Life In a Border Town...

Gets very interesting on Game Day.

Game Day. OSU vs. Michigan. A rivalry that inspires such passion in their fans that one is literally not safe driving a car into Columbus with a Michigan bumper sticker or license plate. It causes countless bar fights, sells a hell of a lot of merchandise for both teams, and can actually divide some families.

Well I guess it doesn't divide every family...


It also causes a certain blogger to do insane things. Like build a bonfire and set her favorite sweatshirt ablaze after a particularly tough loss.


Living just two miles from the Ohio State/Michigan border means that one is just as likely to see an OSU flag flying outside a house as a Michigan flag.



It's really a cool thing, driving around on Game Day. Everyone's decked out in their colors, everyone's talking about the game... From experience I can tell you that tonight the ER's will be slammed... I won't miss that.

I don't know how the game is going to go today (for those of you die hard OSU fans, don't get too cocky, stranger things have happened...), but I have hope.


Go Blue, Baby!

Ha, I did something similar to that fire...but it was a work uniform shirt

Although, like most of the fires around you today probably are, its cause was officially listed by the fire marshal as "WAY too much beer"

Tough loss for Big Blue. Having said that...I thought Rich Rod's troops really looked great fighting with coaches on the sidelines and your kicker trying to walk through TBDBL's script Ohio at the end of halftime was nothing but class (much like RichRod himself).

Give him a longer term contract since he is leading your team in a manner Um can be proud of. Stay classy, Blue!
