Ran the Columbus Marathon last year. My first one (and probably last one). My goal was to finish under 3.5 hours and I made it by 6 minutes. It was an incredible experience but I'm not in any hurry to run another one. The amount of training time it took was killer on family/social time. I'm sticking with half marathons and 5/10k's for the foreseeable future.
I like Freakonomics Radio and NPR Planet Money. I listened to Serial as well.
While still a student at OSU and working at the Schott (circa 1998/99) I played 3 on 3 with Lee Greenwood before his concert. I know Lee Greenwood is barely a celebrity but it was still pretty cool. My team consisted of myself, Lee, and another member of his band. We played against 3 of my coworkers, 2 of whom happened to also be my roommates. Two funny things stick out about the game to me:
1. Lee Greenwood doesn't give a F about passing the ball. That dude shoots as soon as he touches it.
2. My roommate set a screen on Greenwood so hard that he hit the floor. We laughed pretty damned hard about that when we got home.
Kid Rock probably has some spare time to throw into this project as well.
There's nothing dirty about free education and bettering your family through financial gain. The dirtiness comes from not being completely honest when selling the kid on coming to OSU.
I don't like it all...it's the worst thing about college footall, imo.
Sounds like Dale is on a mission.
I lived in that area 10 years ago. BWs on Bethel was our main sports bar back then. There's also a Winkin Lizard on Bethel now.
(You may want to change the title of your post to North/Northwest Columbus. The area you describe is not Northeast.)
The Rolling Stones
Mumford and Sons
Which group is the Official 11W group? This is how civil wars start.
I don't know if it's my #1 song but Don McLean's "American Pie" is up there. I need to think a little bit about this to come up with a top 3.
I can't stand the early season schedule of basketball. Almost every game is 97-41. I watched the game against Louisville but haven't seen much of the others.
A lot of good lists here....I would add:
Dogs are the best.
My problem with the 4 team playoff is the built-in flaw in the system....5 conferences and only 4 teams in the playoff. 1 team is going to feel screwed no matter what. And then what about the independents and small conference champions that have a case to be in?
I can't believe someone agreed to pay Andy Dalton to play football. Let alone pay him $115,000,000 to play football. And I'm a Bengal fan...
People who leave voicemails on cell phones. Not necessary.
Edit: My dad is the #1 offender of this. Whenever I miss a call from him I get this voicemail: Psibuck, this is dad. Call me.
The funny thing is....his recruitment isn't over. He hasn't signed anything. These asshats could be tweeting these things to one of their future players. Well done, twitter heroes of Tennessee and Florida, well done.
Double Oaked is good. I plowed through a bottle over the summer fairly quickly. I'm a big fan of regular Woodford, but I can see forking over the extra $ for Double Oaked in the future.
Never had Bulleit 10. I like the regular Bulleit and Bulleit Rye so I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on the 10.
For those just starting out on their bourbon journey, I would recommend sipping on blends or small batches - Woodford, Maker's Mark, Bulleit. The process of tasting many of the small batches will help you determine the qualities you like in a bourbon. With this new knowledge start sampling single barrels.
I'm with you on this one. 42 year-old porn star? I'm good, thanks.
That pace is unbelievable. I ran the marathon yesterday at pace much slower than that....and walking is difficult today. I can't imagine being able to do that.
