When my buddies and I would pre-game at our UV apartments before the walk down to the Shoe, we would make 32 oz. plastic tumbler Bloody Mary's that would last the whole walk down Olentangy and the last song that was played before walking out the door...

My sister earned a partial scholarship from Nationwide Children's when she was a senior at BG and one of the stipulations was that she hired on with them following graduation.  25+ years later she is still there and loves it.  Their growth and reputation is beyond measure.

I would say it really depends on what her degree is in and what she wants to do with it because each of the hospitals are excellent but each has some things that set it apart from the other depending on the field.

Thanks so much for all of the outstanding work that you do Aubrey.  I was the Women's Volleyball beat reporter for the Lantern in 1995 and I sure wish there was a platform like 11W back then for expanded coverage of the other OSU teams that we covered.

With all of the increased popularity in hockey, especially at the collegiate level.  Is there any talk of expanding the tournament to 32 teams and add one round to the tournament or a few more teams and having 4 more teams play "play-in games" like basketball has done??

Is your new job in the NW/North End??

Comment 10 Feb 2017

I just saw a tweet from OSU's women's team about story on their new home in the Covelli Center which is very exciting given the history of success in the Big10 and NCAA tournaments for the ladies.

But please tell me that the current defending Men's National Champions, who hopefully will steamroll to another title this year, will be playing in the same center once it's built.

Grand Canyon is about 4 hours by car and Zion is about 2.5 hours.  Both are spectacular but if you like hiking craziness hike the Angels Landing in Zion.

Thanks so much Brohio for all of your insights and responses to our inquiries.  I meant to send this inquiry months ago but lost where the thread was last and forgot about it until watching their preview last night prior to the opening of the competition season tomorrow.

My daughter is a HS senior and her co-ed showchoir is performing an awesome show with the lead song being Learn to Fly by the Foo Fighters and a bunch of other current/former hits and one of the songs of the high school's all-girls showchoir (showchoir is a big deal can you is Black Cat by Janet Jackson along with other hits and it got me to thinking.  With all of the different ways that modern popular songs are purchased and used in all types of artistic musical settings throughout the nation, do the artists ever inquire (or I guess even really care to know) how their artistic property is utilized/performed??  Would love it if the Foo's could hear their song and how it's presented by them!!!

Penguins fan here.  The key for the Jackets now is how the team responds in the next week or so and heading to the All-Star break in 3 weeks. My Pens I believe were 8-0-2 in their 10 games leading up to the Jackets systematically blowing them out of the Wide 7-1 back on December 22. They are 4-0 since!!!

It's going to be a fun ride to watch my 2 favorite teams fighting for the Metropolitan Division this year!!!  Go Pens, Go CBJ!!!!

Guess I have a pair that pretty much the same except different joints.

Sliding into 2nd base when I was 12 my foot went under the base and got stuck and momentum carried me over the base.  Dislocated right ankle bent at an almost 90-degree angle.  Dr. after negative x-ray felt around and with his middle knuckle found the right spot and one solid pound snapped it back in place.

Another dislocation was my shoulder on a rainy day completing the Confidence Course for admission into Air Assault School.  Reached and grabbed a handful of mud while doing rope climb and fell on right shoulder into the mulch from about 15 feet.  Same thing after negative x-ray doc came in and had a couple of nurses gently pull for traction and one good hit coupled with it snapped my shoulder back in place.

Such a wonderful article indeed AB and if it's ok I would love to add my own personal highlight from this Dispatch feature.

My nephew Alex was the front page photo in the print addition with his proposal to his beautiful girlfriend Raegen.  He told us the whole story yesterday at lunch and it's crazy how the whole thing played out in the lead up to what transpired that was written.

Comment 27 Sep 2016

When I shared the video on FB last night I added the comment "Metallica is Finally Back to being Metallica!!!!"

If they can use songs like this from the new album along with selected classics, this tour should be epic!!!!

Comment 12 Sep 2016

It's too bad that Lloyd Noble Center is a good 10 blocks from Gaylord Stadium because I would set it up as close as possible to a Saturday here...Pull up the team buses to the arena with a full Skull Session going on, have Urban walk the team through and address briefly, then walk to the stadium through the Legion outside and have TBDBITL march across and get ready to enter for pre-game.

Comment 09 Sep 2016

I wish TBDBITL would honor Orlas King properly and play Neutron Dance one last time on the field on the anniversary of his passing and then formally retire it, except maybe for special occaisions.  Nobody cares when they play it 1/2 dozen times during every single game.  

And while I am at it "Hang On Sloopy" is to be played at the end of the 3rd Quarter once only and no need for the moronic stadium announcer to announce it.  He is freaking annoying up there all game.
