  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

Thanks for the link, that is a pretty funny web site.  I think an even funnier article there was "DOD Recognizes your wife's boyfriend as a dependent".

I. Loved. Hineygate.  I went to the one in 2006 for OSU/TTUN and I heard that was the last good one. 

I also remember "the Library". and what was the name of the downstairs bar, east side of High St, kinda creepy but had really good food?

@Buckeyeupnorth; Same for me, graduated in '84.  I worked for PaPa Joes for over 5 years but mostly at the Lockbourne Rd one.  I'm related to the owners (both are dead). The campus location could get pretty rowdy and my parents would only allow me to work in the kitchen.  I have some funny stories about that place.  They threw one helluva Christmas party, my parents would have flipped out to know what went on at them.

If you were ever in the basement there (would have been an employee)  <cringe>.  I still think it was the creepiest place on earth.  They would have occasional rat problems.  There were rat problems in all those old buildings.

Bought all my college books at Longs, I lived at 105 1/2 14th  and I thought the prices were unholy.  I spent like, $150  a quarter.   The kids these days are getting totally hosed and should get books from Pulitizer (sp?) prize winners given what they want for the books.

I had noticed that since M Man's suspension previously that he has become more passive aggressive and his comment about Birm's writing clearly illustrated that.  It's interesting that  M Man seemingly couldn't fathom how it was an insult.  That in of itself says a lot.  It's like the kid caught stealing who doesn't think he is worthy of being called a thief.  How you see yourself isn't necessarily how the rest of the world sees you.

As a woman and a mother, I cannot say enough how much I appreciate the policies here, particularly on "jiggly parts" (not to mention I am often at work when I'm here) and Ramzy's intolerance of ANYONE defending the likes of Gibbons and Taylor.  To me, Lewan is at least as bad, likely worse and both deserve prison cells where perhaps they'd find out just how despicable rape is.   I have said before, it's disheartening to me as a woman to see the police in Ann Arbor and Tallahassee treat these victims  like they did.  It's downright scary.

Defending Dave Brandon is just plain silly, but I could not possibly care less about that because I am not a TTUN fan so his horrible decisions never had any effect on me other than the frequent comic relief that ensued.

Leaving work early on a Friday.

Taking your dog for a walk.

Bill Murray had some funny moments in this flick but this had to be the funniest.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

It's like Thanksgiving

There will be plenty of turkeys present.

It's like New Year's Day

Except for a change they will be playing, not watching football.

Urban doesn't have a crystal ball, or at least one that predicts the future.  What he gets are frequent medical updates on Brax and JT.  He has a plan all right and he already told us what it will be.  It will be a competition.  Even the players have said this is what they expect.  This is what Urban does, best dude starts.

Sounds like a good plan to me!

Wargor, keep the heat up because it is indeed brutal for late February in O-H land.  We are puzzled by our warm winter here . Not that we like shoveling snow, nope.  I like rain, personally.  Precisely because one doesn't have to shovel it.  Screw the skiers.

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I talk to folks daily in the Boston area.  I tell them all that this winter is so brutal there because God is a Seahawks fan.  As I type this, I just talked to someone in Gulf Shores, Alabama and it's colder there now than here in North Idaho, only a 2 hour drive south of Canada. 

Stay warm, Buckeye nation!

I noticed that too re-watching it this weekend and in fact there were a couple of times it looked like Cardale (!!) waited on them to line up too.
