As a proud graduate of the University of Illinois, it’s hard being in Ohio State’s territory! I hate Ohio State football with a firey passion…but I have to say, they are the most loyal, devoted fans. I don’t even think this state realizes they have 2 NFL teams! 😉
And everywhere you go near to Columbus, be prepared to hear “Hang on Sloopy” on repeat. I’m a fan of the song, but it is everywhere. Cell phone rings. Bar music. Radio. Crazy…
…And then there’s the buckeyes. When my friends who are OSU fans wear a necklace of buckeyes, it’s fun to call them poisonous. And I mean, a poisonous nut as a mascot? C’mon. But to EAT? Heavenly. It’s almost a traditional welcome gift to the Columbus region…
And Gina got us buckeyes last night!
Mr. Prevention and I got to meet up with Gina and Nick last night! This was great because 1) Gina has never had a blogger meet-up before, 2) it was a gorgeous night to sit out on a patio, and 3) we now have friends in Columbus!
Gina and Nick were a blast and I was sad to see the night end. But I have a good feeling there will be more to come 🙂
I have a date with the hotel treadmill and then off for another busy, productive day in Columbus! 😀 I haven’t worked out the past 2 days and I need to stay on track for my 101 Days of Summer challenge to run 70 of the next 101 days!
Question: Have you ever had a buckeye treat? What college team do you root for and what team is your #1 rival?
