A burden weighs heavy

OSU v. Texas hype is a global phenomenon. My Texas alum friends in the UK will be watching the OSU game on tape delay Sunday in London. As a one-time member of the non-Texan hangers-on crowd (Americans abroad stick together no matter what state they’re from), I entered their secret society on one condition. In order to maintain the illusion of live football, all must take the vow of silence, which imposes draconian restrictions on communications with anyone who may know the final score. All gloating is on hold until about 1pm Eastern Time Sunday, when UK Texas Exes will learn the final result of their humbling at the hands of the Buckeyes.
