18.Oct.2012 National Attention Feels Weird
Does anyone else feel strange seeing OSU get so much attention? SI, WSJ, ESPN…I mean, don't get me wrong, it is cool and way better than the alternative, but at the same time it feels weird. Best analogy I can think of is an ugly nerd who gets plastic surgery or a growth spurt and all the sudden he's prom king. That nerd would probably feel awesome on one hand, but also like a poseur on the other.
Also feels weird because we're one loss away from nobody caring.
I'm sure everyone will argue with me and say they don't feel that way because that's what you cantankerous jerks do. 😉 But that's what I feel like discussing today. How I feel awesome and dread all at once. It's like nothing I've experienced following sports.
Oh, there is a new site, created by a member who posts here, that is trying to rebrand OSU and sell some gear. Check out beavsarmy.com if you're in the market for a shirt. I personally think the look is too edgy and modern for our fan base, but the guy clearly has ambition and a vision so best wishes to him. He said the site won't accept payment for a few days, so if you're interested bookmark it and check back next week.
