Buckeye BadDog

Naples, Florida (via Columbus, Ohio)

MEMBER SINCE   July 17, 2014

I was born on campus - at the Ohio State Hospital - and grew up just outside of Columbus near New Rome (Lincoln Village). I graduated from Westland HS in 1979, lived in a house at Norwich & Fourth for a while (Just a short walk down Iuka Ave to the Oval and the center of the Universe), and then moved to Naples, Florida in 1983. I have been down here ever since, but while I am out of Ohio, Ohio has NEVER been out of me. I have a "Buckeye" room in my house where my Godson slept whenever he came to stay with us - which worked because he is almost as big a Buckeye fan as I am. As a matter of fact, as Carlo Hyde came off the field in his last game at Naples HS, my Godson gave him his prized Buckeye nut and told him that it was great that he was going to be a Buckeye soon.

I hope we are up big enough by the 4th that Coach Day can get all of those fine young men on the field for a few plays. 

Thank you all. You are why we are fans. You are why this team is where it is. Take Ohio State with you as you go on in life and you will never be alone.

I think this is also a play on the fact that we are giving +44 to Maryland this weekend... and will probably still cover!

EJ Smith is EXACTLY the head I was hoping would be turned. (And his Father's) The thing is, momentum brings more momentum. I can see nothing but good with this commitment. If no one else is influenced, well we're "only" left with a great WR prospect. 

It's good to be the King a BUCKEYE!

This is definitely a two-fer. Not only is Jr. Harrison a great prospect in his own right, but he brings with him a very recognizable, NFL HOF name. That name will undoubtedly turn heads that might otherwise not have looked our way.  "Well, if Marvin Harrison thinks Ohio State is the best for HIS son..."
The bottom line is, for other teams recruiting efforts, that's not a light at the end of the tunnel, it's Day. The Ryan Day and Co. Express!

I think it's personal, not the gif. I regularly get one DV every time I post. I like to find gifs and jpgs that express my feeling rather than typing a lot of text. Saves me time and it seems to be OK with most... just not all.

Oh well, who cares.

Do the five day grind once more
I know of nothin' else that bugs me
More than workin' for the rich man
Hey! I'll change that scene one day
Today I might be mad, tomorrow I'll be glad
'Cause I'll have Friday on my mind

Since we're all sharing our "Why we're Buckeyes" stories...

I was BORN a Buckeye - literally! Thanks Mom. Other than life itself, that is the best gift you ever gave me.

It wasn't called the Wexner Medical Center way back in 1961, and at the time I think there were only 10 or so babies being born there at any given week, so only 300-400 a year. It's obviously become a more popular option since then.

You cannot imaging the pride I feel in being able to say "I am more than an Alumni, I was born at THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY!"
