Yup, I used to avoid afrin because of the "addiction" thing.  My doc told me to stop being stupid and use it as directed.  Stuff is amazing

I am by no means a fitness guy but I do a little running here and there and the #1 thing that helped me go from run/walking a 5k to running a 5k was to go to a running store and get fitted by people who know what they are doing for running shoes.  Seriously, it was magical.

Second was learning to not heel strike.

Username is a long, stupid story involving my last name and a ridiculously juvenile sense of humor.

Avatar is a PS job of everyone's favorite Civil War general and the first Ohioan to lead his team to absolute victory over the SEC.

Why so much anger towards the team I root for?

See the 1990s and the incredibly ugly helmets your team wears.  Also, Desmond Howard.  Oh, Tom Brady too.

But wouldn't it be nice to have another 10 year war?

No.  What would be nice is if your team lost every game this year and OSU beat them in the toilet bowl 100-0.  THAT would be nice. What would be nice is if UM fans realized they haven't been relevant for nearly 20 years and stopped thinking they are even on the same level that OSU and MSU are.  Your team has no rightful place anywhere near the top of the heap in the B1G anymore, much less all of college football.

I disagree, I at least respected Bo.  I stood at the moment of silence for him during The Game after he died.  

"If 'Bo' is not a winner, I never saw one and I should know. He beat me the last three games we played. We've fought and quarreled for years but we're great friends." [Quoted in The Lantern February 10, 1986.]

"There was plenty to criticize about Woody Hayes. His methods were tough, his temper was, at times, unforgivable. And, unless you knew him or played for him, it is hard to explain why you liked being around the guy. But you didn't just like it, you loved it. He was simply fascinating." [From Bo by "Bo" Schembechler and Mitch Albom.]

I wouldn't piss on Mark May if he was on fire.  I don't even care enough about him to even stop and watch him burn.

I'll second a Fit.  They make look a little weird but they are great cars.  I'm 6' 260 and have plenty of room in my 2012.  Easily fits a family of four.  I drive 80 miles each day to work, have around 100k miles on it now and have had absolutely 0 problems with it.  Mine is a manual and I average around 40-43 mpg on every tank.

Started smoking at age 14.  Stopped at 30 but still dipping.  SO DUMB.

There, but for the grace of god go I.

I did my share of drugs in college and thankfully never got hooked on them (although I don't really think weed and 'shrooms are addictive).  Spent most weekends in a booze-induced haze and shamefully drove when I shouldn't have too many times.

Luckily no one was drug testing me and somehow I never got picked up for PI or DUI.  I hope Noah can get some people around him that are looking out for his best interests and keep him on the straight and narrow.  I can't imagine what an arrogant asshole I would have been at his age if I had his ability.

I was at Pete Rose's #4192.  Dad had guessed at the beginning of the year when he would be close and got tickets for every game that week.  Not the biggest Pete fan in the world but it is cool to say I saw a record that won't be broken for decades...if ever.

Also at Johnny Bench's last game....they grooved him one and he hit a 2 run homer.  The place went insane.

Every OSU vs. scUM game I have ever been to.  The good guys have won each of the 8 or so I've been to.  The greatest one was 2002 for pure buttock clenching heroics.  Last year's moment was when Zeke broke the 44 yarder on 4th and 1.  Just brilliant

I'm a huge Votto fan.

You don't touch an ump. The end.  Votto knows better, heard him on the radio this morning saying he is disappointed in himself because he expects himself to be a better role model.  

"I feel like as a Major League player, I have a responsibility to be a good example for younger players. And making contact with an umpire is unacceptable. During this entire thing, that's the one thing I feel very remorseful for. I think it was something that just crossed the line. Just because I have a verbal disagreement with someone, doesn't make it OK to have physical contact with someone. In all of this, that's the thing I regret the most and I'm not happy about it. As Major League players, we have a responsibility to keep everything. We can push the limits as much as we want but never cross that line."

He'll get suspended and he should be.  He'll also take it like a man.

Nailed it.

Get one of these.  Never get rid of it.  I have 4.  3 are too gross to wear but I do still have them.
