MEMBER SINCE   November 02, 2012

Lifelong Ohio State fan. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I now live in Florida but O-H-I-O is home. I was raised on my grandfather's Scioto County farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd like to be treated; 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest childhood memories is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas when I was 5 while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I hate TTUN. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Mark May sucks. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

I recently rewatched the 1987 Cotton Bowl win over Texas A&M. I hadnt watched that game since I watched it live on TV. That was a freaking home game for A&M and we still kicked their ass.

I cant find it online but I saw a meme graph on Facebook that showed a sharp increase in booze sales and a sharp decrease in the birth rate (from parents stuck at home with their own kids). I'd believe that to be true (and funny).

That looks like something from The Dark Knight where Batman used people's cell phones to find the Joker. That is just crazy to see. Im out in Tampa on the opposite coast and we arent considered a spring break haven thank God.

As much as I want to see OSU play and how much it would SUCK if we lost a season I think it is almost guaranteed CFB will be affected. Best case scenario right now is CFB plays a shortened season with the possibility of no postseason (in the event there is a second wave when the weather cools down). I posted something on this yesterday how no school president or administration is going to risk putting kids on campus unless they are 100% sure it's safe and it may not be safe again until 2021.

And yes, I think if the season is lost Fields will never suit up for us again. That's why I hope AT LEAST that if the season is lost that the NCAA will let players meet up with coaches or work out privately. The obvious thing is Stroud and Miller learn as much as they can from Fields because we need a starting QB for 2021 regardless. I hope the NCAA grants an extra year of eligibility of everyone that wants it too. Jonathan Cooper could be a 6th year senior starter.

Glad you are getting checked. I think itll be important to get checked to see if anyone ever had the virus but didnt have symptoms too. Knowing you have the antibodies for it is good peace of mind. Knowing youve never had it can make us work harder to stay healthy.

I didnt use to like this guy but he's grown on me. Steve N Seagulls playing modern rock songs bluegrass style. They all are extremely talented and the songs a pretty good. My favorite is their rendition of Van Halen's Panama.

Pro sports will continue albeit likely with no fans or limited number of fans at first. NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL all could make it work. College sports are a different matter. No school president or administrator is going to willingly put their students in danger of mass infection by bringing kids back to campuses until they feel it's safe to do so. They are going to wait as long as they have to and even if students do go back to campus I could see schools still suspending sports as a precaution. There is a huge liability issue there and an even bigger enrollment issue. Students come back to campus too soon and get infected at a football game guess who the parents are going to sue? And guess who are going to start dropping out?

is your 11W handle named for the beer or because you live/are from that area? First time I had Burning River Pale Ale was at a Cavs game in 1994 IIRC.

Those great bands of the early to mid 1960s inspired and influenced almost every legendary act of the following 25 years. The Animals inspired Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen and played a huge role in the "British Invasion" of rock music to the US. The Yardbirds played a key role in the formation of Led Zeppelin. The Young Rascals inspired everyone from Marvin Gaye to Ray Charles to the entire Blues movement. Sly & the Family Stone inspired Parliament Funkadelic and Prince. The Doors inspired Iggy Pop, The Smiths, and Joy Division. Great documentary. Thank you for sharing :)

All I could muster when I saw Zeke break it was "Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo" at the top of my lungs. It was a mix of shock and "OMG we're going to win" and "run like your life depends on it" with a little cathartic yelling. Ok, a lot of cathartic yelling.
