LEBO: Hoyrish Edition
I assume that both the people reading this blog are familiar with the term "LEBO." It's an acronym coined by Jeff in the comments section of the old version of theblog.net, and it stands for "Land of Eternal Buckeye Optimism." I like to use the word in reference to the wildly optimistic ("Seriously, man. THIS IS THE YEAR," every single year) sect of the OSU fanbase, especially when we haven't got much reason to be so jolly. This kind of attitude has gotten me labeled, on more than one occasion, as the "most pessimistic Buckeye" many of my acquaintancecs know. I prefer to think of myself as a realist ("No, Scott, we are NOT going to go undefeated each and every year," or the 2004 classic "I have emotionally prepared myself for our upcoming loss at Iowa"), but that's neither here nor there. The point is, the residents of LEBO are certainly not alone, in a national sense. I'm sure we all understood this in a strictly logical way ("Other fanbases must have people like this too, right?"), but now we have proof. BEHOLD, the game-by-game predictions of No-trah Dame uberblog The Blue-Gray Sky. I don't think I'm overstating it when I say that they are positively Scooter-esque.
