Go Bucks!!

Ok.....for all of those women who do not care to discuss football in any form.....this is not the blog to read this morning.

Ohio State beats Michigan!! This is the sound that rang out across the land yesterday afternoon as the Buckeyes claimed the Big Ten title yesterday in Ann Arbor. This is the fourth straight win over Michigan. The Wolverines looked like the same team that was beaten by Appalachian State earlier in the season. With that in mind, it's no doubt that we are now expecting Lloyd Carr to announce his retirement today. You cannot be expected to continue on as Michigan's head coach after taking repeated beatings from The Ohio State Buckeyes. He has lost the last 6 of 7 meetings.

Once again I joined in on the fun and frivolity with my OSU alumnae friends. Calling them fans is an understatement. I don't think there is a fan-base stronger than what they have coming out of Columbus. We are talking grandiose, huge proportions here. I too have my Buckeye wardrobe especially for a game like yesterday. Thanks to my friend Emily......I am completely "accessorized" with buckeye necklaces and buckeye earrings. Real buckeyes on those accessories folks. Yep.....the real thing!

It was a fun afternoon all in all and the topper was the smacking down of the Wolverines in their own house. Yeah....really sweet. This was Lyn's first exposure to the whole Buckeye gameday phenomena with my friends so she was caught up in it pretty quickly. She too received her very own buckeye necklace which she wore proudly for the duration of the game. She was a bit concerned when we went out and played a light round of touch football at half time. She didn't participate of course since she is still recuperating from her knee surgery. She stood by to ensure that she wouldn't need to drive me to the hospital after some freakish football accident. No worries was a very light toss-around game and all in good fun for a brief 15 minutes. A great day for football and a great win for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

So Michigan.........who's your daddy?
