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.
  • NFL TEAM: Buffalo Bills
  • MLB TEAM: New York Yankees

My father told me he heard on a podcast that the average cost of a dog over it's lifetime is $23,000. At first I thought that was a lot, but if you think about it, like $2k a year for a ridiculous amount of fun/love/enjoyment is really not that bad. Dogs > Kids lol.

My childhood labrador had both ACLs done, and honestly this was the hardest part. We ended up having to contain her to a small room just so she couldn't run, because she really wanted to. Good luck to your pup!

The academic argument annoys me too. OSU is a land grant school, and in my opinion should have a specific mission to achieve that designation. Recently they decided they no longer wanted to seek higher average SAT/ACT scores for incoming freshman because they want OSU to be achievable to anyone in Ohio. I think that is exactly what a land grant school should be doing. It's mean to educate the masses, not be some pseudo-ivy league school like TTUN tries to be.
