Since I'm hoping to make a career change soon, this may be my last year living in Columbus. This may be my last chance to see an entire season of Buckeye football in the Shoe.

  • 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

Just bought a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel two days ago for the first time. SMOOTH!

Loved this one, Johnny:

...the sheer ridiculousness of the University of North Carolina, which I'm not positive is actually a real college anymore and may in fact just be a front for a really misguided cigarette company. 

Nice work.

In Columbus, we are lucky to have choices for our cable provider (unless you live in an apartment complex like DJ). I was surprised to learn that in many cities, there is only one cable option.

DJ, droppin' some serious wisdom on us today!

The Craig James comment was priceless.

And I couldn't agree more with this one:

That's why I'll never attend a high school reunion: I already keep in touch with everybody I care about.

Nice job!

I'm sure you could be of great help to the federal investigation, MMAN. I suggest you go post about your extensive knowledge of the Gibbons situation on the appropriate Justice Department website (and not here).

 I don't carry any of the responsibility Jim Delany has beared

This doesn't sound right to me, but I'm not sure what is right.

"...the responsibility Jim Delany has borne..." ???

If #9 does not have a legitimate claim to be national champion, but #5 may, then why not favor a 6 team playoff instead of 8? I saw this suggestion a lot back when the CFB playoff was first suggested.

For example, you could have #3 vs. #6 in the Orange Bowl and #4 vs. #5 in the Fiesta Bowl. Then a week later you would have #1 vs. Fiesta winner in the Rose Bowl and #2 vs. Orange winner in the Sugar Bowl.  Finally, you would have the Rose winner vs. Sugar winner in the National Championship.

This system preserves the BCS bowl system while also giving the fans the playoff they've been clamoring for.  And let's face it, if you are #7 or lower after the regular season, you don't have much claim on a national championship anyway.

Although it's probably obvious from context, "$58.9 windfall" should be "$58.9 million windfall."

I went to Rolling Acres Mall as a kid (though not frequently).

OK, OK!  I'll watch Breaking Bad already!  Sheesh!

 

 

P.S. Glad you didn't die.
