In the 11W game since November 2006, Chris has seen the site grow from the days of one or two posts to the coverage bonanza you experience today. A lifelong Columbus resident, his love for Ohio State was instilled at an early age by a Pop that spoke of Ohio State football and basketball with a professor's insight creating a passion now channeled through our corner of the Buckeye blogosphere. When not at home with his lovely wife and daughter, Chris spends time at the golf course, collecting vinyl records and chasing Phish across the country.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: It's a tie. I'm a diehard Buckeye and Yankee fan so...
    1. Seeing Ohio State beat Miami for the one and only national title of my lifetime
    1A. Seeing the Yankees win the '96 series. It wasn't the first of my lifetime but the first since I began religiously following them in 1983 when Mattingly was called up for good from Columbus.

There were over 460 titles this year, up from about 400 last year. I get that it isn't your thing and that's cool but I think there was a fair amount to offer this year.

Haven't made it to Hills yet. Hudson's Baby Bourbon is really good. Ramzy and I had one on Saturday at PINS.

Columbus is spoiled when it comes to legit vinyl stores. These five in particular stand out: 

  • Records per Minute - Clintonville
  • Spoonful Records - Downtown
  • Lost Weekend Records - Clintonville
  • Magnolia Thunderpussy - Short North
  • Used Kids - Campus

Correct, lol. One of my dad's buddies is a true hoarder of all things music and sports. He bought one of those Technics to use, then another to hang on to, way back then. When I started getting into collecting vinyl 6 or 7 years ago he was like, "I think I have a brand new turntable you can have" so he just handed it over. I traded him one I bought that ripped albums to mp3. He has thousands of records. Stacks on stacks on stacks of old Peaches Records crates packed solid. He still listens to them all the time.
