    My World Tuesday; Buckeye Country!

    Being the only girl in a household full of testosterone, forced my interest in sports. My husband played football, hockey and was a cyclist. Our son participated in little league, wrestling, 14 years of soccer and still plays hockey. Hailing from Cleveland, we’re die-hard Browns, Indians and Cavs fans. Since moving to the Columbus area we’ve found ourselves surrounded by OSU fanatics. And I mean it literally. This town is absolutely crazy for all things Buckeye.
    Even the “Best damn band in the land”…..





    UPDATE: Commenter Barb asked what sports I liked to play. I actually played basketball and softball in high school and until my 2001 back surgery played spring, summer and fall softball for various leagues in our city. And I was a "band geek". Playing the clarinet, french horn and trumpet in the marching and jazz bands in junior and senior high school.

    Love the statue and I can relate to the male household since I have two sons and no daughters.

    It's fun when the town is united by a love of something - even if it involves sports! You didn't say what you like to play?

    Janice: From anothe Buckeye fan it is nice to see the game from the Columbus area. I went to YSU so am a big Tressel fan.

    I grew up in a houseful of boys and I was the only girl, so I know exactly what you're talking about. Is that statue the mascot?

    A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I discovered this site:
    [url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
    They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
    Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
