Great write up, KB. I really enjoyed reading it and listening to the tracks as I typed this.

Huge, I mean HUGE fan here. I was lucky enough to work as a runner for a local outdoor concert venue the summer of 92 when Lollapalooza came to town. I was pumped to see and meet the guys from RHCP, Pearl Jam and Ice Cube too but it was Soundgarden that made the biggest impression on me and still has to this day. I stood off the side of the stage as they performed their set in the middle of the day and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen and felt. The power coming from Chris' voice and the heavy music was incredible. I just stood there - looking back and forth between them and the crowd. Insane. I can still picture it perfectly all these years later. They were all great dudes too. All of them were actually. Lots of great stories from just that one day alone. So thankful to have been there to get that experience.

I immediately dove into Soundgarden's music and followed them closely and still do to this day. I loved all of Chris' musical ventures. I think I actually appreciate Audioslave more now than I did when they were together. Every time I hear Like A Stone it chokes me up a bit. Big fan of the early stuff too - turned me onto Mother Love Bone (not Chris I know) and obviously Temple of the Dog. My favorite part of Peal Jam Twenty is the early footage of Chris and Andrew Wood.

RIP, Chris. Truly one of the all-timers.

I'm from the 513 and have plenty of family and friends that love tOSU. Great mix of grads, current students and plain old lifelong fans. Always a steady stream of cars driving up I-71 Saturday mornings for games. That being said I watched every second of the game with a feeling of joy I can't explain since it'll quiet down my friends who may have thought UC was inching closer to tOSU. I just hope it doesn't wreck Fickell too much... I'm heading to get some Skyline now... maybe some Graeter's after... Go Bucks!

I feel like almost every game I attend they cart out a former player or two (and their family) and announce their contribution to the school and/or athletic department. It seems so regular that it may not make national or even local news at this point.

My buddy uses NordVPN. $108 for 3-years. He's got me thinking about trying it since our parent company blocks a lot of sites from us...

I'm a huge Simpson's fan. Millhouse has always been one of my favorite characters and he was set to play Fallout Boy in a movie in an episode.
Not the band... lol.

I was there too. In section 21 also (row 7). We were sitting closer to the Washington band. I couldn't even here ours. Their fans seemed a lot more amped to play us then we did to play them though. We're more of a marquee opponent than they are IMO. Their band and fans were loud and into it for sure. Our fans are a little spoiled I think. I saw a lot of families in OSU gear where the kids and sometimes wife weren't even paying attention to the game.
