I grew up in Houston, but was raised in the traditions of Ohio State. Taught by my father, graduate of Ohio State in 1969, I learned of the stories of Woody, Archie and Tatum. After graduating from Fisher in 2004, I went into the energy industry and live back in Houston where I am a finance manager. I participate in the local OSU alumni group while also help recruit high school students to OSU.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, to watch Ohio State win its first national championship since the 69 Rose Bowl, which my father attended. Hopefully I won't have to wait for a kid of mine to attend Ohio State before wins its next.

Because I'd hate to say something that pushes your last nerve.  And I prefer to spend time with people who don't tell me to f&£k myself in the privacy of my own home.  

That's me though.  I recommend Hugo's, Uchi or underbelly the next time you are here.  All excellent.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Oh my god.  I had a lot to drink tonight but I can still understand the difference between your and you're.  "You're personal anguish" is the same thing as "you are personal anguish".  Is that what you're trying to say?

Comment 26 Oct 2014

I ask this question because I feel like there are probably more effective ways to troll PSU fans than posting on eleven warriors. Maybe you just need instructions...

Comment 26 Oct 2014

You made a post, directed towards penn state fans on an osu blog while replying to an ohio state fan and graduate.  Then you tell that Ohio state fan and graduate to go f"random letters because we are children"k himself in the privacy of his home. Yeah, I can see how this was really an assault on PSU and nothing you did was personal.  I guess I'll ask a personal question.  Did you actually graduate from college?  Not osu, but any college?

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Inflammatory is "you're (because I try to use proper english and have a degree) a whiny little bitch".  And listen, if you had just said something bitchy about the sanctimonious assholes that are most penn state fans, I wouldn't care.  But instead feel necessary to respond to my post because out of the 500k OSU alumni, there can't be one who is disappointed about this game. Well hey, man, sorry.  Game kind of pissed me off because I expected more. I didn't call out players or coaches, just essentially said, shit, think we could have played better.  Wasn't a good game. And don't really care if I have "worked your last nerve".  Your nerves are really low on my list at the moment.  

Comment 26 Oct 2014

I don't have to imagine this. I appreciate this.  And thanks, I am pretty pleased to have graduated from OSU. But I have to let you know, I feel like you said that in a derogatory fashion, and as someone who is proud of my degree, I don't understand why you need to say that.  But reality is, tonight, OSU did not advance its cause for competing for a national championship in 2014.  Maybe next year, but this did us no service for 2014. If your criticism is that I never should have had those expectations, fair enough. If your criticism is "you think different than me so shut up", well then I can't really connect with you so don't waste your time in responding.  

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Imagine what I want?  Well considering I am an osu grad and fan, I want osu to beat penn state. And we did. I am happy for that. But I just don't think we played as well as we could have against a horrible penn state team. 

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Actually no.  This is what penn state fans are saying:  "Penn State gave Ohio State everything they had, and all the Buckeyes could handle, and that's with 45 scholarship players. Just imagine the future.

I, for one, can't wait."

Comment 26 Oct 2014

I appreciate the Arkansas Alabama thing, and when we win as many national championships as Alabama has in the las 7 years, I'll give games like this some slack.  And when penn state is as good as some of the sec top half teams, then I'll agree with your other statement.  I understand this idea that anyteam can play up at any time.  But when you lose to a shitty va tech team, you don't really have a lot of rope to play with.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Purdue 2012, I was at a furniture store and I literally just stopped the play by play only to find out with a minute left that the smooth rythems of kg would save us.  Not a national championship team however. 

I was at the Wisconsin game.  That was awesome.  

I really was just Starting to believe and I feel like penn state just told me there is no santa clause.  And now I just want to spread anger.  I am not proud.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

Penn state may be a tough place to play.  I was there in 03.  Place rocks out.  But they are not a rival.  They are not a good team.  We lost any chance at a playoff tonight.  Jt probably lost a trip to New York tonight.  I am glad we won.  But I feel, after drinking a lot so forgive me, that we did not better our position after tonight.

Comment 26 Oct 2014

I Really understand the down votes tonight's. And maybe it's just one to many IPAs.  But my god, was this not a horrible gMe for Ohio state?  Bosa is a beast, so wrong place for me to voice my frustration. I just want expecting us to play like shit against a crappy penn state team short 20 scholarships who lost to Michigan bad newded 5 ints to beat rutgers,

Nikola tesla does not support Thomas Edison as a 1 seed.  Honestly, Edison and Rockefeller may have been the most successful and biggest influencers, but they both were both built their wealth through the oppression of others.  

Come on wright brothers and Dave Thomas.

Comment 11 Feb 2014

I think we should be attempting more 3 point attempts... This team just has too many pure shooters on the outside to attempt 50% of their shots from inside the arc.  

On a separate note, I want to hug and kiss a poisonous snake.

Comment 29 Jan 2014

We lost a game at home where we attempted 20 more free throws then the opposing team.  20.... Where is the dumpster fire, I am looking to end the pain.  

 

The last three months have just been so much fun.

Comment 29 Jan 2014

If this rivalry was based on annoying disillusional fans, then I'd place Penn State as number 1.  Since its based on history, competitiveness, quality of opponent and mutual respect/history, then I'd have to put them behind Michigan, Wisconsin and MSU.

PSU has 3, 10 win seasons since 2000 (1 less than Iowa) while Ohio State has 10.  So they just have not been a great team.

Ohio State is 9-3 in the last 12 games, so they have not been competitive.

When I think about most painful losses, I can think of 3 right off the top of my head with MSU (3 undefeated seasons ended at the hands of these guys without looking it up), 2 for wisconsin (broke our record winning streak and while we were undefeated) and none really for Penn State.

We have only played each other 28 times, which is not really that much for a major rival.

I like beating them because their fans suck, but from a football perspective, not one of the most important games of the season.

Comment 08 Jan 2014

A fucking men.  The fact that this team continually relied upon miller when hyde was the horse, was a joke.  And the inability to see the mistake was a travesty.  And the excuses for miller being injured is just dumb.  Miller is injured so make him do more?  Don't put in Kenny g?  The back half of this season was a travesty of stupidity
