OSU fans take fandom to the grave... and beyond

Posted by Adam Jacobi

There's nothing we can say to adequately prepare you for this image, posted to Ohio State's O-H-I-O picture section, other than give the family's caption for it:

"Now Dad is the permanent 'I'"

Long time fan who was always the "I-O", is forever the permanent "I". Roy Miracle was shown in an OSU turtle neck that he loved and holding the position that he loved!

Yes, this is just a bit disturbing, and no, we're not really in the business of posting pictures from open-casket funerals. That said, this is a loving family celebrating the life of the departed man the best way they knew how. That being the case, I'm guessing Roy wouldn't have wanted it any other way. So no, there won't be an ounce of judgment from us here, no condemnations, no revulsion. This isn't everyone's type of mourning, but it's yours, Miracle family, so own it proudly.

As for the rest of college football's fan bases... your move.
