  • SPORTS MOMENT: Standing next to Steve Snapp on the sidelines of 1v2 in the THE GAME when Robiskie caught the go ahead TD right in front of us, 6 feet in front of us. In all of the craziness and celebration, Snapp was so far gone he didn't even realize we scored, added a level of comedy to my excitement i've yet to duplicate

They could uber around fairly easy from VC to Eddies or Hamptons but it would take time with traffic. I may have a tailgate or two that weekend near the Ag building they could stop by.

For me, it isn't about being a buckeye (it helps). Part of my education is in the study of people and I've experienced a lot of the peaks and valleys that get discussed on here and I know the pain and anxiety it can cause. Our words will help but only so much for MDM and others but that's all we can offer. It really tears me up to see anyone struggling with the daily grind of life. Papa 07/10 used to tell me that life ain't easy, if it was, everyone would be great at it.

Also don't listen to any of us on here telling you to take one or the other. We mean well but we don't know your situation in detail and can't offer that kind of advice. Do what makes you first and foremost happy, and secondly what makes you comfortable. It might not make sense to others but this is yours to own and come to terms on. As I said earlier, this is an opportunity to start the rest of the of your life. Whatever you ultimately chose, grab it, run like hell with it, and don't look back.

I just recently negotiated a buy out that went down as a "position elimination". I knew what was coming down the pipes though and it was largely my choice. It doesn't make the anxiety any less though, for all the reasons you mentioned. Even though I initiated my move I felt lost once it was finalized. I'll leave you with this. Your job doesn't define you, it doesn't define your family, and it doesn't define your kids. If for one second you think it does, this is the best possible thing to happen to you. It's going to be hard but take it day by day. That feeling in your chest? Those racing thoughts in your mind? The upset stomach? That's living man!! That is your body waking up that's you getting a fresh opportunity to start the rest of your life. Take it and make the most of it.

I guess we all hate Urban's theatrics then and ESPN covering them? Those speeches were absolutely staged as a lot of the game production is. I found Fleck to be pressing a little too much yesterday but he is a very good young and energetic coach. Much like BG Urban.
