As soon as I put the tyke down, the Wife and I have a "date" to watch Red 2. I'm hoping it is as entertaining as the first one.

and their work network is configured for NAT or PAT (which many larger companies are), then they could be using a different IP almost every day (theoretically). An IP ban is not a magic elixir.

this was the Avatar I started with, but when I moved from Cleveland, I wanted to change my username because it had Cleveland as part of it. Plus, I have watched Michigan games with this deer over my shoulder since 1988 or so. Lastly, I don't want to make it so obvious for people. I know none of these are really excellent reasons, however, together they have convinced me to retain the status quo.
But, I did snag that picture from you for future use, in case I change my mind. Which I may, because change is good.

that *in general* people with children, especially those with children of competitive age are going to be a little older, and for the most part will have more life experience which tempers their emotion in regards to the outcome of a game. I'm a fairly new parent (2 years) but my agony over wins and losses began to wane before he was born, due to other life events which put things in perspective, and that has only increased since the birth of my son.

My Wife works "somewhere" in Ohio state government and she knew this was coming ahead of time. She sent me an advance copy of the letter along with her comment ("eye roll" I believe, even though she's an OSU alum). They wanted the Lieutenant Governor to sign off on this, and her name is Mary (so, the letter M thing would be especially ridiculous). I can't believe they went through with it

|1 week 4 days ago||1997 for me as well||
I was a student at Bowling Green and living in my fraternity house. Since it was BG, most everyone had another favorite team, and since it was Ohio, most were fans of Ohio State.
For the game, all the OSU fans decided to have a gathering at an off campus location, so I was essentially alone in the house. When the game was over and the OSU fans started trickling in, I could hear them shouting in frustration and slamming doors...I couldn't help myself. I decided to serenade them with "The Victors" whilst running through the halls.
This ended with me at the bottom of a stairwell getting "beaten" by an angry mob. It was totally worth it.

|2 weeks 11 hours ago||the good news is||
those of us who were actually there have had our brains pickled by alcohol and our memories blurred by children, which accelerate the aging process.

It's a no lose situation, you guys
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||one staple play||
I remember from 1997 was one of those "levels" plays. Griese would roll out to the right side of the line, Howard or Floyd would run an out to the flat, Tuman would run up the seam and Mr. Woodson (or Tai Streets) would run a deep crossing route. Seemed like it worked every time
(NOTE: 1997 was 16 years ago, and I have lost a great many brain cells in the interim due to alcohol consumption and parenthood. if I'm not remembering things hyper-specifically, please forgive me)
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Tim Couch||

|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Kyrie and Drummond...||
just wow. I think Chris Grant has "smartest guy in the room" syndrome. The Waiters pick was definitely a WTF moment. He came on towards the end of last season, but we are back to WTF this season. I stand behind the TT pick. He may not have the highest ceiling in the world, but he is a solid double double guy and his shooting really has improved since he switched his shooting hand.
And Mike Brown seems like a really good guy and all, but re-hring him is yet another WTF moment.

I don't know why people think they have to conclude something immediately. I know why the media tries to sell stories to the public (because they need jobs and they like making money), but I don't know why people are so quick to believe what they see on tv is 100% accurate and feel free to jump to conclusions accordingly.
Also, ESPN is now showing a quote allegedly from a Tallahassee PD officer to Winston's accuser from 11 moths ago telling her something to the effect of "Tallahassee is a big football town. If you make an accusation you, your family and your life are going to be raked over the coas" and presenting it in such a way as to convince their audience this is evidence of impropriety. Now, it could be exactly that. Or it could have been an officer making sure the victim knew exactly what they were in for as far as the court of public opinion goes. The one thing I am certain of is that ESPN is only reporting it to help their ratings, which makes me look at the report with a jaundiced eye.
I have no opinion on the case, because I know essentially nothing about it. All I'm saying is people shouldnt let the media make their minds up for them.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I remember this game||
and thought it was a Super Bowl preview. Browns went 12-4 that year. That was the last time the Browns won 12 games.

I agree with what someone said above...it seems more a product of the plays being called not taking into account what our line can and cannot do. Also, I think this weekend gave us a little more insight on what "could" be possible when we utilize backs that are able to hit a hole (however small) quickly and not bouncebouncebounce
|2 weeks 4 days ago||agreed||
thats the coolest piece of furniture I have seen in a long time
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I never said they were going to win||
I merely cited a precedent for a similar scenario (unranked 4 loss Michigan team, top 5 ranked OSU team), and said "never say die".

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Black is on their official color scheme||
I got into a fight with someone in 9th grade (well, I was defending myself from upperclassmen) and I asked one of them if he got his hat from the Dollar store reject bin because it was black with a red "o", and black is not one of their colors. As they were flushing my Block M fitted hat down the toilet, they politely explained how black is apparently part of the official color scheme.

Check out this quote, from Mike Lombardi (who is now the Browns "GM")
(and I hate to say anything because I know what I don't know, but when I watch football and feel like I'm getting trolled because no one could possibly be so unwilling to adapt, I just wonder...oh well.)

It is the beginning of November and there is more hope for the Browns to make the playoffs than for the Wolverines to contend for (at least a share of) a Big Ten title. Literally has not happened since the 60's.

the referee is Dave Witvoet. He's the guy who says "The down remains first". He has been the referee at a number of painful Michigan losses (first time I remember him ruining a Saturday was in 2001 at UCLA). It seems as though every time his crew is working the game, it ends in a loss or a win that was more difficult than it should have been.
Does anyone know where you can find data about referee assignments?

All during dinner people kept "stopping by" my table to let me know things were not going so well for Michigan. By the time the 4th quarter rolled around, most of us were in the bar (smoking) area and I gave the bartender $20 to keep the game on, over the protests of a handful of OSU fans.
Such a great night.

if they did it like the the old school "battle of the network stars" format, have a 100M dash, some passing drills where there are targets in the beds of pickup trucks speeding across the field, obstacle courses, guys wrestling in those fake sumo suits, etc, that'd be awesome.
If they're going down this road (which is at least better than it was) they should go all the way, make it flag football, but then make all 11 guys eligible receivers, and maybe tweak a rule so a backward lateral that is fumbled is simply considered a dead ball. It'd be kind of crazy, but somewheat entertaining.
All that being said, the last time I watched the Pro-Bowl was roughly 1986.

a Taylormade R1. First time ever I am at the forefront of technology. I had a sizable Golf Galaxy store credit from winning an outing, so I decided why not? Found it used for $225. Love the adjustable loft feature. I'm hoping to go play it today.
Also, the RBZ 3 wood is no joke. When they say it adds 15 yards, they are not kidding. In fact, the reason I had to get a new driver is because I was hitting the RBZ 3 wood farther than my old driver.
Ok, this is starting to sound like a commercial...my irons are older Cobras (I love them), and I'm putting with a Odyssey White Ice blade. I may have to switch that up at some point, because the insert seems a bit marshmallowy on longer putts.
The only real advice I'd have for someone is to check out the used club market both online and at retailers like GG and Golfsmith. It really has saved me hundreds of dollars over the last 8-10 years.
Like you, I love my 7 iron. I can hit any shot from 170 and in with it.
And, on a course with a slope in the 120's I'm about a bogey golfer. Funny thing is, whether I play once (these days) or 15 times in a summer (before children), I'm the same. Probably because I have had the same swing since I was 7.

I'm sure that intensity has helped him become an excellent coach, and I'm sure he isn't out to "Win friends and influence people" so, take it fwiw. Also, that was over a decade ago, perhaps he has mellowed some since then.

This one is a bit longer, but my Father loved it, and he's dead, and it was just Father's day, so I'm telling it:
One day a duck walks into a bar and hops up on a barstool. He asks the Bartender, "you got any grapes?" the Bartender says no, so the duck hops down and goes on his way. Next day, Duck walks back into the bar, hops up on the stool and again asks the bartender if they have any grapes. The Bartender says, "No we didnt have any grapes yesterday, and we dont have any grapes today This is a bar. We serve beer and liquor. We dont have any f-ing grapes". The duck hops down off the stool and leaves.
This goes on every day for a week until finally the Bartender loses his patience. On the 7th day, when the duck asks the bartender if he has any grapes, the bartender grabs the duck by the neck and carries him out to the parking lot. In the lot he shoves the duck's face into a telephone pole and says, "look, i told you we dont have any grapes. If you come in here and ask me for grapes one more f-ing time, I'm going to nail your f-ing bill to this f-ing pole. Get the hell out of here"
The duck leaves, but returns to the bar after a couple of days. He hops up on the stool and proceeds to ask the bartender, "You got any nails?" and the bartender says, "No" so the duck says " Well, in that case, you got any grapes?"

my Wife is an OSU alum. She also knows a few Trustees of Ohio State (as in, she knows them on a first name basis). They are tired of him being an embarrassment in the national media. His job is not to be a lightning rod for the University. However, his job description does require him to have good enough discretion to know when NOT to say something that could potentially lead to negative publicity for the university. He has failed to do so on a number of occassions.

I'm pretty sure he was serious. I normally wouldn't care but that seems like a helluva thing for a guy running a pop culture website (and also as someone who has appointed himself a pop cuture guru for years) to admit.
Or maybe Im the only one who finds that odd/interesting

thats pretty close to home. From what I've read or seen, he was supposedly, quiet, normal, and gave no one the impression there was something amiss. The whole this is simply astonishing.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||the only reason||
is because I didnt want it to come off like I was making fun of the guy, because thats the last thing he deserves. But yes, his interview is one for the archives, for certain

I remember that...somehow...the mid 90s were a bit fuzzy...wasn't he homeless or something? (or at least looked like it)

Browns are taking Eifert at 6, IF Jordan and Milliner are both gone (which I think they will be). They will try to trade back, wont find a partner, and will end up taking Eifert.
Chances are I'll be wrong, but if I end up being right, I'll look like a genius

If it were me (which is my way of saying I have no idea if this is the "right" or "wrong" way to go about it, only my opinion of what I would do) I would avoid bringing up OSU all together. Ask him how he's doing at Akron, what he thought of his work for the Colts, basically anything but OSU. The best revenge is living well, and further by asking him about his life since then you are subtly reminding him he isn't as OSU anymore.
Again, thats just me. I don't figure he's going to say "Oh yeah, I had my brother handing out wads of cash like it was lunch" and "yeah, we circumvented every rule we could"...I mean, unless you go all Jack Burns and inject him with sodium pentathol in the bathroom.

my Uncle Buck had to stay with us for a week when my Parents had to leave town because my Grandfather was dying. One night, his horse fixer was in town and he was going to take my twin sister and I to the track with him. However, my older sister was on a date with her boyfriend Bug, and Uncle Buck knew that he couldn't take us to the track for his big score while my sister was in danger of being deflowered.
That's how my Uncle Buck taught me family is more important than gambling.

perhaps they could call it "way OT"? Hmm...if only someone had noted that this was "way OT" in the thread title, so that people who dont appreciate OT threads could somehow know about it before hand and therefore not click on it.

you've been registered for three weeks and you think it's wise to tell people how to do things?
Something something about how it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool rather than speak and remove all doubt.
I'm sure if the mods deem this not board worthy they'll get their mod on. Why worry about it yourself?

I dont even have Michigan making the sweet 16 on any of my brackets. I refuse to pontificate how they might do, for fear that my hubris may cause the Sports Gods to seek sweet vengeance for my audacity. I hope my brackets blow up. I'm more than willing to lose $5 a piece and take one for the team in order to gain the favor of the Sports Gods who abhor presumptuousness.
|37 weeks 2 days ago||Great read, Ace!||

isn't it NASCAR season? Why do they even care?
|37 weeks 4 days ago||he is charged||
with felony possession (5th degree felony) for having over 100 grams. In Ohio you can have up to 100 grams in one bag and it is considered "personal use" which is a class 6 misdemeanor. He is also charged with trafficking (4th degree felony) because the pound was in separate bags. I didn't see empty bags in the picture, but if they were present, then they could attach a "possession of criminal tools" charge as well. Had everything been in one bag, it would have been felony possession only. Or that's what I heard on a documentary on PBS.
Since they smelled burnt weed, but he didn't get a drug paraphenalia charge, Im going to assume he was toking a joint or a blunt.

Hopslam. Been hiding it in a cool dark place. I figure tonight is as good a night as any.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||I live in Gahanna||
which is about 15 minutes northeast of downtown. Money magazine ranked in as one of the 100 best places to live in 2008, I believe. Where, an hour north, will you be working? Mansfield?
The northwest suburbs are the more "ritzy" places to live (such as Upper Arlington, Dublin and Powell), but traffic on that side of town rush hour is absolutely horrendous, which is why my Wife and I decided to live on the Northeast side of town. Westerville is more north/central, but it is also a nice suburb as well.
As far as the city itself, it's really not that bad. The farther you are from OSU campus, the less likely you are to run into the insane Bucknuts. You can get anywhere from anywhere in 20 minutes or less. Columbus is a big test market due to its "whitebrededness" so many corporations open test locations here, so you can find almost any chain restaurant that exists. There are a number of good golf courses nearby as well (if you are so inclined). There are 2 "Lifestyle centers" (does anyone remember malls, sheesh Im old) that may not rival what you can likely find in LA, but they wont leave you wanting either. You can get pretty much anything you want here, except good seafood.
Also, you may want to look into Delaware county, which is the county directly north of Franklin (which Columbus is located in). Cities to look at in Delaware county include Delaware (so creative!), Sunbury, and Powell to name a few. Delaware county has the highest median income in the state and it is also the fastest growing county in the state both in terms of poulation and income.
If you have any other specific questions, Id be happy to help.

|39 weeks 4 days ago||I care about hex codes||
Since it is possible now to use hex codes to create paint colors. This will come in handy for my son's room. When I was 10, my Parents and I spent 3 hours in the hardware store comparing paint chips to the Michigan sweatshirt I was wearing. So, thank you for saving me a Saturday afternoon sometime in the future.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||you got that right||
when you lose say nothing. When you win say less. Drives them crazy. They totally want you to be a smug, arrogant s.o.b. so they can still hate you, but you just smile, and say, "yeah great game. Just glad the better team won"
Drives buckeyes nuts. I will admit though, walking around the office building with a sh*t eating grin on your face is completely acceptable.
Also- surreptitiously crop dusting their cubicle and making a graceful exit before they know what hit them is also encouraged. Or if they have an office, drop the hammer, and then as you walk out, close the door behind you.
yup, I'm 35 and act like I'm 15

It's the only style Michigan hat I've ever had (4 and counting). I hope I never have to buy another design. If they want to get rid of the split M (or any of the others) thats fine, but to say that this specific logo is no longer acceptable is incomprehensible to be.
The hat on my avatar was purchased 11 years ago. I have been reluctant to buy a new one because the new ones have the larger New Era logo on the side, and even that is too much to me. It's a personal choice, and if people like the fatter M, then thats wonderful, but I want to wear a plain "Bo" style hat until I die, thank you very much

gone are the days of worrying about such trifles as accuracy. The most important thing now is being "first" with something. If you end up being wrong, well, there is so much other flotsam and jetsam out there, any inaccuracies get lost in the wash.
A sad state of affairs. On the bright side, it has greatly increased the effectiveness of my internal BS filter.

at least they did something this offseason. Now, they might have a wind farm on their hands with Reynolds, Stubbs, Bourne and Swisher, but thats ok, because there are 3 or 4 wind turbines along I-90, and they're going to need to power them somehow.
No big plans for the weekend. Making a day trip from Columbus to Cleveland.
I have not met any MGoBloggers in real life. I wear my Muppets shirt proudly around Columbus, but have yet to be approached by anyone who knows what it is.
