Bench him. His accomplishments on the field don't give him the right to air dirty laundry to the press. I agree with what he said but you take this up in team meetings, not the public. Time for Zeke to be parked.

I must be one of the lucky ones. My wife watches football even if I'm NOT in the room. She likes it as much or more than me!

Leaving Cbus early Saturday morning and heading to WV to visit my son for the weekend. He turned 35 yesterday and we've got a birthday celebration planned with some of the family still in the area I grew up in.

Chuck Ealy, Toledo University in the early 1970's went undefeated for three years as a starter. Undefeated in high school in Portsmouth, Ohio as well. I lived in Toledo then, And loved watching him play.

My son and I had a great trip. Drew's friend took us down on the field during warm ups. We got a tour of the facilities including their new weight room, position rooms and met some of the cheerleaders. Got introduced to quite a few folks involved with Indiana football. Didn't have a problem with any of the Hoosier faithful. To be honest, the most obnoxious person we ran into was a drunk Buckeye fan on the shuttle from the parking lot.

You have my sympathies. I'm facing a similar situation. My wife's health issues complicate things quite a bit though. Package we're being offered is two weeks for every year of service and I can take my retirement insurance with me.  I have 40 years with the company  so the money will be decent but Mrs. Rbesr will eat a ton of it up quickly. I just hit 61 and mama is several years younger. If I opt out of the buyout and try to stay I lose the package and it becomes a simple layoff if it's deemed I should leave.

I was one that had problems after a short period of time. When it worked it was great but I ended up going back to Win7. I'll wait until I need to update my computer before I go back to 10. By then the bugs will fixed.

Test drove one when looking for a new vehicle for the wife. NOT impressed. 

Comment 18 May 2015

I've done Rolling Thunder 4 times. Was planning on going again this year but my grandson's 1st birthday party is taking priority.

Comment 18 May 2015

Took my wife to the Kahiki the first time she came to Columbus (1988) when we started dating. She never wanted to go anywhere else for special occasions after that. We both still miss the place.

Eating at Woolworth's was always a treat. Mom used to take us kids there.

GD Ritzys is still operating in Huntington, WV. About a block away or so is an original Frostop Restaurant. Used to eat a lot at one in Oregon Ohio when I was a kid.

Comment 25 Apr 2015

Born in WV, moved to Toledo when I was 10. Mom passed while in my teens and ended up back in WV until job transfer moved me  to Columbus in '87. Been here ever since and have no plans to leave. Put a son through OSU. Been a Buckeye fan ever since we first set up home in Ohio.

The Motor Company doesn't own the market for wannabee badasses. All brands have idiots the own them. Harleys are also no longer priced out of the market. Check out comparable offerings from Japan and Europe. They're all priced at the top of the range.

"I was always afraid when we had to ride on the roads. Most motorists at that time had little respect for bikers."

Things haven't changed much, Jugdish.

I get a steady diet of UK from my kid brother. He and my sister lived in Kentucky for a number of years and baby bro is a lifetime fan. He DID celebrate long and loud when the Scarlet and Gray knocked off Bama and then Oregon, though. He even wears a couple of the current National Championship shirts, by choice. My preference would be an all B1G final but that may wishing for too much. It would be kinda cool for my favorite team to take the football natty and his favorite to win in hoops.

I've been riding since 1966, legally on the street since '70. In my almost 50 years of riding I've gone the loud pipes cruiser, crotch rocket, motocross, hill climbing, alcohol drag bike, adventure touring and the long distance barcalounger routes. I've enjoyed them all. Currently in the toy box sits a Yamaha Royal Star Venture(full dress tourer), Yamaha FZ6(naked upright) and a Kawasaki ZX6R 636(crotch rocket). Shoot, there's even a moped in the toy box, too.

Several riders here have posted some good information from a rider's viewpoint. IMO, many non-riders have a negative attitude for those of us that ride based on the irresponsible actions of squids acting out on public roadways and the 1%'er wannabee badasses with their shiny leather and day old facial growth. The vast majority of us don't act like that, though, but are lumped into the same category as the idiots that do. Some of their actions I understand and others completely befuddle me. Trust me, other riders get just as pissed off at their irresponsibility as you non-riders do. They give us a bad name.   

FWIW, leathers went away many years ago. I decided I didn't want to dress like The Village People. And Brutus, I wave to scooters too.

A 1990 Buick Regal GS, my wife's car. She wouldn't look at a car with a foreign name so we bought the highest rated American car built at the time. Beautiful car, ran like a raped ape, handled great and spent about half the time we owned it in the shop. Had the tranny repaired a total of seven times before GM would put a new transaxle in (7500 miles), rear brakes were a crappy design and every now and then would get hot enough to catch the seals on fire and the coup de gras was the wiring harness than was stretched too tightly coming through the firewall. It wore a bare spot in a couple of the wires and under acceleration the bare wires would ground against the firewall and the car would lose power. Release the gas pedal and it would regain power. Every gauge was replaced by 10,000 miles. Computer was acting up when we traded the sucker off.  Without a doubt the biggest POS I've ever owned. Unloaded it with only 30,000 miles on it. Driven Toyota and Honda ever since.
