We're likely in regardless.
Completely different players and positions. It'll fall on Young and LeDee.
What makes you think he was an idiot? Pretty big assumption there.
Yes sir! Really like those guys, and Suwanee has long been on my list to check out. It's just so damn far......
Nice, Calgary. I'm a guy who was steeped in classic rock and toured with the Grateful Dead before moving on to bluegrass. Much to my surprise, I've caught a few DJ acts that I really dig. In particular, Grammatik blew me away. And I wasn't the oldest guy there!
Gray - I'd love to hear those recommendations, particularly in the jazz realm. I used to be a regular NOLA Jazz Fest attendee, and got exposed to a ton of artists in small tents at the Fairgrounds and in clubs around town. I feel like I've lost some of that, though. Please fire away!
Brohio is correct. Of course, going to live shows is the best way to support an artist.
Thanks to all the great suggestions. Keep 'em coming - I'll be revisiting this thread over the coming weeks to expand my listening.
I'll assume that you're either being facetious, or that you're too lazy to explore.
Thank you, Mastro! These are all new to me, and I can't wait to dig in. Your descriptions are fantastic. On boygenius - I've definitely listened to them. That's a whole helluva lot of talent on one stage.....
A rapper from Utah? Is that even legal? Can't wait to check him out.....
Great list. I love Vulfbeck. Saw Colter Wall last summer - the guy is early 20s going on his early 60s. He's already lived a life if his voice is any measure.
Agree that they're not phenom-level, but I'll take Lighty, Buford, Daequon Cook and Evan Turner type of freshman production.
So much so that his son is playing baseball at UC.
I remember January 1994, my last year in school, quite well. Temps hit -22, which still stands as an all-time cold temp in Columbus. We lived in a basically non-insulated seven bedroom place on Northwood and Lane. That was freaking cold, and the university did cancel classes. But we didn't petition for it. Or even really care much.
Yep. I don't get Autzen on there either. It is loud, though. If you want to go with a newer stadium, Sonny Lubick Field (Colorado State) is pretty damn nice - I like it much better than TCF (Minnesota). And, Nippert Stadium is a classic - I've enjoyed the Cincy games I've been to.
I'm having trouble with that too, but when you look at the fit, it does make good sense.
I might be wrong, but I expect Mapfre to continue to host OHSAA finals. From the renderings released yesterday, it appears that Mapfre will be the centerpiece of a new sports park.
I love the idea of a sports park there - gets rid of some of the sea of surface parking and creates a longterm community amenity. Most MLS teams are building significant practice facilities, and nearly all of them - even if the team plays downtown - are in the suburbs or exurbs. This keeps the team practicing near what (I hope) will be a downtown stadium and it gives a huge boost to that part of the city.
If it wasn't a political statement, he repeated a number of Tweets by our Commander-In-Chief.
You forgot 'FAKE NEWS!!!' in your rant, Marty.
I'm no fan of Zach Smith. At all. But this doesn't pass the smell test, especially considering the strident, non-ambiguous denials by the players. McMurphy is a dirtbag (and whoever is feeding him info is even more of a dirtbag).
You realize that college basketball teams graduate players, and their chemistry changes from year to year, right? UC has two players from last year in the NBA, and another playing overseas, so it's no surprise that they're unranked. And, they never look very good - they play such intense defense and are often lacking on the other end of the court. In the end, they'll still get their 25 wins and sneak into the tourney, as always, and this win will be great for our profile.
