  • 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.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: My college roommate and backup long-snapper extraordinaire, Kevin Loadman. and Eddie George.
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: Scoonie Penn (Get of my lawn!)
  • NFL TEAM: Steelers
  • MLB TEAM: Reds

If I was having an annoying day at work, I always knew I could walk to Mirror Lake and get a chuckle from watching this guy.  Sad.

There are at least 2 Braxton's in my daughter's daycare. No Cardale's that I'm aware of, but we've moved out of the infant room, so I don't have current data :)

I don't mind the bike lane, but it does cause me some consternation at rush hour, trying to turn onto summit from 18th. Cars are parked on the west side of the street plus a bike lane means I'm about 8 feet back from traffic, making it pretty hard to see if anyone is coming w/o blocking the bike lane.  Not to mention that for the last 20 years of my life, I've been conditioned to look one way for traffic on Summit. I hope no hits a northbound biker...

Going out West introduced me to Tom Waits, but Jockey Full of Bourbon is my favorite.

I still remember the 03 loss to TTUN.   I was at a friend's house on Norwich, and had just stepped outside fuming when I heard glass breaking and a very loud FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU followed by a TV being thrown out of one of the top windows of Riverwatch.  

Those guys were downright classy compared to this.  They at least appeared to have clothes on.
