Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

Great article on one of the best to ever play the game of checkers. Born in Ironton, skipped four of his first eight grades in school, then went on to receive a doctorate from TOSU in Combinatorial Analysis. Not sure if that's still a thing, but it seems perfect for mastering a game with 500 billion, billion possible moves. Yeah, had to look that up and no it doesn't seem possible. Next time you find yourself at Greenlawn Cemetery, say hello to Marion Tinsley the eight time world checkers champion and former Buckeye.

Normally I would agree with you, but after two years in Ann Arbor he would turn fat, slow and be considering a position change.
