I'm finally recovering from Monday.  As I mentioned elsewhere, I've finally stopped tearing up every time someone says "fiesta."  Still a little moody, though...

In honor of my guys and all the loyal fans out there, I've decided to take a page from the Jeff Foxworthy book.  Some of these I've done, some of these I've heard about, and others are just common among the Buckeye faithful. Enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You Might Be A Buckeye If...

- If you have ever taken the day off work before a game because you were just too excited to concentrate, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever taken the day off work after a loss because you were just too depressed to concentrate, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever cried (or nearly cried) because your team lost, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever cried (or nearly cried) because your team won, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have (almost) gotten into a fight because someone denigrated "the Vest", you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have driven out of your way to circumvent Ann Arbor, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever driven four hours out of your way to be near (even just for a moment) the stadium where your team is playing the National Championship, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have flown to Arizona to tailgate, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever arrived to the stadium at 6:30 in the morning to tailgate at a game that doesn't start until 8 pm (and you don't have tickets), you might be a Buckeye.

- If you insist upon being INSIDE the stadium an hour before kickoff so you don't miss Ramp, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you won't go to the bathroom at halftime until after the band has played, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you think there is nothing weird about having seven (or so) fight songs, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you think there is nothing weird about your mascot being a poisonous nut, you might be a Buckeye.

- If your wardrobe looks like Brutus threw up in your closet, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you sound like the Dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding ("Give me any program, any person and I will tell you how they tie in to Ohio State Football"), you might be a Buckeye.

- If you hold your breath every time an underclassman is mentioned as a Heisman potential (for fear they might tie Archie's record), you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have, however briefly, considered naming your son Gray and/or your daughter Scarlet, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have had one (or more) pets named Brutus or Woody, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever put scarlet and gray signs in the yard of and toilet-papered in scarlet and gray crepe paper the house of a friend because she's a TSUN fan, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever toilet-papered a co-worker's cubicle in scarlet and gray crepe paper because he's a TSUN alum, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you hesitate to date someone from Michigan because they might have gone to TSUN, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you consider it a mixed marriage when someone weds a TSUN grad/fan, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you call your children/nieces/nephews from said mixed marriage "the little b-*-st-*-rds", you might be a Buckeye.

- If you won't get married in the fall for fear they might schedule a game during the bye week, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have disappeared from your friend's wedding reception (even though you are part of the wedding party) because they stupidly scheduled the ceremony on game day, you might be a Buckeye.

- If finding out that Brent Musburger (or Bob Griese) is announcing the game causes you to break out in hives, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you won't go to Meijer on the day of THE game because it is a Michigan-based store, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you cringe a little when you go to IKEA because of the color scheme (even though you LOVE that place), you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever given away or refused to buy something because it had a blue and yellow color palate, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever avoided purchasing a blue car, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you play marching band music in your car every Saturday in the fall, you might be a Buckeye.

- If people have stared at you at stoplights or in parking lots because they've never heard a boom-car playing marching band music, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you feel the need to use the word "cesspool" when someone else says "Hail" or "Victors", you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have to suppress a gag reflex when you hear a song with those two words in it, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever searched desperately for Appalachian State gear and you're not even sure where that is, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you have ever randomly shouted out "O-H", no matter where you were, just to see if you get a response, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you know the exact number of days between the Bowl Game and the Spring Game, you might be a Buckeye.

- If you've ever dreamed of winning the lottery just so you could donate enough money to the University to have season tickets on the 50-yard line for the rest of your life, you might be a Buckeye.

If your mama sang "Across the Field" to you as a lullaby when you were a wee one, you might be a Buckeye!

If you name your teacup Chihuahua "Brutus" to toughen him up, you might be a Buckeye!
