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

 I have no problem enjoying every single glorious day as a fan of the Undisputed. The season will get here soon enough. 

Comment 29 May 2015

It's a one-street town. Cool in that it is tucked into the mountains and the campus is nice. There are some local shops etc. but no hotels and very few bars. But it will be fun when we get there.   

Comment 28 May 2015

well, we were well aware of what happened in  69 in 96 too.

and the wheels had long since fallen off the hoke wagon last year and still they hung with us for 3 quarters.

never underestimate. never take  for granted. this game is huge.

No argument on that. But winning consistently in THE Game is an incredible feat. I SO want Urban to match that record. 

Comment 27 May 2015

In 2009,  after sitting in a mostly blue section (this was the day of the O-H-I-O chant) and feeling quite bold, I stood over an exit with six fingers up as they filed out. Most were beaten down for so many years they had no response but to shake their heads. A few wanted to kick my ass.  I was ready. I was also 50+ !

F them all.

Tressel on that day was God to me. I don't like comparing or having to choose one over the other, but  until Urban beats them down three times in a row in their stadium, I'll NEVER say I would rather have.... ANYBODY .... Over JT .

I go every year, DJ.  DO IT. Much better to have been there during an OSU win than anywhere else on earth.

Agree 100% on Six Feet. Wrapped up the lives and deaths of every character   Creative and touching. 

And a shout out to  the ending of friday  Night Lights  I wasn't sure they were going to wrap it up-- and then, the pass was caught in another city  another team  another beginning  Clear eyes. full hearts  

I also loved Twin Peaks, Sopranos  and St Elsewhere. Love how the set would shake every once in a while through the final season of St Elsewhere.

 Newhart and the Homicide movie also were good endings.

While Bama is playing Charleston Southern or some such school, Ohio State will be playing MSU. That will be chewed on quite a bit in the media. 

Comment 26 May 2015

It was good when I had it, but I don't crave it and have had better. 

Comment 26 May 2015

Next we have to get DJ to the Shoe this weekend for some  ROLLING STONES! 

Always keep an open mind and a full heart.

Dying for your country is the ultimate sacrifice and the ultimate loss for families, friends and the world at large  

Freedom is never free.

Quarterback and leading Heisman candidate. 

Until someone says differently, my HEAD and my HEART are with Braxton.  He is our leader 

Comment 21 May 2015

Kyle Korver made me think I could play professional basketball.  Because if LBJ was coming at me I would have done that, too.

Go Cavs. Go Bucks. 

Comment 20 May 2015

Saw them in DC on last tour and they played. 2+ hours. Mick sounded great (perfect falsetto on Emotional Rescue) and of course it was great because it is The Rolling Stones. 

Maybe they only played 1.5 hours in Cincy in. 89 because it was Cincy and Cincy ... just isnt worth the effort. I saw them in The Orange Bowl that year and they played for more than 2 hours. One of my favorite concerts. 

Those who have never listened to them should start with Sticky Fingers. Great stuff. 

Who cares how old you LOOK ?  The Stones are ageless !

The A&S department needs to cut administrators. These are the folks with the. 6-figure salaries and 5-figure bonuses who don't do any teaching. They set a budget based on projected revenue from a tuition hike that did not happen. What a joke  

Then they can look at the glossy magazine they send me every quarter and decide if maybe I could read it better if it were just an emailed newsletter (answer: yes and the design is awful) and look at other similar cuts (dinners for incoming students, recruiting trips). Then they can start cutting back in other perks in the department.

Happy to see faculty actually, um TEACHING, but Grad students being the first cuts is such a weak out.

Kid's parents should be under observation for child abuse or something.
