Even on my free, non-working weekend I can't seem to stay away from football. You really can't blame me though. Football IS the best sport out there- no arguments will be tolerated. I mentioned Friday that a client had given me tickets to the Ohio State game over the weekend. Jared and I had an absolute blast. We obviously don't get to attend games together very often (i.e... never) so even though part of me didn't feel like driving up to Columbus for the day, I knew it would be fun once we got there- and it definitely was.
It was hard to pick who to cheer for. Ohio State played U of Cincinnati, but you know me, I'm an NFL girl so I didn't care that much about who won. I wanted a good game, but sadly UC got destroyed out there. I had my Buckeyes necklace on anyway though, so I guess I picked the right team! We were able to stop by a friend's tailgate
for some free food to say hi for a little bit before the game started which was fun. I have honestly never tailgated in my life. Yes, you read that correctly! I'm always working, so it felt so weird/different to be on that side of things.
Our seats for the game were awesome, as usual. They're located right by where the band runs out and I was too excited about them coming onto the field to get any pictures of them, but my former band-nerd-self was loving it. Plus, the cops all stand right behind our section because the rowdy student fans are right above us-- we felt nice and safe from any craziness the whole game!
It turned out to be a super hot evening for September football, so we were pretty gross by the time we left the game. We'd been working up a sweat cheering our hearts out and watching the Buckeyes win 50-28!!! However, no weekend adventure is complete without a jumping picture and a selfie so we were sure to grab those on our way out.
Ohio State, you were a great host- but now it's back to my Bengals and the NFL, my first love ;) It was nice to have the Bye week and not have to stress over our score, but now I'm already anxious for us to play Sunday night. Patriots - here we come!!
Who were you all rooting for this weekend?
