My best friend's dad went to Ohio State and graduated from it undergrad and from Moritz.  The only reason I'm in Ohio at all is that my mom got a good job in Cincinnati at P&G, and therefore moved there.  They both adopted the Cincy sports teams, especially since my dad worked for the Reds from late 1981 to 1988 (ended up as head ground crew manager, just sold the 4192 home plate for $2500 last year, and my mom was there that day, pregnant with me, so I was "there").  Then my 6th grade teacher made a bet against a TTUN teacher (he's an OSU grad, she's a TSUN grad, and now they're married... ewwwww).  Anyways, this being the 90s, tOSU lost to TTUN, and we were stuck with a Lloyd Carr Cardboard standup in our classroom until the end of the year.  I managed to trip over it in front of the whole class dozens of times, and for that humiliation, I hated TTUN, and grew to be a tOSU fan.  In high school, tOSU was the only school that would give me any scholarship money, therefore I logically chose them over Case Western, which without scholarships would've run me into the hundreds of thousands in student loans.

I'm not honestly sure.  Just heard about it from some people I know that are pursuing their doctorates in other disciplines.

They just want your Hulu experience to be the best.  So that way they can get another $8/ month out of you.

I wish that were true.  My apartment only is allowed Time Warner Internet (by the landlords, who have been paid off by them).  I supposedly get 20 Mbps down/ 3 up, but most of the time it's less than that, and they charge me $67/ month.

While it was immature, why not?  How often do you get to do rabbit ears on the leader of the free world?  It's a harmless prank, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to do it.  That said, he's probably smart to apologize to keep his draft stock high.  Although, if a team freaks out about this, and not about Famous Jameis (sp?) and his Shellfish and Assault allegations, there's something seriously wrong with them.

I think Grant gets picked up as free agent rookie by a 3-4 team.  He can play the run stopper of the two MLBs in that system, which generally means either run blitzing or hitting the running back's lane, instead of trying to cover.

My question is, why do the OSU campus police need an MRAP,? Clearly they need horses and cowboy training instead

Comment 21 Apr 2015

Particularly the Muscle Shoals South Alabama gibberish?  That's a talent right there.

But the Sith just fits Brady/Belichick so much better.  Always two, a master and apprentice, and the source of all evil in the galaxy.

Although I'll give you that the Cowboys definitely shouldn't be the Rebels.  More like Stormtroopers (white home uniforms, am I right?).

And the Giants as Walkers?  That's odd, since Kuat Drive Yards is one of the biggest non-canon shipyards for the Empire.  I'd have them as the Kuat Destroyers.

Gotta love the Ryloth Twileks/ St. Louis Rams one.  Probably the truest adaptation.  Although does anyone else think that the Patriots should be the Coruscant Sith?

Comment 17 Apr 2015

Most of the easter themed ones are my favorites.  The Fantastic Easter Special, with Peter Rabbit, and Margaritaville, with its rather informative take on basic economics, was another one.  I also happen to love Trapped in the Closet, and Scott Tenorman Must Die.

Does anyone else think it's odd that Chewie doesn't have any more gray hairs.  I realize that both Canon and non-canon sources say he's somewhere around 120 years old, but isn't the normal Wookie life expectancy 200?  Shouldn't he start to gray a little?
