It wasn’t real for Bryce Haynes until someone handed him a black T-shirt and a black baseball cap with CHAMPS written on the front in bold, gold block letters. Quickly, he got his hands on two copies of The Columbus Dispatch with headlines of NO. 1 and HISTORIC VICTORY! on the front pages. He put the hat on backwards, threw the shirt over his shoulder, folded the newspapers in his hand and looked around at the disarray of cameras and confetti and media and security.
