- 1979: Wrangler to Carter beats Indiana my freshman year
- 1982: SF beats Cincinnati in Super Bowl XVI at the Silver Dome. Epic goal line stand by SF in the 3rd quarter to keep Cincinati out of the end zone on 1st and goal at the 3. The start of the Bill Walsh led 49ers dynasty.
- 2002: OSU & Maurice Clarett holds offf UM 14-9 at The Shoe. My first football game at OSU - I survived (barely). Despite UM losing (and OSU going onto to take the national championship), it was a classic UM/OSU game that was decided on the game's final drive.
- 2000: Friday at the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville KY. Followed the group of Tiger (in his prime) + Jack + Vijay Singh on a 103 degree day.
- 2008: Sunday at the Ryder Cup at Valhalla GC. The USA's only victory since 1999.
- Arrive 2+ hours before kickoff
- Use the public parking garage by Nickels Arcarde, 324 Maynard Street, $8-10/all day
- Walk thru Nickels Arcade for a 1 hour pre-game beer(s) at Ashleys, voted one of the Top 100 Beer Bars in America
- 1 hour before kickoff, walk thru campus down State St and follow the crowds on Hoover to the Stadium. 20-25 minute walk, 1+ miles. The walk will keep you wam and it's a great way to take in the crowds, pre-game festivities and campus.

....everyone went with white shoes except Michigan, Penn State and USC. Even schools like Alabama, Texas and Notre Dame, schools steeped in "old school" football traditions, went with the white shoes trend of that time.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Definitely White Socks....||
....for both Home & Road. I never liked the blue socks - I felt that we lost an important aspect of our traditional uniform (like the black shoes) that distinquished us from everyone else.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Heading down to Reds Opening Day...||
....this afternoon. Pirates @ Reds, First Pitch at 4:10. Cincinnati used to be THE Opening Day event for MLB and is practically a local holiday. They have a pre-game parade that goes thru town that has a decidely All American small town feel. Should be a fun, beer-filled day.

|29 weeks 1 day ago||Agree...||
...I've lived in Cincinnati for 19 years (yikes!), and there's plenty of unnatural Buckeye love going on in the area. Our inner circle of neighborhood friends (~15 couples), almost all born and raised in Cincinnati, are ALL Buckeye Football fans. Curiously, maybe 1/3 actually attended OSU, with the rest going to schools like Dayton, Ohio U and Miami (NTM). All colleges with football teams, yet they are all diehard, Walmart Buckeyes. Attending last week's neighborhood Alabama/OSU party was insufferable. My only saving grace was a palpable curiosity and concern from everyone over HARBAUGH!!
|31 weeks 6 days ago||Tito's, highly recommended...||
....reasonably priced, award-winning and Made in America (Austin, TX)

|35 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed...||
....UM v OSU should consider color-on-color games with their standard uniforms
|36 weeks 7 hours ago||Third this.....||
...decidedly off the Bourbon/Canal Street beaten path, but an easy street car ride to the end of the St Charles line. Great NO-style food at reasonable prices, a deep selection of regional craft beers, and a friendly, enthusiastic and well-educated football crowd.

|48 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed...||
....also the M is trending closer to traditional Maize vs neon adidas Sun
|49 weeks 6 days ago||Indeed....||
Bulleit Frontier Whiskey with a couple cubes - outstanding. Ran out of Sweet Vermouth for my go-to Manhattan, but really enjoying some top shelf KY bourbon in its pure form.

|1 year 17 weeks ago||Couldn't agree more....||
....I really wanted to like adidas, but between the cut/quality of the uniforms, their intepretation of Maize (aka adidas Sun, nee highlighter yellow) and their cookie-cutter approach with our basketball unis, I'm ready to move back to Nike.
Our current basketball uniforms = Wisconsin = NC State = Nebraska, only with different colors + jersey school name/mascot.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Much Appreciated||
Sounds like I need to head over to Mason Whole Foods for lunch on Monday.....

|1 year 36 weeks ago||M has to go back to White Socks!||
Watching last weekend's Tiebreaker and remembering how great our unis loooked with the black shoes and white socks makes me wish for UM to resurrect this traditional, classic look. Like most everyone on the blog, I will always maintain that UM Football has the best uniforms on the planet regardless of sport, but I'm not a big fan of the blue socks/black shoes. Alabama, PSU and USC still sport the white socks which fully preserves all components of their traditional uniform and distinquishes them from everyone else.

An excellent take on a morning tailgate requirement. I trend towards Tito's Vodka (great taste, resonably priced and American-made) + plenty of horsradish (that's where you get your heat/spice, NOT from a hot sauce) + a liberal amount of Worcestershire + garnish of your choice (I like pickled green beans and olives).
