  • 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.

Remember, at OSU, everyone is just a number. 

Except, yours is ###-##-####, and his is 5. ;)

And if the young man is fortunate enough to play football on Sundays or be enshrined at Canton, you can tell your kids "Hey, I graduated with him!  We stood in line together, I shook his hand we totally took a selfie together -- but my thumb was on the lens..."

Four things:

1. I doubt Braxton had any role in the words chosen by President Drake.  Of course, if he'd named every single athlete, he would lambasted for focusing so much on athletes at an academic event.  

2. You went to graduation, so you probably went to rehearsal and you had someone line you up so you would stand and sit in the right place so that you could get your actual diploma.  I doubt there was a grand conspiracy amongst all of the colleges, coordinators and commencement office for Braxton to come in last, etc.

3.  You sound like you need a hug.  Do you need a hug?  I feel like you might be reading just a tiny bit too much into all of this.

4. Congratulations on graduating from The Ohio State University.

I teach kids karate.  I'm completely screwed.  (Yes, you would think that means I could block better...)

My 2 year old is at just the right height that when I pick her up to rest her head on my shoulder, the foot gets lodged just right.   Thinking about investing in some Shaolin "golden bell" training.

San Antonio Holmes would agree.

I think in this case, she'd understand.  Anyone with the gall to blame Nugent for a loss should be looking at their own performance, especially when you're part of a defense that gave up 37 points.  Did he blow that FG?  Sure, but unless Jones intercepted every ball thrown his way, made every tackle, etc, STFU.

Nugent leads the team with 99 points to his name.  Anyone else can suck it.

I should also point out that I hate, HATE, HATE the Bengals, but I'll always follow the Nuge.

Or Brady.

Bobs: So.. you call the plays?

Brady: No, the coordinators in the booth call down the play.

Bobs:To you?

Brady: Well, no, I don't have a headset, so the assistant on the field relays the play to me.

Bobs: And you, physically tell the players what to run?

Brady: No, I show fake signals while the GA makes the real call but... I uhh, slap a guy on the butt and say good game!

LOOK, I AAHHHH, ERRR HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS!  I TALK TO THE GODDAMN PLAYERS SO THE COACHES IN THE BOOTH DON'T HAVE TO.  WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!!!!!
