I live in an apartment in the city that I rent. I do lots of things for a living and I am content on not having an office. No wife, which is a long story. No kids either, which is an even longer story. I also have more nose hair than my brother.

I know it's not related to anything on this article, but that, sir, is the best post here.

Wow, so much to talk about here.

First, hello Allison Wiley! How you doin'?

Second,

Which makes this an impossible scenario, but kind of fun in theory: You may kiss the bride with 105,000 people cheering you on, and then you ride out through the North End Zone on his-and-her unicorns to live happily ever after. Buckeyes win.

I'm not so keen on the time out nuptials since it takes our focus away from the game itself. How about this change:

Well, I guess that all depends on whether or not we can get the unicorns to sit still through an entire Buckeye game. God knows I can't, so I'm not banking on it.

Third,

I seriously LOL'ed at that one.

Lastly, I'm one of 3 Ohio State graduates that are groomsmen in a wedding in late October. The soon to be married couple are big ND fans and they have a bye week. To them, they don't care, but they sure as shit better have a TV at the reception since that'll be the PSU game. And since it's an Ohio State game, there will likely be plenty of Ohio State fans there. I hope they know what they're dealing with that night.

I particularly love how he keeps going to pundits who typically rail against Ohio State in order to make himself feel justified in his reasoning. There's no sense in ever talking to this guy as he's completely entrenched in his belief and will never be persuaded otherwise.

Everything on the FAQ should be loaded as images and gifs for really the only purpose of giving Oyster big red X's for the whole page.

I've certainly been reading less and less on ESPN and typically just go there for fantasy baseball but I did catch a Grantland article on it and, to my amazement, I agree with Bill Simmons. Why not just wait? Kevin Love and Cavs hold all of the cards in this deal. I think, as they stated in the article, that if Love was seriously considered to be traded, he would have been already. So let's see what we have with Wiggins and how these guys mesh. Maybe Bennett turns a corner (as it is believed could happen with him losing quite a bit of weight and showing focus and determination) and then we don't have to give up Wiggins (possibly).

I think the addition of Love would be amazing, but I also don't think there is really an hurry to do this. Right now, with the core group that they have, even being young, pulling the trigger finger so quickly could be another bullet point in the long list of bad moves the Cavs have made. So try something different, let things settle, and see where they're at come December.

I'm assuming you're asking who our favorite player in baseball is so I'll go with that. Right now, I'd say Clayton Kershaw. To me, he's hands down the best pitcher in the game and it seems like he just pitches with ease. He's like Roy Halladay to me in a way. He throws hard, but doesn't look like he's going to throw his arm out of its socket every pitch, but has an array of off-speed pitches that are killer. For as young as he is, he has the chance to go down as one of the great pitchers of all time if he can remain healthy.

Prior to him, Matt Holliday was my favorite. He just did everything so well and kept quiet while doing it. I like those sorts of players.

I'm also beginning to really like Jose Altuve from the Astros. I didn't think much of him prior to the season, but he has the most hits in the majors by quite a bit and he steals like crazy. I don't know much about his defense as I don't get to see him play much at all, but being a 2B, I'd imagine he has to be at least pretty good. There are a lot of young guys making a big splash in the majors right now and it's been fun to watch the last couple years.

No way is Mariah Carey a left fielder. Her defense and arm are crappy. She's first base at best. Let's be realistic ESPN.
