That's it.. Im writing my Congressman about this chit..
Jim Nantz at the post-game trophy presentation doing his best creepy uncle impersonation.. "Touch it kids, you know you want to.. Just touch it Big John. Touch it! Ahh, yes.. How's that feel?"
Was it just me or did that thing honestly look like a pet that Hairball would own? The whole thing was weird.
I hate participation trophies. Win it on the goddamn field.
Majority of the people we ran into were very courteous. The only even remotely ill-natured exchange we had was with an usher as we were headed towards our seats.
This guy asked if we needed help finding them after we arrived at our section. I looked down at the tickets to find the row, then just smiled at the guy and shook my head, "No. I think we're good."
He looked over at the other usher and muttered "Hey, Dave we've got an Ohioan here that can read!" To which his partner replied, "Well, he may be able to read but he is still in the wrong state to watch a football game."
I just laughed and offered up a dry smile then retaliated with, "Don't either of you know that we've owned this state in football for over ten years now.. We just came up here to show you how to play it."
Great idea Bert.. Lets do this every year. We can call them bowl games. We can even get sponsors. Like a credit card company or an austrailian themed steakhouse or something...
Not going to lie.. Avon has caused the wife and I to have a few domestic arguments as well. However, none occurred on the highway though.. But alcohol was involved in many of them. ;)
Gun Metal Black unis with the Silver Bullets flying at you? Hmmm
He will play and Beth Mowins will screw his name up...
We are 1-0 when Braxton catches a TD pass.. Just give him time.
...not to mention the fact that it was Andy Geiger.
You wasnt the only one
These are ironically appropriate for Saturday.. As they will be picking up their Skittles from the Ohio Stadium turf all day long.
The only thing I can think that comes close to this current run would've been the one in '68 that featured wins over #1 Purdue, #4 *ichigan and #2 USC. But I honestly think this one is as good as it gets.
"We tried to tackle Cardale, but Rhonda Rousey punched us with this fist."
Dude.. There is no need for name calling of what appears to be a very classy fanbase. HokiePro has been a voice of reason here ever since he joined our community. And he has a point. They outplayed, and beat us in our house last year. Please dont stoop to that level. Show some dignity. We are Buckeyes. We win with class.
His name was Jason Williams. Former Marshall/Florida Point Guard and NBA star. Perhaps more well know in NBA circles as "White Chocolate."
After that game we installed a state of the art drainage system. It is basically a giant vacuum cleaner under the stadium.
..and yet no one makes a Ttun joke. That giant stadium of theirs has sucked for years.
I like the thought of taking on his former assistants. But I'm going to surmise that if either one is still at those two schools then neither has done a very good job.
I am never going to question Braxton's athletic ability. We all know what he can do with the ball in his hands. What I am anxious to see is his ability to get downfield and throw a block on a saftey that opens up a huge gain for Zeke and what he does without the ball. Football is so much more intricate than what we are able to see on the highlight reels. Coincidentally, those are also the types of plays that will get him drafted very highly.
I think it could definitely help. Obviously a lot of factors go into it. But in my mind it started way back when Karen Holbrook trumpeted her own little war on open-containers while we are tailgating on campus. Lots of folks seem to be afraid to cut loose anymore. Plus with Hineygate no longer a thing..it just poured another bucket of water on the ashes.
