Pie a Buckeye This Saturday, Courtesy of the Sports Business Club

Have you ever seen someone so obnoxious that you thought they deserved to be hit in the face? Smeal’s Sports Business Club is presenting an opportunity to quench that desire at its “Pie the Buckeye” fundraiser, this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Allen Street Gates.

The club will have a representative dressed up as Ohio State’s Brutus Buckeye, and for $1, any passersby can throw a pie in the face of the mascot.

Funds from the event will go to the Sports Business Club. The club was formed to create a network for students interested in the business side of sports. Per the club’s website, its purpose is to “foster the growth of students’ knowledge in the sports industry by learning from professionals in the field, and provide students with opportunities for internships and/or future careers in sports and similar fields.” The club also provides an outlet for interested members to contribute to THON and play intramural sports.

After posting your #OhioStateHateWeek jokes on Twitter, this fundraiser is a good way to get amped up for the Whiteout game that night. If you find yourself downtown, let Brutus know what you think of his goofy Buckeye nut head.
