Also - in great contradiction - Lake Mead was so low you could see the water marks on the canyon walls at Hoover dam, yet I was really worried about getting out of Death Vally due to the rain.

i drove out in a lightning storm - I'm guessing 4000 feet in elevation in the dark.

We also stopped at the Hoover Dam.  I wish I would have known about the dam face forced wind updraft when we were there.

there are some massive fish at the bottom of the water holding side of that dam.

visually seeing their shape that high up - I got verification that it wasn't just me

I tried to find the name of the place in Phoenix.  It might be The Original Breakfast House.

that name doesn't seem right but the location - I do remember Thunderbird Ave.

we also stopped at the Monterrey Aquarium.  Parking is hard, but why not?  The 800 miles to El Paso is the hardest.

Non football road trip:

Houston to LA w/ breakfast in Phoenix suburbs (wish I remembered the name of the place - it was awesome despite Arizona's odd time zone rules).

Next day - LA to Santa Cruz on the PCH (stops in SAN Louis Obispo & some town I forget the name off & the place where you see elephant seals on some boardwalk).

Santa Cruz for wedding.

Next day - Santa Cruz to Yosemite & also Death Valley (where it RAINED!  & nearly washed out the road).

to Las Vegas.  (Too tired for the casinos, though my wife & MIL who fear driving in mountains were not)

Next Day - Grand Canyon, Navajo Nation, Utah, Grand Junction, 3 AM arrival in Denver.  That one was hard.  Rain in the mountains actually scares me a bit.

Denver - I cancelled all the things on the itinerary because I was wiped out.

Denver to OKC.  Original plan was not to go this way but bad rainstorms in S Colorado & talk of flooding had me re-rout through Kansas.  I made it 3/4 through the State & couldn't take it anymore.  My wife bailed me out.

OKC to Houston.  Meh. (After what we had seen!  It was nice to know crossing the Red River that we only had 4 hours of driving left, though).

I remember driving back to Houston about then & wearing my OSU shirt.

at a rest stop I ran into someone else wearing an OSU shirt - I can't remember where I was coming back from, though.  Probably SAN Antonio to drop off drawings, I used to fly to Dallas for that.

I am thinking he's so good that his normal mode causes his opponents to reach deep just to play with him & in critical situations his 5th gear obliterates an otherwise incredible athlete.

(not that that has ever happened to me before...)

Comment 18 Oct 2016

Hypothetically - how about this for our last 5 games....

beat Sparty

beat TTUN (close)

beat Wisconsin in Indy

Beat Oklahoma in CFP

blow the doors off TTUN in CFPCG

I saw him miss one against Indiana but it happens sometimes.

Comment 17 Oct 2016

I can't remember if it went forward or backwards.  If it went forwards it goes back to the spot of the fumble as if it went out of bounds if backwards it should go to the spot he touched it.  The player essentially becomes an extension of the out of bounds line if I understand the rule correctly.

They helped us by calling 2 penalties on us in OT, right?

Comment 17 Oct 2016

LOL - targeting, blow to the head of a defenseless participant.
