Sounds like you had a great time with your daughter. That will be a day you both remember for a long time.

It's also fun being able to share those experiences with friends. I would imagine everyone had a great time.

I highly recommend watching a movie at the Drexel:

The Drexel at night.

From cinematreasures.org:

The Drexel Theatre opened in the 1930’s and remained open until the 1970’s, when it closed.

Jeff Frank bought the Drexel Theatre and opened it as an art house in 1981, and it has remained open since then. It was a single screen theater when Frank bought it but was changed to a triplex in the early 1990’s.

The front section of the original auditorium still remains and still has the original Art Deco style decor. Drexel Theatres also manages the Arena Grand, a nine-plex just opened in downton Columbus. The Drexel Theatre hosts sci-fi and horror marathons every year, sci-fi usually in the spring, horror on Halloween weekend. The 2002 sci-fi marathon was held at the Arena Grand and was a big hit — the best ever.

After taking my kids and the Krenzel doll to COSI it was time to take in a movie. I could think of no better place than the art house I watched Trainspotting in 1996. To make the viewing experience even better this theater allowed my to drink brown bubbly while watching the film.

RBuck,
Surprisingly, Marcus Marek was not selected in the 1983 NLF Draft.

Marek was selected in round 9 of the 1983 USFL by the Boston Breakers. 

The 1983 NFL Draft from The Ohio State Team Guide:
1983 5th Jerome Foster (DE)............................. Houston Oilers
1983 11th Joe Lukens (G)...................................Miami Dolphins
1983 11th Tim Spencer (RB)........................ San Diego Chargers
1983 11th Gary Williams (WR)..................... Cincinnati Bengals

Let me know if there are any errors. As a young child in the early '80s I aspired to get on a box of Wheaties like Chris Spielman. I thought this was the coolest thing ever:

A relative scheduled her wedding for 9-25 (Cincinnati) at 2:00. Will send a gift. Will not attend the wedding.

Another thing to think about for those of you who schedule on a bye week. Your anniversary will forever be during football season. You will be celebrating many anniversaries during Ohio State games in the future.

No to fall weddings

There is nothing better than watching the excitement of a 7-year old and 4-year old on amusement rides. I'm glad both of my kids like roller coasters. My four-year old son can't get enough of the Woodstock Express (Beastie). He wants to ride the Beast and all of the other "big" rides. The kid is fearless.

Nick Goings was two grades below me at my elementary school. I was disappointed when he transferred to Pitt, but things definitely worked out for him:

There was another future Buckeye in Nick's elementary class. You will have to wait a few days for me to share who that was. Needless to say, those two dominated football games at recess.

For some reason I have a hard time believing she didn't know that there were 223 pot plants growing in her basement.

VintonCountyBuck, I like all of the questions, comments and contributions you add to the Countdown. Keep them coming.

I live here, but never go in my basement.

Keith Byars Is The Man, Look for me. I'll be the guy with his wife and two kids in the Snoopy area most of the day. To help you out I'll have an Ohio State hat on. I'm sure you'll be able to find me.

Let me know If there are any errors. 

Thursday's article might be a little late. My wife and I are taking the kids to one of Ohio's great amusement parks. We'll be staying the night at a hotel on Wednesday and I'm not sure I'll be able to post at my usual time. The article might be posted Thursday evening.

DefenceWinsChampionships, This was posted by GeneStarWind on 6-11 in a thread titled Missing Gene by Calgarybuck:

Sorry for not being around, hard to find the time anymore to actually sit on the computer to do anything for that matter. Work has been hectic, I've been stuck working 12-14 hour days and by the time I get home, my son is just about going to bed, so I spend the time I have with him and the wife before I go to bed. I get about 6 hours of sleep a day now and it stinks. I apologize again guys, but I may have to take a hiatus from the quick bits until the situation at work goes back to normal and who knows if that will ever happen, I work for a bunch of dimwits lol. I will keep the offer threads updated as much as I can, but that's about all the time I can give to the site for the time being.

GeneStarWind's last Quck Bits was 6-6.

Hopefully his work situation improves. Like many of you, I like reading his Quick Bits.
