I grew up in NE Ohio and followed pro sports. OSU was my team if I had to pick a college team. But I never followed college sports. Pretty much only watched the national championship games. Then got to OSU in 2009 and immediately began closely following since then

I’ve been to both La Tavola and Moretti’s as well. I enjoyed both, and enjoy sitting at the kitchen window at La Tavola. Somehow, though, I found myself preferring Caffe DaVinci for a place to eat often, and Pasqualone’s for a more upscale experience. Not that I wouldn’t also return to both La Tavola and Moretti’s.

My four favorite restaurants in Columbus from least to most formal:

Caffe DaVinci in Upper Arlington - fast casual Italian with a very good red sauce and a number of homemade pastas. Best eggplant Parmesan I’ve had. Blackened chicken and pasta combo are both great things to order as well.

El Arepazo - there are three of these (downtown, Brewery district , Gahanna) and they’re fantastic. It’s Peruvian food, but just think delicious Latin American food if you’re not sure what Peruvian entails. The Pabellon (shredded beef or pork with rice and black beans) is phenomenal. The chimichurri carne asada is also great.

Gallo’s Kitchen and Bar - Cajun/Creole + Italian food. Great seafood options. The gumbo and crawfish fusilli pasta are both amazing. Can get pretty crowded and I don’t think they take reservations on the weekend, so get there early.

Pasqualone’s - the best Italian restaurant in Columbus. Reminds me of places I ate in Italy. The food is on par with Italy/mother’s food and that’s very high praise from me. The whole place is a lovely experience, but it is quite expensive and you need a reservation - not sure if there’d be anything available this late.

Hahaha.

No, I wish. Speedcubing and card magic mostly stopped when Med school started. Cooking and exercise are kind of necessary for survival/success in medical school so those, yes. Chess.com is too available and addicting for me, so I blocked it on my router. During time off I occasionally meet a friend at a coffee shop for a game or play correspondence chess with a friend overseas. The rock climbing and pursuit into competitive smash 64 have been new since then end of January (I matched in January and medical school slowed way down).

Board games with groups of friends was something I tried to do throughout medical school - there are a lot of interested med students. It’s hard, but you find a way to fit stuff in, and time to relax with peers that are going through the same trials and tribulations is as therapeutic and necessary as the clinical work.

As for sleep, I’ve always said if I could have a superpower I’d take “always being in perk condition despite lack of sleep/food/water/etc.” I need 7-8 hours/night to really feel maintained. I can do 6/night and function well if I have days when I can catch up a bit.

I’ve kayaked in Hilton Head and will be down there again quite soon. It was fun but a very hot day for kayaking. 

Comment 08 Mar 2018

IMO, this really isn't very different from making racially disparaging comments during an interview to see if you get a "jump" out of the person. 

I agree. And for some reason I don’t see teams making those comments to “gauge reaction.”

Comment 05 Mar 2018

As opposed to what? He suddenly recover from 3 major injuries despite not yet fully recovering (even though the injuries were a long time ago) to where he could play and pass others on the depth chart? Transfer to another program with his very little play time and try to get an opportunity? You don’t think this was a Meyer-Connor conversation that started over a year ago and knowledge of that went into how many players we signed? 

Your “reality check” post needs a reality check

Comment 09 Feb 2018

Speaking of Meyer, I was just at dinner with my wife and in-laws talking to them about the splendor of this recruiting class and this fabulous Wednesday we’ve had, and I looked up and Urban Meyer himself was waving at me from another table!

AlphaZero vs Stockfish is also really interesting for those who have a better understanding of chess than Go. The significance of AlphaGo and AlphaGo Zero can be slightly lost without a preexisting appreciation for the game of Go.

Comment 07 Feb 2018

It is an average. Every recruit gets a rating and it’s an unweighted average.

The total score is not a mere sum of the individual individual scores however. Each recruit contributes to to the total score based on where they fall in the class and their individual rating. If it were a mere sum, class size would be a massively weighted factor

1. We won 1 championship, not 5 in 9 years.

2. I agree. Although Georgia will be #1, and Bama came in with a lot of work to do today. And since Bama has been #1 forever, and they just played in the championship game. The Georgia beating Bama for #1 is a totally reasonable storyline.
