Mannies (aka Blondies) is the best option. Especially for a prime time night game against a "marquee" opponent. It will be packed w a very pro buckeye crowd upstairs. I recommend the wings.

Tired of the pounding...

That's what she said.

I love Braxton as much as everyone else but Meyer's quote about the 4th down play is very telling IMO. The ball should have gone to our BEST player, Carlos Hyde.

While in PR in 2010, I watched the Buckeyes lose their only game of the year to Wisconsin at Nono's in Old San Juan (http://www.yelp.com/biz/nonos-san-juan). Miserable memory. Decent dive bar to watch the game but bad luck. The opening kickoff was a sign of things to come that night.

I also remember being in Signapore and Thailand in 2007 and continually hitting refresh on espn.com as the Buckeyes narrowly escaped Xavier and Butler on their way to the final.

Eh, I certainly wouldn't want all noon games but I look forward to the ones in September. Nothing like a good beer buzz early in the morning. Wake up in the AM and don't have to wait all day for game time. Start w a couple bloodys or White Russians at the bar. I love walking out of the bar at 3:30 when the early game is over and squinting due to drunkness in the daylight. Great to be wearing shorts and sunglasses in the still warm weather.

I was in my second year of law school in NYC and was at the original Blondies on the UWS which was an all Big Ten bar back then but always got a large number of Buckeyes for the games. People started dancing on tables and hugging each other when Jenkins caught it. I'll never forget the euphoria. My parents were in town from Ohio and my roommate (a fellow Buckeye) was also with me. To this day, I still go to Blondies (don't call it Mannys) and I've been going there every season since. Some of my best memories (what I can actually remember) and friendships were developed there and it all started with Holy Buckeye.
