I may start sending copy requests your way.

This is fantastic.  However, poor choice of colors by Archie.

the only two time Heisman winner doesn't care about colors.

How stoked are those 3 dudes to have that PIC?

It probably ices their E.I.T. exam results. It would mine.

If I were those guys, I would request a copy of that photo, blow it up to like 36 x 48, and hang that sucker over my mantel. Forever. That is priceless.

Not to judge a book by its cover...

I'm not sure THOSE 3 guys ultimately care too much about the football team

What 3 guys?  I just see Archie doing jumping jacks in a suit.

haha, I'll take my licks for the previous comment I suppose. Generally though, I would think those guys care a whole lot less for our football team and don't care so much that our two time heisman trophy winner is photobombing them.

Harsh but probably true.

Archie is the President of Ohio State's Alumni Club. Those guys might be interest in that if not football. 
Archie represents........period.

Yes and fat people don't like salad and big muscular people don't like reading.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I love saying "Not to judge a book by its cover" then immediately doing that.  That would be like me saying "Not to downvote an ignorant and useless comment, but..."

You have to say, "With all due respect" first.  Then you can say whatever you want and nobody can get mad.  It's the truth, look it up.

Your other option is to conclude the commentary with "...Bless their hearts."
Maybe that only works if you're a Southern Belle...

rdubs's picture

"Just saying" works well too.

With all due respect, that aint worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin it on.

Right on Doc, haha I'll keep that in mind next time I make a lighthearted comment


KBonay's picture

I'm not sure I get your comment either.  Just because they are not wearing a jersey or a buckeye necklace, rather than a tie, around their neck, makes them any less of a fan?  They seemed dressed appropriate for the occasion.  I mean, that is what I love best about Buckeye nation. It's everywhere.  And you never know who is part of it.  I live in SoCal and run into Buckeyes all the time, who, by the way, were not flying the scarlet & gray at the time.  I just found out my doctor of 2 years was a Case Western Med School and Buckeye undergrad.  He may not have 'looked' like a Buckeye...but once he got going.....
Go matter what you look like.

That's fun, Ohio State fun right there.

Can we get this over to Mark May please?

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

All I want is one picture with Archie. Is that too much to ask?? That's three lucky peeps.

Doc's picture

I'm with ya Cajun.  I've got his autograph, but a photo with him would be stellar.  It doesn't even have to be me, one of my boys would suffice.  But myself and the two boys with Archie would be jizzstastic.
I'll confess that I never saw Archie play, at all.  I'm a huge fan for what he is.  He is the best ambassador a school/organization could have.  When somebody says, "What is a Buckeye?" Archie's face pops into my head.  You know Archie will never besmirch his good name or the universities.  You know he is a stand up guy.

Can I be a jerk and share my Archie photo?
Yeah, 'cause who doesn't love getting their picture taken with Archie!!!
Andy Vance and Archie Griffin, 2010
This was at the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences' 2010 "Ag Fallfest" tailgate party. Cool, right? Archie is a true class act.

Doc's picture

Nooiiccee  Andy.  Way cool.  I would have it framed, and then it would replace my wedding photo on my desk.  "With all due respect Honey, it is two time Hiesman Trophy winner Archie Griffin!"  BAM!  Can't get mad!

I've managed to get a photo with him three times now: Once before Ohio State/Miami, once before Ohio State/USC at USC, and once before the Rose Bowl. All were at Ohio State functions. All you really have to do is go up and ask...

cajunbuckeye's picture

Andy, you are a real jerk. That picture is sssssswweeeeet!!!! I'm photoshopping myself into the background for a "photobomb".

Perhaps this is a Photoshop Phriday waiting to happen...

Fantastic idea, Andy, on a Photoshop Phriday subject.  I'm delving into the historical cache as we speak...

AndyVance's picture

God, I can't wait to see the art you create for that one :)

Andy, when were you in college of Ag?

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

AndyVance's picture

Originally I was there from 2000-2002, and then I went pro after my sophomore season. Came back in Spring 2010 as a wizened "adult" and finished in six quarters, finally grabbing the sheepskin in August 2011.

Archie is TOSU's B.O.A.T. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

 That is an awesome pic. I would love to take Archie to Dinner, he is all class. I wonder if he likes to be called MR. Heisman. 

CowCat's picture

Archie Griffin has been the center of the Ohio State Universe (tm) since I was 5 years old.
I still remember the two Heisman trophies on display in Saint John Arena when you walked in  ... to see Kelvin Ransey.  LOL.

Wouldn't it be awesome to be Archie Griffin for a day? Yeah, if only...
