I've never gotten in the habit of mentioning each Ohio State win (that would get redundant, especially in the Urban Meyer era), but last night's win over Northwestern, where the Buckeyes spun their wheels most of the evening, will be most memorable for me in the way they covered the spread by scoring a crazy touchdown when the clock had run out. I'll take 'em any way the Buckeyes can get 'em.
The government shutdown, you know, the situation in which we find ourselves because, among many reasons, the Senate wouldn't agree to live under the same Obamacare law that we all are going to have to live under... well, the government shutdown is threatening to affect Jenn and Grandpa Dave's upcoming half-marathon, as it is to be run on the Towpath through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Grrrrrrrrr. I'm not enamored with much of Washington these days on either side, but the excuse we have for a leader in the White House can't be gone soon enough.
