So Graham Rahal is taking some twitter hate for his 85 Yards T-Shirt Tweet before heading to Alabama for the Indycar race.  People are looking to him for in depth answers.

2012.  New cars and engines.  Racing has been spectacular.  Catch Indy.  You won't be disappointed.  Tons of great stuff on youtube.

Comment 23 Apr 2015

The new Indycars are back to Turbo's.  Much quieter now.

On a side note, found this.  Happened a few years ago:  Rahal takes Jim Tressel for a two seater ride.

I love Indycar.  They are racing Sunday in Birmingham.  Now that I finished rewatching every game from the past OSU season last night (my own spring practice) I can start getting ready for my favorite month, May in Indianapolis!  I like how the Indycar schedule ends labor day weekend, so final race, then roll right into OSU football, my favorite season.

I treat the sports differently.  Football is more where I care.  I do cheer for the B1G out of conf. so it helps get the Bucks where I want them to be.  As we saw this year, we got in, and at that time, I really don't care because we were where I wanted to be.  I feel like I use the other B1G teams to help use get where we want to be.  I only hate a team if they cost us in a negative way.  I hated Illinois in 2007 but two weeks later did not care about that game at all, because the top prize was back in reach.  I hated VT this year until that loss did not matter.  I believe Wisconsin winning v Auburn helped Ohio State in some way, so therefore, thanks. I hate you and will use you, but thanks for the mental help.  Wisc and MSU winning will help Ohio State, so therefore I cheer.

As for hoops, I have a totally separate hate list and feel no other teams can help Ohio State.  If we win, regardless, we are in and no other team really factors in.

Wonder if this is not an issue if it were a few weeks later.  Celebrating a championship so close to UK losing.  I live here and the pie is really split up here as to team fandom.  I guess when you title this night special since it is "Opening Night", then maybe the focus should be Reds only.  Having OSU there is no different than any other promo to get people in the seats.  I would have moved this to another night and have the band do script!

The other point, this is from WLW,  Its the fox news of radio.  Total clowns.

I hate Buffalo Wild Wings now.  Lose the commercials and go back to the way it was - BW3!!  RIP 7 E. Woodruff.

They'll get punished, complain about it for a year or two, then have all punishment taken away.  Like it never happened until the next time.

Comment 17 Mar 2015

then swearing to never trust anyone from Cinci about food ever again

I disagree with your Skyline opinion but Cincinnati people do love LaRosa's pizza - STRAIGHT CARDBOARD!!!  Worst Pizza ever.  Graeters is good, Montgomery Inn ribs are fantastic.    

OK, maybe 50-50.

Any comic book movie or Lord of the Rings.  Could never grab the hype and have never watched any of them.  Pretty much any fantasy movie gets an immediate pass by from me.

I have to completely disagree with DJ and side with Urban on this and since he just brought us a championship I feel better in saying this, Skyline is awesome.  No need to discuss whats in it, cause if you did that then do the same with everywhere else.  Point is, sometimes it just hits the spot.

Comment 11 Mar 2015

ESPN doesn't have the nascar contract anymore, so their auto racing people need to find other areas of work.

Comment 06 Mar 2015

My belief is that the committee's role is to "break the tie" so to speak.  The losses during the year weed out the competition and last year it really did come down to 2 choices, and that is where the committee made their choice.  The debate was never FSU, Oregon and Alabama getting in, it was the 4th team.  You need a resume to break the tie and we did.

Great memories and alot of first times:  

First Bar ever went into - Papa Joe's (I Believe it was called) Next to Mags.

First record ever purchased at Magnolia's - Used to ride my bike from the burbs to hit all the record stores.

First wing ever eaten from 7 E. Woodruff - Remember not paying attention to the 1993 ttun game while eating wings there because I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend that night.  Later when I didn't eat my dinner she reached across the table and told me, "Don't worry, its just a game"  She did not know what I had in my pocket.  (BTW:  She is the same one, 18 years of marriage later, who sat on a hard wooden kitchen table and did not move from it for the last three football games.  She gets it)  Also beat Bobby Hoying in trivia there back in '96.

First ever arcade I went into was next to the Library (I noted above that I can't remember if it was Touchdown or Time Out)

I worked at the kinko's for a short period of time.

Loved old High Street

Comment 02 Mar 2015

Those were great times, going tot he arcades on High Street.  There was the Flamingo, used to be one under the burger king at Lane/High and then one next to the Library.  There is still debate in my family.  Was that arcade next to The Library called Touchdown or Time Out?  I scratch built my own arcade and called it Time Out in memory of that, but I may have the name wrong.....

Normally I watch games in the basement on the big tv.  This game I tried something different.  I watched, WITH MY WIFE on the living room tv sitting in the kitchen, on hard wood chairs.  All I can really remember aside from the game is my wife saying, "what is going on here?", "can I get a cushion for this chair?" (Answer was no) and showing her a tweet from Elika that stated, "Everyone return to you where you were for the first half, thanks the management".  I told her it I wasn't the only one.  We sat in the same seats Jan 1st and Jan 12th.
