Welcome to parenthood. Your first and only obligation is to protect the kid. The police must be called.
How does he wear his hair?
Class of '75
Justified is #1. No TV Series IMHO ever tied it all up and ended as well as they did with that show. The writing was top notch. Which you would expect if Elmore Leonard was involved.
Billions is already #2. Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis are awesome.
The Wire is #3. A defense attorney friend of mine calls it the most realistic show of all time.
Homeland is #4. It'll scare the bejeesus out of you.
The Sopranos were #5.
Saving Private Ryan.
"Earn This! Earn This!"
Also Gettysburg. Have visited there numerous times. The movie (and book Killer Angels) brings that place alive for me. The ghosts on that battlefield are palpable to me.
I'm likin me some Annie Apple too. Handing her a microphone can only mean good things for tOSU.
I remember Grandma Buckeye saying when Archie won his second Heisman that is was for Chic Harley, because if the award existed in his day, he would've won it.
Which is close to what a ticket and program cost today.
I too was at red-Right 88. I was also at The Drive. I was at WS 1995. I had to comfort my kids who were crying in their beds in 1997. I was at the last game in Municipal Stadium before the ultimate betrayal in American History, Fuck Benedict Arnold. Art Modell was the worst traitor of all time. Next to Art, Jose Mesa was the greatest villian in Cleveland sports history.
For the record, Gordon Gund was justified in trading Ron Harper after the FBI came to him and said that Harper was involved with the biggest drug dealer on the east coast Gund didn't want him on his team. Too Bad, but don't blame GG, Blame Harper for the company he kept.
If those two get plaques, it should be renamed Ramzy's Buckeye Grove.
And if Troy Smith had done it, he would've been guilty of nothing as the rule didn't exist back then. Just an arbitrary lynching.
One of the people this team is going to miss the most is Annie Apple. She had alot more to do with building the culture of family on this team than many people realize. She got the parents involved with the team in a very constructive way without causing an outbreak of helicoptoring (is that a word?) I know Urban relied on her when it came to the controversy about playoff expenses for parents.
Congrats Annie on your son's development. You had a hand in that too, You will be missed around the 'shoe.
For Christmas, we got the kids a Dauchshund puppy. But we weren't scheduled to pick him up until the middle of January after he was weaned. The decision at Christmas was that he would be named Griffin. Then "that day" happened. On the way to Wooster to pick him up from the breeders, my daughter pipes up from the back seat, "You know, we just won the National Championship. Maybe we should name the dog Krenzel." Krenzel was with us 13 years until we had to put him to sleep two weeks ago.
Another memory: I remember coming back into the house after the snow angels and realizing that we have all abandoned our three month old on the couch and our neighbor who was watching the game with us picking him up before he rolled off.
I remember so many things from that night myself (my foggy memory of game details not withstanding).
I remember turning to my then 15 year old son after that first one handed swat of a sack and saying with complete surprise of discovery, "Oh my God! They can't stop us!"
I remember running out onto my front porch after the game at midnight and singing the Buckeye Battle Cry at the top of my lungs and other people coming out of their houses and just clapping.
I remember that same son jumping on my back and knocking me off the porch into the snow and then making snow angels laughing like a lunatic.
I remember sitting up until 8:00am copying every article off the internet and putting it into a book for Grandma Buckeye. We put it in her casket when she died 3 years later.
Yes, it was truly a great day. The picture called The Last Snap hangs over my computer in the Den to this day,
I always remember that first one handed sack on the first play as being done by Kenny Peterson and Wil getting the second a few plays later. But as my kids like to remind me, I am old. So its more than likely you are right and my memory is foggy.
RIP Wil. Say "Hi" to Grandma Buckeye for me.
One more poster who gets added to my "ignore, don't know shit" list.
My all time favorite. The voice of an angel. Annie Haslem
There is no denying that MSU scored at least twice after initially being stopped only to be given a second life by a stupid penalty. Proof that games aren't always won and lost in the statistics. Sometimes its in the context of the plays.
Son, I are on the absolute same page. Although as a long time Allman brothers fan, (they're my co- number one) many Allman brothers fans think I'm a heretic for picking such a late song.
Therein lies what I think is the answer...Fire Gulati, elevate JK to run USSoccer and get Caleb Porter to be USMNT Manager.
You apparently left an O out of your name. Harbaugh has done nothing to be compared to Bo Schembechler. You know who Bo is right? the O Coord who hung 50 on the weasels in 1961.
Any feature that routinely links to old The Wire videos is a good feature to me. Ironically, THAT is gangsta.
Here's THE BEST Irish Band in Cleveland. John and Alec are both ex-pats from Ireleand that re-located in Cleveland. John was a member of the original and famous Barleycorn in Ireland.
And below is my favorite original song written by Alec.
