Today’s Reason To Drink

clock-time-changeI like that we spring forward each March, but I don’t like losing an hour of sleep. Any chance we can just take that hour out of our work week instead of at 2 a.m.?

I remember one year in college, we (meaning the collective student body of Ohio University) started a riot because the bars were forced to close an hour early. We meant business. I even had some friends get shot with those rubber bullets, and one friend got cut from a flying beer bottle. No joke — read about it here, or YouTube it. As a journalism student, I, of course, was an innocent bystander who was just watching the entire event unfold before my eyes because, well, I didn’t feel like going to bed. Go Bobcats!

    Athens, Ohio has a police force of four with four deputies and three “special deputies”.
    Two squad cars and an anti-flood squad team to deal with the Ohio River at crest. Any unrest at the university would have come from the Pizza Hut delivery drivers special operations unit. Those rubber bullets would have been left over sausage and mushroom. Yo Gabba gabba, sine qua non.
    “Go Bobcats, fight til the fight is won or you feel better getting one on”.
    OU forever, no matter what the major, or minor, we love you and will drink to your past, present, and future.
