Hi, I have been in a state of suspended animation the last two years and trying to catch up on buckeye news.  So, Luke Fickell has probably been fired by now, right?

More fans who don't watch the NBA (and some college basketball) is because of the constant parade to the line.

Maybe a rule where a particular player, being it the center or the point guard (any player), gets fouled the sixth time and beyond the team also gets possession of the ball.  That way it helps prevent the player from being injured and makes the strategy of hacking the center or fouling a really good offensive player to hope they don't make both (or all three) free throws something to consider.

As someone who suffers from panic attacks that were so severe at one point thought I was going to lose my job, my marriage, my ability to support my family and lived in constant fear, the stories that many have shared here with us resonated with me and I wish everyone in the 11W community all the best and the courage to reach out for help if you need to do so.  Mental health issues are slowly but surely becoming less of a stigma in our society.  In many cases depression and panic / anxiety disorders are due in part to individuals not being able to utilize neurotransmitters, they don't effectively cross the brain - blood barrier.  I hate to take pharmaceuticals but an antidepressant (and it was a year or two of hell finding one that worked) really did help me.  Of course, therapy, a good diet, exercise, getting some sunshine and trying to get as much positive input as possible helps.  Even with all that, I still sometimes feel the monster lurking in the background.

JALIN MARSHALL - great news, thanks for sharing DJ

HEY DJ ... are you excited about the new season of Mr. Robot???  You turned me on to that show, a little dark and disturbing but pretty addictive IMO and very relevant to what is going on these days relative to cyber security and the potential for great harm to come to our financial, power, and political infrastructure with a skilled, targeted hack.

That's a paltry 25 pound dumbbell, of solid gold.

Gold is about $1300 an ounce, I think my math is right on that ...

My friends up in NE Ohio thought I was crazy when I told them after the Cavs were down 1 - 3 not to lose faith they still had a decent shot.  I told them if they won game 5 they were back home where they would probably win, then toss a coin for game 7.

I got a lot of grief from them back when LeBron left Cleveland for Miami and I told them I would still follow and root for LBJ.

This is one of the most incredible sports moments ever, I definitely had some dust in my eyes.

Glad our mascot is taking part in the parade.

Also glad DJ brought the issue up, a forum on the topic was closed down yesterday and a followup comment by me earlier today was deleted.  Apparently if a staff member first brings up a social issue it is then OK to post your thoughts, otherwise overzealous Mods will err on the side of caution.  Understood up to a point, being a moderator is no doubt a difficult and thankless job.  Sometimes social issues do intersect with the sports world though so in my mind you allow respectful posts on the subject or else we just stick our heads in the sand.  Admittedly I do have a bias towards inclusiveness and people coming together ... unless they are fans of TTUN (just kidding ... kind of).

Game seven Sunday as I (by pure luck, and lots of others did too) predicted.  If the Cavs win LeBron has to be in the GOAT discussion, or at least top three all time.  Would be great if Kevin Love had a breakout game, he's way overdue.
