1. Marions Piazza.  Specifically the Beavercreek one, although I'm sure they are all good. The super thin slightly burnt crust, so crispy. The tiny bite size pieces. So tiny that it's like eating popcorn. You can always eat one more lil piece. I don't get sausage on pizza from anywhere-except Marions. It's ground up so finely it's just a layer of smooth meat on top. So good with that thin crust. The sauce. Yes, it is canned sauce. But dammit it is the BEST canned sauce I've ever had. Just love Marions. Plus, and I'm sure some others here that grew up around Dayton can attest to, the place holds some special memories from my childhood.  They all used to have giant arcades, which I remember being amazing as a kid. You can get a pitcher of beer or Pepsi, or a canned drink from virtually every other beverage maker. It's so odd but cool. You can RC Cola, Pepsi, or Coke. Just unique. 

2. Donatos.  It's a chain but a local chain. And just because a place is a chain doesn't necessarily mean it's bad. Sometimes something so great has to be spread around. And besides, I've also had mom and pop pizza that sucked.  It can go both ways. Not much to add about Donatos that other's haven't. I love thin crust pizza and the cornmeal dusting on the bottom, the usage of provolone cheese over mozzarella, and the large pepperoni pizzas's with over 100 pieces (about 104-106, I used to work there), are just some of what makes Donato's so good.   And while a lot of other places just have specialty pizzas for the sake of having specialty pizzas, Donatos has some truly unique ones.   I especially love the Mariachi pizza's, in either beef or chicken. I like it cause it's got a great mariachi seasoning and isn't as messy like a lot of places taco pizzas.

Also, I think Donato's has some of if not the best subs of any pizza place. I prefer Donato's subs over many sub only shops.

3. Sbarro's...   Please, be kind!!! What can I say? I've never been to New York or Italy, I've only had Giordano's and Uno's in Chicago, and my current city of Fort Wayne has crap pizza. Just the worst.     But Sbarro's.  I dunno. I've always really liked the big floppy slices. Maybe it's tied to childhood memories at the mall eating Sbarro's. but I still grab a slice every now and then and still find it excellent.

Who really even cares about any of this stuff anymore? If guys like Sean Miller can still stay employed after what HE got away with, why does the NCAA even pursue this stuff?

It's become clear they have given up.

The thing that puzzles me is why he would scalp them. I definitely think he did, but I always assumed those Buckeye fans that go to every home and away game must be wealthy enough to do so. Is he not a rich as I assumed?

1993 vs Michigan. My older brother decided he was going to go to OSU and I remember it being the first time I had really heard of OSU. My parents are both IU alum so I went to a feW games in Bloomington, but never against OSU. It wasn't a great first Buckeye game to remember. However, my first two games I remember attending were the 1st and 2nd games of 96. 70-7 vs Rice (I vividly remember Brutus pulverizing a box of Uncle Bens rice. And of course the 72-0 sodomizing of Pitt! Both very fun!

Now I feel bad about things I've said about Michigan, the Steelers and Cubs. I've definitely wished terrible things on those teams and their fans.

Laughably pathetic effort. Dude can't even dribble the ball. The fans come out and these turds can't even beat bum team Illinois at home. What. A. Joke.

The first Thursday and Friday or the tourney are fun. Especially if OSU and Wright State are in it. If I have enough PTO I usually take off the Friday, and hope my team(s) are playing that day. If I had a ton of pto I would love to take off both days. I usually enter a huge pool, which of course makes the tournament fun to follow.

It was actually comical at times watching Ohio State try to break the full court presses, but a win's a win. Thank goodness they didn't blow it! I love watching them play no matter what but having NCAA Tournament aspirations makes it more interesting. Glad they are still in the mix.

I love /hate when all 3 of my college basketball teams are playing on the same night at the same time. Between OSU mens, and the Wright State men's and women's games it will be a basketball buffet tonight at my house.

On the OPs original post, I actually loved Aerosmith songs Cryin' and Crazy. Alicia Silverstone in the vids made them very memorable for me as a kid in the early 90's. For me a band that I used to love but was sorely disappointed in later was The Offspring. To go from Self Esteem to a song like Pretty Fly was a letdown.

No not watching. I haven't watched the last few SB's and I haven't missed it one bit. Too much hype and overkill for me. Go Rams, I am definitely hoping they get their revenge for Spygate. Marshall Faulk still wants his ring.

Home of Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam, progressive, beautiful, and legal weed. Sorry, but I cannot hate Washington!

I used to live in Las Cruces, NM when I was younger, and grew up going to NMSU games, so naturally I dislike the arrogant UNM fans. And BYU just because of the whole Mormon thing. I'm sure that makes me terrible as a human being, but I am turned off by most colleges that have weird exceptions like no sports on Sundays. Just always annoyed me. But their campus is beautiful.
