One of the rules of life:

Sex ALWAYS leads to a decrease in funds one way or another.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Oh yeah.  I probably have seen upwards of 300-350 concerts in my life from 1974 thru this year.  THE best band show as far as lights/sound/musicianship/showmanship ever was Genesis (back in the day, not 2007).  Probably the best live band of all time.  At their peak, 1978-1982 they were the best.

Closest Brush with greatness.  I was the Program Director of the college station in PA and on the concert committee in 1975.  Three weeks before he hit Time and Newsweek's cover we signed Bruce to do a concert.  (Found out we lucked out as three weeks later his price quadrupled.)  So as an insider I got into the venue before the doors were opened.  Festival seating in the Davis Gym.  The stage was only about three feet high.  I was sitting on the floor literally within arms length of Bruce's Mic stand.  During Thunder Road, some moron behind me (Probably a lost weasel fan) snatched Bruce's skivy hat as he leaned out into the crowd singing.  Bruce, without missing a note, tried to snatch it back, lost his balance and landed on me.  He never stopped singing, and we helped him up.  We also got his hat back for him.  After the concert, I went backstage and gave it back to him.  Instead of thanking me, he apologized for falling on me!  Nice guy back then.  heard not so much anymore...but thats hearsay.

Second most expensive:  Michael Stanley Band.  New Year's Eve 1981 at Coliseum.  Sat next to my future wife after chasing off another friend of mine.  Had  a Hard  time getting a midnight New Year's kiss during Auld Lang Syne.  I didn't take the hint. 17 months later, we were married.  

Comment 26 Mar 2015

As did I.  Our after-prom was the Chicago-Beach Boys WSOR.  Most meorable (thru the haze) for me was Fleetwood Mac.  They came on last, at night.  Their show started with fireworks.  The finale of the fireworks was 4th of July quality.  As the fireworks ended, the booming kept going, which freaked me out...they had overmic'd Mick's drums and the drums continued their cadence to the pattern of the fireworks.  An actually pretty cool opening.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Traffic is my favorite band I never saw.  Did see Winwood at Blossom in the mid-90's sitting on the lawn.  Three teenage girls next to us.  The first three bass notes of Low Spark of High Heeled Boys and I'm screaming like a little girl at an N SYNC concert.  My wife looks over at the girls who are looking at me wide eyed and says, "Don't worry sweetheart, this song is way older than you."

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Add-on.

Most expensive concert:  Genesis at Nationwide Arena in 2007.  Spent more money than I had any right to spend for aftermarket tickets Fifth Row center on the floor.  You can actually buy the concert on line from them.  Its notable because the Buckeyes had abused Northwestern earlier in the day, so my wife and I did a doubleheader that day.  Phil Collins, three different times did the O-H! cheer.  I have that concert on CD.  Still brings a smile to my face, as long as I don't think about the $$$$ LOL.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

First:  1974 = Elton John at the old Richfield Coliseum on the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour.  The first rock concert ever at that building, the second night it was open. (Frank Sinatra opened it the previous night.

Best:  1986 = The Band at the old Front Row Theatre.  January 1986.  One of only two times in my life this happened.  The crowd refused to leave.  The house lights came on and everyone just clapped and cheered louder.  The promoter came out and said, thank you, and good night.  Drive safely.  The crowd clapped louder and got more raucous.  Finally, Levon Helm came out and said, "Damn, you folks are nuts!  WE've played everything!"  The crowd cheered louder.  They came back out and reprised about 5 songs.  Two months later, Richard Manuel was dead.  IT was like the crowd knew this was it.

Stiebler now at 51% w over 34,000 votes cast.

O have a hard time believing that Jay Harbaugh's note is real  no one is that bat-shit insane.  If I was a weasel, I would be very worried.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

Perhaps not.  I highly doubt Master Psychologist Urban Meyer is going to let a snot nosed underclassman think he's got it made.  He's protecting wear and tear on guys with some mileage already, not talent.

Comment 20 Mar 2015

Great Tombstone reference.  One of my all-times.  I use that line alot myself.  I'm stealing that GIF.

Comment 13 Mar 2015

My first guess is that Russ Jaques will get the Ed's job.  He's already there on staff.  Great HS record.  There was a stretch of three years when he was at Strongsville where he lost 6 games.....ALL to Ignatius.  Once in the reg season and again in the playoffs;  He swore off playing Catholic Schools for awhile.  LOL.  Then joined one.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

Its a tie.  How many guys have survived Marotti's St Valentines Day massacre?  Thats my answer.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

Who cares!  We are UNDISPUTED!  What MM thinks is less than meaningless.  His narrative didn't keep us out of the playoffs.  His judgements were off base.

ICNGF3, you need to learn how to be a champion.  Hold your head up high.  Look 'em right in the eye and say UNDISPUTED.  When you are king, you don't care what the serfs think.

Comment 27 Feb 2015

Originally, it was said that ONLY Heisman winners get their number up there.  Then "The Powers That Be" felt that a trailblazer like Bill Willis and an architect like Chic Harley (after all, he did build the 'shoe, right? ;)  )  should be up there too.  It was said that Chic Harley "WOULD'VE" won the Heisman if it existed back in the teens.  Hey, come on, if the weasels can do that with NC's, tOSU can do that with Heismans.

Peter Jackson presents "The Lord of the Dolodale" trilogy.  Might be my favorite trilogy of all time.

Comment 27 Feb 2015

"Numbers mean nothing."

Says someone who has never been involved in sports at a high enough level apparently.  To big time athletes, numbers mean ALOT.  I mean, A LOT.  Hell, in some sports like baseball, teammates support players with chatter, and call each other by their number, not their name.  Players will spend thousands of dollars in the pros to buy a number from another player.  Happens all the time in the NBA when players get traded to a new team.

I like the idea the weasels use of legacy numbers with special patches.  But just like everything else they do, they screwed that up too with those gawd awful patches.  But players have to earn them. a d the families of the retireee (or the player himself) should also have to approve the use.

Comment 07 Feb 2015

Have you coached either of these guys or worked with them in any capacity?  If not, how do you know which one has a higher ceiling?  If you know the answer to that, why aren't you a QB coach for a college team?

Comment 07 Feb 2015

Personally, I'm not going to try and diagnose a medical condition I know next to nothing about.  I'm going to wait and see what develops.  All this BS about Braxton is just that....BS.  Wait and see.  He might be a quick healer.  Or he might be a WR.  Who knows, but it does nothing except feed the trolls to argue about it now.

Playcalling is over rated. Given a choice, I prefer good execution to good playcalling.  

Comment 16 Jan 2015

I just laughed at Oregon.  I'm old school.  Football means toughness.  Football means kick the crap out of the guy you line up across from.  Oregon was in 2009 and still is in 2015 posers.  There wasn't anybody in those hideous silver uni's who played defense tough enough to deserve to wear the scarlet and gray.  And I laughed at those Oregon dillitants  The whole reason they have to run that hurry-up bullshit is because they can't just line up and play football.  So I just laughed at that crap.  (OK, I was drinking).
