I am a Buckeye through and through! I remember nice fall afternoons spent with my dad on the couch laying on his belly under a blanket cheering the Bucks on. I can't wait to share college football traditions with my children. Especially tailgating. Spending a crisp or sometimes a sweletering, Saturday wandering around, the excitement the camaraderie, the hope, the smell of brats and burgers and stale beer. It is glorious. They better be OSU fans or they may be disowned by their grandfather and mother. But I suppose if I have made room in my heart for one Wolverween I can make room in my heart for more. But, still, what SMART kid of mine would turn down seats in the 'SHOE on a weekend with their grandpa??? See, they will see my point. Plus, Ann Arbor is just not Columbus.
So a look back on some fond OSU memories in honor of our first game this evening against Marshall.
