I wasn't born there, thank God. I can't stand it there, neither can my parents.
Not too big a fan. Oxford is pretty cool since it is its own little town, but the rest I'm not to high on. I plan to go to a couple CBJ games after Christmas break, though. I can't take the love affair with OSU football around here.

They LOVE OSU football there.

I respect their love for it. I like OSU but not as much as they do.

How can you blame them? I mean, look at what they've had.

NFL--Browns and Cinci

NBA--Do they?

NHL--The newest, and is doing well I believe?

They've loved OSU since....welll forever!

When was the last time, Ohio has one a championship in pro sports..It's been a long ass time.

NBA - another one of my hated love affairs - the Cleveland LeBrons.

My girlfriend is from Cleveland, and ironically, loves Mo Williams, I'm cool with that. But LeBron James has become a bane of my existence in day to day Ohio life. You should've heard the buzz when ESPN mentioned he was considering playing for the Browns or whatever that malarky was all about.

It is impressive to score 40 goals and still have the common courtesy to share the spotlight with the other team's players by allowing them to score 50.

Defensive just something that other people do. He part of a PK unit that generally negates all of the positives of the PP unit. Sure he has 2 SHG but he's been on the ice for 3 or 4 SHGA. People go through all kinds of hoops trying to say that he isn't as bad defensively as his stats suggest but he is. He really is.

At the very least he is a very quiet superstar... one that needs to be made better by his teammates rather than one that makes his teammates better.

I've sort of adopted them as my 2nd team over the last few years. They're very likable, a lot of good character guys such as Umberger and Commodore. One of my favorites to watch has been Raffi Torres. Despite not living up to his draft pick, the guy plays with so much heart and energy. Now THERE is a guy I'd love to see in the O&B. Gritty to the max.

I suspect Brian Boucher may have leaked the dry island story. Thinking back to when I started this thread, I remember thinking he was referring to Richards.

Win some freakin' hockey games already. Hell, I'd settle for a streak of 5 games or so where we aren't completely embarrassed.

Yes, get some rest, control your energy level, and stop lookin' pathetic on game day. Good idea.
That issue isn't as much the players as it is the media. They say something off the cuff and the media rips them apart. So what do the players do? They say the same **** over and over so that they don't have to deal with the media and can focus on playing hockey.
