I actually think it’s more that the Reds are stuck with Votto.  They would have traded him to a contending team years ago if not for his Joe Mauer-esque  contract.

This place is a second location of a restaurant that Corso Ventures already has in the Short North, but with Urban’s name and OSU memorabilia slathered all over it to be more attractive to suburbanites.  Urban will have little to no involvement in its operation.

There was a cell that caused sirens to go off that just passed over the OSU campus.  It’s heading east over Gahanna now.  Fortunately, so far, it appears that the Columbus area may have avoided the worst of this system.  Dayton, unfortunately, was not so lucky.  There are reports of “catastrophic damage”.

Uh, I think I recall another B1G team’s fan base expecting to lure Stevens and Donovan when they had a coaching vacancy two years ago (and I don’t mean IU)...

If TTUN fans need a reality check, so do we.

Having watched it again, the episode was extremely well-made, but, the problem with both it, and the entire last two seasons, is that Benioff and Weiss made the decision to cram about 30 episodes of material into 13 episodes.  I understand that both the actors and showrunners wanted to do other things, but HBO was more than happy to give each of the last two seasons the budget for a full 10-episode count, so the decision to rush everything was unnecessary, IMO.  Dany’s heel turn tonight could have been WAY more impactful and tragic if the story had more time to properly build to it.  That said, it would be interesting to see how the fans and critics who are absolutely HATING this turn in the plot (this is by far and away the worst-reviewed episode in the history of the show so far) would have reacted to the Red Wedding if it already hadn’t been spoiled in the books 10 years before.

I’m going to be on a trans-Atlantic flight Sunday night.  I’m hoping that the plane’s Wi-Fi will let me access HBO Go, or I’ll have to wait to watch the episode on Monday night with the rest of Britain (AARGH!).

In other words:  Russia, if you’re listening, I hope that you can find the next episode of Game of Thrones.  I’m sure that you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts.

An inability to understand the importance of a crucial situation?  Wasting an obscene amount of talent?  Must come with the name (sorry, Coop).

To steal a phrase from a t-shirt line, it is Ohio Against the World.  The f’n league is going to do everything to screw you, so you have to win this your damn selves.

Comment 16 Apr 2019

CBJ fans are going to be incensed over the league overturning Atkinson’s PP goal (Would they do that for any other team?), but I think the bigger moment may be Bread not cashing in on a wide-open break to the net.  Stamkos scored shortly after that to make it 2-1.  I’ve got a horrible feeling that that might be the turning point in the entire series.

Not to point out the obvious, but I’m sure the mods would prefer that this conversation take place over at 1st Ohio Battery.  That said, SWEEP THE GOD DAMNED MF’N LEG!!!!  NO MERCY!!  YOU HAVE THE MOUNTAIN DOWN;  DON’T GIVE HIM A MOMENT TO CATCH YOU AND CRUSH YOUR SKULL!!
