I see my votes when I look at my comments. You don't?
Rule of thumb is you can usually get 3 times your medical.
I wonder if that waiver of liability that you accept every time you buy a ticket will play into their defense of this claim. From a cost of defense perspective and public relations perspective, I suspect they pay the claim, get a release of future liability and close this out. Best type of insurance claim is a closed (and settled) claim.
Class of 91 here. John Blair from 92 is on here too. I went to the game last night for the first time since high school. It's amazing how great Chambers stadium looks and how great the team and the band are. Makes me proud!
Not an Ohio State commit, but I'm really hoping Johnstown knocks out St Clairsville and Brendan Ferns next weekend.
Jim Tressel doesn't practice magic. He's already a damn warlock for how easily he made me forget (or at least heal) the frustration of John Cooper and made our troubles against TSUN disappear.
I was driving on 33 and listening to the game in the 3rd quarter and when entering Marysville I saw two in a row.
I picture that guy Hov posted yesterday grinning ear to ear and you're probably right about him saying that about the punt. His next thought would be feeling bad for the punter who made the mistake.
Michigan's. For me, I saw the Alabama game and it was pretty clear Auburn had a guy back to return the kick if it missed. Alabama could have prepared for it. No one could have foreseen what would happen in the Michigan game. And, it's satisfying any time Michigan loses.
I want to know what Tressel thought and did when he watched the final play in the Michigan game.
They won and are undefeated. They have a really good QB who is Matt Bauman's stepson. The game was in Johnstown but I think Catholic still plays at White field. I haven't been to a game in years since I live in Union County, but it was cool to watch the game and see the kids of former classmates playing.
Hey John, did you watch Johnstown on television Thursday night? They played Newark Catholic.
It's all about meeting expectations. We saw what was done Monday night and expected the team would unleash an offensive assault on the Rainbows' defense that would set all kinds of records. Were our expectations unrealistic? Perhaps. I was a bit disappointed at first but then I just thought of all the times I watched John Cooper's teams lose when they should have won and decided to revise my expectations. Just win baby. That's all they have to do.
Bad managers always get what is coming to them. It might take some time, but eventually they're found out. I've had 15 different managers at the same company, in the same job, since June 2007. One was so bad that I spent $100 buying Graeters ice cream for people in the office the day she was terminated.
My favorite work story is when I worked on a farm in high school. One of the workers was an older man and a longtime friend of the family. He was hauling hog manure and using a Honey Wagon to suck the manure out of the pits. The line kept clogging so he kept reversing the pump on the spreader to unclog the line. If there was ever heavy lifting or a dirty job to be done, he would ask me for help which he did with moving the lines in the manure pit. I went to the bathroom to wash my hands when I hear a loud yell. I walked back to find him covered head to toe in hog manure and the barn, which was supposed to be white, covered with crap up to the peak. Seems the line had become clogged again and he reversed the pump, but it didn't work so he took the hose off, with the pump still reversed and it immediately unclogged and shot manure at him in a high speed and volume. He took his glasses off and kept saying "go ahead and laugh, I'd laugh too if I was you" and then said "go get the power washer". Funniest thing I've ever seen when working. It was before camera phones otherwise I'd have an awesome picture.
Why is it that when I read Jones and Kentucky I instantly think it is just Bassdropper trolling?
Until it's your child and the principal has called you because your child got hit in the face in gym and told the teacher "that fucking hurt". It's not funny after that.
I've told my wife that this is what I've wanted for my birthday every year since we've been married. Will be 15 years this September and I'm still waiting for it to be done.
I know Zeke is so much better, but some of the clips of him remind me of Carlos Snow. I've seen a lot of running backs at Ohio State but Carlos is who comes to mind when I see Zeke run.
Normally I couldn't care a thing about Michigan or its players, but Caris' story is different for me. He comes from a great family and his family, although they don't live there anymore, is well respected in the Johnstown OH area. His Dad was my junior high basketball coach and fun to watch in pickup games. Caris is named after his grandfather who was one of the nicest men you would ever meet. His aunts were tremendous athletes at Johnstown as well.
Caris' father passed away several years ago and I hope he succeeds even if it is at TSUN.
I'd say Hell No, but it might actually be maybe. I had a 2.7 GPA from Johnstown but had a 26 on my ACT. The score alone got me into Ohio State, but it was OSU - Newark and not Main Campus. Had no intention of going to Main Campus from the outset and transferred in my Junior year. So I say maybe unless the branches have the same requirements as Main Campus nowadays.
Branch campus is still the way to go.
I use my situation as a lesson to my children and for anyone who has ever asked me for my advice on college, which actually happens a lot. I was lazy in high school and my GPA reflected it. I was lucky enough to have a good ACT score which saved me. And even with that, I almost blew it. When I started, all Freshmen had to take a class called University College. It was a credit hour I think, and I got a D minus. Really, I almost failed the damn thing my first quarter at Ohio State. Somewhere I have a letter informing me that I was put on academic probation my Sophomore year. Is it boasting to post that I almost failed out of Ohio State? I actually did drop out and delivered furniture for a year, busted my ass to get reinstated to Ohio State and graduated.
So, if you're concerned people are boasting, then move on. This thread wasn't created for people to whip them out and compare against everyone else. A question was asked and people are answering.
How long does it take for that feeling to pass where you're expecting M Man to enter into a thread and write a 500 word diatribe on something not relevant to the actual thread? I know he's been gone for awhile now, but I keep expecting to see that stupid helmet show up in the comments.
This is why I have instructed one of my team members to call my phone externally when certain people come in so I can say I need to get this call and make them leave.
