I give up.
I've tried being that guy who shouts out O-H to people I see wearing OSU gear when out and about. I'm proud to be a Buckeyes fan, I really am. And I always feel an urge to connect with other fans when I see them, but I give up being that guy.
I have to admit, I feel like a total douche when I shout out to complete strangers expecting them to shout back at me. I want to do it, then the moment I do, I feel like a drunk guy stumbling out of the sports bar after a game, shouting at fans and making a fool of himself.
So I give up. It's not for me.
