    How about Wall Street Election Day? 

    It's official. Nothing is sacred. Everything is for sale. The Ohio State University has joined Michigan in selling the name of its renown football game to SBC Communications for slightly more than $1 million. It isn't good enough to just be Ohio State-Michigan or The Game. Now it will be the SBC Michigan-Ohio State Classic. ``That's unbelieveable,'' former OSU fullback Harold ``Champ'' Henson told Barnet D. Wolf of The Columbus Dispatch. ``There's some traditions that shouldn't be fooled with.'' Sorry, Champ. Not true. Next thing on the block will be the dotting of the ``i'' in Script Ohio or maybe even that ostentatious The in front of Ohio State University. OSU athletic director Andy Geiger said the $530,000 OSU will provide ``incremental revenue at a time when it's hard to find.'' Still, he expected some negative reaction. So they announced this sellout during the last week of the presidential campaign in the most important swing state of the election? Nice try, Andy, but you can't hide from Ohioblog's revulsion.
