Ive been a fan since 1970 so i have a lot to confess:

Never been a fan of the OH - IO thing. And i've never made the OHIO hand signals.

I think Earle Bruce was a mediocre coach and dont understand why he is so revered

I think Herbie is pretty good

I liked Terrell Pryor and thought he said some funny things

I think UM has cool helmets

I like Wisconsin's fight song

I think the whole "scUM" "TTUN" stuff is kind of lame

It never really bothered me when Tress's teams were a little thugish

On the other hand, i think he  suffered a huge ethical breach by failing to report the violations and i think our fan base looks bad when it tries to gloss over it.

Speaking of fan bases--- i concede that ours can hold its own when it comes to being obnoxious - not that we are alone-- UK basketball, UM any sport, PSU, ND are all among the worst.  I just think OSU fans can be just as bad.  

BONUS - confession against the Big Ten:

I could give a shit whether any other Big Ten teams win bowl games.  I certainly dont want to see UM or PSU win any bowl games ever.

I can relate to the meltdown, though not the score (i usually shoot in the low 90s and my best is 85).  Its usually a 43 on the front and 50 on back that pisses me off.

They won the Pinstripe Bowl and received rings -- how cute!

Im going to the show at MSG at the end of the month - definitely looking forward to it. 

Ive been  a fan since 1977 and saw them in '78, '79 and '80 in Columbus (first show at Vets, second two at St Johns Arena).  I took a little break during the synth heavy stuff, which has since grown on me, and caught the last 5 tours or so in NY.   The early shows were amazing -- nearly entire version of 2112 at each show. And the Hemispheres and Permanent Waves shows each featured full versions of Cygnus x-1 and Hemispheres back-to-back.  Really amazing shows.  Back then, seemed like every other person at school was wearing a Rush tour shirt on the day after a show! 

Favorite album? Moving Pictures, Farewell to Kings (All the Worlds A stage is close behind)

Song: Closer to the Heart (live version), Xanadu, 2112 (overture/temples), Red Barchetta, Fly by night

yep, but i think of him as Walter Hagan from Bagger Vance, or the defense attorney in the Insider!

Comment 07 May 2015

While we are waiting, here is some trivia that some may not know-- - the actor who played DDay in Animal House is one of those character actors who is highly recognizable today, as he has been in a ton of movies , tv shows (Bagger Vance, the Insider, Runaway Jury, Cinderella Man, W, Lincoln)

The Bon Scott era was the only version of AC/DC i saw (5x between '78 and '79).  This is how i remember them!

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Thanks. Forgot to mention that one =-- I've played both courses there. Also, wildfire at the JW Marriott.   I like Grayhawk but of all of the courses i've played out there, it seems like i always run into a really slow round there.

In my experience, all you have to do is look the part, but act it.  You don't have to be a pro, or scratch golfer, just don't play slow, respect the course, and know and follow the rules.  After that, you should have fun and probably get invited back.

Totally agree.  Also, its important to play the appropriate tees -- don't play beyond your handicap (e.g., if you are a 25, you have no business playing from the tips).
