There was also a restaurant on Olentangy River Road near downtown called La Bota. Spiral staircase, restaurant was downstairs. Great Mexican. Closed in the early to late 80s maybe? BTW, it is not the same as La Bamba....

Ditto on the Kahiki.

I also question theOSU's numbers. Unless I am missing something, I see nothing  that accounts for tickets sold to ALUMNI. We are allowed to purchase two tickets to one game per year. I see numbers for public, faculty/staff, and students. I don't think we qualify under any of those labels, and we definitely aren't comped tickets.

Oh, and Muck Fishigan....Go Bucks

Ok folks, maybe I can head this off. Let's try this:

Dr, James Andrews
Born    September 1942 (age 72)
Homer, Louisiana
Residence    Mountain Brook, Alabama (Birmingham)
Nationality    American
Education    Louisiana State University
Tulane Medical School
Occupation    Orthopedic surgeon
Known for    Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center
American Sports Medicine Institute
Alabama Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center
 

Further, the WikiPedia entry says, among Dr. Andrewws patients are ....Braxton Miller....

Andrews is well known for performing orthopedic surgery on high-profile athletes from a wide array of sports and was the subject of an ESPN.com article that praised his talents and listed some of his notable clients. One excerpt from the magazine stated that "[Andrews] is the alpha doc at the center of a sports-medicine network that extends well beyond doctors. Every athletic trainer, physical therapist, strength-and-conditioning coach in the land seems to have Andrews' cell phone number".[4]

In June of 1969, 1.89 GPA (lower third of my class, loved school, hated work), a resident of Ohio. Met with my guidance counselor who said I had little chance of completing college. Spun my wheels from June through July. Thought, "what the hell", so I applied. Got my acceptance letter in August. Tuition was $210- $220 range, books about $50.00. Academic probation fall quarter, on the brink winter quarter. Campus riots (and closing the school for a few weeks) gave us all a pass on some of our grades so I was able to recover from the "brink". Graduated with a 2.72ish.

I now have a Masters Degree (3.75 GPA), Juris Doctor (3.89), and managed to successfully complete one of the military's most intense and difficult programs (pilot training, distinguished grad, academic and leadership awards AND navigator training). Retired from the USAF as a Lieutenant Colonel.

Moral of the story? High school guidance counselors are idiots (or at least mine was). 1) We all don't grow (physically or mentally) at the same rate; 2)  Some kids just need the chance; 3) Higher education needs to be affordable (the student loan industry is like borrowing from the Mafia, in my best Ray Liotta voice, "F you pay me"). I was a big fan of Gorden Gee but, under his watch, tOSU became less available and affordable. If Drake does anything (and it looks like he will), he will remedy both of those issues.

Thin mints, frozen, right from the freezer

Our law firm switched over in  the past six months. The Google Drive is nice, especially with three attorneys and a para working on documents from the office, home, and some days in court. Only problem we have had is syncing the latest version of a document. It can sometimes take a bit. Once, it was as much as 20 min. It is nice to not worry about backups, especially when you are working with leal documents and records. I feel a bit better about paperless now.

Mail is mail. I miss some of the features of Outlook.

We use a separate calendaring billing program (Clio) that syncs well with the calendar app.  We use the separate program because of its legal billing capabilities.

Contacts, no complaints.

All told,  it is cheap, easy to use, and accessible anywhere. Best is that you are doing all through a web browser, not a stand-alone or server program.

In defense of some of the young whipper snappers, there was a time that you could work to pay fees and books and graduate in 4-5 years (Fees in 1969, $200/per quarter, books, usually $75). Also, learned to fly at Don Scott (OSU Field) for $600.00 (ground school was scheduled as a class two times a week so included with full-time tuition). 

Of course, that meant that if you weren't going to school, you were working. I am afraid that that time is over, and not for a good reason.

Irritable Bowel Syndrom Trifecta of Death - Meals at Skyline, White Castle, and Taco Bell, all on the same day. Just the gas alone will keep the coyotes away....

Your proposed exit was fun but that Buckeye Lake report in the C'bus Dispatch hit me like a ton of bricks. Most of us old codgers grew up with that lake, fishing there, boating.

I remember having a bad day in 1971; I mean a really bad day (fired from my job). My Dad didn't say a thing. He grabbed our fishing gear, threw it in the car, we got in, drove to BL, sat there and fished for four hours. Nothing was said. I might add, no fish were caught. Best therapy in the world.

Wife's family is from Millersport too. It is more than just a lake.

Ramzy...you magnificent bastard! Ok, next time, what about tOSU's all-time saves? Kenny G against Purdue. Cardale Jones B1G, Sugar Bowl, NC Win. Maurice Clarett, NC steal. Michael Jenkins, catching the Holy Buckeye. Anthony Gonzales, catch versus Michigan...etc.

Four-star cook, I can generally make a great meal with whatever is in the fridge.

I work remote controls like a Boss.

I find shit on the web that no one seems to be able to find.

Can do all my own laundry and house cleaning.

Why is this starting to sound like an eharmony post?
