    Nobody wants to feel like a tourist when they are traveling — including those who visit Columbus from other cities in the world. What do you consider “essential equipment” for a native Columbus resident? Or an essential cultural norm to master?

    You have to call Kroger, Krogers. A healthy disdain for the west side doesn’t hurt either.

    Helps to wet yourself whenever anyone says “Hilltop”.

    As to healthy disdains, add red brick to the list.

    Sad to say but true. You need to walk around with a buckeye item on your body or car. When someone randomly says OH! you are expected to reply – IO! but I like to say NO! or GOD! Eat from a food truck. Dine at a Columbus Food League Reataurant and visit German Village.

    I do ask, when you go back to your native land, when asked where you were, please say Columbus not Columbus Ohio.

    Tourist should know that even though we have two Major League Sports teams and a minor league team, they do not matter when we have the Buckeyes. (Sad but true).

    I will take the Buckeyes over ANY pro team in any sport any day!

    I’ve never owned any Buckeye attire and I’ve never had anyone say anything about it.

    Hatred for “that state up north”, because we don’t give a dam for whole state of Michigan, the whole state of Michigan, the whole state of Michigan.
    Even if you vacationed in the UP last year and loved it ;)

    Not making eye contact with anyone just outside the North Market prevents one from having to explain “I don’t have any extra money”.

    For some reason, you must pronounce Morse Road “Morris Road”.

    At least one Comfest mug is a must have for any Columbus local.

    I was a concierge downtown before everyone had smartphones and during the fall a ton of questions were always about the Buckeyes.

    When I first started I remember the dumbfounded looks when I wasn’t able to answer who they were playing that week.

    I have found though, that being able to speak ‘Buckeye’ is a little like being able to play golf and is pretty useful in breaking the ice or finding common ground with people and not just ones from Columbus.
