I saw WIlco maybe 4-5 years ago at the LC and mid-song Tweedy stops and ask a couple to stop dancing a particular way.. It was "distracting."  I was pretty shocked.. I can get down with Wilco, but Tweedy's impertinence can be tiresome.

Saw Ryan Adams most recently last year and I had a great time.  After song three or so, shortly after being heckled, he went into an impromptu jam about the heckler and it was fantastic.

I am with you, however, on the talking / political speak.  Just jam out - this is why we are here..

:-) = my mood since the Twins series.  Loving what these guys have been doing lately.  Heres to Tomlin keeping it rolling tonight..

I would think Matta takes some time to be with family and heal up.  Listening to Matta describe how much pain he felt after games - I cant imagine he would jump right back into that.  I am also not sure if taking another job has any impact on his contract with tOSU, but that would add another element to consider.

I am a fan of the Uncharted series they are super fun games to play. 

Comment 25 May 2017

Good to know, thanks.  Ill definitely check it out.  I have a co worker shares your interest in Dark Souls and they have suggested I check it out.  Of course, it comes with a warning..

I know we may be a ways out for God of War, but that looks like it could be a great one. 

Comment 25 May 2017

I am definitely excited about Red Dead 2 - I really enjoyed the first one.  I picked up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim greatest hits edition a few months ago (admittedly incredibly late to the party) and that has consumed ALL of my gaming time as of late.  I have had my eye on Horizon Zero Dawn and was excited about what I read, so that may be next up on my list.  Has anyone checked that out?

Comment 24 May 2017

Agreed.  Unfortunately, Tomlin doesn't have the stuff to make too many mistakes.  He can mix it up really well and when he has command he's tough.  I've honestly wondered if Salazar would benefit from a stint in Columbus.

Headed down to Cincy tonight for the game.. Anyone else making the trip? I got the first round.... Roll Tribe!

Comment 18 May 2017

Damn, man.  Thoughts to his family and friends during this time.

I am headed to Kauai and Maui for my honeymoon in July.  We did consider the all inclusive options elsewhere, however we didn't want to feel like we were stuck at a resort simply because we paid for it.  I feel like with a little planning you can mitigate some of the cost to food and drink by hitting a grocery store or by grabbing a quick/casual lunch before heading out for the day.. One of the places we are staying offers breakfast which will certainly help cut some of that cost as well. 

I'll try to remember to provide a some feedback upon our return. 

Good luck planning and enjoy the whole process.. wedding and honeymoon. 

Cheers!

Comment 17 May 2017

Yeah this weighed heavily into our decision.. I mean, I could hold off for a while longer... :-)

Comment 10 May 2017

Hey Bobby - We definitely enjoy hiking and planned on spending some time doing just that, so this is great to hear.  Dining out will certainly be a part of our time in Hawaii, so I appreciate the tip's on restaurants. 

Cheers!

Michi- Thanks for the information.  Snorkeling is a must on the trip I have even thought about bringing my own gear so that we can just hop in wherever we want to.  I will definitely look into Sharks Cove and the snorkel around there. 

Cheers!

We are headed out in July so fortunately no conflicts w/ OSU games.  I feel like a kid waiting on Christmas, in short CANT WAIT. 

Comment 09 May 2017

OSU - Thanks.  We are spending 10 days total, but as I understand from friends who have gone that its always too short.  We are certainly excited.  Thanks for the tips!

Comment 08 May 2017

Osurox - All great suggestions!  The Hiking, Catamaran and ATV excursions all sound great and exactly what we are hoping to get into.  Thank you very much for the suggestions!

Cheers!

Comment 08 May 2017

LBG - This is great feedback.  In addition to hiking we also enjoy biking, so this is definitely something I will look into.  I was told by friends who recently went to be prepared to get up early during the first few days of the trip to as we adjust to the time change.  So with that in mind, a sunrise bike ride would be nice to do.  Thank you very much!

Comment 08 May 2017

Hellfighter -  I have had many people say the same about their trip to Oahu to see Pearl Harbor.  We have also had others mention Dole and to eat as much local fruit as possible - which we will certainly do.  Thank you very much for the input!  

Comment 08 May 2017

D - Wow, that looks incredible.  We definitely enjoy a good hike and that is absurdly beautiful.  Thank you much for the input!

Cheers!
