One of the more nauseating photobombs (anything ohio that is). Looks like it's all in good fun. Kudos to Des for hanging around them...

All in good fun. We laugh when Shane photobombs OSU recruits and we call it a stroke of genius on his part.

I can't remember Desmond's exact words, so I'm paraphrasing this, but he has said something to the effect of that he hopes OSU fans hate him and do stuff like this to him. Must mean that they're still upset about him making a point of leaving the state of Ohio, playing for Michigan, and dominating OSU. Just one more all time great they've missed out on.

The black guy on the left isn't making an "O", he's clearly and definitively making a heart shape.  I think this group just loves them some H-I-I-O, whatever that is. 

 

Also, is Jeff Goldblum the "O"?  If I were in his party, I'd be wary of T-Rex's in proximity.

good natured, no big deal, and funny.  I wish stuff like this came to define the back and forth we have with our rivals more than the vitriol that's usually served up.

This photobomb seems pretty harmless and all in good fun.

I always want Michigan to beat Ohio. Still, I don't "hate" them the way Bama fan Updyke hated Auburn (poisoning the trees at Toomer's Corner) or the guy who vandalized Howard's Rock at Clemson last week. So, not worst photobomb ever.

I will make occasionally friendly wagers with my wife's family members who went to school there, and we'll rib each other, but it doesn't work well to "hate" and be nasty when you have family members with a different allegiance.

Interestingly, it often seems like athletes will tease each other, and make wagers (for instance, on the wearing of jerseys from the other team, if your team loses) but they know where the line is.

I'm curious about something else for Michigan fans in Ohio. (I'm looking at you in particular, MGrowOld, but there are plenty of other MGoUsers from Ohio.) Today, I was given the choice of T-Shirts that went with my HTTV order. I'm not cool enough for the Brian photobomb shirt. A couple are too obscure for me. I debated the "Worst State Ever" shirt, but ended up choosing "Manball." Regardless, I wondered how many Michigan fans living in Ohio have the cojones to wear "Worst State Ever" t-shirts. Somehow, I'm not sure how that would go over anywhere in the state.

and have lived in the Columbus area since graduating from Michigan in 1990...  I must say the only negative is rabid Buckeye fan, and they are manageable.

My favorite shirt is still "East Lansing is a woman of negotiable affection" or similar...  I can't go for the "Worst State Ever", mostly because I am raising my kids here and we all kinda like it.

Don't get me wrong, I love Michigan and we vacation up there every summer.  We can't move there though because my wife from Atlanta is already beyond her Northern limits.

Good call on the shirt.

Thanks for the help, jackass. For some reason the pic didn't show up at all using Chrome on my work computer (that's the only browser I have there). Works fine at home. Thought it might have been an issue for others as well (who may not have said anything because of internet tough guys like you).

That was a tribute to an Ohio alum or supporter and is not in poor taste at all, IMO.  I'm sure the deceased would have loved this (if he were not, you know, drowsy). 

The guy who posted the pic was using a thing called sarcasm. 

Otherwise welcome aboard newbie.

Shame that statue is gone. More of a shame it was in ohio and had idiots like this doing this junk. Was quite something to see driving down 75 on the way to Florida for a long time. RIP Big Butter Jesus.
