To be brutally honest, I've never understood the need to consume alcohol as part of spectating sports. Now, I like good beer, bourbon, and scotch as much as the next person, and when I'm at home relaxing or celebrating with friends (or even watching a game on TV), a tasty beverage may or may not be consumed. But when I'm at a game in person? No, thank you.
Maybe it's the competitive athlete in me, the fact that I spent my first four years in college in the marching band where drinking on football game day was not permitted or rational, or that my grandfather taught me to score baseball games and pay attention to every play. Whatever the reason, when I am at a game I am focused on the game, and alcohol does absolutely nothing to enhance the experience for me.
I'm not really saying that our beloved university should not sell alcohol in the stadium, or that those of you that do enjoy alcohol as part of your game day experience are somehow wrong or inferior or anything else. I guess my question is, do we really want to see thousands more people standing in line waiting to pay for an overpriced (and probably pretty crappy) beer rather than populating the stands and cheering for the Buckeyes?
I was born in Seattle.
My dad joined the Navy when I was 6 years old, and after that we went all over. We lived in Florida (twice), Maryland, California, and a short stint in British Columbia, Canada. I graduated from high school in San Diego, and started college at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. When I dropped out, my sister was living in Cleveland so I moved to live with her in 2009. Then I decided I wanted to come back to school and OSU was the place. Now I'm a Buckeye 'til I die.
Well, it takes a lot of personal reflection and exploration. If you actually follow shamanism of the native tribes, that includes prayer. It reflects who you are and lessons in life that you need to learn.
I think that tattoos can be a great art form of self expression. Obviously going into a tattoo parlor and picking a picture off the wall is not really what I'm talking about. I got my first tattoo last year (I'm a woman, by the way). It's a sea turtle drawn by friend's dad in the Haida style (Pacific Northwest Native American) on my left inner arm right below the elbow. I discovered over a period of time and research that the turtle is my spirit animal, and the tattoo reminds me every day of how far I've come in my journey to self-discovery.
So to each their own, I guess.
Welcome to the fold!
By the way, REAL D&D players don't touch anything after edition 3.5 (only half joking-- I got a ton of shit when I bought the first 4.0 player handbook).
I haven't been able to really get a group together in years, but I'm hoping once I graduate and get settled into a working life I can start one up again.
My favorite character I ever played was a Halfling Druid. I rode around on a War Labrador. It was AWESOME.
Just so you know, Wings Over is really a takeout/delivery place. They have basically no space inside.
But yeah, I'd second Raising Cane's.
Those are some pretty awesome tattoos, though a little over the top for me. I'm not necessarily a fan of tattoos everywhere, but I appreciate the art as an expression of who you are and how your journey through life shapes you. I got my first last summer as a testament to how far I've come from a few years ago when I was lost and depressed and very close to oblivion. It is my daily reminder that I fought through it and came out alive.
Yeah, I'm going to admit here that I don't really like peanut butter and chocolate together. Or peanut butter cookies. So yeah, no Reese's or buckeyes. I can't explain why, but they just don't taste good to me. I have tried many times to convince myself to like them, especially since my mom uses my great-grandma's recipe for buckeyes and everyone who tries them absolutely loves them.
The 2009 version of Star Trek is a GREAT reboot.
The classic version of An Affair to Remember (1957) starring Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant is a remake of Love Affair (1939) starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer.
The Italian Job was a fun remake too.
Also Avatar is a remake of FernGully: The Last Rainforest.
I'm actually really excited for this.
I loved the original Ghostbusters, and I'm really interested in seeing the direction they take with it.
Always forget you were a Griz, DJ. I was a Bobcat before I ended up in Ohio and then came to OSU. Only went to Missoula a few times for Cat/Griz games as a member of the MSU marching band, and once to visit a friend. But I sure do miss the mountains.
Oh, I know. I took some time off and moved around trying to make a living without a college degree. I've got my eye on vet school (obviously), just need some time off to recharge again.
5 blocks from campus (until I graduate in May).
My chili is in the slow cooker already. I'm going to bake some delicious cornbread to go with it, and that will be all I need to enjoy the game.
