Chewbacca asks Jim Tressel: Obama or McCain?
This first sentence almost sounds like a joke: Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and "Chewbacca" get on an elevator. Okay, there was a Star Wars convention going on at the time last week. But that's getting in the way of a good story. "Chewbacca" and two of his buds ask Gentleman Jim, Ohio's greatest politician ever, for his autograph. Tressel signs. Then "Chewbacca" asks: "Obama or McCain? Or don't you say?" According the Morning Journal (Lorain, Ohio), Tressel keeps signing for all three and acts as though he didn't hear the question. We will take that as a "Or don't you say?" Remember, the late Tim Russert always said: "Ohio, Ohio, Ohio."
