What happens to Jim Harbaugh when he rolls into a suburban Columbus Kroger reportedly looking to get a coffee? According to former Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry, who won four pairs of gold pants (awarded to Ohio State players when they beat Michigan), his mom was at Kroger and took the picture of Jimbo waving to all his fans.
Turns out that Joshua’s mom had a pair of her gold pants with her. Perry, won his gold pants between 2012-15, tweeted this afternoon about the encounter:
So more to the story- my mom said she took the pic, showed him the gold pants and he got pissed and left. One of his assistants said “maybe you shouldn’t have done that” and my mom said “he’s lucky I didn’t have all four!”
It’s a rivalry, folks. Doesn’t matter if you think it’s died out thanks to Michigan being inept in the series. Both sides live to cause each other pain and suffering. If that means showing Jim the gold pants then that’s what it means. Never get comfortable.
