Okay, here they are:
1.) I had completely forgotten about the Rockers, thanks USAFHummer. The other 3 are: the Cleveland Indians (Baseball), the Cleveland Browns (Football), and the Cleveland Cavaliers (Basketball).
2.) Delta Airlines, Comair, and DHL all have hubs at CVG. In addition to these three, Sunworld International Airlines, a charter company with a small fleet of 727-200's, is also based in CVG.
3.) A Buckeye is the nut from the Buckeye Tree, the state tree of Ohio. A "Buckeye" is also a term used for someone who attends or is an alumnus of The Ohio State University.
4.) The Wright/Patterson Air Force Base and Museum is located in Dayton. Definitely a great place to go for anyone who loves aviation.
5.) Cleveland is the only city in Ohio to have a commuter rail system. The RTA, commonly known as "the Rapid," connects Cleveland's outer suburbs and the airport to the main hub at Tower City in downtown Cleveland. Also, Columbus is looking into building a commuter rail line to be called "FastTrax" in 2005, and Cincinnati is also looking into commuter rail.
6.) There are a few: "WKRP in Cincinnati"/Cincinnati, "The Drew Carey Show"/Cleveland, "Third Rock from the Sun"/ Rutherford (a fictional suburb of Cleveland), and "Normal, Ohio"/ To the best of my knowledge, there is no Normal, Ohio.
7.) James Thurber was born in Columbus. His house is now a museum in the downtown area.
8.) The Goodyear Tire Company is headquatered in Akron. "The Spirit of Akron" one of Goodyear's airships, was manufactured in Akron.
9.) At 888 ft. and 57 stories, Ohio's tallest building is Key Tower, in Cleveland, owned by Key Bank. Actually, Ohio's three tallest buildings are in Cleveland. Terminal Tower (Tower City) at 708 ft. is the second tallest and BP America at 658 ft. is the third. The fourht is in Columbus, the Rhodes State Office Tower, at 629 ft.
10.) The Toledo Art Museum. Arguably the best art museum in Ohio, it is famous around the world for its collection of El Greco paintings, and has an extensive glasswork collection.
11a.) Jack Hanna was the Director of the Columbus Zoo. Before he took the position, the zoo was a complete dump. Now, it is a model facility prized for its many exhibits and extensive primate research. Many of the animals Jack Hanna brings with him to such shows as "The Tonight Show" and "Larry King Live" are from the Columbus Zoo.
11b.) COSI stands for "Center Of Science and Industry." COSI currently has two musuems: the original, COSI Columbus, and also COSI Toledo. Cleveland has a similar musuem called the Great Lakes Science Center.
12.) "Tall Stacks" is an annual riverboat show in Cincinnati. Riverboats from all around flow up the the Ohio River to Cincinnati to take part in the event.
Thanks to all who participated. Hope you enjoyed it.
