O-H...

I was on the highway last Friday and when stopped at a red light, I heard some wild honking and screaming coming from the Benz behind me. When I looked back, there were three 20-somethings outside of their car signaling and screaming O-H (to which any Ohio State fan knows to respond I-O...spelling the letters with your arms). I responded appropriately. Buckeye fans are fanatics and can apparently be found all over the world. Even in Texas.

I thought my Ohio friends would appreciate knowing I'm in good company out here. Thanks again for the Ohio State licence plate frame, Abbey. Without it, these crazy people would have had no idea I'd respond to to their screams.

Your so funny! Sounds like all is well in the new place. Katie i sure miss all of our old times. Friends around here aren't like our friends back home and i sure am missing you all lately! We all just truly cared about each other and had so much fun together doing whatever and I just miss that feeling. Thanks for being so cool!

Hey Katie,
Thanks for your comment. I can certainly understand the struggles of weight! But I, like you, do it the old fashioned way. Eating right and exercising.
Good luck to you on your 15, and we'll root each other on!!!!

That is a funny story! I am always suprised by how many Idaho plates I recognize now in CA. I don't know if I saw them before or I just take notice now because I once lived there.

Very cute story. Glad you responded appropriately!

That is awesome!! See, you are seeing the power of the Buckeye even in Texas!! I hear there are more OSU fans in the Southwest than around here!! CRazy, huh?! I love that you responded so quickly-it would've taken me a minute or two to figure out what they were screaming about!! Funny!!
Love them' Buckeyes!!
