Greetings Toledobucknut. I was born in east Toledo and raised in Oregon, Ohio, way out in the country. Great place to grow up. That area used to have some great Italian, Hungarian and German restaurants but my parents divorced and mom moved us to Florida in 1972. Yes, I am that old. Are any of those places left up there? Haven't been up there in years but I have a large family still in the area. Fond memories of great Italian food/pizza in Toledo. BTW, I googled Tony Packo's hot dogs. Good to see they are still on Front Street next to the river.

Good luck to the Lady Bucks gymnasts. Some of the best athletes in any sport.

Well up until a few years ago, my land line, cable and internet were priced reasonably in a bundle. Then the company sold out and prices have gone through the roof. Btw, i am currently looking for an old 1950's- 1960's rotary dial wall mount phone to hook up in my house. They are making a comeback. I have an antique dealer looking for one for me. Great conversation piece, right?

Also, I do have two cell phones so I'm not relying on land line only.

I am in the process. My son in law and i are about to take the necessary steps. TV antenna for local stations ( I still have an old 35 ft. antenna tower), Spectrum internet and HULU or YouTube TV. Gonna disconnect the old land line phone too. Nothing but telemarketers anyway. My cable bill is often bigger than my power bill. This is crazy.

Look at the graph. Michigan and South Carolina hate Ohio which is expected. But, Ohio, along with Tennessee, hates Kentucky the most per the poll. Why Kentucky and not Michigan? Why does Alaska hate Texas? Odd results IMO.

In 1984, Brigham Young (BYU), went 13-0 and won the national title. In 1985, they went 11-3 and finished 16th in the final AP poll. That was quite a drop in one year. Just for comparison.

LSU caught Bama in an odd year IMO. But, Joe Burrow will be very difficult to replace. Next season will be interesting. I wonder how the Tigers will be ranked in the preseason. They get Texas, Bama and South Carolina at home. Florida, Auburn and ATM away.

As you grow older your perspective changes on almost everything. It's just the natural order of things. Kind of like a reality "reset", so to speak. You like songs you used to hate, food tastes change and your memories of certain things aren't always historically accurate. Looking at things through the prism of age is supposed to make a person wiser and more realistic. Experience is the best teacher.

Joe Burrow sounds like a fun guy with a streak of confidence. You earned it young man, enjoy yourself.

The Hall of Fame has some members who don't really belong and others who should have been in years ago. Never been a 100% fan of it.

That Amazon driver position sounds like a lose/lose for the drivers at times. I dealt with many delivery drivers over the years and it seems to stay stressful. I guess I'm just too old. We are in an age of we need it now, now, NOW! Patience is a lost virtue IMO.

Agree UFest57. I retired a couple of years ago with 34 years in material management and inventory control at an electric power utility. Things are happening faster every year in the electronic and robotic fields. There are many areas where people are being replaced by electronic devices.

Computers and robots don't need pay, benefits or time off. They work 24-7-365 with mostly minimal maintenance or repair. I still believe the work force will adjust because people adapt, but it's changing so fast now.

I wouldn't call it satisfying to me. More like relief from more clemson off season hyperbole. Also, an Ohio guy now holds all these records. Mixed feelings for me. He just had the wrong jersey on but that's football.

Now I know how TTUN fans must have felt in 2002 when we won a title with michigan born Craig Krenzel.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

I tuned in twice to check the score. Glad Burrow beat them but it's still an SEC title, albeit with a Ohio boy at QB. I am very glad clemson got beat handily but regret and disgust are still with me. Just a weird way to end the season. I hope JB breaks records with the Bengals. I might actually watch more NFL games if he ends up back in the Buckeye State playing again. Don't screw this up Cincinnati.
