Congratulations! Enjoy the day, remember to stay friends and always be honest with each other. Marriage is work but like all things, you get out of it what you put into it.

Wait, what?

Someone working for a company that may make some mistakes and generally irritate a fan base (or at times, actively troll a fan base, looking at you Mark May) is not an excuse to treat a person in this manor. The 2%ers in most every group make us all look bad. Basic life rule, don't be an asshole.

Browns coach yelling at his team, presumably for being terrible? Checks out. Thank God for Saturdays....

Thank you for the great write up Kyle! I agree that JT is the guy. It's understandable we are all mesmerized with what Cardale brings to the table, the huge arm, running over defensive players, the cool demeanor in the pocket. However,IMO JT has everything Urban wants. He's accurate, he's an effective to good runner, he's a master on the read option, and he's a leader on and off the field. I think JT will start and be the main guy but both will play. May the best man win!

Sad to see Ross go, Godspeed good sir. As for 11W I'm excited to see what Kyle has in store for us next!

Sadly the Buckeye Corner is no longer an Ohio company. The owners sold to the hat retailer Lids, based out of Indianapolis, about four years ago. Lids is a subsidiary of  the public retail company Genesco (NYSE: GCO). I know all of this because my wife worked for the BC for 5ish years, working her way up from store associate to store management and into their cooperate office as a project manager. About four and a half years ago all of their cooperate office employees (except two) and distribution center employees were laid off with very little notice from the owners of the company, although there were rumors swirling around the office for months and months before anyone was officially told anything about losing their jobs. I can tell you the 1st and 2nd quarter of 2011 there was virtually no work going on in their offices, a lot of the employees were spending their work days looking for new jobs. The ownership let their employees swing in the wind for months while rumors of the sale of the company grew and grew. The CEO (who was also part of the ownership group who sold to Lids) was retained in some capacity, which I would imagine was part of the negotiation of the sale (I don't know this for a fact, just speculation). He retained one other employee, who happened to be his family (sister-in-law I think, I can't remember exactly). They did keep the in store managers on after the sale was final. In the end it ended up being a blessing in disguise for my wife as she has a much better job with a much better company now. But at the time, her being unemployed sucked.

Yessir! All of the Wright Bros work, with the one exception of the actual 1st powered flight, was done in Ohio in a place near Dayton called Huffman Prairie. This includes many test flights honing their skills as pilots.
