I see negative nancy #10 was here again .   I pity your poor dog...and wife...and kids.  I believe it takes fewer muscles to smile than frown.  You might try it sometime.

He meant Josh Hader of the Brewers--he of 4 saves already in the young season and on several of my teams. STX , I have 4 teams currently and play  fantasy baseball and football.  Won 5 of eight leagues in both sports last yr  . Maybe we outta get in a league sometime or at least converse occasionally on our teams.

TK , gave ya an UV to counter the DV  from some overzealous poster.  It seems that any contrarian view these days just can't be tolerated.  Kudos to you for yours...

I was at the Jan 1971 Rose Bowl vs Stanford.  I remember the crowd chanting "Texas lost, Texas lost ! " hoping to provide incentive to the Bucks to win the game and another Natty.  But Heisman winner Plunkett kept throwing  down and outs to that d@#*  Randy Vataha .  Even Plunkett would remark later that " a bunch of doctors and lawyers " beat a much better team .

Alex and his show have kept me sharp ( well, at least as much as this ol' fart can expect) and 'in the know' for decades.  He most certainly will be in my prayers as my Mom had the same affliction.

Part of Moms side of family came over during Irish potato famine. Others nearly a hundred yrs earlier to New England area where relatives Eli Whitney ,Thomas Paine and Robert Fulton lived ...two of my brothers carry their names.  An uncle on Dads side traced our  heritage back to the court of Charlemagne and a castle in Utrecht ,Holland (Netherlands) and the European spelling of our name prefaced with Von.   On the bad side , some would say, we are also related to Fletcher Christian ; he of the Mutiny of the Bounty.  My only regret is I'm not smart enough to invent anything or much of sailor --as I flew a desk in the military ;) .

Amen brother, exactly my thoughts.  Especially after watching them lose the lead and game yesterday.

Comment 23 Feb 2019

Gotta be old school for me.  Desperado , Don't Stop Believing and after four generations of alums...Buckeye Battle Cry.  Anyone who knows me would expect nothing less than an OSU song in the soundtrack of my life.

JB,  thanx for your input . But if Bob isn't the long term answer --what would you suggest?  A pkg deal mostly likely but now the picks have been spoken for so what are some options ?

Comment 22 Feb 2019

Hove, my excitement was tempered when Duchene is said to an All Star but that was three years ago. When all the other reporting  sports sites didn't include the somewhat leading  All Star tag, it only enforces the need for Panarin and Bob to stick around  after giving up 1st rd picks etc..

You opinions of  differences in culture and degrading OSU because it is "largely dominated by its football program" is rather combative dontcha think? For someone who never attended EITHER university , you seemingly feel free to insult one while defending one YOU have no connection with.  But I do .  My uncle taught physics in AA and my family now has FOUR generations of Buckeye alums so I know of what I speak and have just a little more credibility than you.  Admittedly, forty-fifty years ago the difference in academia was large but a current review will show you that is no  longer the case...BOTH public universities rated in top 16 in the country. (USNWR) . I don't believe I have called you names but simply responded to insults  about an university that is now in same strata as TSUN , albeit much to the chagrin of those arrogant enough to believe the holier than thou mantra.  Touche'

Comment 21 Feb 2019

Yea I am sure "every" sports fan reads these comments.  Ya think other fans are simply jealous of this university's success not only in sports but also in academics?  As for Big Kat,  wanna bet there are/have been  many examples of players participating for major collegiate programs that have less than the typical student reqs ?? After thinking for " two seconds" , it appears your Debbie Downer persona is one that you obviously enjoy.  But please don't take it out on your dog.
