LeBron James warms up with Buckeyes before OSU game

  LeBron James tossed the pigskin around a bit before Saturday's matchup between Ohio State and Michigan.

It's no secret that the state of Ohio today is keyed in on the Buckeyes battle with Big Ten foe Michigan. And that interest extends beyond the gridiron to some high-profile athletes, including Akron's own LeBron James.

James was a noteworthy presence at a number of Cleveland Indians games during the 2016 World Series and also helped bring Cleveland an NBA Championship in June. So why not show up for Ohio State against Michigan?

As noted by Nick Birdsong of the Sporting News:

In Ohio, It's not a marquee sporting event unless LeBron James is there.

James brought a number of teammates with him as well to the ballgame to take in what some believe to be the "Game of the Year." A lot of football is left to play, but here's hoping this ballgame is as entertaining as Game 7 of the NBA Finals. Too soon? Sorry y'all. Enjoy the football.
