Fun You Can Have When Your Friends Leave Their Collegiate Gear Behind

Anyone can write on their friends with a magic marker or take pictures of them when they’re passed out drunk, but it takes a truly inventive mind (and your own personal website) to come up with a way to truly embarrass a friend.  As a result, I proudly present “Fun You Can Have When Your Friends Leave Their Collegiate Gear Behind.”  In the words of webmaster Eddie Griffin “That’s devious, man.”

As many regular sportschump readers know, one of my best friends, Croshere, is a proud alumnus of THE Ohio State University.  And as many of you sports fans know, Buckeyes are among the most passionate fans around.  Can I get an O H!!!

Unfortunately for Croshere, he also has a bad habit of leaving his Ohio State gear behind when he comes to visit.  This time around, I decided to have a little fun at his fleece’s expense.  I hope you enjoy the pictorial.

I would like to thank Visual Communications, Inc. for their time, photographs and directorial wisdom.  I’d also like to thank Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel, fondly referred to as ‘Jimmy T’ in the Croshere household, for swinging by the SportsChump studios.

Coach Tressel and I, seen here, kick back on my sofa to watch the Ohio State-Michigan Big Ten tournament game.  As you can see, he’s very excited about March Madness.

Coach Tressel and I discuss some of the finer work Ohio State athletes have done since turning pro.

At half-time of the basketball game, Jimmy T and I watch highlights of our favorite movie, “Remember The Titans.”  Sometimes, Coach Tressel will use it in the locker room for motivational purposes.  Who’s your daddy, Gary?

As is tradition with most sporting events, Jimmy T and I like to enjoy a refreshing Jack Daniels cocktail.

Whoops!  Looks like Jimmy had one too many.


After waking from a peaceful slumber, Coach likes to surf University of Michigan websites to check on the competition.


Coach Tressel loses his head as he and I celebrate the greatness that is Evan Turner.

  1. Man, this is freakin’ awesome. Nice work! Nice photos from Visual Communications, Inc.!! Sup Mom! Man, I’ve been dying here for a few. Priceless… Glad you removed the photo of Tressel kissing Urban Meyer’s bum.

  2. Arubaman…

    I figured those pics could be found anywhere on the internet so I tried to come up with something a touch different.

    Stay tuned for the Croshere family’s comments and don’t forget to hit Carlos n Charlies while you’re there.

    Always go back to the original unit.

  3. That’s an entirely different post, Al. You know I tackle the tough sports issues of the day.

    As witnessed by this post.

    Be right over to check out your latest.

  4. Pops…

    Well since it’s been either freezing cold or pouring rain in Florida these days, I figured I might as well put the towel to good use before I am able to tan.

    I’ve just now finished watching the bout between Clottey and Pacquiao. And apparently one of the judges had Clottey winning a round. I think he must’ve have left his seeing eye dog at home or something. Pacquiao threw close to 800 plus punches over the 12 rounds and landed close over 50 % of them . And Clottey’s punch stats were abysmal. No wonder the sport is in the crapper .

  6. Al… One thing could save boxing. Pacquiao-Mayweather. But that’s not going to happen.

    I hereby propose that you become boxing commissioner. First order of business. Make that fight mandatory.

  7. Chris

    Huggins cries every time he gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. And that’s something that I for one don’t particularly like . Given the guys proclivity for drinking while impaired. Need I say anymore on the matter ?

    The Mavericks aspire to be world beaters in the NBA ? Much like the French did during WWII . And we all know how that ended up don’t we ? They kick the Knicks’ a_s all up & down the Gardens but on their homecourt they get blown out by 34 points by the same damn team ? Geno Auriemma’s U Conn Huskies (women) would give them a run for their money and maybe even a scare or two. That’s how bad the Mavs are ! They’re doin’ it with smoking mirrors .

    Hey Your Mavs Aren’t All They’re Cracked Up To Be

    Alan Parkins

  8. If that’s the case, Al, then there’s a lot of athletes a-cryin’ these days. And don’t forget about your boy, Tony LaRussa.

    Al, it’s the NBA. Any team can beat another on any given night. I didn’t catch the game and I agree with you, there’s no reason the Knicks should be shelacking the Mavs like they did.

    I think they’ll be fine in early June. It’s late June that they’ll be bounced.

  9. Ok, I gave up blogging until after this quarter but I HAD to respond to this! You have outdone yourself here sir. Jimmy T would be…er.. was so proud to hang with the Rev. Looks like you two hit it off pretty good. Even got him to loosen up a bit. Tell your boy to keep track of his Buckeye gear before JT ends up in a compromising position with Lou Holtz…kind of.

    Very funny. Now how bout them Buckeyes!?

  10. Oh my…. ha ha. Evan Turner from near halfcourt… guess he’ll do that to ya.

    Pete and Marty – I don’t know, when was the last time you talked to them? Let alone some of the others…

  11. Chris

    No team should allow another a 32 point turnaround and get shellacked the way that the Mavs did. Like I said the team’s psyche is poor and they will fold like a cheap suit ! They won’t get by either the Nuggets or Lakers . And their bench isn’t as strong as some might believe.

    I see that the Jets have signed LT ? And TO is still out there treading water . I hear he’s now prepared have a sandwich board hanging around his neck saying ‘will work for food’ ?

    Alan Parkins

  12. Pete… I love the Buckeyes chances this year. Tough bracket but there’s is as good a shot as any to come out of it.

    I’m about to put up a bracket contest so make sure you represent Buckeye Nation. It should be up later today.

    Sorry to hear you stopped writing. Jimmy T would probably not approve. Besides, Urban Meyer was looking forward to your rebuttal.

  13. KP…. as you can see, it didn’t take long for Petey Nice to come out of hiding.

    To be perfectly honest, I think he was just jealous I got to spend so much time with his man.

    We didn’t even get to go sweater vest shopping.

  14. Al… you still didn’t answer my question.

    Are the Mavs better than San Anton.

    And I think you’re right about LT and Ryan. How long until we see LT start pouting because Ryan was a little rough on him.

  15. Chris

    Record simply suggest that they are better. But what there’s no way in hell that the Spurs would’ve beaten like a drum like the Mavs were . Does that answer your question ? Without Parker as the swingman in the postseason , the Spurs will suffer.

    50,000 people can’t be wrong for turning up at Texas Stadium for the Pacquiao Clottey fight can they ? The undercard was extremely bad and the main event itself was just as bad . And people still shelled out between $39-95 to $44-95 to watch it all. And Bob Arum described it all as a resounding success . I guess he would, considering he made out like a thief in the night walking away with so much swag !

    LT’s psyche is just as soft as Tiger’s and the Mavs combined. God knows what’ll happen if Sanchez gets in his face. He’ll probably end up crying. The thing I’ve got to ask is what the hell is going on inside of the Jets’ front office ? They let Thomas Jones go and sign LT for more money than they actually offered Jones ? What’s up with that ?

    Alan Parkins

  17. I guess I’ll buy that answer, Al.

    I know it’s only March but I am BEYOND ready for some NBA playoffs.

    And I’m still waiting for a reason to pay attention to boxing these days.

    Since Congress is so involved in sports these days, why the hell don’t they get involved in putting that damn Pacquiao-Mayweather fight together?
