Ohio State vs. UAB - The Buckeyes are 4-0

Anyone that reads this knows that I love to Quilt and the Ohio State Buckeyes!!!  As an Alumni I'm able to attempt to get a pair of tickets to the Ohio Stadium(The Shoe) each year. 
We traveled to Radnor, Ohio last night to stay with my girlfriend Claire.  Her oldest daughter Morgan was generous enough to give up her bed for Jim and I.
We arrived at campus at about 9 a.m. and were fortunate to park close to the walk over bridge that at the south end of the stadium. 
We decided to attend The Skull session at St. John arena.  The Best Damn Band in The Land(TBDBITL) was celebrating 44 years of their alumni club.  There were over 600 alumni band members and at least one of them was 94 years old!!!
It was great listening to both the active band and the alumni band perform.
After the skull session we headed over to The Shoe to grab a hotdog and some drinks.
This year Jim and I had pretty good seats.  6A Row 23 closed end of the stadium.  We ending up sitting next to some friend we hadn't seen in awhile and my friend Amy was one row down.
The game got off to a slow start, but they did manage to cause a fumble when I was down going to the restroom!!
I returned in time for the half time show.
It sure was impressive seeing close to 800 people marching on the field.
SCRIPT Ohio is always fantastic, but seeing 4 of them done at the same time was truly awesome.
The guys did manage to win the game, Jim and I got sunburnt and we drove home in the rain!!  What an awesome day!!

Good seats! I still cry every time I see alumni band day. What a dedicated group of musicians.

Sounds like a fun day! I watched the first half on TV and it was a rough start! I am from Ohio and the Buckeyes will always be in my heart.

It's always nice to meet other Buckeye fans and quilt lovers through my blog!! I'm not sure who dotted the I. It was a young man probably a sernior.
