I switched from gas 10 years ago and I'll never go back.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

I've disagreed somewhat with DJ before but tricking me into clicking a link to a soccer highlight is just wrong.  Dirty pool, DJ.

Any and all movies based on comic book super heroes.  I can detach from reality and pretend with the best of them, but dudes wearing capes and tights with special powers are just stupid. It's not 1947 and I'm not 12 years old.

Unless you live in an extremely remote area, it's very likely a coy-wolf.  They are very common pretty much throughout the continental United States.  Feel free to shoot it assuming you are outside the city limits.

Great stuff, Tennesseebuckeye11.  As a 50 year-old with self-medicated ADD, I can only rarely read through a post that long.  That one was pure pleasure.  Thanks for posting.

Yep. The best pizzas are where you have sweet, hot and spicy flavors together.  There aren't a lot of sweet choices other than pineapple though sometimes onions can be sweet enough.

Tim Spencer.  He might be tempted to come back- you never know.  Ohio State football kind of has a good thing going right now.    

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Why can't they just admit that given the extremely limited number of meaningful games between teams in the power 5 conferences, it is a farce to automatically assume, year in and year out, that the SEC is always the best conference, and its champion always the best team in college football?  In fact, the SEC has exploited this myth by refusing every year to play hardly any meaningful inter-conference games until the bowls.

Is the SEC the best conference most years, at least recently? Probably. But can the national media at least be objective and not give them every possible benefit of the doubt without any tangible evidence?

Those commercials piss me off, because they same horrific CHEESY tune playing in the background of every one.
