First Blog Entry - "Some people just don't get it"

OK, So here it goes with my first blog entry here at 11W.  The reason for this unhistorical moment happened today:

Yes, in leading up to "THE GAME" I have worn my colors at work all week.  Today a nice young lady stopped by and asked me:  "Why do you have an Ohio State shirt on today?" 

First off it's not just an Ohio State Shirt, it's a very expensive Red Nike Dry Fit Style golf shirt with block "O" logo with gray football laces at the bottom of the 3-button shirt complete with Nike Logo and Block OHIO STATE lettering at the bottom.  I bought this shirt so it can be worn with black pants or Khakis and still meet business casual dress code at work for big games and showing my allegiance to OSU.  Ok, so my next thought in my mind was what planet are you from and maybe her thoughts were preoccupied with Turkey day and Black Friday.  Hey, I Like great food and a good deal shopping for holiday gifts as much as anyone.  Although I prefer Cyber Monday.

I decided to just say very nicely: "OSU has a big game this weekend" I then proceeded to head back to my cubicle and immediately go to the 11W site to get my fix where people like me hang out and understand each other.  I foolishly assumed all Ohioans were like us folk on here.  Today i realized that is not the case.  I'm relatively new to this site as I became frustrated with another sites "Free Content" being limited to garbage.  I was a Fan of Ramzy's writing and talking to some people they pointed me to the light.  I have been full on to 11W all year and it really has great content.  Shout out to Bill here at my work for linking me in the direction of 11W. 

Why does the time seem to stand still and creep along when the anticipation of THE GAME is on the horizon?  UGGGHH.... I'm ready to get this thing started....At least I have my escape here at work thanks to 11W site and great members with awesome comments and insight....

Todd - Welcome to 11W. Good to have you on board. If you don't mind me asking, where do you live? I mean if you live in Ohio and a lady is asking you why you're wearing an OSU shirt, that's kind of like asking someone in a car "why are you wearing a seatbelt?"

Dayton, OHIO.... For peats sake... Really.... Still dumbfounding to this point that she asked that.

Most Western Ohioans are very... "out there" like most folks in Dayton, Cincinnati, or the rest of the Miami Valley.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Sure we have some "loonies" in the Miami Valley, but we also have some die hard good natured Buckeye fans. Just sticking up for my birthplace.

I'm sorry, which part of the state have the Amish?  Not the southwest.

Hope all had a good turkey day!!!  The planets are back in line.   I have a few choices on where to watch THE GAME.
1.  Over friends house complete with early AM Taligate.  They have very nice theater room with huge projection screen in basement.
2.  At the comfort of my own home with just the in-laws over.
3.  Buckeye Bar.
4.  Go to the Game ?!?!?  Friend just psoted on FB they have 3 sets of two tickets... Not sure the price...
How will you watch THE GAME ?
