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.

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.

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

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.

Here are my links for my poster.  One is a .tiff file, good for printing, the other is the Photoshop file.   Enjoy.

I am taking this to my local kinko's to get an 18x24.  I threw this together this afternoon.  Thanks to Walt and all the great work you have done.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

I see where you can get the 2()15 patch and the sugar bowl patch, but where can I get a jersey like the design worn during the game (B1G logo, Block O and Swoosh, with gray sleeves, black numbers on top)?  There are some on the bay but not sure if they are good.

Help!  Can't beleive these are so hard to find 1 week after the game.

I was at the game and thought the music was a whole new thing.  I completely understand that times are changing and the team needs to "Keep up with the Others".  Its a delicate balance.  You need to impress the youth and keep them energized, all the while keeping the "Hearing Aid" crowd pleased.  Lets face facts, most of the people sitting on their hands and being quiet are shelling out thousands of dollars, not just in tickets, to the university and they have helped create what we have now.  So if we get rid of them, think about what OSU loses.  If they are gone, 100,000+ are not in that stadium every game either.

As for the music, my three thoughts were: 1) Was a bit too loud and I have been to about 100 rock concerts.  2) USE A VOLUME SLIDER, instead of just cutting the music off, slide it down.  3) have a deal with the band of who plays at which points during the game.  I realized I hardly heard the band at all.  This makes me mention this...

Think they need to mic up the band and pump it through the PA?  I remember growing up and seeing the ramp entrance and remembering it being very loud.  Seems like I can barely hear the drums now.  Gotta think the south stands can't hear anything.  Wondering if the band needs some PA help.

This is my first post here, but this topic is very charged for me.  I agree with any poster here who says we should ignore them.  It reminds me of when the KKK came to Cincinnati every Christmas to put up their display in Fountain Square.  All kinds of people went down to protest and cause problems, which is what they wanted.  They wanted attention.  Once it became a non-story, they went away.

I say we do the same.  If GD comes to Columbus, make it a better story by having a big party for fans outside of the camera shot, maybe 100 yards away.  Have nobody show up in the shot, but you can tell the party is going.  It specifically states "We don't care about you" and would really cause problems for camera crews filming the show.

You also want to hit ESPiN the hardest, change the channel.  Have a GD boycott.  The Buckeye Nation alone can change the TV ratings easily.  Shop at Lowes instead of Home Depot (if they are still sponsoring them), hit them where it hurts - their wallet. 


That's all.
