I imagine some of that prick-ish, douchebag persona is an act for TV. Unlike Mark May, who I truly believe to just be a dipsh*t.

He's a guy I definitely think could develop into a good player. Just not so sure it will be this season. As far as OL moving over to DL, Farris was the only one that I think could have been in the discussion but I don't think ya move your starting RT over to D to be a backup DT.

Not really expecting anything out of the frosh this season so hopefully Washington, Munger, Hale, Hill and Sprinkle can all stay healthy. There will be certain situations where they slide Bosa "inside" too so that's a factor, even if just a small one.

After a Buckeye tackle, 1932-34, who had a football appropriate name. Current avatar is pretty obvious as to what it represents.

Regarding the "debate" as to what may or may not be "metal", there is a cool documentary series called Metal Evolution from 2011 by Sam Dunn that delves into 11 sub-genres of Metal. He puts together kind of a road map for Metal. It doesn't answer all the questions and probably won't sway any opinions but its a damn interesting series with a lot of interviews. I'm sure some here have seen but I'd suggest it to others who haven't. Pretty sure you can watch all the episodes on

KISS were at their apex when I was only about 9 or 10 so I wasn’t really into them at the time, although I was aware of them because my parents bought Destroyer and Love Gun on 8-track, perhaps at my request or because they thought I liked them. So while I knew some of their music I didn’t really start listening to them in earnest probably until Lick it Up came out, then I went back and started grooving on their older stuff. I was then totally into Animalize and Asylum when they came out, although all those albums after Lick it Up are complete crap to me now. I still rock those original 6 albums when they come up on the shuffle though. Favorite KISS album for me is easily Dressed to Kill, one of my favorite rock albums.  

Just for fun, my top 5 KISS albums - Dressed to Kill, Rock and Roll Over, Destroyer, Love Gun, Kiss

I watch NASCAR when I can and have followed it off and on since I was a kid back when I was a Buddy Baker fan. Other than football, I watch more NASCAR than any other sport out there since I don't watch that much baseball these days. At the same time, I don't watch every lap of every race...I'll check in and watch here and there, sometimes more, sometimes less.

I follow one certain team mostly but pretty much all the guys are likeable guys who I can root for, which appeals to me. If I want my fill of arrogant pricks I can watch the NFL. Personally I prefer Fox coverage because I like their broadcast team better but I do agree that NBC has their coverage all over the dial these days. Never sure which channel its going to be on. And I'm sure NASCAR has changed a lot since the "good old days" but so has football for that matter (and sports in general) so I guess I don't get some of the complaints, but it is what it is.

And my first kid is due that same day. Is it wrong to kinda hope that she doesn't pop until, say, September 9th?

Huh? There are other games that don't involve Ohio State? I had no idea.....
