I saw him last night my friends and I were saying the same thing.  He made quick work of those he faced.  2k's and a lazy fly out to third.  Even though it would be a tough at bat, I think that it would still be pretty cool to to go up against one the best.

Indeed.  He needed that for sure.  Hopefully he can remain healthy for the remainder..

Took an ambien once and had a similar situation.  Kitchen was a mess and it would appear that I took a nachos de grande to bed with me.  Aaand that was the last time I took an ambien.

I generally call on Uber, but there are certainly pros for calling a taxi.  Particularly when I am leaving an event like a concert.  With Uber you have to deal with the demand of others at the same event and often surcharge prices.  I generally call a taxi in these cases and have been picked up in minutes.  The notion of taxis being cash only simply isn't true, or at least in my recent experience.  I have taken Taxi's - 5 or so this year and all have taken card.  More or less.. 6 in one and half dozen in the other..

"Why is the carpet all wet Todd?"  "I don't know Margo.."

Gets me every time

Comment 19 Jul 2017

Indeed, my friend! 

Recently speaking with someone who was Columbus Police during Woody's tenure and he told me about how he and his partners would take players who were having a little too much fun straight to Woody's hours rather than the 'drunk tank.'  Endless stair runs ensue (like hours) to the point where repeat offenders asked for the 'drunk tank.'  

PS just got back from a 14 day Hawaiian vacay - Kauai and Maui.  All I can say is.. unbelievable.

Even though I thought this was a safe space (I am thinking Will Farrell in Old School) allow me to clarify a few things, admittedly there may have been some ambiguity in my comment.. 

Don't OH me outside of game day.  Actually, its should only be reserved for inside The Shoe..

Was referring to JTB, not the Vest. 

And I think people are willfully ignorant when it comes to WWH entire legacy.

 Band isnt as loud as I remember.  I love the band

Me too.  This is a gripe I also have.  After paying nice coin for a ticket to the game we should be entertained by the band during TV commercial breaks, instead we are forced to listen / watch commercials on the giant screen.... grrr 

Comment 18 Jul 2017

OH-IO is indeed cringe worthy.

JT is just so... ordinary.

The hubris among a vast majority of fans is annoying. 

Stop booing at home games.

In 2012, I left a family party right before Smooth Jazz KG took field against Purdue.  Turned of my phone, rode home in silence and was overwhelmed with voicemails when I finally powered back on the next day. 

Is Woody off limits here.. ?

Comment 21 Jun 2017

I saw WIlco maybe 4-5 years ago at the LC and mid-song Tweedy stops and ask a couple to stop dancing a particular way.. It was "distracting."  I was pretty shocked.. I can get down with Wilco, but Tweedy's impertinence can be tiresome.

Saw Ryan Adams most recently last year and I had a great time.  After song three or so, shortly after being heckled, he went into an impromptu jam about the heckler and it was fantastic.

I am with you, however, on the talking / political speak.  Just jam out - this is why we are here..    

Comment 20 Jun 2017

:-) = my mood since the Twins series.  Loving what these guys have been doing lately.  Heres to Tomlin keeping it rolling tonight..  

Comment 09 Jun 2017

I would think Matta takes some time to be with family and heal up.  Listening to Matta describe how much pain he felt after games - I cant imagine he would jump right back into that.  I am also not sure if taking another job has any impact on his contract with tOSU, but that would add another element to consider.

I am a fan of the Uncharted series they are super fun games to play. 

Comment 25 May 2017

Good to know, thanks.  Ill definitely check it out.  I have a co worker shares your interest in Dark Souls and they have suggested I check it out.  Of course, it comes with a warning..

I know we may be a ways out for God of War, but that looks like it could be a great one. 

Comment 25 May 2017

I am definitely excited about Red Dead 2 - I really enjoyed the first one.  I picked up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim greatest hits edition a few months ago (admittedly incredibly late to the party) and that has consumed ALL of my gaming time as of late.  I have had my eye on Horizon Zero Dawn and was excited about what I read, so that may be next up on my list.  Has anyone checked that out?

Comment 24 May 2017

Agreed.  Unfortunately, Tomlin doesn't have the stuff to make too many mistakes.  He can mix it up really well and when he has command he's tough.  I've honestly wondered if Salazar would benefit from a stint in Columbus. 

Comment 23 May 2017

Headed down to Cincy tonight for the game.. Anyone else making the trip? I got the first round.... Roll Tribe!
