I'm a 1996 graduate of The Ohio State University. I am also a 4th generation alumnus and hope my kids carry on the tradition someday. I was in the North stands when Eddie George fumbled twice on the 1 yard line against Illinois and was a senior when he had redemption with his Heisman year.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching my son, age 8, make a running shoe-string catch at third base to seal a win and the entire rest of the infield jumping in the air to celebrate the catch.
  • NFL TEAM: Bengals - I love lost causes.
  • MLB TEAM: Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: Any team my son plays on.

I'd say pay them. Even if they're unjust tickets, the reality is that if they show up on your driving record or credit report, it will cost you much more in the long run. Employers nowadays run credit reports/background checks and it would be unfortunate to have something like this cause you to miss an opportunity.

I'll ask 305, but this question goes to anyone who can answer it. Since Haskins is signed, is it ok that he is so public about mentioning/recruiting prospects? I'm not an expert by any means and would appreciate someone clarifying what's ok and/or if when it's no longer allowed.

Not related, but the reply-all comment made me chuckle. One of my clients told me a story about how someone in management for a large Pittsburgh based company sent out an email to all employees (tens of thousands) that there would not be raises or bonuses that year. This was about 5-7 years ago. Anyway, someone replied to it about how it sucked and it went to everyone. Then someone replied-all to that and called the first guy out for replying-all. Over the course of hours people went back and forth, replying-all, and eventually clogged the email system and it went down. My client said he thought it was an easy way for the CEO to identify the bottom 10% of the company. Afterwards, apparently the IT department disabled the functionality of reply-all in their system so all recipients had to be manually added each and every time.

When I had my procedure, my wife's best friend made joke after joke about it. She even brought me groceries for recovery including a bag of peas. About a month later, we had her and her husband over for a barbecue. Peas were a side dish and I made sure to remind her of my procedure and ask her if they were salty after she cleaned her plate.

No problem. You may remember the bumper stickers for the Hartford Fair that said "Where in the Hell is Croton?". My family owned Clever Farms in Croton so I know that area well.

Worst: Eddie fumbled twice against Illinois his freshman year.  Best: Eddie went for 314 and chants of Eddie filled the stadium. Redemption.

Can also be how you sleep at night. It tends to be caused by our own habits and body positioning. Once you're aware of the habits, and the pain it causes, first step is correcting him those behaviors.

I changed how I sit at my desk at work and my symptoms improved over a week or two. How I type with resting my arms on the edge of the desk was causing me a lot of problems.

Late to the game but I logged in to reply to this comment. Your comment is probably the worst one I've read on here in a log time. I'm not going to lump you in with all Steelers fans for this comment, but you reflect badly on your fan base. Congrats on only winning since the Bengals gave away the game at the end. May the Steelers get crushed in their next game.

This morning I went outside and my neighbor who is an MSU alum had taken down his MSU flag that's been flying for over a month. I'm curious to see how long the neighbor down the street keeps up his Iowa flag after this.

I think sometimes as a fan you don't want to win the game you shouldn't win if it puts you into a later situation of certain failure or embarrassment. I remember backing into the championship game with LSU and although it was exciting to do so, I kind of thought we had no business being there especially after the debacle the year before. Iowa played nobody and is now getting exposed by an upset Stanford team. Ferentz is getting exactly what he deserves.

Reading the comments, read this one and was really expecting to see a clip of the Bruce Almighty scene with the butt monkey and the gang member.
