A Leap of Craziness
There is an annual tradition at The Ohio State University for students to jump into the famed Mirror Lake during Michigan “That Team Up North Week.” This leap is usually quite cold because it takes place in mid-late November. However, Mother Nature decided to test the sheer will and bravery of the Buckeye faithful this Winter season with extra frigid winds and plenty of fresh snow to play with in ways that can only be concocted in college.
All of us can now say in unison, “I miss college!”
How many fans would make the bone-chilling leap, despite new campus restrictions requiring participants to wear a wristband…?
Was there ever a doubt? This is The Mirror Lake Leap during “That Team Up North Week.” Just as the Buckeyes will take the field on a blisteringly cold Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor, the fans have once again clearly shown their dedication and solidarity with the men in scarlet and gray.
Borderline freezing weather? What borderline freezing weather?
The question of the week: What heats up a frozen Buckeye?
Kicking That Team Up North’s ___ (clearing my throat) football team.
