Friend from my MS program had me store his huge block O (from his undergrad) that he couldn't move cross-country with, a year before I ended up committing to a PhD here. It was destiny. I offset horrible Sundays watching the Bills with great Saturdays watching the Buckeyes.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Catching a baseball that Mariano Rivera warmed up with in the bullpen. He never went in the game because Joba Chamberlain blew it in the 8th before Mo could save it in the 9th. Bullpen coach tossed me the ball after the game was over.

Everyone knows that Tressel would set aside time during every trip to Madison in order to go arrowhead hunting (one of his favorite pastimes).

Haha I was going to ask the same thing. Maybe there's a new LGBTQ mutual fund or something.

Columbus weather has fucking sucked for like the past month. Check the weather in the morning, 90% chance of rain, don't get anything. Check the next day, 10% chance of rain, we get 2" and it thunderstorms all fucking day. Makes me want to strangle a meteorologist. The weather so far would have been literally perfect for outdoor FNL. They should have prepped for both and ran inside if it started raining.

My wife's corporate job has sexual orientation equality seminars and events quite often. They sponsored the pride parade this year too. Then again they sponsor a metric fuckton of all sorts of things around Columbus. Gotta watch what you say in the corporate world. If you can't say something nice, don't say it at all (even if you're joking).

Everyone on here seems to talk highly of Jackson and McCoy. I'm going to have to check them out. 

I actually like Common man's rants more than them talking sports. I can relate to his rants as I generally dislike everything. Carpenter and Rothman feels like the only show on 97.1 where the 'sports opinions' aren't extremely superficial. The other shows just seems redundant to me when I've already gotten news online. I don't respect the speaker enough to care about their opinion I guess.

Damn. It's right down the road from me so I've always just meandered down whenever (apparently later, after the rush) and never had problems.

They don't open until noon. Found that out the hard way this week at 1130 when I had to be back for a meeting at 12. Nothing worse than a RayRay tease.

I think everyone has been light on details because a member of their staff passed from cancer today.
