  • SPORTS MOMENT: I used to live in NYC and would watch games at the alumni gathering. After a lack luster win over YSU the bar flipped the TV's over to what would become Michigan's infamy, the App State game. After watching Michigan fail and wrapped in the ensuing warm glow I then made my way back to Grand Central, dressed in full regalia as always for the games. As I crossed 6th I saw, headed my direction, a utterly dejected Michigan fan, also in full tailgate dress, head down, oblivious to me as he trudged west on 46th. I stopped to watch his slow shuffle, a wide grin growing on my face. About 10 feet away looked up and our eyes met, my grin turned to laughter. I laughed, not a polite chuckle, but a deep cathartic howl that exercised all the Cooper demons from my soul. The look of anger, pain and confusion welling up on his face was a dish I had never tasted from a Michigan fan and I reveled in it. In a city of 9 million, our paths crossed at exactly, from my view, the right time. No words were exchanged. We passed, never to see each other again. But I feel safe in saying neither of us will forget those few seconds at 46th and 6th Ave in Midtown, and that is my best sports moment.

I have a hat that has just a big Buckeye on the front and I also live in the Bay Area.  I quit wearing the hat because I got tired of everyone thinking I was wearing a pot leaf hat.  Last time I wore it was about a year ago.  Tourist guy comes up to me, says he likes the hat and asks if I am excited for the upcoming fall.  I say I am but we've got some questions to answer on offense and some big games to get past.  He looks at me with a confused look and then asks, "So you think it won't pass?" ("it" being the full recreational bill on the November ballot that did end up passing).  To which I become confused thinking he is making some strange reference to the passing game.  We stand there awkwardly for a for moments during which he glances up at my hat a few times.  I then say, "It's a Buckeye leaf." and turn the hat around to show "Ohio State Buckeyes" embroidered on the back.  He then apologizes and walks away saying, "And I'm from Michigan, I should have known better."  

I stick with my Block O hat these days.

Lovie Smith seems like a likable guy but he hasn't had to deal with recruiting 16 year-olds since before the days of email and he's a .500 coach.  I don't understand how this is seen as a great move on the part of Illinois.  I see this as a questionable hiring of a mediocre coach.

If you think a reorg is equal to being fired then you clearly have no idea what it means to be fired.

Fired is when they call your ass down to HR while someone else boxes up your personal belongings and they tell you if you are seen on company property after today they will call the police.  That, is "being fired".  Seeing as Hinton is still employed by the Ohio State Athletic Department he was in no way, shape or form, fired.

I attended a Catholic HS in the late 80's when ND was winning MNC's and Ohio State was losing to Indiana.  I was given so much unending hell for being an Ohio State fan that I will always and forever hate ND. $#%$# ND and their fans.

Based upon perspective, lighting, shadow and pixelation I am 100% certain this is not real, wrap or stickers.  I owned a car with real buckeye leafs on it and they don't like anything like this in photographs.  I spent years with the real deal, this screams fake.

The Roku and Nexus products are already wifi.  In fact all 3 of the products Sling TV offer are strictly wifi.  Looks like you already got your wish.

The drunk wouldn't be able to sue, they wouldn't have standing, but the bike riders can.  I doubt most people that have a job where they might sell alcohol truly understand the liabilities they are taking on when they do so.
