Pretty buckeye shots, Claire.

And I'm with you on the kookiness of supporting that team! It's like a mental disorder or something.

Happy Anniversary to your parents!

Congrats to the parents!

Lovely buckeyes. I'm no football fan, but I am a fan of the buckeye. I always thought they were lucky as well and would fill my pockets with them as a young girl.

Thanks ladies! I ended up being around campus when the game ended - I was happy there was no rioting. Though I saw a ton of people playing beer pong on their front porches. When/where I went to school, we were less overt with our drinking games.

Thanks for the wishes to my parents, as well. :)

Great pictures!

When I was little my dad told me that buckeyes are edible on one side and poisonous on the other... but only squirrels can tell which side is which. ;)
