Longtime Buckeye fan. Have memories as far back as 1964. Was in the stands when Archie ran wild against North Carolina and nobody knew who he was. Am a husband, father, grandfather and crazy fan of the greatest college football program in the history of college football.

Archie and Pete was a real life combo that was, in fact, the dream combo. Thunder and lightning.

The Radon guys were at the house yesterday. It was a solid two-man crew. Enjoyed talking to them and they did a great job. May as well give them a plug, SWAT Environmental. Cost was $845 which was the lowest of three bids we got. The other bids were $950 and $915. 

The job took about 2.5 hours. They found the perfect place to put the pipe; on side of house tucked away in a corner with some of the other utilities. Best part is that in that location, it was just a one floor run of pipe to the roof line.

I feel like we could have stayed in the home another 30 years and never be impacted by radon in that it's an unfinished basement in which we spend close to zero time. Strangely, however, I feel good about having it done. Now on to the smoke and CO detectors!

Admire your strength, Calpop, and happy you’re doing well but this seems a stretch of an analogy.

Hondo checking in. John Havlicek, the inspiration for my screen name, was a hero of mine as a kid. I was born in '57 and have only second hand memories of his time at OSU. But I have vivid memories of his NBA career and time with the Celtics. The guy was a perpetual motion machine on the court, known for his non-stop, off the ball movement that often resulted in him sinking a shot or getting a back door coming off a screen. What a career. And what a well spoken class act. Thanks for the memories, Hondo. May you rest in peace.

Depleted and used. OSU stuck with the young man when he was injured and down. He was given loyalty, scholarship, exposure, rehab and training. I can't think of a thing he gave back.

Agree. Best of luck my ass. If you ain't with us, you're against us. I don't wish him ill, but neither do I wish him well. Don't know him, don't care. Unless one knows the kid, it's 100% disingenuous to wish him well in this kind of situation. It's a total throwaway line that means nothing.

I like this thread and the concept of this thread. Downvotes to anyone arguing unpopular takes.

Lucky Charms are tough to beat, being magically delicious and all. Another fav of mine from back in the day was:

On a side note, we have a guy guy working in the office from Ireland who has earned the nickname "Lucky Charms."

I wish the best for the American people in general, and for the world, but to take it to the level of specific individuals I don't know and never met doesn't work for me. Personal preference I suppose. I don't, for example, wish the "best" for Shea Patterson. Same for Sirhan Sirhan.
