Blog Poll Roundtable

Since this is the inaugural season for Men of the Scarlet and Gray, it will also be our first participation in the Blog Poll (if we get accepted, that is). That being said, we can’t resist an invitation to talk about the most important people here, Us. Besides, since MotSaG is relatively new, this will give you a chance to learn a little about us (each MotSaG contributor will update this post with their own answers). So without further ado, from EDSBS, we present to you our answers to the Blog Poll Roundtable.

1. Education. List the region of the country you were born in, what universities you attended and at least one other you would have attended if your alma mater didn’t exist.

el Kaiser: Born in Utah, raised in Ohio. I attended tOSU earning both my BSECE and MSEE. If the Ohio State University didn’t exist, I probably would have ended up working as a mason.

sportsMonkey: Born in Columbus, raised in Columbus, work in Columbus. Attended both Columbus State and tOSU. If neither were available, I probably would have gone to another fine Ohio institution, say, Miami or BG. Or clown college. That’d be awesome. I’ll have to ask my manager about that one…

2. Sports Affiliations. List your top 10 favorite teams in all of sports in decending order. For instance, your alma mater’s football team may be number 1, but perhaps there is a professional team that squeezes in before you get to your alma mater’s lacrosse team.

3. Movies. List the movie you’ve watched the most, your favorite sports related movie, the movie you secretly love but don’t like to admit it (possibly a chick flick or b film), and the movie you were (or still are) most looking forward to from this summer’s season.
