  • 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. Close second would be Ed
  • NFL TEAM: Steelers
  • NHL TEAM: CBJ, I guess. I'll take college/minor league hock
  • NBA TEAM: pass.
  • MLB TEAM: Reds

I would like to suggest OYO Michelone Reserve.  It's a bourbon/wheat whiskey blend, made in Columbus.

Did you also wear an onion on your belt?  It was, after all, the style at the time.  I myself couldn't afford the white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

When I went to OSU in the 90s, it was the same issues, minus the tech.  Students brought their point and shoots or disposable cameras and took yet-unnamed selfies and other blurry crowd shots that got a lot worse as the night went on.  Plenty of folks in the student section BARELY paid attention to the game, just chatting, checking out the girls, and putting down their smuggled booze whenever the rest of the stadium blew up with cheers.  For many, the game was just a place to be seen and to see others.

My point is, if I'm cheering for the Buckeyes, but I also want to enjoy the game experience in my own way (reading stats, tweets, taking pictures) why should it matter as long as I'm not blocking your view? :)  This is just an amped up version of bringing your AM radio with you to listen to commentary on 1460 (cranked up really loud, no headphones needed) and wearing your Keith Byars jersey while muttering about "fundamentals!"

Drew Carey's greatest sin against humanity is convincing an entire generation that "Cleveland Rocks."

What I've noticed about Skyline is that it is a food with NO middle ground.  You either love it and think it is a gift from the gods, or that it is pure poison.  Perhaps, like the Indians and Browns, it is something you have to be exposed to from birth in order to love? :)
