Like pretty much every band that has been around for 30+ years, their best days are far behind them. And Diamond Dave is a shadow of a shadow of what he once was. But it might be fun to hear those old VH songs live one last time. I saw the Dave and Sammy tour maybe 15 years ago, and it was pretty righteous at the time.

As far as Sammy goes, I'm not a big fan of his work with VH but they did some good stuff. And, that dude is quite prolific with a pretty impressive and diverse catalogue to his credit. A bit of a vagabond but talented nonetheless.

Very cool. I bought a used bass about 10 years ago with my eye on getting back in it. I, however, am most assuredly not a natural and practice time was just too scant to make much progress.

#22 because that's the first number I was ever given, in t-ball. I liked it, and as I grew up as an OSU fan I also liked Ricardo Volley and Cedric Anderson which helped. And in middle school and HS I was always a RB/WR/DB so it worked.

WAY too many to name here but a few that come to mind immediately are 'Hooked on Metal' by Acid, '20- Buck Spin' and 'Forever My Queen' by Pentagram, and 'Your Number or Your Name' by The Knack.

Ohio State related: Archie Griffin - stood in line behind him to get my parking sticker my freshman year at OSU. I thought it was kinda cool that Archie actually stood in line with everyone when he coulda pulled rank and got it through another method I'm sure. Spoke to him for about 10 minutes. Also, Jim Tressel (at some fundraiser) John Cooper (on a couple different occasions, great guy), Greg Bellisari (was my wife's orthopedist), Mark Stier (sat right behind him at the '97 Rose Bowl).

Musicians:  Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (Cheap Trick) - Saw them at the Newport in 1995 and a dude who worked there told us to go to The Library after the show (the bar, not the place with the books). Cheap Trick was there with me, my friend and maybe 2 other people. Chatted with them and did shots with Rick Nielsen. Was pretty cool. Tony Lewis (The Outfield) - Talked with him for a few minutes after a show about 20 years ago. Trent Reznor - A friend of a friend used to play drums for NIN and we went up to Cleveland to see a show and met Trent briefly afterward. Rick Springfield - Yeah, yeah I know. Met him after a concert in Dublin. Again, yeah I know. Stephen Pearcy - He played a show in my little town about 10 years ago. Met him afterward for a few minutes.

Other: Brigadier General Paul Tibbets - Actually went to his house in Columbus and spent maybe an hour with him, around 1986 I'm guessing. For those who don't know , he piloted the Enola Gay, the aircraft that dropped the big one on Hiroshima. George Takei - ran into him in the Dayton airport. Jerry O'Connell (fat kid in Stand By Me) - random encounter while he was jogging in LA. Comedian Brian Regan - saw him a club with a group of people in Charlotte and he kinda picked up my friends sister afterward. Went back to my friends apartment, and played cards and drank. And I was much funnier than he was lol. He slinked away in shame, taking my friend's sister with him. OK, so maybe he got the last laugh.

Those tweets are a year old, but maybe something has been going on behind the scenes. Never seen this dude's name mentioned before.

Comment 20 Feb 2015

This is what we didn't have early in the process in the 2015 cycle, a class leader. Good to see Walker might be it for 2016.

Comment 15 Feb 2015

Early guess is that Washington and Schutt start inside, with Munger and Hale as the backups. Perhaps Farris could be an option to move back but maybe not likely since it seems he will be challenging to start on the other side of the line. I'm thinking Sprinkle and Hill may be the guys who Coach Meyer has referred to as needing to step it up. Its a shame Dylan Thompson hasn't been able to stay healthy. Out of the freshmen, Landers looks like the guy most likely to get in the mix. At end, there seem to be a lot of options, just not much experience. 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

I'm not aware that Reeves is officially done yet, but I'd think Burroughs would certainly be a candidate. And even though Coombs said all these incoming freshmen are coming in as corners, they aren't all gonna stay there, IMO.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

Take a look at the potential senior class in 2016. With the possible early departures it could be well into single digits.

Comment 04 Feb 2015

Jeremy commented on this last night in the recruiting open thread/mail bag. You should call in and ask Coach Meyer though. Also, I'm sure there is a bowl of Cheerios around that you can piss in today. #wetblanket
