I looked around the site and highly recommend this thread because it's really good and insightful:
It's about real estate development, not politics.
Isn't Trump putting a hotel in the old post office?
Fun (depressing) fact: Our government spends more than 1 cent per penny to make pennies.
Also, while it costs money, the basement of Ford's Theater is cool if there's an interest in Lincoln and the assassination.
I just returned from there.
I'm a history nerd so I love the National Archives and the American History Museum (Smithsonian).
Archives: original Constitutional, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence are highlights.
American History: Gunboat Philadelphia (Revolutionary War); George Washington clothing/sword and artifacts; Lincoln's hat from assassination day; portable desk Thomas Jefferson used to write Dec. of Independence; Ben Franklin's cane; flag from War of 1812 which inspired Star Spangled Banner; and a lot more .. I'm just giving you quick off the top of my head.
If that's too nerdy for your group, the Air & Space museum would be cool for that age. My personal favorite is the Wright Bros. exhibit but there's more cool stuff in terms of fast planes, space ships, etc.
If you contact your Congressional Rep far enough in advance you can tour White House and State House.
Hope your trip goes well ... I really enjoy the history there.
My position on Beck hasn't changed:
At that level of competition, if you need a co-worker to sit next to you and hold your hand in order for you to do your job you're probably in over your head. See press box, TTUN.
If he can recruit then great but call a spade a spade...he needs help calling plays.
The Armory location is now the home of the Wexner Center for the Arts:
If Joe Paterno is still considered highly rated, then Joe Paterno
I love me some Ohio State, but it's really hard to plan an "iconic" addition to campus in my humble opinion.
The team is fun to watch right now. Let's hope it results in playoff baseball.
I'd add psych outs....
It makes basketball unwatchable
Bert, the entire Penn St administration.....
In before the nuke.
I grew up in sort of South-Central Ohio, i.e., near where Ohio comes to a point on the Ohio river in the middle of the state. Ohio State is big there, but there's definitely competition from UC for all sports and UK for basketball (people like a winner). In some years OU Bobcats and Marshall Thundering Herd get people's attention. Luckily, I drove up 23 as soon as I graduated high school and went full Buckeye, but it's probably not as common to wind up in Columbus from that part of the state as it is from other parts of the state.
No JT Barrett? C'mon. Also, don't be surprised if no one throws at Gareon Conley by the end of the season.
Yea I hear you .. I have this fantasy where the college football playoff has at least one round in the higher seeded team's stadium in late December / early January. That way, if Ohio State / TTUN / etc. has a great season, they can get LSU outdoors in 20 degree weather as opposed to our teams dealing with going from cold to hot all the time.
FWIW, I get that Urban has built a track team that can play the speed game on artificial surfaces all day long so the difference isn't what it used to be ... but hey, I said it was a fantasy.
