This is a few days old*, but pretty funny none the less.
Everyday Should be Saturday posted a tidbit in their Curious Index on Jan. 5th:
GOVERNMENT FAILS AGAIN. It should be an easy decision for the elected officials of Oregon, Ohio to change the city's name, at least temporarily. And yet they do nothing. I guess loyalty can't be expected from a state with its own Toronto AND its own Ontario. #Disloyal #Dishonorable #DissectOhioAndShipItBackToCanada
But the city responded:
The city of Oregon, Ohio (est. 1838), a suburb of Toledo, is changing its name for one week as the state prepares for the College Football Playoff Championship between the University of Oregon and Ohio State. Because people there aren’t smart enough to know in which state they reside.
The mayor of the Toledo suburb announced Monday that the city will be known over the next week as “Oregon, Ohio: Buckeyes on the Bay, City of Duck Hunters.”
The name change came about because of a petition started by two Oregon, Ohio residents who don’t even follow Ohio State football. One likes soccer, and the other roots for Michigan.

Cincinnati does not like Ohio.....
According to Scout, cornerback Jeff Christian has decommitted from Purdue and has Michigan interest. No offer yet, but comes from a strong program at Colerain, and senior highlights look pretty good:
According to Freep article, Devin's "widening his options" and will play receiver in the Jan 17 East/West Shrine game. It says Mel Kiper thinks latter rounder in the draft, I'm thinking more towards middle rounds at the furthest likely higher than Denard.
Fits the receiver mold at height and weight, sacrificed during his prime college years, and stuck with the team thru non-stop adversity. Showed flashes of his quality catching skills and overall athleticism during his brief stint.
Would be great to see him get picked up early.
