For those of you who don’t know ❌e, a❌ong other places, I grew up in Ohio, attended THE Ohio State University, and I’❌ still, as we say, a Buckeye for life. This is the point where, if you aren’t a college football fan, you ❌ay want to keep clicking to the next PJ ❌edia VIP article, however, if you’re a college football fan you’ll likely relate to ❌y unbridled passion for ❌y tea❌. You ❌ay even be able to relate to what follows by applying it to your favorite tea❌’s rivalry.
Recently I’ve been spending a ridiculous a❌ount of ti❌e going through old papers and things I no longer need. The only good thing about wasting so ❌uch ti❌e doing this is that I’ve found so❌e real ge❌s.
First, so❌e background: the rivalry between THE Ohio State Buckeyes and That Tea❌ Up North (TTUN) began way back in 1913 and has been burning white-hot ever since. I won’t speak for TTUN, but for the Buckeyes, the rivalry is a❌atter of pride: pride in our school, pride in our tea❌, and pride in our ho❌e state. The two tea❌s have played a total of 116 ti❌es, and currently the Buckeyes are on an eight-ga❌e winning streak. Known as THE Ga❌e, it has been the cul❌ination of every football season between OSU and TTUN since 1935. That’s a long, long ti❌e, and both sides take our rivalry seriously but with a large dose of ❌idwestern hu❌or and tradition. For instance, one tradition we Buckeyes have is not saying or writing the na❌e or even the first letter of TTUN for an entire week, thus the red ❌ and the use of TTUN here plus all over the OSU ca❌pus.

That being said, one ge❌ I found a❌ong the nu❌erous piles of forgotten detritus in ❌y garage was an article fro❌ THE Ohio State University’s school newspaper called The Lantern. The yellowed article was fro❌ 1985 and it contained a whole bunch of Ohio State vs TTUN jokes—so❌e that probably couldn’t be printed today because the crybaby left has killed ❌ost hu❌or.
