This coming May 14th my company is getting something known as the "Manny Award" here in Northern Ohio. I have been asked to accept the award for my firm and because of that I will be sitting at the podium for the dinner and award ceremony next to the Keynote speaker Jim Tressel. My question is if you had the opportunity to sit next to him for the evening what would you ask him?
I might add I have had the opportunity to meet Tressel on two other occasions and found him to be extremely personable and friendly (and yes he knew I was a Michigan alum) so I don't want to say anything extremely offensive but I do want to take the opportunity to talk to him a bit about what went really went on at OSU during his tenure. Any suggestions on how to word it so I don't cause a scene but still get him to open up a bit? Any other topics you guys think I should broach while I've got him cornered for the night?
And yes, I plan to wear a yellow dress shirt, navy blue sport coat and my best Michigan tie for the night!
