    I will be in the sitting in Columbus next to my father watching our first game at the Horseshoe with Jim Tressel at the helm. About a year ago when my father had quadruple bypass surgery I wondered if I would ever get to watch a game with him again. During his recovery I vowed to get tickets one day so my Dad and I could see the Bucks in the Shoe at least one more time. I can't wait to see the look on his face when the band comes marching onto the field. I can't wait to see him smile during script Ohio. I can't wait to watch him get emotional during the dotting of the "I" like he always does. I suppose I will be disappointed if our boys don't crush Bowling Green but just being at the greatest venue in college football, watching the Buckeyes and listening to Carmen Ohio next to my Dad will be a day I will cherish forever.

    Go Bucks!

    Nutty, that's outstanding. I know you two will love being there regardless of the outcome, especially given his health issues, but crushing BGSU would be a nice bonus. I actually expect them to bring a pretty serious game. Like all our other opponents (it feels like), they've got some serious talent at QB and would love to try and sling the ball on us all day.

    Anyway, nice to read something positive and upbeat that also has nothing to do with Clarett. Thanks for sharing.

    Can't wait to get up there at some point down the road and catch another game myself.

    I didn't mean to get all sentimental, for that I apologize. I just was so excited to get tickets and I posted right after. I got to thinking about what Ohio State football means to me and my father and then I got pissed thinking about all the negative crap going on right now. Maybe I was just trying to remind myself of all the good things about OSU since there hasn't been a whole lot of that to read lately.

    Nutty, here's hoping you and your Dad have a great day and get to enjoy a great Bucks win. I'll be envious while I'm watching on tv. How about drink a beer or two for all of us who are not so lucky. :beer:
     
  9. Are you sure you should be taking someone with heart problems to a Jim Tressel coached game? I would think the doctor would have told your dad he could never watch the Buckeyes again, at least as long as Tressel is coach. :biggrin:

    On a more serious note, I hope both of you have a great time. Bowling Green is a very good team and will not be a pushover. And Harris is a top notch QB. You are in for a good game so enjoy.

    Some of my best memories of Ohio State football are going to the games with my Dad. He has not been to a game since Tressel became coach either. He hasn't even been to Ohio Stadium since the renovations.

    At what time would my father and I have to get to Columbus in order to get a parking spot somewhere near the Shoe? We are sitting in C-deck and I'd rather not have him walking all that far to the stadium if at all possible.(He'd be pissed if he knew I was asking)

    Nutty, I loved your post.
    My dad was with me for my first game in 1947. His brother worked at 13A and brought me to Columbus to watch the Buckeyes for many years. I worked in 20A from 1954 until 1966.

    My dad never really understood but he did get me started.

    Good post.

    Actually, I'm probably older than your dad.
    I made it to row 43 C deck.
    Wish I could have been sitting on the other side next to your dad.

    Clt, you'd be welcome to sit next to my father and I anytime :wink:

    We had a wonderful time. I caught him getting a little emotional when the band marched out and during script Ohio. What a beautiful day for a college football game and the Bucks once again kept in interesting :sick1: As far as atmosphere, pageantry and tradition goes no other sport even comes close to college football IMO. If there is a better place than the Horseshoe to enjoy everything that is good about college football I would sure like to see it. I am proud to be a Buckeye...

    Bucknutty,

    Glad to hear you and your father enjoyed your game together. My father was a big Cleveland Indians fan and shortly before he passed away I presented him with 4 tickets to a Cleveland home game for Fathers Day (box seats right behind the dugout). I can't begin to tell you how much that game meant to him and the bond that we experienced that day. Hold on to your memories of that first game, you will fondly recall them the rest of your life. :)
