Growing up in Ohio every Saturday afternoon in the Fall meant we watched football, Ohio State football. It is a bit of a cult, its what everyone does whether they have a connection to the unviersity or not. As you can see in the photo below, the girls were decked out in Buckeye wear from the day they were born (thanks Renee!) G-man is not a big sports fan but even he has gotten a bit of Buckeye fever making sure he has the proper attire. He took 3 year old Boobah out the morning of the Ohio State/Michigan game (THE game if you are from either of those states). There was a man in an Ohio State hat in front of him in line and he asked her what it was, first she said "zero" but then he reminded her it was O for Ohio State she replied--"Go Bucks!" Someone behind him then unzipped her coat to reveal scarlet and gray. I am always amazed that here in the land of the Terp there are lots of Buckeye fans.
Tomorrow the whole family will be decked out in Scarlet and Gray and the grown ups will be staying up entirely too late to watch them claim another National Championship and even if they don't we'll still love them and start counting down to the next game that counts Saturday, November 17, 2007.
