Well I thought I'd take this chance to share with you guys my first OSU Michigan game in the Big House. This year was my second game and of course my blood was rushing nand I was very excited to be attending. I left my house with my friend (an OSU fan unfortuantely) around 8 am and we began our journey to Ann Arbor. Traffic was fine getting up there and I fell asleep for a majority of the trip. Anyways we rolled into Ann Arbor on campus around 11:30. Close call right? The course was packed with the tail gate as expected and Pioneer was filled to the brim so we decided to park on somebody's driveway who was charging for spaces. We quickly moved out torwards the Big House and I had to bare witness to groups of buckeye faithful rolling in with those damn flags waving on their cars and magnets on their back bumpers and trunks. There was a ton of people making their way through the gates and our destination was section 18.
I sat in row 26 and he was in 39 which I didn't realize until I reached my seat that the section was four or five sections away from the OSU supporters. Great I thought I have to put up with these clowns for the game. I was shocked to my stance on how many Buckeye fans attended that day. The enitre top section that was about eight sections away was all scarlet and grey. I shook my head in digust and looked to the person next me and said "what can you do right?" He nodded and the pregame started and ended then it was kickoff time. Osu of course chose to recieve (typical). I sung when "The Victors" played and cheered "Let's Go Blue" when the band started playing it. I loved my view of the field though and I got a perfect view of Pryor's interception and Smith's touchdown. The rest of game play wise was tough to watch. Hearing the mimics when Tate threw those pics lit my fire and soon I started to kind of mimic back. When OSU fans started chanting O-H-I-O I interupted by chanting O-R-E-G-O-N. I can tell you that a lot of people got a kick out of it and yelling "How are those Browns doing?" also caught some glares. I couldn't help it because I like to even the playing field when it comes to insults. At the end of the game I walked up to my friend's section and stayed for "The Victors" then left. I will admit that I really didn't see any of the causes of the fan ejections. I saw someone in my section leave escorted by and usher and officer. He looked drunk by the way he was walking and he was of course a Buckeye. Despite the loss I had a great time. It's always great going to Michigan Stadium and talking with new people about the game and team. It's a treat to go to the Big House anytime you have a chance to go and even if it ends in a loss you can still appreciate the fact your there. I hope to go to more games next year and I'm hoping that I also will have the grades to transfer to the campus and go to the game every Saturday next fall! Untill next year fellow Wolverines I look forward to yet another year of Michigan football! Here's to 2010!
