I've noticed the take your baby to a bar thing, too. Last time, we were in a bar watching an excellent live jazz combo. Privileged hipsters bring not one but two toddlers, proceed to sit down and pour gin down their gullets while ignoring their spawn. The toddlers, who I'm sure didn't ask to come to a dank basement full of drunken adults, proceed to do toddler stuff...like chase each other around, hassle the waitstaff, and throw tantrums while lying on the boozy cement floor. You'd think management would intervene, but no...apparently throwing paying customers out is a no-no. We just did a slow burn while looking daggers at mommy and daddy dearest.

My mother would have kicked my ass if I had taken my toddler to a bar. Ah, the good old days!

Absolutely. I understand the poor guy is in pain every single day. Chronic pain messes with every other body system, and it changes who you are. I think Thad is one hell of a person. I hope nothing but the best for him, but honestly it would be better for OSU and him to part ways. Both can then focus on healing.

I wondered why my Nebraska fan coworkers were laughing like hell when we hired Beck.

Figured it out.

Frankly, this is why Urban gets the big bucks. It's his job to figure out exactly what's wrong and fix it...NOW. 

We supposedly get a lot of very talented young men in this program, but many of them don't seem to be reaching their potential here. How else to account for the jarring difference in talent between Clemson and us? (Thank Woody we don't have to play Bama.) And that, imho, is mostly on the coaches. That is their job...help a good player become great, a great one a star, and a star a superstar.

It was the strangest show I've heard in a long time. I don't listen to his show to hear about his days at BG or coaching Tim Tebow. I want to know wtf he's going to do to beat Northwestern! Yet the chorus kept tossing softballs and talking about anything else as long as it wasn't the Penn State game or any other game on the schedule. Weird.

Thanks for the link to the Will Smith story. I was just wondering what the status of that case was.

IU has been damn pesky the last few years. We need to jump on them with both feet right out of the gate.

Regarding the story on training Hollywood horses, Google Jimmy Stewart's horse sometime. The horse's name was Pie, and Jimmy rode him for 22 years in all his Westerns. Jimmy swore the horse knew when the cameras were turning. At the end of Pie's life Jimmy helped bury him, and seeing how broken up Jimmy was, Henry Fonda painted a portrait of Jimmy and Pie.

I had to sneak into the theater to see it since I wasn't old enough to see an R movie at the time. (Actually, five of us girls from my Girl Scout troop snuck in together to see it.) 

Hate me if you want, but I still have the album I bought in the lobby that night. There was some shitty disco music, admittedly (Gene Kelly?? Ethel Merman??) but there was also some decent, fun stuff.

Mr Chick grew up in Springfield; graduated from North. When he took me home to meet his folks the first time, about 30 years ago, it was a nice little city. Now, the only time we go there is for family funerals and we get the hell out as soon as we can. Like many other small cities in Ohio, it's dying a slow, painful, unfortunate death.

I understand wanting to get out of there, but going to AA seems like jumping from the frying pan into the fire...

You're right, of course. But that wasn't the only reason. That game was a coaching head-scratcher. Zeke wasn't the only one wondering why the hell the best back in the country wasn't getting any touches. And the rain seemed to completely freak out whoever was calling the plays. Sparty was the better prepared team, and on that day had the superior coaching and game plan.

I visited a friend who lives in Northport, ME last spring (offseason). The local hobbies seem to be frantically making junk for the tourists to buy, drinking Fireball shots, and beating the crap out of each other. I was happy to get the hell out of there, and I told her that I would buy a ticket for her to come to Cbus, but I'm never going back there again.

Re: the list of foods to never eat...I never could understand why people actually pay good money to slurp down things that look like giant loogies. I suspect that, as our oceans continue on their way to eventually becoming gigantic hot tubs, seafood in general is going to become more and more problematic. My dad used to have these pathology books that had pictures of all the things that live in raw meats and seafood...and what they looked like inside the people that ate said rawness. I still won't eat sushi...
