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 […]

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 […]
