Football is Life

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?

  1. Looks like a great time. My Vikings won, the Texans won, & while I love weeks when the Bears & Packers lose they played each other so someone had to win...I'm glad it was the Packers despite being a MN girl. They're my closet team...just don't tell anyone from MN...especially my mom ha.

  4. SO fun!! I actually have never tailgated until a couple of weeks ago and I LOVED IT! Why did I wait so long to go to one?! So glad y'all were able to enjoy the game TOGETHER! :) Y'all are just the cutest!

  5. So glad you had a great time! We were there as well. It was soooo hot that afternoon. Very glad it was an evening game. It would have been 10x hotter in the stadium if the game would have been at noon.

  6. I love so much how much you love football - but I hate the Buckeyes like A LOT. Please just stick to the NFL and the Gophers. :)

  8. You've NEVER TAILGATED?! I know you work the NFL games,but not even in college? I'm dying over this. Girl! You gotta go! :)

  9. OSU all the way. But I will say I don't think it's okay that they pounded UC into the ground like that. I never like those kind of games.

  10. We tailgated for the first time this weekend, too! Looks like you guys had fun :) and may I say that you are looking so small these days! That hard work is paying off :)

  11. Yep, I'm as jealous as I thought I'd be after looking at your pictures. Haha! Those are some amazing seats and I'm glad you repped the Buckeyes with the necklace. The band is the coolest ever. Seriously, I think the OSU band actually qualifies as a non-nerdy type of band. Hopefully, since the Pats have a quicker turnaround and the Bengals have had a nice, long break, it'll pay off for us!

  12. Ugh, you two are so cute! Also, because I started working in college athletics when I was a freshman in college, I've almost never been tailgating! I'm always working the game, so I've never gotten to! My friends remind me every game how much I'm missing out!

  13. Oh my gosh HOW have you never tailgated before?! Come out to Seattle and I'll show you the tailgate of a lifetime, girl! :-)

  14. I'm so glad you finally tailgated!!! And with Jared!! You're welcomed to come to a Tech game for a tailgate whenever you'd like - they are the best! :)

  16. I'm so glad you got to tailgate (and get free food!) Looks like a great day. And that picture of you and Jared in your seats is just adorable. :)

  17. So I picked up the Bears defense for my fantasy team because my regular DEF is on bye week. And I wanted to support my team! Epic fail. They got me -1. The worse part is that Jordan's a PACKERS fan. We are a divided house.

  18. Glad you guys had a good time at the game! It was pretty sticky Saturday evening. The bye week was glorious! Looking forward to seeing my Browns play this weekend though :)
