And here I thought you were just using Tyvis's middle name. Having no idea what it actually is Lee seemed to fit the bill.

First script Ohio in DNA and now genetically mutated players. OSU labs do amazing work to be sure!

compared to Marion, Vandalia is like staying at the Ritz.

Thompson jumped out of the damn gym for that board too.

With how the line improved from the start of last season to the end and the overall line product we've had while Warriner has been in charge of it I have no idea how anyone could even fathom saying Warriner is garbage. The dude orchestrated the turn around of the way the line had been player for years. He helped change what was damn near embarrassing into a point of pride.

I can understand the fire Fickle/Matta crap, I didn't/don't agree, but I get it. Hell I can even understand the Herman hating after the VT game last season. I also realize that the o-line was a major factor in that loss, but take in the progression throughout the season and the performance versus the upper echelon opponents and it's neigh impossible not to give the man his due.

Garbage doesn't produce such results and anyone who says as much needs their fan card pulled.

Just skip the first half or you might find yourself falling deeper for a while even knowing the outcome.

Bass, I too struggle with depression and have for the past 19 years. Like you, I spent quite a bit of that time period in a stoned haze until I was about 25-26 at which time I stopped almost completely. About once a year or so I would occasionally imbibe with friends, but other than that I stepped away from Mary Jane. To be honest it didn't make a difference in how I dealt with depression other than I became more aggressive and quick to anger. This change lead my wife to strongly suggest I see a doc and see if medications were something I should be on or if there were other potential options for me. I was very adamant about not wanting to go on prozac or any of that type of drug and having to rely on it the rest of my life, but one day I gave in and went to the Dr. 

Other than medication there are a multitude of treatment options. One of the best for me was to exercise rather than be a couch potato, playing video games and watching tv all day. I got into a kick boxing class and the ability to literally beat the stuffing out of something for an hour a day is very soothing. Yoga and meditation are two other relaxing activities I have taken up, both of which greatly aid in refocusing my mind and allowing me to maintain control over my emotions/mood. The biggest factor that I have noticed is making sure that I get plenty of sleep. If I am at all tired I am very susceptible to falling into the pit of despair.

Unfortunately for me all of that wasn't quite enough to fully get me to where I needed to be mentally during the winter months so I am now on a low dose of prozac.

There are other options out there such as behavioral therapy, or simply talking with a therapist. It is hard to go it alone in this world, luckily you don't have to. Reaching out, even in such a way as this, is a great start, but you won't get anywhere until you put your feet on the ground and do something about it.

Best of luck in dealing with your situation and if I can be of any help to you let me know.

If I could dv for a disagreement I would hit this hard. Guinness is dinner in a pint. Better than 95% of the swill produced here in the states. I will say though that it is 20x better at the distillery in Dublin than it is here in the states.

I haven't tried the Guinness Blonde yet, but I have a feeling it could be dyed. I mean it's not a true Guinness by traditional standards, but branding counts for something I suppose.

I wore #24 in baseball because it was the day of my birth and my favorite baseball player of all time Ken Griffey Jr.(who if I'm not mistaken wore it due to Ricky Henderson's who was his favorite player) .

In football I wore 75(Pace) until my soph year at which time on of the sr's  decided he had to have it. The coaches gave me 57 w/o even asking which was what I was going to ask for anyway...  Funny part of the story that they had printed up the programs with my name and 75 listed by it and the Sr by 57 so whenever the sr got a sack they would announce my name over the PA...

I had to Google it to be sure it was the series I thought it was, but I absolutely loved Tour of Duty, but I was all of 6 or 7 when it was on and until you posted the name I could never figure out what it was called. I had asked my dad repeatedly what that Vietnam War show we used to watch that had Paint it Black in the intro was called, but he couldn't remember either. Thank you for posting that it's been one of those things that would bug the shit out of me every now and then.

It's first sorted by losses, secondly sorted by %'s and lastly sorted alphabetical by first name. It was pretty much the only way that would allow you to list Crean at the bottom of the results and lend even more credit to the article. Perhaps I'm a bit over analytical, but to me it makes perfect sense.

As a browns fan I would not wish the misery of playing in Cleveland on one of my beloved Buckeyes. At least in Pittsburgh (and this makes me sick to say...) there is a chance of making the playoffs/Superbowl.
