One day a lady met this fellow. Blah blah blah, boom I was born. Go Bucks.

When I first moved to Detroit I had the pleasure of meeting Bary Sanders. It was at a children's play place (called Jeepers) at a mall. My wife and I were there with our sons and it had taken about a half hour to realize I was LITERALLY sitting shoulder to shoulder next to one of the best running backs to ever lace em up. It was a double take/spit take moment when it finally hit me who he was. Baseball cap on and so humble and unassuming. I was too much of a fan boy to form a full sentence but he and my wife sparked up a convo and eventually challenged him to a race through the ball pit LOL. After awhile we introduced our sons to each other and Barry took time to even play with him for a bit. The next season is a season he surprisingly stepped down. Never got a chance to watch him on the field, but I spent an afternoon just spending time with him as one dad to another. Pretty. F*ckin. Cool.

I can't say enough how much of a non prima donna he was. Even when a couple other fan boys passing by started hounding him towards the end. Complete class act.

Need more star athletes like that. Jameis can go eff himself.

Go Bucks.

Freshman year of highs school playing tailback. Ran up the middle. Clothes lined, picked up and piled driven in to the turf WWE style by the biggest man I'd ever seen. It was Big Daddy. I immediately switched from tailback to safety. It was a business decision. I wanted no more parts of that.

And here's a link to a video of the video if the rivalry they played in a loop for like the last 15 minutes of FNL. Again, whoever made these for the stadium will eventually release these for the fans that couldn't make it to enjoy.

I've been checking everyday to see if it's gone up. So far no luck so no link to share. Maybe somebody on staff can use one of their connections :-)

I don't know how many of you were able to make it to Friday night lights but they played a pump up video that was KILLER!!!! Crazy part? NO FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS!! It was footage of coach Mick kicking their arses and how it fueled competition between them. It was like a pump up warriors/gladiator workout with lots of screaming Mick and tires being thrown.

You just have to see it! Trust me. Their will be no walls standing after watching!

but back to this post! Thanks for posting! Can't wait till kick-off!

Thanks for posting this question. I was also curious. Was looking at ticket to take my son to a game this season. Is Stubhub the best way to purchase tickets online?

Comment 27 Jul 2014

Ok...so I've posted on a few other threads that our visit went INCREDIBLY WELL! He's definitely leaning Buckeye. Few more campus visits left but the Honors and Scholars program was more than he expected. And sitting in the Shoe under the lights was an added bonus.

Now he and my wife are interested in trying to go back for the Tech game.

Question for the 11W fam, what's the best way to secure tickets without taking out a 2nd mortgage? Stub Hub?

Comment 26 Jul 2014

Haha! Eating a maple one from there right now as I type. Had to stop there with my son  before we hit the highway back to "this state" 

my son loved his campus visit. Saw Dixon walkin around campus in the AM, Chris Carter in the Union and a guy who confusingly looked a lot like a Tracey Sprinkle playing ball in that big ole rec center.

I was down in the corner watching this big boy put in work. He has a motor and got Big Meech and Mr Bosa to ooh and ah a few times. When i saw him get pulled out and hug Urban i knew it was on. Kid is seriously legit. Welcome big boy!

Keith Byars. Legend. Built like a truck, feet like a dancer and could flat out fly. At Trotwood they called him "baby steps". Most deceptive stride I'd ever seen. 6'1" 240 and ran a 4.5.

Actually that's perfect. Wife loves crispy crust pizza. Whenever we're back in Dayton she HAS to stop at Marion's Pizza. Believe it or not you can't really get thin crispy crust pizza up here in Michigan without going to some pretentious expensive over hyped restaurant. Most places make their pizza "Detroit style" (Look it up, it actually exists). It's just a loaf of friggin bread with pizza sauce and toppings slapped on top.
