I am in Dallas tonight, site of the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, so I’ve seen quite a few fans in both the airport and my hotel.
More Ohio State than Oregon, I must admit.
A few of the Ohio State fans have been proudly sporting their buckeye necklaces (left).
Do you have yours?
I recognized the nut — and probably know the candy even better — but didn’t realize that wearing them was an Ohio State ‘thing.’
A quick Google search confirmed it, and explained the necklace’s origin. Turns out they didn’t get their start at Ohio State —
Presidential candidate and Ohio native William Henry Harrison used decorative buckeyes in his campaign way back in 1840.
Political nuts. How perfect.
