Ohio State and the Symbolic Use of Color

To cap off our three-day week, we got word that Wednesday we're celebrating Ohio State Day with OSU spirit wear and blue jeans.  I have to confess that I've never watched an entire football game, despite serving in my high school's band and watching my daughter march in hers.  From my perspective, football games center around halftime and valiantly attempting to keep warm.  Yet, I'll blithely celebrate Ohio State Spirit Day tomorrow along with everyone else because we get to wear blue jeans! Beside a little pin,  there's not a shred of Ohio State regalia in my closet.    Happily, as an art teacher, I relate well to the symbolic use of color; so, scarlet and grey are on my wardrobe radar tomorrow.   I hope OSU has an amazing half-time show when they play Michigan this Saturday.

  1. I'm a little surprised that you have an OSU pin. Perhaps next year you could just carry Wesley around for the day to show your spirit: Your grandson has at least a dozen pieces of OSU clothing. *grin*
