Is it weird if TBDBITL does a Tchaikovsky themed show, with the 1812 overture (celebrating the defeat of the Grand Army of France in 1812) right after doing Script Ohio with Le Regiment (celebrating France's revolutionary era armies, which of course included Napoleon's Grand Army)?

And, did you know it's a different Tree every year?  The tryout process is compete to become the mascot, then the previous year's mascot builds your tree.

My dad was the head groundkeeper for the Reds during Pete's manager run, and he has a ton of signed baseballs and pictures with Pete.  I apparently met him when I was 2, although the only memory I have of that time is when I was 3 or 4, Marge Schott gave me a piece of bubble gum from a jar on her desk.

My mom was pregnant with me during that time, and had tickets with her mom and sister to those games.  He broke the record on her birthday, and I was "technically" there for it.

I understand what he did was wrong, but seeing all these juicers get into the HOF, I can't really see the need to keep him out.  And honestly, the bad blood, and bullshit that the Commissioners have put him through throughout the years (even though I know it's his own fault), have made my mind up to never, ever go to Cooperstown, NY.

The issue here is that they very well may have had sex, but the issue of consent and of any other evidence included in the rape kit are what make that act into a criminal one.  That's why it's such a complicated process to prosecute, since you do have to prove a lack of consent in order to satisfy mens rea (and it also helps make the charge's validity pass the reasonable doubt standard to the jury).

Comment 26 Apr 2017

The problem is that it has been reported the accuser declined to be interviewed by police on the night she took the rape kit, so it wouldn't help Conley to do his interviews until she does hers, and the Cleveland PD needs to interview the other two people in the room (personally, although IANAL or a cop, I'd interview those two first, then use those interviews to strengthen the questioning of Conley).

Larry Johnson totally sold him on OSU Football being the best path to the FBI with two words:  "Johnny Utah"

Thanks for bringing up this point.  I hadn't seriously considered it, but you are probably right.  It gets their foot in the door in a big way, considering how much folks in Columbus and Central Ohio will follow the lead of OSU in contracting (since they can see how well said contractor performs in real life, dealing with an advanced bureaucracy)

I have to wonder if it's so they can access A) the baby experimental Nuclear Reactor on west campus for research they aren't allowed to do in France, and B) access to a large supply of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers to staff their operations in the U.S. if they are planning on being a new major utility player.
