If you aren't expecting skill, sure. Maybe that could be my gateway into real hockey.

Wondering if anyone has advice about teaching the rules of hockey to people who want to learn. I have a couple of friends here that are interested in learning about hockey. And I figure now is a good time because of the playoffs.

They're soccer fans, so hopefully it won't be too difficult for them to follow.

edit: I should probably note; we aren't playing, just watching streams.

Dunno if you have access, but I've found hockey video games are great for that. Explain icing, then ice the puck, let them see what happens. Explain offsides, then go offsides, etc.

Good idea. We've been watching a few games lately, and one of my friends asked if there were hockey video games. I asked my dad to ship one of my NHL games from the states. Kind of excited to get to play it myself.

Younger kids would probably enjoy watching Peter Puck, but some of the rules have changed since then (notably the two-line pass):

To no one's surprise the Acura NSX will be built right next to the Accord and TL plant in Marysville.

And I'd love to get an NSX, but the original is still far out of my price range! Can't imagine what the new one will cost.

I don't really care for the newer TL's but I would love to have a TL Types S from a couple years back.

As an alum, I would encourage you to drop the t. Implore you, even. And never think about "but for Ohio State".

Anyway, congratulations! What are you thinking of studying?

I have no idea. I know I love sports, and I would love to get into any type of major league sport. It's my dream, so sports management seems to be up my ally but I haven't 100% decided.

Congrats on your impending graduation - my second-oldest daughter just got her diploma last night. She will be attending BGSU working towards a degree in Communications hoping to get a job in Public Relations. That might be a good fit for you as PR is one of the fastest growth fields out there and lots of businesses, including professional teams, are looking for people who can use the social media tools that are available to their advantage.

I have 4 tickets to the Indy 500 tomorrow for sale. Willing to let them go for less than face value. 2 of the tickets are general admission and 2 are in the stands. I would split them up if need be.

Hit me up at ernmorris@roadrunner.com or preferably 614 206 3086. Thanks

For those who care, and I guess I care, although probably isn't the good kind of caring...

Scott Torgerson has joined the QFM 96 morning show. Apparently last Monday was the first show. I knew Arch was doing work on the new 95.5 sports station, but I guess he is also off the morning show with Jerry Elliott.

So, I def enjoyed the weather a lot more this Memorial Day weekend compared to last year. I'll take mid 60's compared to mid 90's like last year.

Seems weird that they wouldn't put Torg on the sports channel considering his part in the massive ratings success of his previous sports show.

I never heard the Archie and Elliott show. Hell, I didn't even know Wags & Elliott was no longer a thing. But from what I've heard, Arch seems to a pretty good alternative to what 97.1 plays at the same time on their station.
