We're living in uncertain times during the COVID-19 outbreak, but Ohio is gonna get through it together – and have some fun along the way.
Last week, Chris Spielman gave us all a simple drill that could double as a way to clean your floors. Since then, he's done much, much more, giving us what pretty much works out to an entire training regimen for an All-American linebacker.
And as someone trapped at home, I can't complain.

Keep 'em coming, Chris. By the time this quarantine is over, I'm going to be a Hall of Famer.
- Ohio has 1,933 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 39 deaths.
- How Batelle's mask sterilization process works.
- Ohio schools will remain closed until at least May 1.
- Columbus convention center will serve as a joint surge center for COVID-19 response.
- Don't worry about shopping, getting delivery, or receiving packages.
We're all adjusting to this COVID-19 stuff on the fly, and that includes Kroger, who currently seems a bit confused.
Pro tip: most of Kroger's deals work for a single item as well, but that doesn't make the sign combination any less hilarious.
Humans Being Human
All Hands on Deck
With Ohio – and the world – facing a shortage of medical supplies in the midst of a global epidemic, someone needs to step up and try to meet the demand.
Today's hero is Claire Coder and Aunt Flow – a company that typically makes menstruation products but is now producing masks.
Columbus based business owner, Claire Coder and her team stepped up to help. Her company, Aunt Flow, is known for making menstruation products and dispensers for businesses to place in their bathrooms.
"When businesses started closing and everything started going remote, our business started struggling," Coder said. "We're a small business and our customers were closing. We didn't know how to support."
"We started thinking and realized the main necessity is personal protection equipment and masks. We obviously focus on making sure menstruation products are available. But, it is very much in line with our company and our values to be able to adjust and to respond to the need."
Aunt Flow is currently producing about 100,000 masks per day out of one of their bases in China. The hope to continue to increase that production as the pandemic continues.
I am thoroughly impressed by their quick response. Adjusting an entire company like that can't be easy.
Dublin Schools Step Up
Schools aren't in session, but that doesn't mean they can't make an impact in the community in other ways, and Dublin City Schools are stepping up, donating over 3,000 N95 masks to Ohio Health.
With everyone coming together like this, coronavirus is in trouble.
Take Me Home
It's been a bit since the Terrelle Pryor days, but I'll never get tired of watching the world's smoothest 3.38 40-yard dash.
Almost a decade later, it still seems unfair that college kids had to try to tackle that lab experiment.
