Season ticket holder - this year we're in section 29A. I usually attend about 3 away games, too, but this year my goal is to attend every Buckeye football game.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: When the sousaphone player who dotted the "i" at the beginning of the 2009 USC game looked down, saw the camera man in his way, and did his sousaphone-twirling bow anyway, smacking the crap out of that camera. That dumbass camera man should have known better than get in the way of a man dotting the "i"! http://youtu.be/qwGxDBaNSik

I'm with you, Wargor. Spending money, time, and energy on a non-productive lawn to make my neighbors happy is not part of my American Dream.

Hey DJ, did you mean you are "done" with the Lakers if they don't draft Patient 0?  Because you wrote "down"...

Click the embedded link in the article that says "the Buckeyes were the danger."

Part of me is secretly glad each year when the Buckeye basketball team gets knocked out of March Madness because it means I don't have to pretend to care about the sport of basketball any longer.  (Unfortunately the whole "Cleveland is desperate for a championship" narrative has me sucked in again right now.)

There I said it.  Glad I got that off my chest...

Aesculus Excellentum.  

It cracks me up to think of some poor UM graphics guy trying to conjure sticks to throw at the Batmobile as it rolls down the street with thrusters blasting.

Was surprised to read that (#5) banners and signs are not permitted in Ohio Stadium.  (Seems like Buckeye Man is always holding one.)

Then I was surprised (again?) to read (#21) that signs are not permitted.  ??  I guess they really don't want you to bring signs.

Loved your kid's video, Badge!  He definitely has some skills!  I liked how he played around with the idea of stopping the video when the music stopped.  He should keep working on that, cuz he's on to something there.

Only thing I would change: "Sivler" should be "Silver."  (Sorry, it's the teacher in me.)  <Bosa shrug>

I LOVE that video of Steve Miller's interception!  It includes only the bare minimum of commentary (Paul Keels, of course), and the camera stays on Miller to show the team celebration on the sideline.

Orel Hershiser and Brutus Buckeye have the same taste in shirts.

Comment 05 Apr 2015

I do not see any volume control anywhere on the youtube playback.  I've tapped everywhere and it doesn't show up.

Here's something else that's funny: if I go directly to YouTube (rather than staying on 11W), I can hear the sound but I get a black screen for video!  How's that for f-ed up?

Comment 04 Apr 2015

Anyone know why I can never hear any sound from the embedded YouTube videos here at 11W on my Kindle Fire HD?  (And yes, the volume is turned up on the device.)  Is there some setting I need to change?  Anyone else experience this problem?
