Monday, July 7th, 2014

O-H-I-O! Are your ready for a sports vacation unlike any other? Take two weeks, a car, a group of buddies, and set off an adventure like no other to see the greatest sporting events north of the Ohio river. Rev up the engine grab the face paint, cooler, and tailgate accessories, it’s time to start your Ohio sports vacation.

Time of Year (Fall)

In order to gain the overall sports experience of Ohio the trip needs to happen in the fall.

Start (Cleveland):

The "Dawg Pound"

The “Dawg Pound”

Begin the trip on the shores of Lake Erie with a baseball game at Progressive Field to watch manager Terry Francona and the Indians battle for the AL Central Division Championship. If your lucky you might get to help bang one of the outfield drums in an

attempt to psych out an opposing pitcher.

The next day scoot on down to FirstEnergy Stadium and join the “Dawg Pound” in watching the NFL’s Cleveland Browns. By next fall who knows, you might be able to watch Johnny Football throw a touchdown…or an interception.

If you haven’t gotten sick of Cleveland yet, check out an early season Cavaliers game at Quicken Loans Arena. Maybe LeBron will be there too. Continue reading “Ohio Sports Vacation” »

I tried to have a normal lunch today, but there was no way to do it. After three minutes of banter with a friend he inevitably asked me, “So what do you think about the Penn State situation?”

Damn. I really thought I would be able to just eat a sandwich and move on with my day. No such luck. I instead forced myself to probe my feeble brain for what I thought of the whole thing, something I had avoided until then. And here’s what came to my mind:

  1. Bobby Bowden just backed his way back into the record books.
  2. A lot of kids who had nothing to do with the whole situation have effectively had their accomplishments wiped clean (not that I think this matters much, everyone still remembers the Fab Five)
  3. Recruiting just got a lot easier for east coast teams and Big Ten foes, in particular Ohio State
  4. Prepare for the transfer exodus
