You chose to note the treadmill with all those "fat massager" machines in the background.  Interesting choice.

It this was state of the art, it must have been the 30s or 40s (not the 60s)

What Benny said works for me.

As a former Buckeye, by definition Bobby was not crazy...he's eccentric.

I will say when you look up "Politically Correct" in the dictionary he ought to be listed as an antonym.

Good luck Mr. Mond.

Not sure I would have chosen "QB Train-Wreck" U if I was him, but as long as the kid's happy I wish him all the best.

Danny had better reconsider his future and move on. Lots of great talent at the QB position.


You better think you're going to be THE MAN if you want to be the man.  That means "iron sharpens iron" and "you gotta compete with the best to be the best." And someone who refers to themselves as "Prototype" definitely has the mindset that they can be THE MAN against real competition.

Besides, advising the kid to move on and deny a life-long dream (you've seen the tat right?) is weak sauce.

I'd like to help ya...but have had 2 shoulder repairs on my right and need one on my left.  Welcome to "headed over the hill"...lol.

The sad news is that no matter how good the surgeon or how much you rehab...those 18 year old shoulders aren't coming back.  The good news is that the older you get, the less you give a damn about combing your hair or painting the ceiling by yourself.

Smile.  As with most things in life, your choices are laugh or cry.

So they paid $2.4mil for the right to draft a guy, pay him more money and send him to Canton?

If true, they probably should have sobered up from the celebration before heading to the draft.

This ain't withdrawal.  We haven't seen bad yet...but it may be coming.  If 11W can't fill the hole nicely before Friday Night Lights, there will be hordes of grown men down at the shoe offering money, liquor and the services their wives to kids for just a hint of where they're gonna commit.  lol

Finally, a DA with some human decency...giving these kids another chance instead of ruining their lives.  Football makes no difference.  I'm sure he'd do exactly the same thing if these guys were just teenage ditch-diggers or gardeners.  And I don't want to hear about payoffs either.  We all know Bama was going to give some deserving DA free season tickets anyway and Bama booster's had always been meaning to support an upstanding buy like this in his next election campaign.  This is pure coincidence.

What's the O/U on sick days taken in Cleveland Monday?

Wish I had the gatorade and asprin concession in the 216 right now.

Congrats to LBJ and all Cavs...and Cleveland fans.

With apologies to the Osborne Brothers.

Rocky Top you'll always be...second-rate to meeee, good ol' Rocky Top...Rocky Top Tennessee!

This is how I did it in '81.  I told them the truth.  I'm a born and bred Ohio boy, have a prized hand-written note from Woody saying "Come to Ohio State" and I'm a Marine Infantryman with a burning desire to be a Buckeye.  If you try to stop me, good luck with that.

That seemed to do the trick.

About the same time they started taking all hits (violence) and even hard collisions out of football.  Since using your arms to hit became penalties, pads were really no longer needed.
