Comment 24 Mar 2016

An SI article about JC many years ago got me on the World Cup bandwagon, though very small in the US, at that time.  RIP

Comment 07 Feb 2016

Saw a sports talk show a few years back, the guests were Billy Sims, Herschel Walker, Desmond Howard, Bo, and the last one escapes the memory.  When asked who the best was, they all said Bo.

Native Buckeye, been here since 1988, now living about 18 miles sw.  The red haired girl, a native of Long Island, lives in GR and, without fail, after a night out (play, symphony, sporting event), one of us remarks that there are far worse places to live.  Equidistant to the "D" and Windy, plenty of outdoor activities, great family area as well as for singles.  Not sure if they still do, but a Buckeye group used to have a standing reservation at BW3 on game day.  More Bucks here than one might imagine.  Snowfall increases the closer you get to Lake _ichigan.

Chowderheads that ask the cashier a question while you are being waited on.

knuckleheads that are late for a concert, game, etc, needing to get past you for their seat.  Normally evokes a, "did you ask for a watch for your birthday?"

Saw an item on the 12/31 edition of mlive.com with an auburn fan detailing 15 ways to troll a bama inbreed.  Good stuff but nothing like the 11w crew.

Comment 01 Jan 2016

Sparty dodged a few bullets along the way, including a struggle against a good, not great Hawkeyes team.  They took advantage of the mistakes and weakness of others.  Remember, if not for a fumbled snap, The Game would have been for the BIG East title.  If I recall, the Tide had five to's in their loss.  With three weeks prep no way Saban would allow that to happen again.  IMHO the two best teams will be playing for the NC.  A big win against the Irish will still put the Bucks into the top four.

Comment 31 Dec 2015

Beat ND and jump the Sooners and Sparty, still #3.  Pretty good all things considered.  If ND is thoroughly defeated and the NC is a blowout, #2 is a possibility.

Floor mats for the Passat, garden flag, license plate frame, license plate, decal, another hoody.

Comment 04 Jun 2015

Was watching a softball game many years ago when the large gentleman was pointed out and introed as Bevo Francis.  Although not recognized by the ncaa he also scored 100 in a game - twice.  

RIP big fella.

1 -  This is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun made and will blow your head cleeeean off.

2 - What the ichigan is this?  A jelly doughnut!  Or any of several Gunny lines from Full Metal Jacket

3 - Clark W. Griswolds epic rant in Christmas Story.

People's republic of ann arbor.  One of the few places in the world where the wind sucks and does not blow.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

First - those jersey boys, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

Best - ACDC, front row at the Bradley Center

Comment 22 Mar 2015

1971 Nova, 307 ci.  Not only was fuel in the 20-25 cent range, they would actually pump it for you, check the oil, and the tire pressure.  The first job for many of us was at one of the local filling stations, great place to get phone numbers, while learning some of the finer, no longer needed mechanical skills.

Comment 20 Mar 2015

Because I am an old time hockey guy, Tim Horton's is my fave.  Though it really is not good, we do not have White Castle in west xichigan so I generally stop when the opportunity presents itself - just because.

Comment 06 Mar 2015

A born, bred Buckeye, I have lived on Lake Michigan since 1988.  My son in law, from a family of dedicated Italian, American Catholics, and yes, die hard ND fans, introduces me as the man that hates  ann arbor cc more than anyone he knows.  Eviscerate them and their self serving, pious, self aggrandizing minions at every opportunity.

Comment 26 Feb 2015

Sat next to Jerry Tarkanian at a HS all star game, many years ago.  His primary interest was SuperFly Williams.

Was in the men's room at Shooters (Cleveland), Brian Sipe was standing at the next urinal.  We had it out together, so to speak.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Fawlty Towers or George Carlin.  There is a Carlin channel on XM, the other night he did five minutes about frozen peas and I was crying when it was finished - frozen peas, c'mon.

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Anything from Tim Horton's  as long as it includes Timmy's coffee, or Rio Grandes own, Bob Evans.
