Y'all know I can't count.

False, he hates me I ask a lot of questions.

GoBucks10's picture

At least there are no dumb questions.

Just dumb answers.

I hate the offseason.

HS
NHBuckeye's picture

tap tap, is this thing on...?   Ok, I'll ask the standard stupid regular overused overdone overblown ridiculous question.  This is for all 3:

Is a hotdog a sandwich?  

Fields of Dreams

 

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

I guess it does meet the basic requirements to be a sandwich, but I think hotdogs are in their own category.

Mick Walker's picture

A hot is a hot dog and a sandwich is a sandwich. Simple as that.

JL Kirven's picture

Bread? Check

Meat? Check 

A hot dog is a sandwich. 

But is a Pop Tart a ravioli?

HS
GoBucks10's picture

100% yes it's a ravioli.

I hate the offseason.

HS

So who is the intern not to be seen or heard from?

I hate the offseason.

HS

Ketchup?  Catsup?  Or not Ketchup?

I hate the offseason.

HS

You are all acceptable in my book, so long as you're not mustard fans.  Then you can all get off my lawn.

I hate the offseason.

To all 3, what made you become a Buckeye?

HS

The allure of Morrill Tower

Noted. 

This reminds me of SP and SPD. 

HS

New life goal is to one-up SP & SPD.

I hate the offseason.

Born and raised in Columbus, but technically now I'm a Bobcat.

Have always been a buckeye fan and Jason Priestas.

KBonay's picture

Wait?!  You are Jason Priestas?  Or a fan of?

HS

What are your feelings about Skyline Chili?

USArmyBuckeye's picture

I’ll field this one! Never has the journey from mouth to sphincter been executed so swiftly, nor has greater pleasure ever been gained from the experience. 

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

I personally really like Skyline. Only thing that would make it better would be if they had Coke instead of Pepsi.

JL Kirven's picture

More of a Gold Star man myself. 

HS
Mick Walker's picture

Never had it actually, should I?

GoBucks10's picture

Don't listen to JL.  Gold Star is just wrong.

I hate the offseason.

HS

popeyes or chick fil a chicken sandwich

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

I haven't had the Popeyes chicken sandwich yet, but I think it would be hard for any other fast food restaurant to top a Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich.

JL Kirven's picture

Waited an hour for the Popeyes' sandwich. Crispy and delicious, but there's a reason you can't get Chick-Fil-A on Sundays...it's the holy grail of chicken sandwiches. 

HS
KBonay's picture

What does Ellis know about 2020 RB?  

HS
Mick Walker's picture

He knows everything just ask him.

BurningRiverBuckeye's picture

You're stranded on an island - who would you rather be there with? James Franklin or Jim Harbaugh. 

HS
Major H's picture

BRB, give them a third option...a rusty butter knife to slit their wrists rather than endure that misery.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS
JL Kirven's picture

I bet Franklin could headbutt open a coconut, so him. 

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

James Franklin. We probably could use the sun reflecting off of his head to signal for help.

Mick Walker's picture

Harbs, I want long talks on the beach about never beating Ohio State and how that makes him feel.

BurningRiverBuckeye's picture

Was Avery the only one that got the memo about this AMA? 

HS
Barfolomew's picture

Are there really three separate human interns or are these Kevin's aliases that he can blame for things?

HS
Mick Walker's picture

I am Kevin’s burner account that he only uses with his non-dominate hand because he is getting too good.

Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?

The bobbleheads hate the offseason.

Another standard question: Pizza crust - thick or thin?

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS
JL Kirven's picture

Thin with tons of toppings 

HS
Major H's picture

Best answer yet!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS
Mick Walker's picture

Thick crust. It’s pizza and breadsticks.

chibucks's picture

The three of you are kidnapped by a harbaugh and he has you fight to the death and only one can get out alive - who makes it out?

HS
JL Kirven's picture

Harbaugh catching a Buckeye? That's hilarious. 

HS
Major H's picture

Another correct answer! JL is on a roll!

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

With his record against Ohio State, I think we would be the ones beating him.

Mick Walker's picture

Me, simply because I would ask him too many questions about recruiting and he would start crying then kick me out.

Barfolomew's picture

Is Starcat still on staff or did he leave with DJ?

HS

Two questions:

  • Given the rapidly changing landscape that is sports reporting/publication (i.e. the slow death of traditional media and the rise of internet publications), do you view firm, long-term career strategies viable for those starting out within this industry? Why or why not?
  • Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized Ramzys or 1 Ramzy-sized duck?
HS
Mick Walker's picture
  • I just talk to high school football players
  • I would fight all of them.
JL Kirven's picture

I'll start with the easy one. 

- A ramzy-sized duck and I'd put it with roasted potatoes afterward. 

- My long-term career strategy would be to not think long-term. The business changes often and young sports journalists need to be able to adapt. That said, the old-school is still the best school. Hard-core reporting and great storytelling will always reign supreme. The only thing different is the packaging. Want readers to read a feature? Put a short visual piece with it. Want to enhance your beat coverage? Produce a podcast to engage fans even more. The best strategy will be to embrace versatility and creativity. While it is sad to see the demise of the traditional newspaper, it'll also be interesting to see how this industry will continue to evolve. 

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

I sure hope so. When I was a kid, I told everyone I wanted to be a sports writer when I grew up and 12 years later it's still around. I think that sports reporting and publication has been able to move with the growth and development of technology and I think that will continue with time. Hopefully I understood your question correctly!

I have an intense fear of flying animals so probably 100 duck-sized Ramzys.

No we have to beat Dan in a mile to get into Slack. He lapped me..

I hate the offseason.

Best Star Wars movie? 

Connor Brown

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

Return of the Jedi is my favorite, because I always like the end of a trilogy the most. I think Empire Strikes Back is the best though.

KBonay's picture

Dream vacation?  Island in the sun?  Top of the mountain with fresh power?  Any other answer is wrong, btw. 

HS
JL Kirven's picture

Idk about dream, but I've always wanted to go to Argentina.

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

As much as I want to be, I'm not really an outdoorsy type. I could go for island in the sun, but I can't sit on the beach all day. 

GoBucks10's picture

Surfing with a bunch of tourists doesn't count?

I hate the offseason.

You’re in a 3-3 Basketball game to 11 against Mookie Blaylock, Larry Bird and Shaq 

Who is guarding those 3 and what’s the final score?

I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.

Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan

HS
JL Kirven's picture

Shaq will matched up with me, Larry will be guarded by myself and I'll take Mookie. 

Final Score: J.L. 11-0 (everybody knows journalists can play better than athletes)

HS
Avery DePaola's picture

Shaq may have almost a 2-foot height advantage on me, but after a hard-fought battle in the paint, we come out with the win. Final Score: 3-0

I guess you had to quit on account of darkness?

Welcome aboard, triplets...hope each of you have a great experience here on 11W.

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain?
