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.

Yep. I've got some Evan Williams '09, Buffalo Trace and Larceny which are all around that $25-30 price point and great drinkers. Eagle Rare, though sometimes tough to find at least in Columbus, is also an excellent value at $32-ish. And Henry McKenna is still usually around $32 though could likely increase in price after winning one of those coveted Best Bourbon awards recently.

That is indeed a bottle of Yellowstone in the back - good eye. I haven't opened that particular bottle but I've had it and it's very good. I also have a bottle of Minor Case on my "overflow shelf" in my office. When I first started getting into this, I was very rye-heavy in my purchases and I picked up Minor Case at The Party Source across the Ohio River in Newport, KY. Definitely good stuff that I'd recommended to anyone.
