  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have a few, but being one of the small group of Buckeye fans at the CCHA Super 6 in 2004 when the Bucks won 3 games in 3 days to win the championship. The final game against Michigan was the best game ive seen an OSU team play in the many years I've followed the program.

The Earle Bruce era sleeve stripe uniforms have been the primary uniform since 2006. 6 years before Urban got here.

The thing I will always remember as the most important moment of the season was Justin Zwick hurting his shoulder in the Iowa game. I firmly believe that if Zwick never hurts his shoulder that Troy Smith never gets his shot at running the offense and transfers at the end of the season. Think about it, Zwick was BAD three games in a row and Troy never got so much as a look. I remember sitting in the Stadium during the Wisconsin game and saying to my Dad " Is Troy Smith so bad that he cant even get a look?". Zwick Was Tressels boy, and much like his tendency (until Pryor) to stick with under preforming seniors, Tress could be loyal to a fault. If not for that injury and being almost forced to insert Troy, the remainder of 04 as well as 2005 and 2006 could have looked much different.

Nowadays, I file those folks under either "hipsters" or "douchebags". If one doesnt fit, the other will 99% of the time.

I find the fact that a bank loan is needed to purchase a pint of the stuff much more concerning than the Listeria aspect.

Yeah, it was pretty disappointing. All I really wanted was one each of the Red and White alternate jerseys. The hockey helmets that were supposed to be available were all sold during some "presale" on Friday. I had gone to a couple of these like 15 years ago when they used to do them, and they had a limit on 2 jerseys per person. This was just a complete disaster.

I knew exactly what was going to happen when I saw the trashbags.

I was in line Friday night around 9, good enough for 5th in line. The first 3 guys in line were all dealers, from Michigan no less.. Once the doors opened up they literally bear-hugged as many jerseys as they could.

I got in line last night at 8:50pm and was 5th in line. I was hoping to get a red and a white alternate jersey and a hockey helmet. The first 3 guys in line were all dealers, the 4th a collector like myself. As we were waiting to go in, I noticed that the first 3 guys all had their pockets stuffed with trash bags. Those guys literally grabbed entire racks full of jerseys. I ended up getting a white jersey. There were no hockey helmets available as those were apparently all sold to employees in some sort of "presale". The whole thing was the closest thing to the fall of Saigon that I will ever experience.

I love 11W, but if I ever get to the point where I'm listing my helmet sticker count as an "accomplishment" something has gone very, very wrong.

I sniped former Blue Jackets goalie Ron Tugnutt in a pickup game.  That was probably my ceiling of achievement.

Edit: Not sure if it counts, But I snuck on the field before the OSU-UM game his year. That may have been my best overall moment, I lead a sad existence.
