Mad River had the Alpine Slide back in the early 80s. It was essentially a cement bobsled run, and you sat on a little cart with a stick you used as a brake that was positioned right in the middle. I bought a three pack, ride down once, kissed the ground once I got off the death trap, and left without taking the other two suicide attempts.

You know what, I'll admit it...I want this season for me. Every year, for as long as I can remember, I looked forward to football in the fall. I love it when the world begins to cool and the days get shorter and the leaves are showing their true colors. I love pumpkin everything and candy and Thanksgiving. I love bowl games and bitter rivalries and painful losses because feeling pain means I'm emotionally invested. Some of my most cherished memories are that of me and my dad watching The Game together, knowing that the entire state of Ohio was somewhere watching it with their loved ones. 

I don't want anyone to get sick, and I am very well aware that the players and coaches are the ones who put in the blood, sweat and tears for this season, not me. But I will allow myself this one moment of selfishness, because I want this season for my entertainment and because it is the only sport that truly owns my heart.

Go Bucks!!

Playing Michigan in week one would actually be nice. While I appreciate the annual de-pantsing of the cooler poopers up north, this version of The Game would have countless unknowns. No game film, limited practice...Michigan will think they will have a chance! And as others have pointed out, what better way to start a weird season than to crush them right at the beginning.
