At The Schott For A Buckeyes Win

JV graciously invited me to join him at tonight’s OSU-Penn State game at the Schott.  (Thanks, JV!)  It was an excellent, hard-fought, exciting game, and the Buckeyes ultimately prevailed behind the stellar play of Aaron Craft and back-to-back natural three-point plays by Jared Sullinger.  Tonight, the freshmen led the way.

The win puts the Buckeyes at 5-0 in the Big Ten and 18-0 on the season.  It is expected that, with Duke’s loss earlier this week, the Buckeyes will now move up to no. 1 in the polls.

The Penny Chronicles

My name is Penny.

I like to chew.  I really like to chew and then swallow food.  I like that most of all.  I only get food once in a while, though.  When I can’t get food, I like to find something else to chew.  I especially like to chew things when everyone else in the pack leaves.  It helps to pass the time until they get back.

I chew lots of things.  Some of them are my things, and chewing them is good.  I like to feel hard things between my jaws.  When I chew them they bend and snap.  Boy, does that feel good!  I also like chewing things that smell like other people in the pack.  The only problem with that is that it can make the old boring guy mad.  Too bad!  It is worth it to have a good chew.

Yes, chewing is good.  It is not as good as eating, though.  Nothing is as good as eating.

Cleaning Out The Gear

Last week the University of Michigan cleaned house by firing former head football coach Rich Rodriguez, and now Rodriguez is engaging in his own kind of housecleaning.

Rodriguez donated 432 items of Michigan apparel — 12 bags full — to a Salvation Army store in Wayne, Michigan.  The assortment includes caps, shirts, and jackets, ranging from medium to 2XL.  The Salvation Army store is planning on having a sale of the materials today.

Twelve bags of Michigan stuff seems like a lot, but maybe every college football head coach keeps a kind of clothing store at their house, at the ready in case some stud recruit and his parents drop by.  In any case, after he got the axe Rodriguez didn’t need the stuff any more.  I don’t think he’s going to be wearing UM gear any time soon, and he probably doesn’t want to look at any Michigan stuff that would remind him of his grim three-year run as the head coach.  It was generous of him to give the Salvation Army got the benefit of his housecleaning efforts.
