  • SPORTS MOMENT: 1998 UM/OSU. My first three years at OSU were marked by devastating losses to Michigan. 1998 we were riding high until the MSU game and expectations for the Game were at an all-time low. We won, I rushed the field and took home some turf, planted it and kept it alive for a few months, which is longer than most of my relationships at the time.

i think the photo shoot is the worst part of this uniform, it's like they just grabbed one of the equipment guys, had him get dressed, took a potato-phone pic in the hallway and slapped it onto a flat bg in photoshop.  

Meanwhile, we get nice angles, professional lighting, etc:

But the effort that went into this shoot probably sums up the number of craps Nike gives about their contract. :)

When the Crew played there, it was the smallest pitch in the MLS.  Back then, there was a track to contend with, but I don't think they could get any wider now.

All World Cup soccer fields must be a minimum of 110 yards to a maximum of 120 yards long by a minimum of 70 yards to a maximum of 80 yards wide

When the Crew played here, the pitch was only 65 yards, I believe.  Not gonna happen.

It's great, but at $11 a six pack. I'll just buy some Sprecher at Menard's and have a side of bourbon. :)

It could be that I've made the drive way too many times (I no longer drive to VT, but to Greensboro regularly) and the only reason I don't stop going there is because I can't hold the pee until Bluefield.

The one at 14/high was called Beekman's.  I still refuse to go to Canes on principal, though I'm sure they had little to do with Beekman's closing.  Steamed bagel sandwiches... I miss that, though there is a bagel cart near campus that does similar things now.

unneeded arts depts

Unneeded?  A bit harsh, don't you think?  Unless you think that art provides absolutely no contribution to the world, in which case, I feel sorry for you.
