I think I know what happened last night. The post "Saturday Rituals" by CCOLLINS0325 last week has me thinking about it. Last night I had to go to a party with my girlfriend and succumbed to her pleas to wear a regular shirt, which is totally against my ritual game habits. In order for the Buckeyes to win I have to 1. Be wearing my red OSU surgical scrub top 2. Be at my favorite watering hole 3. Be drinking Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale. To my everlasting shame, I have to admit to my brothers & sisters in S & G that 1. I was wearing a red polo shirt (very scarlet, though) 2. At a party (all OSU fans). 3. Drinking Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (at least it was a tolerable ale). I believe that I may have almost cost us the game. I did, however, in a moment of resolute determination & increasing blood alcohol levels go out to my car & get the OSU scrub shirt at halftime, causing the Bucks to just squeak this one out. Now, considering that Indiana scored 49 points on us, I want to know if any of you ALSO broke your gameday rituals & helped contribute to this debacle. Come on now, come clean.... You forgive me, I forgive you.
