I watch at home these days, but last time I traveled on a game weekend, I watched at The Old Pro in Palo Alto. Very Pro-Buckeye and friendly people.

Also cool, and not quite that early is to get in the stadium as the band marches over from St. John, then hang out in the north concourse near the top of the ramp and watch the band when they first come in. It is a spectacle worth seeing.

It could be different now, but my friend I mentioned above could go to ANY practice. For example, he took me to the practice the day before they played ND (in 95) and we watched them walk through the entire scripted playbook for the start of the game. 

My friend (he quit long enough ago that I don't think he will mind me saying) was an 'athletic committeeman.' It was a volunteer position whereby he was the eyes and ears with HS coaches and players in the area. During peak recruiting times, he was in daily contact with members of the staff. Every time I went to practice with him, the head coach (Bruce, Cooper, Tressel) would greet us in person and chat for a moment, as did several other staff members. I know there were dozens of other people like him, that specialized in their own city/region.

Just because a man donates money or even time to good causes, does not make that man a good person. Sort of like the old saying, "a man who is nice to you, but mean to the waiter, is not a nice person."

I have never lived there, but I have always thought the Hinkley area would be a good place to live. It has great natural beauty, is just minutes from Cleveland's SW suburbs including the airport, 1/2 hour to downtown, and easy access to I-71, I-77, I-271, and the turnpike.

EDIT: I think Hinkley feeds the Highland School District (Medina County).

I attended Mt. Union and have degrees from the University of Akron and Kent State University. Still I only have Ohio State gear, except for one T-Shirt...the UC - Santa Cruz shirt like Vincent Vega wore in Pulp Fiction. One of my favorite movies, and UC Santa Cruz is one of the coolest campuses I've ever visited.

Sorry, I didn't check this thread for a while. If I recall, there are only about 4 or 5 spaces for the existing building. The rest belongs to whoever owns what was the Holiday Inn (I'm thinking the university owns that now).

There's a memory. Someone bringing a new net to the school playground basketball court and two guys holding up a third while he put the new net on the hoop.

They don't have nearly enough land for parking for a food/beverage business.

I was, at one time, a certified "radon scientist" which meant that I took classes and understood how to use the various pieces of equipment that measure radon. 

I firmly believe that the 4+ = remediation is indeed a scam, and in fact, I tested my own home at the time. I was at about 5 ppm and did nothing to remediate even though we use part of our basement as a living area.

FWIW, the biggest benefit to remediation is that it reverses the pressure difference between your basement and the ground. This can actually help reduce humidity in your basement

QB gets hit just after he begins his forward throwing motion. He is on his own 43. Ball lands on his own 40. Incomplete pass.
