09/28/2018 - 9:39am It’s a beautiful fall Friday…

It’s a beautiful fall Friday.  Love having the Ryder Cup on in the morning.

Going to be tough to beat last weekend: Browns win for the first time since Dec 2016; my son’s HS team wins for the first time since Nov 2016; UM destroys Nebraska and the Lions dominate the Patriots on national TV.

Go Blue.  Time to crush another overmatched team.

09/26/2018 - 11:13pm He’s willing to spend any…

He’s willing to spend any amount to get a championship when the greatest player just so happens to be from the area and returns to the franchise.

Without LeBron, Dan’s record is not so great. 

09/24/2018 - 5:52pm It was clearly 2 forward…

It was clearly 2 forward passes as he grab the ball and threw it instead of just knocking it down with an open hand.  

Didnt think it should have been a safety because it didn’t look like the ball was in the end zone.

08/24/2018 - 3:01pm My oldest son is a senior…

My oldest son is a senior and is the starting LT for Westlake.  Team lost all 10 games last year, but has some optimism this year as the offense is loaded with playmakers.  Not sure whether the defense will be able to stop anyone, so I'm expecting lots of high scoring affairs.  We are in one of the best conferences in the State, so our ceiling is probably 4 wins.

Best memory is from 2 seasons ago when Westlake won its first playoff game since 1984 (when John Kolesar was on the team).  Demons won in OT after trailing at the start of 4th quarter 41-14.  

08/17/2018 - 11:46am Amen to that.  Friday nights…

Amen to that.  Friday nights should be spent supporting the local HS.

7 days until my son starts his last season of HS football.

08/07/2018 - 2:56pm My oldest son was turning 2…

My oldest son was turning 2 and since we had recently moved back into the area after living in CA for about 7 years, my wife & I thought it would be a good idea to throw a big party and invite all of the family down from MI to celebrate.  

Lots of worry about whether the food in the fridge would survive and if anybody would be able to bake anything.  Luckily, our power came back on the next day and the relatives’ shortly thereafter.

My son is now about to turn 17 and is deep into 2-a-days and preparing for his senior year.

06/16/2018 - 6:51pm 3 Kids; 2 Boys & 1 girl. …

3 Kids; 2 Boys & 1 girl.  Oldest boy going to be a HS senior.

Weekend baseball tournament in Alliance, OH for 13 year old son.  Good chance to make the finals tomorrow.

Ole Smoky Lemon Drop Moonshine tonight.

Happy Fathers Day.



05/28/2018 - 11:42pm Don’t forget Gerard Gallant.

Vegas coached by a former Red Wing.

05/18/2018 - 10:43pm Congrats.


05/18/2018 - 10:39pm Hyland?


I live about 2 miles away from Sibling Revelry. They have some very good stuff and it’s a nice mellow hangout.

05/18/2018 - 8:49pm Sibling Revelry Blood Brood

Drinking Sibling Revelry Blood Brood.

Weekend Baseball Tournament in Barberton Ohio.

04/02/2018 - 5:48pm PBR

Just finished up a couple tall PBR’s at Dick’s Last Resort on the Riverwalk. Tip-off can’t get here soon enough.

04/02/2018 - 1:21pm South U

Eventually got to South U. Hoping to Celebrate on the Riverwalk tonight. Was lucky enough to get tix through the AD. Son and I drove down Friday and have been having a great time.

04/02/2018 - 11:37am I was a sophomore in South Quad

Some jackass pulled the fire alarm with about a minute and a half left. RA kicked us out of the building. We raced down the street to someone’s friend’s house and we’re able to get there in time to see the final couple of possessions.

03/29/2018 - 2:42pm Driving down tomorrow

Driving down tomorrow with my son. It’s been a long week of waiting. Go Blue!

03/23/2018 - 12:56pm Nebraska certainly didn't deserve a spot.

Nebraska did nothing to desrve a spot in the tourney. Their 13-5 conference record was an illusion based upon a weak Big Ten and an extremely favorable conference scheduke.  Did you think MSU deserved a #1 seed becaues of their 16-2 conference record and only 4 losses on the season? 

03/21/2018 - 11:05am Eliminate the Morris shot

Eliminate the Morris shot because it would have only tied the game.  No way that UM team was going to beat Duke in OT.  He should have passed it for the 3 that could have won the game.

03/08/2018 - 11:04am Would have lost in OT

That shot would have only tied the game.  Should have kicked it out for a 3 and the potential win.

03/04/2018 - 7:02pm Also the only

Also the only team to win a BTT on the East Coast.

02/01/2018 - 4:47pm They really did a number on us in the 70s

I have vivid memories of sitting on the gym floor and watching Death Zones.  Apparently, Seven Oaks was quite notorious for these kind of films and segments 2 & 3 were only supposed to be shown at the middle and high schools levels.  Our principal decided it was a good idea to show the entire thing to kids as young as 5 or 6. 

02/01/2018 - 3:38pm Death Zones (1975) School Bus Safety Film

Death Zones by Seven Oaks Productions.  It is basically a snuff film with three vignettes of kids getting killed or maimed by the school bus.

As poor Mihi Quon lays dead under the bus wheels after running back into the street to retrieve the valentine she made for her mother, the narator intones "Life is a wonderful thing, a great adventure for those who are alive."

Even worse is after the high school girl slips off the snowbank and gets crushed by the bus.  The narator says "Because Mary Malone forgot to think about what could happen, Mary Malone need not think about the dance on Saturday night, Mary Malone will never again work at McDonalds, somehere on a country road in Vermont, life will be over for Mary Malone.  Learn from her mistake "

I saw this in elementary school as a 1st grader and the message was clear, the school bus is going to kill you if you made the slightest mistake.  I've hated the school bus ever since.

01/01/2018 - 11:55am Let’s get you out of the program

I’ll take the players over internet posters.

12/29/2017 - 7:22pm Coaches had the plan to beat OSU this year

Just needed a QB who could execute it.

12/28/2017 - 1:12pm Don’t rush does not equal stand around and do nothing.

Arizona stops the play if they keep contain and don’t all chase after the QB’s misdirection.

12/28/2017 - 10:51am If the QB gets destroyed

If the QB gets destroyed on an actual kneel down, it is absolutely a penalty as it would be a late hit and a cheap shot by the D. The QB would be down and the play over as soon as his knee touches the ground.

11/18/2017 - 7:18pm Mistakes happen

But your mistake negates your whole argument about JOK being a better QB than Threet, so it’s a pretty costly mistake.

Btw Chad Carr against Wisconsin some time in the 90s is the worst UM QB performance I have ever seen.

11/18/2017 - 6:52pm We won in 2008

Threet beat the Badgers in 2008. You really are a negative dumbass.

11/12/2017 - 1:18pm The Big Buck

Wayne Fontes would disagree.

11/06/2017 - 3:31pm They may have gotten the spot right

But they blew the announcement. The ref clearly states that the penalty would be enforced from the end of the run (which was the 40). Hard to have confidence in the refs when they announce the wrong things.

11/04/2017 - 6:50pm There is lightning all over the place

Can’t have people in the stadium.

10/30/2017 - 3:43pm You did miss them.

Both were played at halftime, but they didn't announce them.  

10/27/2017 - 10:15am Take the points.

Nothing I’ve seen this year leads me to believe that we will have a comfortable game. The D should get back to playing dominant, but the O will make enough mistakes to keep the game close.

10/19/2017 - 1:37pm Wasn't a terrible call at all

Fant did exactly what Hill did on his interception that got negated by by PI in the 1st quarter.  If one was PI, then so was the other.

Fant should have been called for PI again on the bad decision to throw into double coverage.  He clearly pins the receiver's left hand and prevents the receiver from attempting to make the catch with 2 hands. 

10/17/2017 - 11:17am Indiana got fair reffing on Saturday

The PI on Fant is not a legit complaint.  Fant did exactly what Hill did.  Both were called for PI and had interceptions negated.  The refs were consistant in those situations and that is what you want.   

10/06/2017 - 8:52pm Westlake

Doesn’t help that 4 or 5 of the teams in our conference will make the state playoffs.

10/06/2017 - 8:20pm Water

Water while I watch my son’s varsity team get slaughtered again. Gin & tonics as soon as I get home.

09/26/2017 - 11:14am I'd make it 2.5 major biffs

The fair catch inside the 10 with less than 30 seconds left in the game was a bad decision and he knew it immediately after he did it.  Given the situation, you have to at least try to make the gunner miss.

09/24/2017 - 2:23pm Peppers

Peppers having an awful game in Indy. Got beat to the end zone by Hilton because he took a bad angle and then PI on the next series lead to another Colts TD.

09/23/2017 - 1:21pm Deja Vu

Incompetent refs cost a team a legitimate TD at Jerryworld

09/21/2017 - 4:33pm People here are already pissed off

People here are already pissed off after back to back 10 win seasons and a 3-0 start.

09/19/2017 - 1:06pm So that's why

So that's why the Juggalos marched on Washington.

09/19/2017 - 1:03pm 7, 7:30 or 8

Game will kick off at 7, 7:30 or 8 according to the guy who runs the lot that I've been parking at for years. He was telling all of the pass holders that they wouldn't be opening the lot before noon.

09/15/2017 - 12:21pm We know the reason the D couldn't stop OSU

We know the reason the D couldn't stop OSU late in the 4th.  The refs decided to call a bogus PI on a 3rd down stop.  It's a different game if the refs aren't gifting OSU extended possessions.  

09/12/2017 - 8:08am Not a bad QB

Speight is frustrating, but not a bad QB. I believe B+ QB is his ceiling, not where he currently is. He has command of the game and can be really sharp at times. Unfortunately, he can get off kilter and go through prolonged poor stretches. He is by far our best option. Remember when Hoke replaced Gardner with Morris? How'd that turn out?

Plenty of teams have ridden an elite D and a serviceable QB to titles.

09/10/2017 - 1:49pm Beilein

Beilein and the Basketball team were there yesterday to be honored, so probably was.

09/04/2017 - 2:54pm Also

Also did it right at the ref's feet, which seemed to piss the ref off.

08/09/2017 - 9:03am I was there.

I was there, so I'll never forget.  I can still hear the cowbells.

Sat near the band.  At least they had a good performance that day.

08/09/2017 - 9:00am Guesses

1) 28-8

2) Georgia

3) Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Arkansas, LSU, Florida, Vandy, Kentucky, South Carolina, Missouri

4) Alabama, Mississippi State, Auburn, Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas A&M 

07/14/2017 - 2:37pm Twice in 77

He did it twice in 77 and off the Yankees both times if I remember correctly.  I was at one of those games and again if memory serves, Rausty Staub followed it up with a homer to the RF upper deck.

06/08/2017 - 10:49am Ripken Experience Pigeon Forge

Headed to Pigeon Forge, TN next week for my youngest son's 12U tournament at the Ripken Experience.  Rented a cabin with 9 of the other families.  Sounded like a good idea at the time.  We'll see if we survive.
