I'll second 'Melt' in Northside.  In Price Hill, hit up Incline Public House.  Amazing view and great food for a good price.  One of my favorite spots.

If you're downtown at the Banks, you have Moerlein Lager House or Yard House, and in OTR, you have Senate (mentioned above), and I've also heard good things about Lachey's.

We made the conversion to an Auction Draft three years ago and haven't looked back.  I would highly recommend this route.  It keeps all of the owners engaged the entire draft, and eliminates the luck associated with draft order.

  • 40-yard dash finisher (I've been looking for one of those stickers that marathon runners put on their cars)

This is speculative, but I wouldn't be surprised if ownership thought retaining Hoyer was unrealistic.  After everything he went through last year, and no real change to the situation with the exception of a change at OC, I wouldn't blame him for seeking a different opportunity.  Instead of trying to re-sign Hoyer, and having him turn them down and missing a chance with McCown, they just went ahead and signed McCown.

I'm not saying I agree with this philosophy, but it felt like a scenario where they would rather take the sure thing, no matter how ugly, home from the bar instead of risking going home alone.

Four years of high school baseball and four years of college baseball.  When we were picking uniforms my freshman year of high school, I was the only freshman on the varsity team, so I had the last pick.  It was between #8 and #5.  Albert Belle wore #8 for the Indians at the time, so that worked for me.

I've seen five home games

  • 2008 versus Ohio University (W 26-14)
  • 2012 versus Illinois (W 52-22)
  • 2013 versus Wisconsin (W 31-24)
  • 2013 versus Penn State (W 63-14)
  • 2014 versus UC (W 50-28)

And two neutral site games (Big Ten Championship games)

  • 2013 versus MSU (L 24-34...#FeedCarlos)
  • 2014 versus Wisconsin (W 59-0)

Combined record of 6-1, outscoring opponents 305 - 136 (43 - 19).

I'm sure the movie is God-awful.  However, if your wife is a fan of the books and eager to see the movie, I see the night still turning out in your favor. 

Good luck.

Did anyone else notice he lost two pounds from the beginning of the article ("Not only is the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder one of the best prospects in the country...") to the end of the article ("The 6-foot-5, 213-pound quarterback is wanted by every major program in the country...")???

I am guessing the toll of the recruiting process is really wearing him thin.

I'll save the PTO, come into work and get paid to do this to my computer while perusing the 11W website.

It was a shame to see his career cut short.  I think he could have been the next Shane Falco. 

Comment 27 Jan 2015

After all these years, I'm still trying to figure out what it is that dude won't do for love.

2002 BCS National Championship Game.  Absolute nail-biter.  Surprise ending.  Total underdog story.  You'd love it.

I heard somebody was passing out Skittles, so I am here to present my resume.

1315 Votes (1308 UV / 7 DV) = .994 UV%

1308 UV / 601 HS = 2.17UV : 1 HS Ratio

There is an 84% chance my math is off.

I literally went through all 523 comments in the original 99% Club thread this morning and dished out 523 UVs, made a post humbly requesting membership to the 99% club, and the post is nowhere to be found.  At least I killed an hour at work this morning. 

Comment 08 Jan 2015

I found this thread this morning, and there is so much positive energy going on in here.  I went through and upvoted all 523 comments, and saw, I believe, six downvotes.  I tried to count the upvotes, but lost tract after the second comment. 

So, I am here to belatedly and humbly request membership to the 99% Club. 

891 votes in total.  884 UV / 7 DV = .992%

I've been down here for almost ten years now.  I started reading his stuff daily because he wrote / writes for SI and I recognized the name.  But, the more I read, the more I grew disinterested in his writing.  The blog is lame. 

I completely lost interest after he lambasted Homer Bailey in 2013, who threw a no-hitter and had a mic thrown in his face literally 30 seconds after the last out, and he dropped the F bomb on live TV.
