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.
If you're a bobblehead fan and a COVID-19 hater, today is your day.
Thanks to The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, you can now preorder a Mike DeWine bobblehead, with $5 from every sale going towards the Protect The Heroes fund in support of the 100 Million Mask Challenge.
“During these unprecedented times, we want to continue to raise funds for an amazing cause while putting a smile on people’s faces with bobbleheads,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar told the Columbus Dispatch. “We received a lot of requests to make a bobblehead of Governor DeWine and other Governors who have been instrumental in the continued fight against COVID-19, so we’re excited to be releasing the bobblehead today.”
- Ohio has 14,581 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 649 confirmed deaths.
- People around the country wonder if they've already had the virus.
- Details of Ohio's partial reopening won't come until Monday.
- Ohio institutions are working for vaccines and treatments.
Globetrotters Zoom Bomb
There have been few things more smile-inducing during this pandemic than watching children get zoom-bombed by their heroes, and here's the latest one.

Good Guy Gee
Gordon Gee's no longer Ohio State's president, but he's a Buckeye for life in my mind, and he's still doing things to make us all proud.
I will be giving back 10 percent of my salary to the University community. I have asked other senior administrators to reduce their salaries or make a comparable charitable contribution to the University. All agreed to do so without waver.
And on May 5, alumni and friends will have the opportunity to provide direct scholarship support for our students during #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving created to help meet the unprecedented need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The WVU Foundation will host a 24-hour online fundraising event to benefit the Gray Student Emergency Fund, which provides emergency financial aid and unrestricted scholarship support to students experiencing a sudden financial hardship.
So, despite an uncertain future, this I know: As a campus community, I am incredibly proud of the sacrifices you have made and the initiative you have shown. Together, our concerted efforts will make a lasting difference for our long-term financial health.
We will weather this storm.
The way we're going to get through this is by helping each other. Props to Gee for leading that by example.
