  • 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.

if there's one thing i've learned from having a toddler girl, you can put Elsa on any piece of shit and it will sell like gangbusters.  She hasn't even seen Frozen and she still is like "Daddy! ELSA!!!!!!"

So what's the over under on seeing Elsa in scarlet and grey in the near future?

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.
