On a scale of 1-10, my interest in football ranks about a 1. And my interest in college football is even lower.
Which makes me about one of ten people in Columbus Ohio who does something different every Saturday when the local college team has a game. For my first few years here, I was indifferent. I just didn’t care. But my view has changed. As I said previously:
I admit that I’m an obnixous Yankees fan. But there are times in Columbus, when listening to people talk about the local college football team that I feel uncomfortable.
I wrote that last October, and I still feel that way. There are certain things that drive me crazy, one of which is the use of the phrase “go bucks.” People use it to start and end sentences as well as everything in between. It’s used as a salutation and a departing greeting. But what it really does is drives me crazy and encourages me to commit violence. If I knew anything about college football, I’d probably have something to throw something back in their faces, but until then I’m left searching for a witty rejoinder as I stew, waiting for the madness to end.
