I returned the blazer...

An old man in an equally old tweed jacket approached me and said, "oh, I'm so glad someone as young as you enjoys my work." He acted very strangely.

Do NOT buy a 3rd Generation shuffle. The only reason to buy a shuffle is to listen to music when you exercise. But the 3rd Generation shuffle has a design flaw: any sweat at all gets on the Ipod and it will shut down. It cannot be used when you work out unless you can somehow keep it away from your body. The fact that Apple knowingly sells a defective product, even a cheap one, would make me hesitant to buy anything from them.

Great line play and open-field tackling by the Buckeyes. USC passing game is built on getting yards after the catch. Almost none today, except for the crucial McKnight 3rd down. Barkley had good poise and mechanics, but reads plays too slow. Ball very often arrived just a bit too late. Been a very different game had Mark Sanchez stayed another year. Hopefully, new kid will get better.
