Middle school trauma is why I'm a Buckeye fan.  When tOSU lost to TTUN my 6th grade year (1997), my teacher bet a colleague (now his wife, oddly enough), that tOSU would win.  When they unfortunately fell victim to John Cooper's syndrome, yet again, we had to have a cardboard cutout of Lloyd Carr in the front of our classroom for the rest of the year.  I tripped over that cutout in front of the whole class more times than I could count, which led to my hatred of Lloyd Carr and TSUN.

I liked Dalton a lot, though my perspective is skewed because I read the books.  Moore and Brosnan are my least favorites, since they were least like the book Bond, but my favorite Bond movies are 1) Live and Let Die (though they put the dragging over coral scene from that book into  For Your Eyes Only) 2) Goldeneye (probably because I grew up playing that game) 3) Skyfall 4) Casino Royale 5) Goldfinger 6) Thunderball (the underwater sequence is awesome, and a friend and UDT training officer of my grandfather helped shoot that) 7) From Russia with Love 8) The Man with the Golden Gun 9) The Living Daylights, and 10) Tomorrow Never Dies

How many years has Cardale been at OSU now?  2.5, right?  So, assuming saving $200/month, that comes out to a grand total of.... 30 x $200, which is $6000.  Even if he only saved $100 a month, it would still be enough to pay for a sleeve tattoo.  I know people who have gotten them at reputable and high end places, and it's around $1000 for a full sleeve.  This is just a shoulder, not a full sleeve.

Somewhere in the South Atlantic, an island is missing its exiled dictator.  

"They came at us in the same old way..."

According to Oklahoma, everything's up to date in Kansas City.

Durum Grill isn't in Cincy, it's out in Blue Ash, but if you're over that way, it's like a Mediterranean Chipotle (Lebanese and Turkish style, Gyros and other awesomeness).

Electrified seating (except for designated disability areas).  That way when the play is going on, you get shocked to your feet.  Just a little jolt.

Plus I get the moral and morale boost of being able to say F*** You to ESPN whenever I want, not pay them jack for jerks like Mark May, and exercise my right to not listen to any of their pregame or postgame coverage.   Whatever amount I can hurt them pleases me to no end.  It's very calming to think about all the thousands I haven't paid to them the last 5 years.

This is very likely.  My dad and I, and my brother, all have very short Achilles tendons compared to our heights.  My dad detached his at his ankle sliding while playing soccer with us when we were kids (he was only 38 at the time).  My brother and I have to be careful not to slide in any sports we take part in, since the amount of tension that places on our tendons is greater than a lot of other common activities (this is actually what my dad's doctor said for us to avoid to avoid the same injury).  So you could say we really do have Achilles' heels.

That's like Perry's weakness is that he "only has one speed, and is over aggressive."  Isn't that something an NFL caliber DC and LB coach would love to have?

Comment 15 Jul 2015

Mike Brown is literally the reason I'm not a Bengals fan anymore.  He keeps running the team like a dolt, and swindled the heck out of Hamilton County.  My high school prom was in PBS' suite areas, and we had to cough up $5K for renting it that year.  The next year, jerk wanted $8K for the same space, which we all were paying for with the 1% increased sales tax.  I almost want him to try and move the team, then the NFL says, "No, you're a terrible owner, you must sell to someone better."

I was probably 9 and we were out in a bay off the New Jersey coast on my uncles 15 footer.  I caught a nurse shark (about two footer, which is relatively big for a nurse shark), and we put it up in the front part of the boat with some other fish we were taking back to cook for dinner.  I was standing up in between the two front seats in the boat, right where you can go into the bow seating area, and we hit some chop that throws me off my feet.  I got knocked on the head with the glass partition (not all that hard), and basically headbutted the shark, which I guess wasn't quite dead yet, and got a little cut from one of its teeth.  As you can imagine, I freaked the heck out about it, and beat the shark's head into a pulp.

I finally killed my "pet" spider because it decided to hang down at night and bite me.  Not a venomous one, just a wolfie, and I was letting him or her live until it got aggressive, because it took out all the other bugs in my apartment.
