Fall Quarter, This Year (2000)
A weekend early in the quarter I had to squeeze several visitors in my
apartment. Gary, Tom, Brad, Morton, and Huss sitting around talking.
One of my best friends from high school got married on September 30, 2000 at
Miami University in Oxford, OH. The wedding party is seen here, with Jeb
the photographer seen on the left. That man took more pictures in one day
than I have ever seen.
At the reception, old high school friends Leake and Gabe hanging out. It
was almost like old times.
Gabe and his lovely girlfriend, Barb, enjoying the reception.
The newlywed dance. Mr. and Mrs. Greg Bobeczko.
Another buddy of mine, Jeff, and his girlfriend Pam.
Ah, the old high school crew, class of '95: Gabe, Leake, Greg, and Jeff.
Gabe and Barb dancing the night away.
Pam and Jeff on the dance floor.
One of the coolest aspects of the wedding: here the groom is rapping with
Greg and Kristin Bobeczko, fresh off the altar.
Barb and Leake posing with the bartender, who served us well that night.
He even remembered to hold the wedge on my gin and tonic when I ordered.
Friday night of Homecoming weekend at OU. Two of my high school friends
with me, Missy and Bridget.
Two other Mentor High School graduates also happen to be OU alumni: Jeff
Melissa, one of the old Franklin crew, and Jeff at the Pigskin, where else?
Another one of the Franklin girls, Julie, and Jeff at the Pigskin.
Kinga (all the way from Chicago) and Jeff at the Pigskin. We never did get
to play any pool. Probably for the best, I always lose the game for us,
Still at the Pigskin: Clint-Dogg and wife Gina on the left with Huss and
Toni, Jeff, Kinga, Laura, and Huss.
A rose between two thorns: Leake, Toni, and Huss chilling at the 'Skin.
Kind of tough to see, but Court St. was completely overrun with people Friday
night. Sure enough, the mounted police had to intervene.
The next morning (yes, I said MORNING) at the Pub: Brad (a.k.a. Weasel),
Big John, Nasty Neal (all the way from Anaheim, CA), and Rick Steele (made the
trip from D.C.). Bobcats came from far and wide.
Tailgating before the football game. Darcy bumming a few beers from fellow
At the football game against Central Michigan: Darcy, Huss, Leake, Toni,
and Amber. OU went on to win the game 52-3, though we only made it to half
time. And yes, that is the outfit I had on the night before. Long
On the way home we stumbled upon an inflatable Bobcat: Darcy, Amber, Toni,
Jeff, and Ryan.
On Court Street Saturday night, outside of the Pigskin: Anthony, Jason,
Daryn, Jeff, and Ryan holding Jason's girlfriend Eleanor.
Eleanor and Mike at BW-3 Saturday night.
Rick Steele and Dan (a.k.a. Otis) at BW-3.
Brad and Makayla (made the trip from Chicago) at the BW-3.
