I am the lizard king


  • SPORTS MOMENT: I go to the UM game every year. My favorites are a tie: Gonzo's catch in 2005, Wil Allen interception in 2002; seeing Bo and Woody on opposite sidelines in 1978, the singing of Carmen Ohio in Michigan Stadium after JT's first win in 2001; Brian Robiski's end zone catch in 2006; Troy Smith entering the field for his final Michigan game in 06; Evan Turner's shot; Beanie's long TD run in Ann Arbor; Art the Dart dancing into the end zone in 81... there are more....
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Troy Smith, michigan killer
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: Evan Turner, michigan killer
  • NFL TEAM: Bucs and Browns
  • NHL TEAM: Caps
  • NBA TEAM: Cavs and Heat (unlikely combo that it is)
  • MLB TEAM: Rays and Indians
  • SOCCER TEAM: DC United

Real or nothing for me. I used to cut my own every year when the kids were small. Now that they are in college, i go to home depot sometimes.

Trees grow on farms. They are replenished with saplings every year so the circle of life continues. They have a smaller carbon footprint than an artificial tree. They provide jobs and livelihood for people who work on the farms.

It was cold at halftime. Quite warm midway through the 3rd until the end. Ha!

The O-H-I-O chant was louder than ever.  Well-done Buckeyes!!!! They were so beaten down that they didn't really care that we were playing them for fools.  This is a fan base that is totally beaten down. Those 24-years-old or less barely remember watching more than one win in the series.  wow!

They are all living in the past. That's all they have.

Comment 25 Nov 2015

I was sitting in the stands next to one of the former scum players who was out on the field  before The Game   He was giving me shit all day and laughing in my face when they went up 21-12   I was starting to feel like it was over, but instead I looked him in the eye and said "hmmm I think you left us just enough time." And then something magical... he looked at the  clock and shut up. And that's when I knew they were frightened by us. He knew and I knew what was going to happen. Gonzo's  catch was right in front of us. Perfect. The guy's kids -- now in college I guess -- cried next to me  his wife looked like she would rather be coming home with me  I smiled ear to ear  

Go Bucks. Happy memories. Thanks for this.

The most satisfying is always the NEXT one.

As for the past, I have been to The Game 33 times (will 34 this week) and as the clock wound down in 2009 I stood over one of the exits in their stadium cesspool with six fingers raised while the losers filed out below me, flipping me off, tossing things at me, threatening me, etc.  Sixth straight win in the series accomplished in THEIR house.  THAT was satisfying. I love Jim Tressel.

FIRST worry about our opponent. Then worry about other scenarios. Go Bucks. fuck m*chigan.

Glad to revisit the 2001 Game.  I have been to The Game 33 times  (this week will be no. 34) and singing Carmen in THAT  stadium cesspool with the team after that win is my favorite moment. First time we ever did that. The promise fulfilled. We finally had a coach who understood the rivalry. First road win since I was on the field singing Duke of Earl while the team hoisted Bruce in. 87. And all the crap we put up with between those wins.  Yeah, I teared up.

95% of all fans are respectful and the best of those dish and take a lot of verbal abuse. Physical abuse is uncalled for, and these days is not frequent because everyone has a camera, right? When that guy threatened me two years ago, half the fans pulled out their phones to get video of him. Even scUM fans. His girlfriend walked him out of the stands. He was mad at me because I was celebrating big plays and cheering for my team and quite verbal when Dontre was attacked. But I was also talking politely to the 10 year old UM fan and his grandfather in front of me during tv timeouts. (Everything in perspective) That guy just Needed a nap and missed a helluva game (he would have punched me for sure after that missed conversion). 

I love looking at their faces after we beat them down. Joy. 

Comment 24 Nov 2015

Yeah I was at The Game in. 86 and I will be there on Saturday. Earle had a comfortable lead at halftime and then played not to lose in the second half. We see where that leads. 

F harbaugh!!!!!  his fucked-up face sits with Kolesar and Biakabatuka and Woodson and Howard on my Mount Rushmore of hate.

Go Bucks  F m*chigan .

Comment 23 Nov 2015

This will be my 34th Game. 17 times in that cesspool. I hate that place. Once helped an elderly OSU fan (woman) after she was pushed down the stairs by ttun fans. I was 30 rows up when Desmond did his pose. Was out on the   field when Earle was carried off, saw the 2001 promise fulfilled (cried that day); was almost punched 2 years ago and WAS punched and threatened to be thrown off the top in 1981(art the dart's dance into the end zone that day was a thing of beauty). I will be there  I must  getting close to the point where I will have seen 1/3 of them  my goal is to see half before I die.

Go Bucks  My glass is half full.  

I kid. Take heart chuck. It was a bad game that is behind us, and now Gold Pants are on the table. Legacies are made by how you play THIS week in THIS game.  No one is looking ahead or behind. That will help.
