This causes me to break out in hives for several reasons:

1. Marrying a Buckeye (Edit: it only makes me break out in hives, not Jim Brandstatter.)

2. Wagering to wear a TSIO shirt in the instance of a loss

3. Actually paying TSIO to rent a toilet for an hour

“It was a total shock,” said Zellers, 28, of Pataskala. “I thought we were just celebrating our 10-month anniversary (which was yesterday).”

Um no...no dude celebrates a 10 month anniversary. No dude ever heard of a 10 month anniversary, because they aren't real.

But good for them. She's cute and didn't actually attend OSU.

I've been married to a Buckeye fan for 2 years.  That tends to happen when you work right next to campus.  It's either a Buckeye fan or it's the baton twirler from high school that got picked on by the cool kids that went to OSU, thus shunning OSU and society in general.  Those are literally the only two options that exist.

I will have to say that it's actually fun being outnumbered.  I (some time in the near future hopefully) can rub it in when we beat them.  I've learned not to celebrate prematurely though, as I once tailgated at the game that Troy Smith took over in the fourth quarter.  I was drunk and very audibly taunting the Buckeye fans I was tailgating with.  By the end of the third quarter I had drank myself into a stupor and somehow fell off a 10 foot tall tennis court fence, ripping my jeans from belt line to the back of my knee in the process.  Later that day, a former OSU cheerleader most likely saved my life as I was dancing on top of an RV, still drunk, and slipped.  Somehow a 120lb girl grabbed me, a 240lb guy, before I fell face first onto the concrete.

The moral of the story is that you should grow up at some point, but always look back at your early twenties and smile at what an idiot you were.  Also, if you have a child with a Buckeye fan you will invariable piss off the in-laws by buying Michigan jerseys in size 2T.  It's totally worth it...

It's one thing to date, even marry, a Buckeye fan. But to propose in the stadium? That is way above and beyond the call. If I was dating a Buckeye fan, I wouldn't ask him to propose in Michigan Stadium. There are certain times when you stay on your side of the fence and I'll stay on mine and we'll all be happy. This is one of them.
