The Buckeye Necklace from Hell

I'm not normally a superstitious guy... except when it comes to Ohio State. 
In 2006, before the Penn State game, I bought this necklace at the Central Classroom bookstore right near the Shoe.

Bad Luck Buckeyes

It's a nice, non-offensive, mass market version of what some other people wear. Nothing near what Big Nut or some of those guys wear, but nice nonetheless.
I wore these all season. That is, until the Buckeyes were destroyed by Florida.
In 2007, I essentially exiled this necklace (along with my #25 Pittman jersey) and didn't really wear them during the season. Except when I went to a tailgate party in early November and a NCG party... both losses (Illinois and LSU respectively).
Since that time, this necklace has hung in various areas of my house. Usually in my office near other OSU memorabilia. That was, until I moved to Indiana. Over the last 13 months, this necklace was apparently in a box in my garage. While clearing out the ol' garage yesterday, I stumbled across this necklace in a dusty box and put it on. I wore it for most of the day because I'm excited for the season to start.
The rest, as they say, is history. 
Now, I'm not blaming an unlucky necklace for a series of unfortunate events. But it is a coincidence, and one that my wife pointed out to me tonight at dinner. So basically, I need to take this necklace to a priest. Or burn it. Or something.   
That is my story. I thought this would be the best place to share it.

I'll get the torches. You other guys round up the pitchforks. And here I was blaming Fickell.

With the size of Buckeye Nation, we have a comparatively large "crazy" section. I hope you don't have your address listed anywhere online where myself  the crazies can find you...

I figure the crazies will get me one day for something. It might as well be this. At least I feel I'll have earned it.

Might be time to offer your nuts ova as a sacrifice.

I carry a lucky Buckeye. I throw it away after a loss. I never replaced the one that was last seen probably on the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium. I like hearing other fans' superstitious minds exposed.

Go Bucks and michigan STILL SUCKS!

I think you treat this like an American Flag:

The United States Flag Code (4 USC Sec 8 Para (k) Amended 7 July 1976) states: "The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."

Burn those Buckeyes before the Navy game kicks off. Say a prayer, 5 hail Woody's, and have a moment of silence then light those things up and put on your new set.

Let us know when the deed is done.

I heard through a source of mine that the only way to get rid of the evil spirits is to dispose of the necklace rectally...thoughts and prayers my friend.
