Yes, what Pravda was to the former Soviet Union, the Dispatch is to Tosu*. Which is why I got a chuckle yesterday after reading an email from our pal, Surrounded in Columbus (who, as his screen name indicates, is a Michigan fan living in the belly of the beast). In the wake of Ohio State's 10-7 loss to MSU, he sent us a picture of the front page of Sunday's Dispatch along with the following:
Sorta like "Where's Waldo?", this is "Where's the Buckeye?" headline.
First time in years that the tosu game is NOT a front page story. Quarter inch banner and reference to the sports section? Unheard of.
It's a very quiet morning in Cowtown.
UPDATE: Something tells me the football team will be on the front page tomorrow!
