May 25 1935 Jesse Owens sets 3 world records in 45 minutes at Ohio State Owens attended The Ohio State University only after employment was found for his father, ensuring the family could be supported. Affectionately known as the “Buckeye Bullet,” Owens won a record eight individual NCAA championships, four each in 1935 and 1936. (The record of four gold medals at the NCAA has been equaled only by Xavier Carter in 2006, although his many titles also included relay medals.) Though Owens was enjoying athletic success, he had to live off campus with other African-American athletes. When he traveled with the team, Owens could either order carry-out or eat at “black-only” restaurants. Likewise, he slept in “black-only” hotels. Owens was never awarded a scholarship for his efforts, so he continued to work part-time jobs to pay for school. Owens’s greatest achievement came in a span of 45 minutes on May 25, 1935 at the Big Ten meet in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he set three world records and tied a fourth. He equaled the world record for the 100-yard (91 m) sprint (9.4 seconds) and set world records in the long jump (26 feet 8¼ inches (8.13 m), a world record that would last 25 years), 220-yard (201.2 m) sprint (20.7 seconds), and 220-yard (201.2m) low hurdles (22.6 seconds to become the first person to break 23 seconds). In 2005, both NBC sports announcer Bob Costas and University of Central Florida professor of sports history Richard C. Crepeau chose this as the most impressive athletic achievement since 1850. Owens was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter organization established for African Americans.

Brutus Buckeye Celebrates Ohio State’s Win at Walt Disney World Resort

Being that I’m a Michigan Wolverines fan, this article is very hard for me to share from Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director, Walt Disney World and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.  I know TMSM Friend and Disney Merchandise Communications Manager, Steven Miller is an Ohio State Fan so I’m happy for him that his team’s mascot visited the Magic Kingdom.

On the heels of Ohio State’s College Football Playoff National Championship win, the school’s mascot, Brutus Buckeye, celebrated the team’s historic victory at Walt Disney World Resort on Wednesday. Brutus Buckeye spent the morning at Magic Kingdom Park showing his Disney Side, posing for photos with Disney cheerleaders in front of Cinderella Castle and experiencing Storybook Circus where he rode Dumbo The Flying Elephant and strolled through the park holding balloons.

The trip to Walt Disney World Resort was the magical ending to a fun series of Disney Parks TV spots featuring mascots from the four College Football Playoff semifinal teams vying for the chance to come to Walt Disney World Resort if their team won the first-ever College Football Playoff National Championship, which aired on ESPN. Brutus Buckeye had his ticket punched when Ohio State defeated the University of Oregon 42-20 on Monday night in Dallas.

As for all of the teams that didn’t get to send their mascot to celebrate at Disney, our friends at ESPN have a comforting message for you.

Don’t Finish That Sentence

     Sean doesn’t like The Buckeye

     “He’s homophobic,” he said. “I felt it during training. It was very obvious. He wouldn’t look at me or call on me. He completely ignored me.” 

     Sean is in his mid 30s and has been a server for the last ten years. He was forced into the industry when his parents disowned him and took away the trust fund once he came out of the closet. Although he’s still coping with the damage, it hasn’t stopped him from being himself. He’s fluttery and snaps his head around even if no one calls his name. He keeps his chin up, chest out, back bowed, ass out, wrists limp, and lips pursed.

    The Buckeye is one of those guys who likes to start a sentence with, “I’m not homophobic, but…” Never finish that sentence if you don’t want to sound homophobic. Just end it at I’m not Homophobic, otherwise you’re going to sound homophobic. It’s that simple. If you were truly not homophobic, that sentence wouldn’t even start from your lips, but we’re dealing with a bro from Ohio who’s trying his hardest to let L.A. culture him. What I’ve gathered from my six years of working with him is that he’s cool with homosexuality just as long as it’s not obvious, which is disgusting and why we need people like Sean shoving it down his throat.

      “He doesn’t mind homosexuality,” I said. “He just doesn’t like faggots.”

      That hit Sean hard. 

      “Are you saying I’m not butch?” he asked, shocked.

      I was not about to turn this into a game of How Butch Are You?

      “Why do you even care if he likes you Sean? Does it really matter?” 

      “I knooooooow,” he sighed. “It just reminds me of middle school and I hate those feelings.” 

      “Consider it a blessing he doesn’t talk to you.”

      I get it, though. Sean is looking for acceptance, as we all are. He just needs to choose people worth it, and The Buckeye is not one of them.

On this day in 1935 Jesse Owens set 3 World Records and tied another in what is called the Greatest 45 Minutes Ever In Sports.

It still looks like a misprint.

Four world records in three-quarters of an hour. Not 45 weeks or 45 days but 45 minutes.

Eighty years ago on May 25th, at the 1935 Big Ten Track and Field Championships in Ann Arbor, Mich., Jesse Owens didn’t rewrite the record book – he tore it up.

In less than an hour, the 21-year-old Ohio State sophomore tied the world record in the 100-yard dash and then set the world record in the long jump, the 220-yard dash and the 220 low hurdles.

Took a slight driving detour on the way home to my alma mater. The Ohio State University. I wanted to get a few more photos, but my son was asking for a nap…so it was time to go home. But I did get the Horseshoe (Ohio Stadium) and Varsity Club (every university has an iconic bar, right?)

The future hearts tour was amazingggg, thoughts time.

 Never heard State Champs before but they were really good! Issues and ATL were as amazing and usual too.

A random person gave me props for being on Tumblr during a concert but I don’t know how she knew when she was coming from in front of me.

The couples in the pit were really excited for All Time Low, lots of making out in the pit, which was kinda weird.

And of course ATL didn’t play Don’t You Go, which is the best song on their new album, though it also gives me feels to maybe that’s for the best lel.

I got some good pics and videos I’ll upload tomorrow!
