I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! And now we look forward to Saturday’s Big Game in Columbus… Michigan v. Ohio State. As we’ve done since the Woody Hayes Days, I present for your listening pleasure, “Liquidate Ohio State”! What you will hear is the original version of the song with the voices of Tom Ryan, Tom DeLisle and myself, recorded at WXYZ AM radio - 1270. Over the years we overdubbed the name of each new coach as he came in. This one was done sometime between 2001 and 2010 during Jim Tressel’s head coaching career with the Buckeyes. Enjoy… and Go Blue!

One hundred years ago “World War I” known then as “THE GREAT WAR” - that involved 32 countries - ended after 4 years and 10 million men killed. 21 years later, an even Greater War began, leading to 6 years and 50 to 60 million killed. Since then, the countries of the world have struggled to ensure there would be no more so call “GREAT WARS”. While there have been, and most likely always will be, “smaller” and regional conflicts, somehow or other we have been successful in avoiding another WORLD War. May our good fortune continue!

On this Veterans Day, we thank all of those who have served our great Country!

No go out and get half-off a mattress!

See you tomorrow…
