We headed out of Oxford on Friday afternoon and got back after the game Saturday night, so we were only gone for about 30 hours. The unfortunate part of that situation was that I spent more hours in my uniform (14) than I did sleeping (4 1/2). The game was fun though, and my parents were there (they took this picture), so it was a worthwhile road trip.
I was a little bit in awe of the excitement surrounding the OSU marching band and football team, because it was pretty crazy to see literally THOUSANDS of people cheering for the BAND. At home, OSU fans are the norm. Here, we have our fair share, but we've got people from all over who could care less about the Buckeyes. I was trying to explain the Buckeye football phenomenon to Christina before we headed to Columbus, but I couldn't put in to words precisely what kind of an obsession it is for some people.
Regardless, I went against everything I was brought up with and cheered for my own team, who sadly got their butts kicked. I was disappointed, but I'm not going to lie: I totally want a buckeye necklace.
