So there I was in New Orleans, I just finished watching Penn State beat The Ohio State University on TV. I am still wearing my festive Buckeye beads. V and I walk into a karaoke bar where a hefty girl dressed like 80’s Madonna is squeaking out a sad version of an Evanescence song. I mosey to the bar to collect some tasty drinks hoping to soften the blow. A younger guy slides up behind me and notices my scarlet and gray beads. He asks if I know the score. I tell him sheepishly, final score 13 to 6 Penn. He laughs. Yes, he actually laughed and then pointed at my beads. Yes, I am an Ohio State fan my friend born and raised.

Then he continues, proudly showcasing his gold and navy shirt, and announces that he is a Michigan fan. Oh My! Did you just say Michigan? Now it is my turn to laugh. Holy Toledo! We stomped your ass in the Big House! Oh yes, my alma mater The University of Toledo beat Michigan at their home field! 13-10 Toledo! Go Rockets!

You are from Toledo, he asks. Oh yes, born and raised my friend. To which he sternly states, “Get the fuck outta my way, I need a drink now”.

My only regret? I should have fudged just a tiny bit and proudly stated that I have also studied a few semesters at Appalachian State.

    This is my favorite story. I can’t wait to share it with Lynn if I ever get back to work.
