An Article You'll Never Read about Ohio State's Secondary
Checkmate: Wolverines bond through chess
MGoBlog's AOL page
When imagining the Ohio State equivalent, I'm reminded of Christian Slater's line in
Heathers: "This is Ohio. If you don't have a brewski in your hand you might as well be wearing a dress." I need some help filling in the blank: "Buckeyes bond through _________" $500 handshakes from boosters? Choking Wisconsin quarterbacks? Leading the police on a high-speed chase with an assault rifle, a bottle of vodka, and a lint brush? Comparing 0.0 GPAs? Sharing notes from AIDS Awareness class?
At this stage, a Buckeye could easily drop in and suggest filling in the blank with "comparing multiple yellow pants pins representing numerous victories over Michigan," so I should be quiet now.
Incidentally, I shared the article with a Buckeye friend and when she came back with the obligatory "NERDS!!!" remark, I responded that I liked to think of Michigan's players as upholding the Greek/Jeffersonian ideal of balance between body and intellect...until the secondary lets Ginn or Gonzalez behind them, at which point I'll loudly proclaim that "we have a bunch of f***ing Steven Hawkings playing corner!!!"
