College football bowl games and NASCAR races frequently shoehorn their sponsor's name into their title, often to forehead-slapping results. My favorite example of this is the "Pork- the Other White Meat 400."

Spot on- I was at that game in the press box as a media member. It looked pretty bleak at the time.

My GF is a huge Kentucky hoops fan. I was at work so I could chuckle out loud while simultaneously being sympathetic over FB messenger. Dec. 21 is going to be interesting at my house.

I had a weird one for a while. It's been a dozen or more years, but during one game, the score was close at halftime, and I had a bunch of pent-up nervous energy, so I went outside and shoveled the crap out of my dog's pen to release some of it. The Buckeyes ended up coming back and winning that game, so that was my halftime ritual for a few years after that.

Lately, it's just the standard lucky hoodie and red skivvies. For the Xich game, I break out the #11 Antoine Winfield jersey I've had since 98.

It's Buckeyes only for me on Saturdays, with the occasional check-in on the big games, until the weather starts to get colder. My football watching increases as the temperature drops.

Side note to bailing on the Purdue dumpster fire: On Monday, I found out that an acquaintance from a past job passed away that Saturday. 94 years old, WWII vet, lifelong Buckeye fan. When my buddy told me, my reaction was "I hope he checked out before that Purdue shitshow."

Purdue 2018. I decided that since I only get two evenings off per week, I wasn't going to spend one of them making myself miserable over a piss-poor performance. Middle of the 3rd quarter, me and the gf met up with another couple and I got thoroughly obliterated.

Wow, never heard that about Bellotti. I was actually rooting for him to get the job. Exhibit #325,728 of "Shows you what I know."

GIFs are cool and all, but I'm not gonna make the effort to post one when I can say the same thing with typed words.
