To quote from the group 'War': "Why can't we be friends? Why can't we be friends? Why can't we be friends?" etc., etc.

He's been defending Gibbons for well over a year. Sometimes he was a good sounding board for info from enemy territory and, not being the jackwads that infest MGoBlow, most Warriors cut him some slack and even defended him (as did I at times).

I think I may cry, BTALBERT! Love me the good Reverend's bourbon (yes, Elijah Craig was a preacher). Can you tell us how it tastes? How it smells? What color is it? Like I said, I'm getting misty!!

Lou (The Toe) Groza was the insurance/investment advisor for my dad's optometry practice in NW Ohio when I was about 9 or 10. We went out to eat with him at a local restaurant, and he "thumb-wrestled" with me (yes, I still have my thumbs!). Very nice guy. Also a very large man! 

My son met, and got his picture taken with, Iron Mike Tyson at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix about 15 years ago. He, too, was very nice and generous with his time.

DJ's Mom, you need to make more appearances here! We love the "back stories" you provide. Plus, it's pretty cool! 

DJ, I propose you let your mom write a Skully!

Nailed it Bucksfan. Most folks aren't old enough to remember when the Big O played - heck, I was still in grade school when he retired. We remember those we've seen play, so it's not unusual. But Oscar Robertson was MJ & Magic before they were around.

Lol! I was wondering where they found a picture of Flounder with a headset. You're probably correct, Shady! And he's wearing a jacket, too. Ah, Brady, the gift that never stops!

I see what you did there, Earle ("favourite") - well played, sir!

While my musical tastes run more toward harder rock, blues and jazz, Gordon Lightfoot is an amazing lyricist. Certainly "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is his best-known work, but IMHO, "Sundown" is his best song; love the line, "Sometimes I think it's a shame/When I get feelin' better when I'm feelin' no pain..."

Supposed to be on the minus side of 0 most of the nights this week in the Great Lakes region - should take care of any unfrozen part of Lake Erie!

Not sure if it was as true with the Vest's spouse, but Shelley is a bit of a surrogate mom with the team. I believe she even mentioned it in an interview a while back (going by memory - perhaps someone remembers the post).

You know 9Route is on top of it - just wait! (Of course we'll have to see what new user name he/she/it comes up with.)

Comment 10 Feb 2015

So, BYU has their defensive line - what are they going to do with the other 2 or 3 dudes that used to play there?

Comment 09 Feb 2015

Not that I would ever suggest such a thing happening today, but many moons ago when we played against d-bags like that (yes, we wore really short shorts and high socks), it wouldn't be unheard of to undercut said d-bag when he was going up for a rebound or layup. Of course, it would all be totally accidental... But that would usually put a stop to that crap.

Sorry for the double post.

He used to have to sell players like Jalin Marshall on a vision, but now the proof is in the pudding for Ohio State

Mighty tasty pudding!

But this is what makes Urban Frank Meyer the great coach he is - vision, communication, discipline, transparency, authenticity, high expectations, ingenuity, energy, community/family, etc., etc.

... sadly, EVERY fan base has this fringe.

Absolutely spot on, JRB322. Unfortunately, so do we. I'm glad they are a fringe, but one is one too many.

This is a great day for these kids. No matter where they go, most have struggled with the situation for months (some for years!). I was hoping for a Beckner flip - didn't expect it, as Lord of Whispers indicated it most likely wasn't happening - would have been fantastic to get him, nonetheless. But who couldn't be excited, happy and a little emotional as he chose Mizzou with tears streaming down his face?
