B1G Network had the 2002 game on yesterday. It was so great to see the players again on that team. It was especially sad to see the drive and determination of #13 knowing what was coming for him. Wanted to reach thru the TV, grab him by the throat, and tell him...DO NOT DO STUPID! Man, what could have been.
2 Illinois tix. Game may suck, but nighttime is the right time in the Shoe. Also, beats midday in early September for comfort.
Friend in the Bus got VT, so will see that one too.
Sounds good to me.
I live in Montgomery, Alabama. The hellish no-zone that exists between Tuscaloosa and Auburn, Alabama.
In the run up to the championship, for the first time ever, every tOSU game was televised. Every GD game. So I could have watched every one at home. But I decided to go out to California because, hey, if you are going to miss a game, it might as well be Purdue, right. I was sitting in a hotel room, listening to the non-televised game (there) on internet radio. This is why I drink.
That weekend, I did get to see a new driver at Fontana get his first NASCAR win. Guy named Johnson or something.....dipstick burned out his engine celebrating.
Took awhile but I found it
Awesome...uhhh, just what is all that white stuff.
I love it when people screw up cliches. You mean "tough row to hoe" don't you. Last time I looked, we don't plow roads. But if you are talking rows in cornfields...yup.
"Heuerman has a tough road to plow"
Totally agree. Neil Ave at about the Library has become one big canyon. It was more open and "green" back in the 70s.
Up vote for you sir!
Keep in mind, there are folks like me...disabled. I have difficulty standing (and do it rarely) and can't stand for long periods. I persevere when folks like to stand a lot but appreciate it when they sit.
Perhaps a nice polo...comb your hair, wear some socks....
I always say, "no, I went to the other one..."
I have asked my girlfriend/wife to stay out of the room because when she did, the Bucks scored...
I was kinda meh about Ohio State Football until after I graduated (while I was there, a season pass for students was about $30 )
In 63 years, I have never attended an OSU Basketball game, just don't care
The stadiums dogs aren't as good as they used to be, nor is that brown mustard.
I saw them watering the astroturf one day in about 1972
I really like John Cooper, I was meh with Earl Bruce
I am really tired of Seven Nation Army (especially since we didn't start it)
I am definitely tired of people traveling places and doing the O-H-I-O picture thing. Stop this
I still choke up every freaking time for Le Regimant and Carmen Ohio
Even though I am 63, I still miss Hinnegate, the Danger Brothers, and Big Assed Beers
I infinitely respect the Columbus police for how fast they clear game traffic out
As a Hendrick Motorsports fan, it is good to see some Buckeye representation on one of the teams. For those who think that NASCAR is for rednecks and consists of nothing more than turning left, this is an indication of how competitive NASCAR racing has become. You are trying to shave even a half second off a 14 second pitstop. Physical training and planning make a difference.
Yea, and when Plummer scored, that especially douchey comment by Doucheberger, "he's not a snake, he's a COBRA!". I threw up a little in my mouth at that point.
Second to the 2002 championship game, the final TD in the Rose Bowl where you can actually hear the deflation in Brent Douchebargers voice (who had been promoting Jake the snake all night). It was the type of comeback you pray for.
TP, the prodigal son...
I feel like it is the old Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times".
Yea, I am not sure where the
(I won't call it ethics; there's no ethics in the law)
came from. I have been an attorney for 14 years and I would seriously beg to differ.
I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a full ride scholly for the guy that delivers pizza to the Fickel home.
And while I am at it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curtis_LeMay . Not an OSU athlete but from the 'bus, an OSU grad, and a somewhat accomplished military man. You might say he was responsible for helping Germany and Japan have their own Memorial Day.
Those of us who grew up in Whitehall are well aware of Norton Field, located where Holy Spirit Church now sits. It was near the corner of Yearling and Broad (southeast corner). Norton was one of the great civilian fields of the 20s and 30s. One of its airman, Curtis Lemay, also an OSU grad, flew in army training aircraft there. What spelled the doom of Norton Field was none other than Charles Lindbergh. He was sent out to evaluate Norton Field as Columbus' stop on the first cross county passenger route. Because a portion of the route (because of traditionally bad weather) would require rail travel, Lindbergh determined that the airport needed to be closer to the east west tracks near 5th Ave (there used to be a passenger stop across the street from the old terminal where passengers woul disembark and switch modes of transportation). In later years, Norton Field was a civil field and in or about 1949, was sold to a developer who built houses for returning GIs. That area is still called Norton Field. A simple plaque remains on Broad talking about the field and Fred Norton.
