Hail to the Chief...and Victor

MZone reader Tiny was in Grand Rapids from North Carolina recently and decided to pay his respects to former President Gerald R. Ford at his presidential museum and burial site.



While there, he found a cool piece of art depicting Ford's playing days at Michigan built by Louis Padnos, a metal scrapper out of Holland, Michigan...

That's a pretty cool piece of art. Plus, it explains why Brezhnev always referred to Ford as "Bucket Ass Jerry."

Just wondering... how many tOSU alums have been the POTUS?

Leave it to the jackass to make a "from behind" comment. It was obviously taken at that angle so you could see the number.
If you wanna know about "from behind" I'm sure Mo Clarett could fill you in.

I would have posted the link, but one must be an ESPN Insider to read the whole article...which some people are not. I posted it like that for the people who are not Insiders.

da braylon... not to be too much of a buzz kill but as someone who makes a living off of license agreements you could say I'm a bit sensitive to when I see people potentially take food out of my family's or someone else's mouths...

dunno how to send a pm to yost, but I really liked seeing that the michigan band played at Ford's memorial/funeral.. Today we saw something similar in Texas, as the Longhorn band played The Eyes of Texas at Lady Bird Johnson's memorial... heres the link to anyone interested.

all I can say for the buckeye fans is, at least we deserve to win all of our national championships. How much did the suckeyes pay the refs during the Miami vs Bucks National title game for them to win that one?

DB,

Appreciate the ESPN info. However, since it is paid material for subscribers, I felt obligated to remove it.

If ESPN puts it up for free down the line (as they did with their PSU preview), let me know and I will repost it in full.

Thanks.
