and I want to go see it tomorrow! I miss track.

I was talking with a friend the other day and told her I wished I could clone myself so I’d have a buddy to go do the things I enjoy with. My best friends are sprinkled all over the country, so simple things like going to a movie, dinner, or a sporting event requires some coaxing on my part. I usually beg a family member to go with me. My poor brother goes to every concert with me. But I pay, so I guess it’s not so inconvenient; I haven’t asked him as much!

BTW, I’m dragging him to see Vanessa Carlton in August. It’s not really “dragging”. He’s accompanied me to see her before, and met her there. Then after that show, my Nessa CD’s mysteriously disappeared from my collection. 😉 My brother likes almost everything. Seriously. Great concert companion. I wonder if I can get him to go to Bucyrus to see Danity Kane too? Hmmm.

Anyway, back to track. The OHSAA Track & Field meet is going on this weekend at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. [RESULTS] That’s a hop, skip, and a jump from here for me. I’ll see if I can talk my cousin, Charlie, into going with me. We hit up the Spring Football game together — in the rain — and still had a great time. He’s like my “Ohio State Buddy” and there are quite a few Buckeye signees, commits, and recruits in town for the meet.

Speaking of OSU signees, the local NBC affiliate showed footage of incoming Buckeye Devier Posey’s 100 semi from today. Dude is big! He always looked small to me next to his Buckeye buddies, who happen to be beastly offensive linemen. (Proof: 3rd in from right in khaki-colored shirt) Next to the other runners in his field, he stood out in a good way; solid. Made me even more excited to see him don the Scarlet & Gray beginning this fall. I wonder when he’s getting to campus…

While I’m at it, I need to find a local Cleveland Browns fan too. My entire family seems to like the Cincinnati Bengals, so I feel very alone in that respect.
