What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
scha·den·freu·de – [shahd-n-froi-duh] – noun: satisfaction or pleasure felt at someone else’s misfortune.
It really shouldn’t surprise anybody that when you see a lot of a particular team’s gear out there, occasionally a picture will surface featuring some less-than-palatable creature sporting said gear. Welcome to the world Ohio State find itself in.
This isn’t a new development. It first came to my attention a few years ago, thanks to an investigative reporter in Cleveland named Carl Monday who exposed (so to speak) a ring of pervos whacking it to kiddie porn in the public libraries.
We all know that there are a ton of issues surrounding Ohio State’s program these days, so the last thing they really need is this:
I’d really hate to be Ohio State’s public relations guy right about now. First, there’s just the obvious stuff swirling around Columbus now with the whole Memorabilia-gate saga. Then, it comes out the players intend to wear bracelets to honor the memory of disgraced former coach Jim “Cheatypants McSwetervest” (how long before those end up in a pawn shop in the greater Columbus area?). Just as he’s reaching for the Rolaids, that picture hits the internet.
That level of stress helps to explain the tone of this response.
A rep for the university tells TMZ, “We are never surprised to see Buckeye pride displayed across the world. Buckeye hoodies and hats have traditionally been spotted across the world, and we understand that as a result, our logo will be seen in a wide range of news situations, whether positive or negative.”
Of course, that wasn’t his first response. That probably went more like “Oh, that’s just great…not like I have enough problems, now I have the most hated woman in America showing up wearing my logo.”
Then they showed him this picture.
“Oh, now that’s just fucking terrific! Why doesn’t she just perform a live sex act on that jersey with O.J., then bury her dead kid’s body in it?! I need a fucking drink…”
Casey Anthony is a reprehensible human being who got away with murder, but she is doing for Ohio State what Jonestown did for Kool-Aid, and I must approve of that.
