A few years ago one of these guys showed up at a High school girls basketball game, 2 hours from Columbus, on Tuesday night in full buckeye gameday garb. No matter the 2 teams that were playing had team colors of Blue and Gold and Black and gold. I guess he had a niece or relative playing on one of the teams. I know many people there felt awkward and the girls thought it a bit creepy.
Even worse, a couple of days before the game, the local newspaper ran a release that this "celebrity" would be at the game. I don't know what is worse, the fact that this guy contacted the local paper or the fact that the paper actually printed it.
