Usually each barber has their own sink and I can see at least four faucets in the photo. If the two basins are symmetrical, you'll probably be looking at six or seven chairs.

I wish the university would do something about the south stands facade. From the base of the concrete it looks like the south exterior was supposed to have archways like those around the rest of the stadium, but it just looks incomplete. I don't have an explanation for why it looks the way it does and would appreciate some insight if anyone knows, but I would love for the south entrance to have a finish worthy of Ohio Stadium. For now that whole side looks like an afterthought.

There are congressmen and congresswomen, so congressperson is just a neutral term. Either way is acceptable.

This is neat news for Cleveland. I attended the Democratic conventions in Denver (2008) and Charlotte (2012) and they were some of the most fun experiences I have ever had. For anyone that has never been, I would absolutely suggest attending the convention. And if you contact your congressperson, state senator, or state representative early on, you may even be able to get your hands on tickets to some of the speeches (although the real fun is at the after parties).

The only downside is that I assume this will lessen the chances that Columbus lands the Democratic convention. I just can't imagine both of them happening in the same state, but stranger things have happened.

I wonder if Rosenberg has ever voiced his disdain now that Steve Fisher is coaching again. How soon we forget about the 1990s, the Fab Five, and $600,000 in illegal cash to players. Glass houses, Michigan Man.

I like your abstract interpretation, namely that the field has five less yards between the endzones than an actual field. I would like to commission you to turn this MS Paint marvel into a real paint masterpiece.

For what it's worth, Ohio State football players already receive a lot of the benefits that players across the country seek, including extended health coverage after graduation, guaranteed four-year scholarships, the ability to return and finish a degree free of charge. You'll never need a union if you treat your players well, which Ohio State does.

Near the corner of 5th and High, there is a distillery, a meadery, and a brewery all within two blocks of each other: Middle West Spirits, Brothers Drake, and Seventh Son, respectively. I know for sure Middle West and Brothers Drake offer tours if you call ahead. I would recommend starting with one if those then hopping through the Short North. 

In April I would be looking for patios/open air bars for warm weather and people watching. Bodega is a hipster spot with a patio and 50 beers on tap. The Pint House a huge bar with an enormous beer selection and the front is open to the street. Marcella's and The Pearl are more of restaurants, but both have excellent food and massive windows facing the street that open completely. Cantina is open air and both Novak's and Callahans have rooftop decks overlooking the North Market. A lot of good food, drinks, and people watching all around.

Sources say Cardale Jones and Trey Johnson haven’t exactly lit the world on fire with their work ethic over the winter.

People said the same thing about Michael Phelps. But if bong rips and 12,000 calories a day can get that dude 22 gold medals, I'd say there's hope for Cardale and Trey.

A few weeks ago I played a game called Tapper, a 1983 classic that has you racing to serve drinks to angry customers. 16-Bit has the bar version that serves Budweiser, but there is apparently also a family edition that serves root beer.

For any people in Central Ohio, there is a bar in downtown Columbus called 16-Bit. It has a ton of old arcade games that you can play for free. Definitely worth a visit.

You can see their game list here:
