Ohio governor declares 'Scarlet Letter Saturday'

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

Ohio Governor John Kasich and Lt. Governor Mary Taylor are getting into the spirit of the decades old rivalry between the Ohio State University Buckeyes and what some people call that “school up north.”

One the eve of Saturday's football game between OSU and the Michigan Wolverines, the governor's office issued a resolution declaring the day “Scarlet Letter Saturday.”

Among other things, the resolution urges Ohioans to avoid using the 13th letter of the alphabet on that day.

For those of you who don't want to bother taking off your shoes and socks to count that high; the thirteenth letter in the alphabet is “M.”

This year’s game marks the ten year anniversary of Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Troy Smith leading the Buckeyes over Michigan by a score of 42-39 in what was dubbed the “Game of the Century.”
