Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now I am a Regulatory Consultant for a large utility. We vacation in Mexico. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W and I probably like Bacon more than you. Married with a daughter and we have one pug (Beanz) who get gassy.

Technically they are Dick Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine. Entertaining as any band can be!

Same thought here.  I had never heard of them and although I am not all-knowing, 20+ years in the business generally means you hear of the big ones (RWE, EON, etc).  Personally, I think it's kind of risky to lock in rates instead of following the market, especially one that could result in low prices.

Not surprising.  Either you weren't around for the 90's or it wasn't that big of a deal to you.  Think about all of the teens and twenty year old kids who say that they hate Xichigan.  They don't really hate them, they just really dislike them.  You don't get that hate from beating a team all but twice in the last 15 years.  You get that hate regenerated and fueled by having your dreams smoked by the bad guy.  Until that happens (and 2011 was not that year) the hatred isn't real.  When it does happen, we will welcome the new fold of OSU fans into the cage match.

DJ, There would be one bright spot is Xichigan wins: the souls of thousands of kids would burn hot to see the tears of the Wolverines. Just as you have noted that Wolverine fans don't know what it is like to beat OSU, the opposite is true, there are scores of OSU fans (a generation) that doesn't know the pain of that 'dream snatching smelly rodent from up north' stealing a win and halting the train of destiny. Try living through the 90's when OSU had better teams but managed to lose 3 games theyou should have won. Feed off of the new generation.....

Abe is good. Bacon wrapped spicy sausage was even better! But of course it is when you cover it in brown sugar and BBQ sauce. Next year's concoction was devised as we sampled the morsels. Think Bacon Explosion on a toothpick.

Yeah, I went to that game.  If I remember correctly, it was a nice day with a slight breeze.  Maybe 70F-75F in the 'Shoe.  It was a total beat down.  I went to the game expecting a decent test, but it became a laugher real quick.  I immortalized the game day ticket (with the score on it) by placing it on my bar and covering it with resin.  Maybe a million years from now, someone will find it and say, "Yeah, Mark May is a ass-hat."

I agree. He made things right by apologizing and signing some balls for him.  Sometimes, the reaction and subsequent action(s) tells us more about ones character than we would expect. In this case, he didn't have to apologize, but it was the right thing to do.

It seems like they care less about making the right call and more about not making the field referees look bad.  By restricting the flexibility of what can or cannot be reviewed, they pigeon-hole themselves into bad calls.  Apparently, on this one they could only review whether or not there was contact, not "who" inititated the contact or if the receiver came back in bounds as soon as possible (hate to give Mark May credit on this one).
