OSU Fan Goes to Great Lengths ... Err, LEGOS
OK, this is totally random and so perfect for Random Thought Thursday! (Although there wasn't much thinking involved. Not for me anyway.)
My uncle, an Ohio native, sent me some great pictures tonight. Apparently there is a man from Michigan, yes Michigan, who decided back in 2002 to embark on an amazing journey - to build a LEGO replica, to scale, of the Ohio State Buckeyes football stadium. It took him two years, approximately 2000 hours and countless numbers of LEGOS to finish the model of "The Horseshoe" as the stadium is so loving referred to as.
The replica is 36 1/2'" x 46 1/2" and stands 10" tall. It weighs approximately 38 pounds and is built to a 1:275 scale. There was no name in the email regarding who the devoted fan was and I searched the internet to no avail. But with the Big Game coming up on Saturday I had to post the photos because this is just, well, f*cking great! (LEGOS were one of my favorite toys as a kid and I wish I had thought of doing something cool like this - although I wouldn't have had the patience to spend two years on it - instead of building Papa Smurf's laboratory 100 times over.)
Enjoy the photos and GO BUCKS!!
