Yep, I've got my team colors on. And they're not blue.

I like Ohio State, I like the rivalry, but I'm certainly not a crazy fanatic. I like the party just as much as I like the team.

This is always a fun day. I enjoy it.

I will be wearing the colors of orange and brown (BGSU's colors)!!!

I don't really care who wins, I just like to "watch" the game and snack!

I'm donning some blue clothes today. And tomorrow.

Though my husband dressed up like Tressel today - quite entertaining, sweater vest and all - for his students.

(the rivalry makes for good football seasons, though literally, we've never watched the game together. Not this year either)

B. is an OSU fan too, TP - embarassing bets are the game of the day. Last year I had to paint my face scarlet and grey for the National Championship. It was painful!

Did YOU know: there will be Michigan graduates who will leave their alma mater never seeing Michigan beat Ohio State.

How 'bout them apples?
