Yes. Make more please....
After watching all those vids....bringing back so many sweet memories....all I can say is "it's good to be a Buckeye".
No politics. No religion. 11W rules.
The actions of a few do not speak for the actions of the many. In the US, or in any country.
Plus the idea of nuking millions of innocents is just downright disgusting
Nice write up Chris.
For the 2002 game I was returning from a week riding at Whistler with my ex, and caught some of the first half at the airport in Chicago, some of the 4th Quarter on the plane to Cleveland, and the field goal to tie in the baggage claim area on an old-timer's transistor radio. Then the beginning of the OT on the mini tv at the taxi stand, and the final plays in the cab to my ex's parents place on a little tv the cabby had on his dash. Not the most ideal, but certainly memorable. My parents, who were in Tempe, rang the house line there almost immediately after the game finished, so we got to bask in the glow together which was cool. I was living in Prague at the time and didn't see many games, but it still felt great to finally have one in my lifetime (71 born)
For this year's game, I woke up at 2 am (living in Germany) and watched in my bedroom with 3 different laptops giving me 3 different feeds (ok ESPN, that was SUPER COOL, especially the coaches room and the uninterrupted feed) while my wife and 2.5 year old daughter slept in the next bedroom. I'm not the quietest guy watching games, and a few times took off the headphones I wore in the first half to to whisper yell "run the damn ball! Give it to Zeke!" Such a great feeling, even though I proceeded then after 4+ hours of viewing to walk to the shower and on to school to teach all day. Sucks teaching on only a few hours of sleep, but man the euphoria from watching every game, every step of the way this year even though I'm so far away, was awesome. These past years are the most games I've watched and been invested in since I graduated and left Columbus in 99, and it so feels like my fandom and dedication have been rewarded. Can't say the same for the Browns.....
Personal aside: did you run in to J. Cherkasly at those Hampton shows?
Not nitpicking, but didn't Mariota throw a pick on the last play of the game? 1 turnover for the Ducks...
Unbreakable. Unstoppable. Undisputed.
Then there's this idiot:

@ESPNRobertSmith take a knee at the end and show class but no class by Meyer. Only hurts the kids.
Sorry Coach, but Oregon could have called time-outs and stopped the clock.
No class? Ha, it's football. Strap it on or hang it up sir.
This. Hand to Zeke and he picks up the first down.
I like pie.
Hopefully just a fracture with minimal ligament damage. Would be a quicker heal.
All the best JT, thanks for the incredible season.
Sad thing is if he had handed the ball off to Elliot, Zeke would have had the first down and JT wouldn't be hurt. Totally gutted...
Get well soon kid, you are a true leader of men and had a wonderful season.
Ok Cardale, you didn't come to play school. It's time to play football.
Nice AC/DC Bag reference Chris.
It was the ghost of Woody knocking that LB around that made him bobble that last "interception"
I too was screaming at the screen. Now I'm sure I'm in the doghouse with my wife...oh well.
Also, you see who missed his block that led to the fumble/interception? Wilson. Typical.
Great 2 year run Bucks. Disappointing end to both seasons.
i was also just a kid of 7, and remember clearly my mom and dad (season ticket holders since 66) both saying Woody was done.
Bring on the playoffs....where stupid fucking polls will mean nothing.
the famous "go for 2" conversion was in the 1968 blowout, not 1961. fwiw.
