  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Jersey - "There are many different influenza viruses that circulate every year. An influenza vaccine is made to protect against the three or four influenza viruses that research suggests will be most common." - the CDC  So it's a well educated guess as to which 3-4 specific viruses to innoculate against every year, and some years are better guesses than other years, as you have to manufacture and innoculate long before the season. 

Sometime in 2020 we will have a vaccine for this corona virus that will be specific, then this all goes away.....until a different virulent virus shows up. 

Stay Safe Buckeyes!

Summer classes start in a month, and Ohio is in 'Stay at Home" status until at least just days before that. For eveyone's planning, they had to say online only for summer. It's Way too early to make any determinations about how things will be in June or July let alone August. I am going to remain optimistic that Summer brings a return to a new normal and we all can have football come September.  

Stay Safe Buckeyes!

There’s a flag. It is, rather infamously, a bit late and for defensive pass interference on Sharpe. Fouts hates it. Looks bang-bang to me. Without the benefit of replay I could see how you might call it in real time, but boy, it takes some stones to do it. Buckeyes live to see a fresh set of downs.

It's the only sports subscription I have, and I find it to be a worthy expense. It can't touch 11W for Buckeye coverage, but they cover all the sports across the country with dedicated writers. I'm not sure where else I'd turn for national sports coverage that is as well written and not just off "the wire".
