Alright a friend asked me this question on sunday when we went to grab a bite to eat at Steak and Shake. He said to me "Ok here's a hypothetical question? I know your a Michigan fan so this question is one your going to love." I rolled my eyes and gave him a kind of fuck off look but I bit and said "ok." He asked me, "if you were to get a package and inside the box was full of Ohio State hats, shirts and other stuff that was a gift sent from one of your family members for Christmas would you either A. Keep it. B Sell it on Ebay. C.Give to your friends or D. Burn all of it. This one was tough because you can always sell shit like this on Ebay but you would have the awkward feeling of being a Michigan fan selling OSU gear for profit. If you burn it well your not just destroying an OSU gift but a gift given from one of your family members as well so then there comes the guilty feeling. I answered C. I'd rather have typical Buckeyes stuff their houses with this shit than having it stay in mine. I wouldn't sell it because in my opinion it's worthless to me. Keep it? FUCK NO. What would you guys of mgo blog do?
I would have relatives who know better.
Seconded. Not one of my family members would look past the fact that I went to Michigan to buy me all sorts of OSU garbage. Further, if a family member of mine did overlook that huge, glaring detail about me, I wouldn't feel the least bit bad about setting their gift ablaze.
Exactly, if anyone ever did that, it would be for the sole purpose of pissing me off. I would oblige and throw all the gear directly into the fireplace (which is always going on Christmas day)

Sell it and give the money to Mott
Very righteous, +1. I think using a bit of the money on some grammar lessons for the OP wouldn't hurt, either.
your ≠ you're, etc.
..with the comment on grammar. A little bit of white space wouldn't hurt, either. The original post could have been seperated into three or four paragraphs, and the choices could have each had their own line, like the format on any multiple choice test at school.
This would have been so much easier to process, both visually and thematically, that I might have actually read the entire post the first time around instead of skimming it.
I'd just stuff it down the throats of the jerk-off that decided to give me it. Probably would be Grandpa Ned that has no idea what team I liked, though. But he's lived a good life right?
I would poop on it, then send it to my good friend and his family for christmas(osu grads through the fam)
they might think you sent them a Brutus to go with their shirts.
I've been telling myself I'm not ready to get a puppy for ages now, but if I could line the little angel's cage with OSU shirts I'd go to the pound tomorrow.
who comes up with this shit??
Apparently there's always more shit to be thrown down there.
to Goodwill. Kind of like making something out of nothing.
with OSU garb. In fact I wouldn't curse my enemies with OSU garb.
your enemies are already in OSU garb.
I'd put some points in the karma bank and give it to some homeless hobo because there's a fair chance he's an OSU grad anyway and would really enjoy it.
I would hang the Ohio State hat from my rear view mirror so I could park in handicapped spots.
"Ya done good laddy, now you know what to do. Burn it all!"
Burning them would probably release some kind of demonic death mist, endemic to the contract with the devil that Jim Tressel signed.
Selling them and giving the proceeds to Mott would be a tremendous idea. That would be more angelic.
And, if you knew the relative was being a smart-ass, respond in kind by sending a bundle of "Worst State Ever" shirts, 20% off this month at MGoStore!
i like the idea of leaving it in a bag in an area of town that has lots of homeless people and that you might travel through frequently. then, take pictures of the homeless people wearing osu gear, post it on the internet with captions like "joe germaine is having a tough day" or "see what you have done to john cooper". i might even pay two of them to fight each other for more gear.
just make a video of you burning it all and post it on youtube, i rather make money that way than selling useless garbage on ebay
I'd make a post on MGoBlog and ask everyone what they would do. Then I'd go with the majority vote because I can't think for myself.
with a caveat.
Try to find the single, most desperate person in need that could benefit from these items.
Give him the clothes under one condition: that he puts them all on (hopefully there would be a shirt that says "property of Ohio State University" or "Proud Ohio State Alum" or some such thing) and you get to take his picture.
Thus, you have helped someone truly in need, and you get a picture to post on all of the Ohio State web sites.
Burn it, obviously.
Kill it with fire.
I know exactly which relative would be giving me these hats, and I would have absolutely no problem torching said hats.
I see nothing wrong with selling it. Bring some of that Ohio money up into Michigan.
C. Give it to your friends
Shouldn't this properly read C. Insult/lose your friends.
