Merry Christmas, everyone. As we have a diverse and multi-faith staff, we undoubtedly have just as many ways of spending this time of year as you folks do. But whether you're celebrating Christmas, Kwanzaa, or already celebrated Hanukkah (or heck, Festivus), we're beyond thrilled to have spent even a small part of your 2013 with us.
For all the frustration that plagued the last few weeks, we'll be hard pressed to forget 12 more consecutive Ohio State football wins, one more victory over Michigan, another Leaders division crown, an Elite Eight run, a Big Ten tournament title, two buzzer beating tournament wins, a miraculous come from behind victory over Notre Dame, and arguably the best recruiting class Ohio State's ever landed. And with Urban Meyer and Thad Matta at the helms of the revenue sport teams we hold so near and dear, there's plenty more where that came from.
From the bottom of our hearts to yours, thanks for being the best damn fans in the Holy Land. Next year will be even greater, but until then, let's open some gifts, rewatch that Tyvis Powell 2-point conversion interception over and over, and enjoy some downtime.
