OT - mgoblog referenced in article about Ohio

Submitted by Rosey09 on November 8th, 2012 at 5:43 AM

I saw this posted by multiple friends from Ohio yesterday and noticed that it had a lot of views.

However, I'm still not convinced.

"...so basically Ohio is the king of space."

This article, and indeed all of Buzzfeed.com, may mysteriously disappear when the Space Emperor sees it. I will say, however, that I do enjoy Put-In-Bay for this reason below...

I'm from Ohio and I'm being honest, Skyline chili no matter if you get it out of a can, buy it in Columbus or get it at a Reds game in Cincy is gross. The chili is overrated. Why not replace Skyline Chili with the Arnold Classic. I've seen several Michigan fans who are into physical fitness flock to Columbus for this event. 

For the record: Gold Star > Skyline

over 20 years; must say I do like the Skyline and the better half makes some good candy buckeyes (so we can devour them at Michigan tailgates and recitals, etc.).  And I, like Coach Hoke, do also enjoy Montgomery Inn (although we've moved on to Sweet Baby Ray's sauce at home - I guess it's the Chicago roots).

Proudly supporting out of state Michigan tuition for many years...  Do enjoy being a contrarian and wearing my Michigan apparel all around town.

But until one lives here, especially in central Ohio, one really doesn't know what it is like to live in single-mindedly-focused rapid nutcase fanbase college town.  Have met many that think cities like Chicago *must* be the same way - everybody all focused on the Iliini of course.

Anyone have any idea why they're claiming Hot Dogs are from Ohio?

I always heard that the guy who started Coney Island Hot Dogs somewhere in NYC was the person who is given that distinction...(forget his name)
