Got Pokemon? Ohio State, Reds want to help you catch ‘em all

Hey sports fans, heard of Pokemon Go? If you have been on social media in the past few days, it’s hard to imagine you can say no.

But if you’ve held out this long hoping to hide in the world of sports, we’ve got bad news.

If it’s not coming to a stadium near you… it might already be there.

The Cincinnati Reds (here) already acted to capitalize on the craze, and Ohio State joined in not long after (here) with picture of a Pokemon at Ohio Stadium.

The latter appeared online via mascot Brutus Buckeye’s official Twitter account, who might be able to pass for one of those monsters out in the wild himself.

Wright State’s athletics department got in on the act, too.

And we’re sure they won’t be the last.
