Mark’s Musings – April 16, 2014

I happened to be following someone I know this week and couldn’t help but notice a bumper sticker – well, actually it was a small orange sticker on the hatch of their vehicle. It said, “Wag more, bark less”. That little sticker says a lot in just four words. Now, it could just be a […]

Perhaps Dayton is a good team. Better than we thought. Beating the Buckeyes – okay, I just figured the Bucks’ number was up. After all, despite being number one at a point in the season – the Buckeyes lacked the poise and all the characters to have a cast that could truly win the men’s […]

Mark’s Musings – March 19, 2014

The Buckeyes gave it a good effort on Saturday – just a little short. Aaron Craft has been one of the solid go to men for the “bucks all season long so giving him the ball at the end of the game just made sense. But he seemed cold after sitting for several minutes. I […]
