Wasn't there controversy after that happened? I thought there was. I haven't screamed for Hoke's head, mainly because I don't care enough to, but perhaps this was just the last straw in many's minds.

What I saw was his forearm down, thus downing the ball, before he made the reach across the line to gain for the first down.

After reading that, it is pretty clear that someone would have to be fired. I'm not a prude, or offended, or anything (i.e., I laugh at dirty jokes around friends)... but to have that in official band literature? My wife, who is not an OSU alumn or even fan, looked at some of those and said it was so unbelievably in poor taste that she honestly can't believe it is real.

I'm fortunate that, living in southern California now, it is usually expected that your wedding is outdoors. Fall and winter are dicey times to hold an outdoor wedding here (after we were engaged, we held a legal ceremony in our living room in December solely to get the tax benefits, and it was storming violently outside). We had our real ceremony on a yacht sailing Newport Harbor in June. Perfect weather. No conflicts. That is the anniversary we celebrate.

Agree completely. I was born in Ohio, raised in Ohio, lived there until I was 24 (then again, from 28-30). Moved around for awhile between states and countries. I have been here for ten years now, and I LOVE living in California. I could see living in a few other states as well, but can't imagine moving back to Ohio. Not that it is a bad state to live in or anything, as the cities are nice and clean, but I am a biologist and trail runner - someone whose life is tied to the outdoors, and I am completely happy here.

I watched every single game that season. I could be wrong, but I seem to recall thinking at the time that Tressel's conservatism was the reason our passing offense sucked so badly, and the reason we came back so many times was that he was forced to open the playbook in our many close games and allow the skill players to do their thing. Regardless, he was a primary architect of what is probably my happiest night as a Buckeye fan.

No bears or wolves. There are mountain lions, but I'm likely to spend my entire life outdoors and never see one. The two biggest dangers to me as a runner on southern California trails are bees and rattlesnakes.

Seattle, you are 100% correct. We did this trip to try to de-stress after two 100 hour workweeks on my part (I own a small consulting firm and we suddenly got insanely busy) and the end of the ACA Insurance registration period (my wife is a Covered California certified insurance agent and the last week was insane for her). Unfortunately, it was kinda stressful with what happened (the article doesn't tell the parts about me being asked to stay on the exposed mountain top with the body for two hours while they failed in their attempts to get me via helicopter and ATV). I'm sure I'll be OK, though. I slept better last night, and ran a few miles for the first time since Saturday today. Feeling a lot better...

Earlier in the day, my wife and I ran for 4 miles up on Palomar. There were quite a few wildflowers in bloom there. Nothing, really, down below. It's been such a dry year that the flowers are pretty sparse...

I can't imagine. I was mostly disturbed by the scene... the pose he was frozen in, as if alive. I'm sure I'll get over it in time. I was debating on asking the Sheriff Department if they would keep me informed on the results of their investigation. I would like to know what happened to him.

I don't know where Culp Valley is. I live in LA. I went with my wife for the weekend to Harrah's Rincon in San Diego County. I don't gamble, so most of my time was spent outdoors exploring the mountains that surround the resort.

Comment 20 Apr 2014

The site was very remote. I doubt many people make it out that far. I did because I'm experienced trail runner who does 20+ mile runs in the mountains every weekend.
