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

High school in the Buckeye conference? Played both May and Johnson in football. Johnson had beaten us almost single-handed all through junior high. I was a 165 lb guard in high school. You couldn't knock Stan down. Our running backs could hit the hole in a hurry so you basically had to get in Stan's way for a few seconds.

He wasn't the brightest bulb. Senior year we played at Strobel field in a snowstorm. At the end of the third quarter he started shaking our hands while saying "good game". His teammates had to grab him, pull him over to their huddle and forcefully explain that the game was not over. Final score 28 -7 for the visitors.

Hove, that is a nightmare we do not wish on any OSU faithful.

I had part of that. Job took me up there for Coop's last five years.

After the "Senator" and Urban emerged it became glorious.

Has been and always will be.....

We are on the ridge that faces dam/canal from the east. We can see the marina and Calhouns from here. It's a half hour to either Maryville or Knoxville. I go to "Murlvill" 99% of the time.

The area between Lenoir City and Farragut is rapidly growing, lot of construction, homes and commercial.

Madisonville and Sweetwater are a long way from everything. Maryville is growing like crazy but traffic is horrendous. Especially with all the damn "turists" down here now.

That was a great place for pregame in the 90's. Could not believe the game I attended, think it was the 10 - 10 tie and wondering WTF happened to Hineygate.

Best party forever.

Good for you. Preceded the traitor about 20 years in the same school. 

Played alongside Bob Brudzinzki and Rob Lytle. Against Scott May, Les Miles and Kurt Schumacher in football

We used to "scrimmage" the guys from Warren Ohio. Those did not come out well for all. Don't remember any names from those teams but they were the state champs in the old polls my second year.

We need to beat ttun in everything, always and the next year and every year after. No matter what sport /academics that is at stake.

Reminded me of a quote from long ago - "I will root for "al qaeda "  before I favor that team in ANY competition.

Tilddlywinks , Jarts. checkers, farts, basketball. beer chugging, snow shoveling, etc, etc and football.

Great ball player. The Orioles had a great squad then, Brooks, Belanger,  BOOOG, Frank, Johnson and Bayor/Blair. The pitching staff was one of the best, Palmer, Cuellar, and McNally.

Watching it after school, yes , they played all games in the light of day then, were great and that was a grainy B/W Zenith, while listening to Curt Gowdy. Remember the only view was behind home plate towards centerfield. 

Diehard Tribe fan here but couldn't watch them until 25 years later in the postseason.

His dad was on the track team and went BGSU after.

Rob, I think, still holds the school record for the 100.

You from Sandusky county?

Congrats 3M. You and Mrs. 3M have raised some great children.

I had a couple like that, but everybody said they "took after their mother".
