I still call them the Jake and Gund Arena. Strangely, it's the most recently named one I actually switched to... FirstEnergy Stadium. Guess Browns Stadium was too nauseating to say, haha.

You dated yourself by calling it Byron, haha. That's what it was called when it served 7-9, along with Woodbury; about the time my mom went there. When I was there, Lomond, Onaway, Boulevard, Fernway, and Mercer went to K-4, Woodbury 5-6, the Middle School (formerly Byron) 7-8, and the High School 9-12. Malvern & Ludlow were sold while Moreland was turned into the main library. I went to Lomond and Woodbury and moved to VA the summer before starting middle schoo.

I went to Onaway for preschool as only them and Sussex did pre-K. My grandma worked for Shaker Schools and the city government for over 30 years.

As I recall, Jason Garrett went to US, right?

Xfinity is huge on the east coast. Comcast is headquartered in Philadelphia. EDIT: The University of Maryland (10 miles from where I am in VA) has its basketball arena sponsored by Xfinity.

I lived in the Lomond neighborhood until I was 12. I still have some family that lives up by Fairmount Circle.

Xfinity is alright. I have them for internet at my condo because I have no other choice. They're definitely better than some of the horror stories I've heard from other companies but they're a downgrade from what I had before with Verizon Fios. I have to do a speed test but I don't think I'm getting the 200 mps download they're supposed to be giving me.

John Oliver of HBO is an embarrassment to journalism.

Yet you source this guy???

Isn't he supposed to be in Costa Rica?

Comment 15 Aug 2017

You know John Oliver doesn't do the research himself, right? His team does the (easy) research and he makes it into jokes. Does it bother you that this topic is so transparent that a comedian is able to roast the other side?

Mods, feel free to delete. Post meant to be elsewhere.

Like Hove, I choose to slack off and view 11W on FF. No issues for me.

Comment 15 Aug 2017

Prayers for Curt, his family, and friends.

I loved interacting with Curt on the 11W wrestling forums. He was a great guy and will be sorely missed.

Comment 14 Aug 2017

I don't even use contractions in my emails, let alone things like "lol." I'm only, 27; so I would imagine that we're not alone in how we feel about (a lack of) professionalism in the workplace.

Comment 13 Aug 2017

You may actually know who I am outside of 11W. My username might give away which club team I'm most involved with, though it should suffice to say I am heavily involved with club football. OSU club football is one of the best club organizations I have encountered, regardless of school. I'm rooting for them to break on through and win their conference this year.

Recruiting linemen is always the most difficult part of filling the roster on a club football team, especially offensive linemen. The team had a pretty solid line in 2016, I hope they can build on it this year.

Comment 11 Aug 2017

The one post I ever had deleted on here in my 5.5 year 11W life was on the Sandusky scandal. It was a rather funny (to me) pic that in retrospect, probably didn't need to be shared as it made light of a dark incident.
