On 10/25/14 at 5pm I'll be at a wedding that I can't get out of... my old roomate of 2 years is getting married in downstate Illinois. (And I had a ticket that I had to turn down)
Sweet Baby Jesus please schedule this game for noon. If it is set for 3:30pm then I'm screwed and I'll be watching on my phone from the back row.
So, on this note... let's hear some stories of missing a big game due to unavoidable reasons. (And no, "my wife made me paint the house" is not an excuse. Being a wuss and not having your priorities straight is not a legit excuse to miss a any game).
Or, let's hear stories of watching the big game in the face of adversity.... like my friend who watched the entire 2006 OSU game in the hospital room while his wife was in labor with their first kid.
