    This was fantastic! GO BUCKEYES! Yes, if you can play who cares what your orientation is, if you can play.

    wow, that is amazing!!! it was the same with my aussie rules football team here in baltimore. as long as i tried, as long as i put my best effort into it, orientation was a non issue. simple as that. it's how it should be.

    I find it funny to see this video and to actually know some of the guys and trainers of the OSU hockey team.....they really are serious about it, but they really are some of the crudest guys I've ever heard too!.....you will need to have a real thick skin ...because they have a cult following of "puck girls" that are like hockey groupies that constantly get used by the team and the conversations are graphic...icon_lol.gif

    I just signed up to this site today and love the surprise of this post. The video was shown at Pride Night, the first in NCAA div1 history. This video was shown after Gordon Gee's video reaffirming OSU's commitment to inclusion and equality. Plans are in the works for this seasons Pride Night.
