3 Yards and a Cloud of Links

On June 15, 2012 by Chris Holloway



Each Friday, The Empire will bring you the best of the web, Ohio State edition, a collection of links and notes from around the quilting circle known as the Ohio State media. We scour the tubes so that you don’t have to.



It is with great pleasure that the Empire announces that we have assimilated Buckeye House Call and allied ourselves with the Buckeye Blogger Network, a loose affiliation of 7 Ohio State sites each dedicated to bringing you free Ohio State news, with a twist. What this means is that you’ll see articles here on the Empire that tie in with other BBN sites on quite a few occasions. We’re very proud to be accepted into this semi-prestigious group of miscreants. Here’s what they had to say over the past week.

I call shenanigans. Unless it was one of those "drumstick" things or a McDonald's cone, there's no way you did it all in one bite. Plus, no self respecting human would eat ice cream at McDonalds... So, in conclusion: Shenanigans.
