Ken Kal gave me tickets to a game he broadcast in the early 90’s.  He was the voice of a college team long before he was the play by play man for the wings.  He modeled his style after Bruce Martin.  He replaced Bruce because of that.


i loved his after game interviews w/Red after every game...

Price a legend on the 68 team.  No, just no.  He was a bench player/backup catcher.  Bill Freehan was the catcher/Star/MVP of that series.  Okay, him and Mickey Lolich shared those honors.  Jim price didn’t get significant playing time until Freehan’s knees were crap; like most catchers of that era — mine Included.  

Ps.  Bill Freehan went to which university?

Remember they are political appointees not elected officials in Ohio.  If they would have fired him, the political balance would be upset not in favor of the current incumbants. So it wasn’t going to happen this close to an election, if ever.

Clearly, your degree isn’t mathematics.  Once you get a degree in math, there are four things you can no longer do:  add subtract multiply or divide.  

I have this problem, a math degree, and it sucks for an engineer.  My engr degrees can’t cancel out the effect of the math degree.

Michigan and Ohio fought a “war”, and Wisconsin lost (the western half of theUP). The Michigan territory already had the Eastern half.

ohio was one of the largest congressional delegations shortly after its statehood.  They had a lot of power; thus, they were able to game the system.  Some things never change; stay classy Ohio.

It’s rare, but I have to agree with the man from Sydney. And I assume, he isn’t from Sydney Ohio.

Dick Balzhiser was from east Detroit. He was a ChemE and carried a 4.0 and was married with kids.  Got his PhD in ChemE under CM Slipsovich at michigan.  He was famous for writing thee Chemical Engineering textbook on Chemical Engr thermodynamics.  Balzhiser was my dad’s advisor when he was working on his grad degree.  I never met Dick Balzhiser, but I met his advisor Slipsovich when he was a prof @OU.  OU used Balzhiser’s thermo book for some reason.

Sadly, I knew someone who got a ride in the helicopter.  Car w/resident after a 36hr shift vs cyclist.  My friend was the cyclist.

You are correct sir.  The panel to pick the next AD had three names on it.  MSC told them to add a 4th — DB.  Then she picked him over the the 3 qualified selections which included wade manual.

I was directly behind woody for that, 70+ rows up.

08/07/2018 - 11:39pm Here a story for y’all.


Here a story for y’all.

I was wearing my then usual early 90’s maize Michigan hockey jersey with #37 on the back for an early season football game in the late 90’s.  The number was my dad’s number when he “played” goalie for a season in the early 50’s.  I was stopped by a couple asking me where did I get their son’s number on a jersey; this how I met Jarret Irons parents before a game.  


Ps.  Yes, the jersey still fits — barely.  And it was a real jersey; not an overpriced replica.  It has the fighting strap!

08/04/2018 - 10:00am I’m a reformed goalie, so…

I’m a reformed goalie, so yes, yes I am.  Being a goalie is 10% skill and knowledge; the rest is pure luck.

Either that or their scale maxes out at 350, and his true weight is unknown.

i don't think MJ7 could handle all that maize, especially for noon kick-off.

05/28/2018 - 12:12am Cinci is a unique place

It’s a cross between Chicago and Toledo. I’ve lived in Toledo and did an extensive stay in cinci due to work. I think you will like Boston.

05/02/2018 - 5:27pm Same performance as a tiger

Gets him a firm handshake and a cup of coffee

04/30/2018 - 12:51am Ah, the wall o pee

Fewer rest rooms but far higher ‘throughput’. None of this missing a quarter just because you needed to get rid of that third Diet Coke.

04/28/2018 - 8:46am That is the recommended non-poisonous method

For dealing with evil chipmunks. A 5gal bucket, ramp and bird seed works well.

04/28/2018 - 8:42am Chipmunks are plain evil

Just saying.

04/26/2018 - 9:30pm Chevy still has the Cruise and Malibu.

Buick has that area covered also.

Jabril Peppers is no longer the most hated Brown player due to college crimes against OSU.

Ford just handed them a boatload of future customers.

Of a vision quest with their version of peote.

Was edged out by John Taylor. Otherwise, you could have added them to your list.

Lead guitarist was a EE at MIT. for him, writing new material included designing new electronic toys to play with sounds. And another escapee from Ohio. Ottawa Hills near Toledo.

Was from Cincinnati. Their headquarters was down the street (and down stream) from the industrial park where P&G made most of their products.

Didn’t feel anything until sometime in the 00s.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug...
...and heroine.

Does that service even work? Still waiting for service to return after the ice storm of yesterday. They aren’t in a rush to fix it.

04/12/2018 - 10:28pm I’ll take winning a playoff game

Or two by 2020. It’s that bad.

04/12/2018 - 10:27pm If you look at those who came before Quin,

Out performing them isn’t all that tough. Not saying is is good or bad, but he is better than those came before.

Or in other words, the bar is low...this is the lions.

04/02/2018 - 12:34am Ja, er ist
