I was just recently at the park with my daughters. The park is surrounded by several softball fields, and today there was some sort of tournament. Once we made our way to the play area, I was greeted by an infestation of buckeye faithful that were there for the softball tournament. I did notice the influx of Ohio license plates in the parking lot, but again I thought I would be safe being that I live in VA. To make matters worse I was wearing my M football shirt and a 1997 football national championship hat. To make a long story longer, I could hear the whispers referencing "scum" and "me chicken" at every slide, monkey bar, and cargo net. Not a good day. Thoughts?
buckeyes at the park.
10000 alumni and 74000 truck drivers can't be wrong.
Haha. Yeah really. My little one was making me laugh because she kept on pushing her way through a sea of kids wearing scarlet and grey on the play equipment. I guess she is starting early in her quest of buckeye hatred.
They should consider themselves lucky. With your special forces background, you could have went Barwis on the entire team. Instead of making them say "uncle", you could've forced them to admit that Miami really won that National Championship game.
Haha. Yeah, trust me Scooby, I'd be lieing if I said it didn't cross my mind. When I was with the 82nd Airborne back in the mid 90's, my company was filled with a ton of buckeye boys. As you can imagine they were quite silent in those days, especially during the 96-97 season. Nowadays when I am encountered with a buckeye boy whether it be in the Hindu Kush or at the Park in VA, I am trashed talked in to the ground. We will have our day in the sun soon. Good years are coming.
had no balls for whispering it and not saying anything directly. That's weak.
On the other hand, to say anything derogatory to anyone with a kid in a park is just plain sad.
So they are weak or sad, take your pick.
Welcome to my world everytime I go to campus wearing Michigan I prettyt much expect a look, glance, slur, something.
Way to stereotype. You must feel proud teaching your kid how to blindly hate in this world.
Sorry if you are offended, but my little ones walk in love daily until someone gives them an excuse to not walk in love. So, yes you are right, I should not have them "hate" someone based on their race, color, creed, or college team choice. Thanks for giving me the Dr. Phil moment.
I'm pretty sure he was joking.
The fuck? Are you serious? Way to have your head up your ass.
Via 32 years in the Navy, I've met quite a few of tOSU faithful. Only 1 was nice...perhaps because he worked for me.
One time, at band camp...er...Al Udeid Airbase in Qatar during the 2003 game, about 75 M! and 75 tOSU fans gathered outdoors (no air conditioning), at 2300, with 85 degrees and around 90% humidity to watch the game sipping our allowed 3 beers. Even there, with all the common bonds created by the deployment, the heat, the dust and living in tents, tOSU fans were asses. However, they were quiet at the end of the game!
Lots of other stories....
They actually called you things like "scum"? Gotta love the classy buckeye following. Nice choice on the shirt today JLOW.
"slide, monkey bar, and cargo net"
...so what were their kids playing on?
OK, fine, quick story. Nobody asked, but I will anyway. I just got back from Mackinac Island, and we always take the St. Ignace ferry because it's less crowded. That means crossing the bridge though. So, with two lanes open at the fare booth, with green lights above them and red lights above the rest, one car decides to try and skip the (short) line and roll up to a red-lighted booth anyway. It sits there for a couple minutes before the driver realizes there's nobody in the booth to take the money, and the reverse-lights come on and it starts backing out. It's at this point I notice the Ohio license plate on the car. Gotta love 'em.
You should have went behind him in the line so he couldn't back up. Then, lean your head against the window and act like you had fallen asleep.
