Sherrod Brown discovers its way easier to campaign than bet on the Browns, er, Buckeyes
If you're still mourning last night's Buckeyes fiasco, take comfort in the fact that your elected leaders feel your pain.
This afternoon, Senator Sherrod Brown is scheduled to atone for Jim Tressel being badly out-coached by, um, attempting 55 push-ups in the office of Florida Senator Bill Nelson. Last week, the two politicos agreed that whoever lost the BCS championship would do as many push-ups as points scored in the game. (It if was C-Notes, we would have prayed to the Blessed Virgin for the under.)
According to Brown's Capitol office, the bet is still on. The senator was apparently practicing this morning.
"I think the push-ups will go down at some point," says the guy who answers but won't give his name, apparently because he's a CIA operative. "Whether he gets to 55 or not, I'm not sure." — Lisa Rab
