Just Ohio Being Ohio?

It was recently brought to my attention that Ohioans had an interesting response to a poll question regarding the economy vs. their football team. This post from Fanhouse shows you the poll, in which 59% of respondents say they would rather have Ohio State beat Michigan this year than have the Dow reach 13,000.

In fairness, a lot of them probably don't know what that means. However, it got me wondering if that kind of response is really as strange as it seems. I mean, would any of you trade the economic rebound for a big win? Keep in mind, this is not a championship game, but a win over a 2-4 team that just lost to Toledo, even though it is a huge rivalry. Is there a win you would trade it for? A championship?
