Capt. Kline 12th Warrior

Retired in East Tennessee (via Fremont, Ohio)

MEMBER SINCE   February 03, 2015

Ohio born, still loyal to Browns, Buckeyes and Indians. Long, long time lurker. Played H.S. ball with and against guys that played for Woody and Bo. Only site I look to for Buckeye info. Have always enjoyed the "dry wit", intelligence, sarcasm and humor from all. Had to live in **ichigan for work, through the Cooper years. Then Tress came along, last ten years up there were glorious.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Met both Woody and Bo at a banquet honoring two All-Americans from hometown, (Brudzinski, Lytle). While living in state up north, attended a dinner that Tress got recognition from Duffy Daugherty Foundation. Dantonio was also present. Have both their signatures on the Dispatch's front page day after '02 championship. Dino even added "Go Bucks". Worst moment - in the upper deck, right field, on the 15 yard line for "Red Right 88".
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Anyone that has worn Scarlet and Gray
  • NFL TEAM: Cleveland Browns
  • MLB TEAM: Cleveland Indians

I'm old enough to remember that one. 

Cold War scenario during the actual Cold War.

Then we had "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" to enjoy.

Spencer Tracey, Sid Caesar, Milton Berle, Ethel Merman and Ohio's own-----Jonathan Winters!

Need the Al  Michael play call. Great victory for the USA.

Remember that it started in late afternoon(?????) because it was a semifinal. 

Got a call from good friend about the result, went to the nearest watering hole to watch the replay. All the holes were packed.

"Can you believe in MIRACLES???????"

Yep, if I had not been in the bar after work, in my browns, stinky, sweaty, with cardboard/road dust covering both arms, neck and face, would have never reconnected with the woman of my dreams. 

It's been thirty five years, great times and sad periods.  

Glad I decided to have a "cold one " on the way home.

Got me a good one.

Thankful that the stars were aligned for your father that night and, for that surgeon who realized where he was needed in that situation.

Give your father an "OH"!

Damn straight!

Wilhelm, Doss coming for his senior season,

They don't make them like Chris Gamble anymore.

Roster was full of eventual All-Americans. 

Comment 03 Jan 2020

"Holy Buckeye", Krenzel keeping drives alive at the right moment. Clarett with the "wheel route" against ttun and Will Allen's interception to end that game.

Clarett's strip off that Cane interception. Cie Grant taking out Dorsey on that last play.

Start of the marvelous rebirth of OSU FOOTBALL.

It's been 2960 days since ttun has won. and they still suck.

We have no one else over to watch the game, wife wears hear "Shelly Meyer" duds from Bend.

We watch in separate rooms. She will watch live, I DVR and catch up later.

Gameday s*x in the morning to get the "Mojo" going in the right direction.
