Well, not really- it’s still sunny and eighty degrees here in California. But our Ohio (and TSUN and Buffalo) readers certainly could use a break from all of the snow and ice, and might enjoy a trip to some warmer climes. So, perhaps we can celebrate Ohio State’s break with a soundtrack that will encourage and enlighten your Winter Wednesday.
Let’s be honest… you’ve already started on your excuses for next week. Thursday and Friday should absolutely be a national holiday from work, since most of us don’t get anything accomplished anyway. Ah, the beautiful Madness!
Sure, the Buckeyes have a game or four to win before Sunday’s brackets are released and the Big Dance begins… but it’s never too early to get your hilarious entry name locked and loaded for this year’s challenge!
While bragging rights are always a fantastic incentive, we’ve got a great prize package from our great sponsors, including your chance to pen a guest post here at the mothership. Heck, Ken had so much fun that he decided to stick around.
Here are the details that you need for the 2014 edition of the showdown- as a reminder, the Yahoo! Investigative team hasn’t visited Columbus since we switched over to their Fantasty services. You’re welcome, Buckeye Nation.

Good luck, and Go Bucks!
If they can celebrate The Answer in Philly, we can celebrate Spring with this great musical tribute that includes his most notorious catchphrase…
Today’s my dad’s birthday. So, this is relevant (and may explain a few things):
This week we lost a musical legend and great Ohioan… so, this morning’s soundtrack should help you get through the middle of your workweek.
Updated post: In case you’d forgotten, today is the birthday of Wayne Woodrow Hayes. He would have been 101 years old.
Born in Clifton Ohio, Woody followed a stint in the US Navy by coaching at Denison (his alma mater) and Miami University before transforming Ohio State football as we currently know it.
Woody led the Buckeyes to 5 national titles and 13 Big Ten titles; his teams’ matchups against former assistant Bo Schembechler’s Wolverines during the Ten Year War also defined The Game for generations of midwestern sports fans. In fact, Woody’s decision to go for two because three was out of the question may have even been the impetus for current UM coach Brady Hoke’s inability to remember the full name of his school’s rival.

For the second straight week we go all “in loco parentis” for SBP… here’s the soundtrack to match, from back in the day. Or as I call it, “The Day”.
The news broke last week that tonight would be a very special game for Ohio State… as if the hoops version of The Game needed any extra attention.
With the Wolverines, Spartans, and Badgers all falling over the past week, tonight’s matchup against That Team Up North has extra importance- A win by the Buckeyes would certainly go a long way at getting them back into the heat of the B1G Conference title race.
So, what better opportunity for the Scarlet and Gray to break out the hoops version of the “Pro Combat” uniforms- special threads that are part throwback (in style) and part future (fabric and fit).
And, if you’re like many fans, you’re going to want to add a set to your collection. Our friends at The Buckeye Room have got you connected… but there’s a limited number, so you’d better move fast.
While you’re there, you can also add to your “Beat Blue” gear with a full sized “chrome” helmet, similar to the one that Carlos Hyde* imbedded in Wolverine defenders for the past two seasons.
They’re obviously great partners with us, and you can join the Buckeye Room’s VIP list by subscribing to their email list for daily deals… I got a new hat for my birthday recently.
Will you be able to be as dreamy as Aaron Craft? Unpossible… but the Buckeye Room will keep you geared up for your pick up games, tailgating adventures, and trips to the ‘Shoe.
Check ‘em out, and Go Bucks!!
