They say love is blind. It cares not for color or creed or origin and it certainly cares not for your college football rooting interests.
The choice of OSU's midfield was apropos, given that Michigan vs. Ohio State has defined this relationship from the very beginning:
They bet on the 2010 OSU-Michigan game: The loser would have to don a T-shirt of the other school, take a photograph and use it as his or her Facebook profile picture. Wakefield lost the wager, but eventually won something more significant: a first date with Zellers, on Dec, 11, 2010.
It's also a savvy move by Johnny Wakefield, who's going to need all ammo he can collect in order to ensure their future children grow up to be Michigan fans.
