When In Rome...
And root for OSU. Today was opening day for college football, and the
fan base here in Columbus for this football team goes to extreme levels.
The whole town is decked out in scarlet and grey. Not a native Ohioan, I
find this level of devotion for a college football team teetering on the edge of
insanity. I knew it was a popular team prior to moving to here, having been
aware of their victories, however I wasn't aware of the level of worship
these residents have for a group of college kids whose heads have swelled
to the size of watermelons, thanks to generous media coverage, both
broadcast and print.
Needless to say, as I was trying to clean my house while I had a teething
baby crying, a 4 year old complaining about the rain, there was the game
on in the background. So, I'm trying to fit in. I really am. But I can't tell you
who won the game.
