Went to Indiana and one of my kids was on athletic scholarship at Iowa. But having lived in Columbus near campus for about 20 years now I root for the Buckeyes the most (except when my daughter competed). I do love to cook - and not just BBQ.

True story - my wife and I were married 30 years ago in Chicago.  My out-of-town family came over after the (small) wedding to help get all the gifts and other items back to our place.  My wife and I realize that we really haven't eaten anything all day, so we order Lou Malnati's and my brother in-law goes to pick it. up.  Oh and then my Dad decided to turn on ESPN and watch boxing.    That's how we spent our wedding night - at least for a while.  Lou Malnati's Pizza and boxing.  LOL.

Lance didn't just lie. He also actively worked to destroy the careers and reputations of people who criticized him , Eg Freddie and Betsey Andreu and others including LeMond. Heck do you think Trek bicycles bought LeMond Bikes and shut it down just for fun? LA had his fingerprints on that. In other bike news, the greatest cyclist ever, Eddie Merckxx fell while riding this week and sustained a serious head injury. (He's 74)

I'll just mention that the Aer Lingus Business Class Lounge at the Dublin airport was quite pleasant.

I saw him perform at the Chicago Lyric Opera House about 30 years ago. Lucinda Williams was the opening act and they also sang a bunch of stuff together.  Still a great memory of that concert (including the serious nose-bleed seats)   He is such an American treasure.

You know money isn't everything.  If you make several million a year already and you like the job, and your spouse is happy and your kids have friends and like their school, it's not unrealistic to turn down an extra couple million that would mean moving again and going to a dysfunctional organization in a strange place for the family.  And if he does well, he'll get a significant pay boost too and all sorts of extra perks.  So in 20 years if he only makes $100 million and not $122 million does it really matter?

MNF had such a history of interesting and/or entertaining announcers. And then there are these two guys.

It's not crazy to suggest he could be somewhere "on the spectrum" and that's not a reason for him to be criticized either. His social awkwardness and lack of context are alarming at times. He's not stupid.
