A 1996 graduate of The Ohio State University, Michael is a former Lantern sports editor. He was a sports writer for the Globe-News in Amarillo, Texas in the late 90s and worked for five years in the communications department of the NHL’s Florida Panthers. As a young Buckeye fan, he gasped in horror at his television when Woody Hayes struck Charlie Bauman. He then suffered through the many 9-3 seasons of Earle Bruce and the dark days of John Cooper, but somehow emerged all the stronger for it. A music fanatic with more than 1,300 compact discs ("Grandpa, what are those?"), and about three months worth of music in his iTunes library, Michael recently completed a 10-year run as host of a weekly progressive rock internet radio show. When not writing about the Buckeyes or listening to 20-minute prog rock songs, Michael spends entirely too much time on Twitter or watching television. Or both at the same time.

I don't understand Mirror Lake. Seems like you could just get a custom in-ground pool builder and a hose and be done with it. This is my thinking as the holder of an Ohio State bachelor's degree in journalism.
