|3 years 26 weeks ago||My only time in Columbus||
My first time at the Shoe was in 2000, when Drew Henson ran the naked bootleg left to seal the victory.
I stopped in Marion, Ohio, before the game to switch cars with my Uncle who lives there. My Ohio relatives were adamant about not driving into Columbus with Michigan tags. They also suggested I not wear any Michigan gear to the game, as, "some of the fans would get upset."
Nonetheless, we faced the typical heckling walking to the stadium, when we sat down, and when we stood up to cheer.
After Henson sealed the win, we sat and watched the finals seconds tick off and cheered. That's when Buckeye fan became Buckeye fan. My cousin (who was eight at the time) and I were pelted with trash, cups, food, and various other objects. We ran back to my Uncle's car and as we ran, someone threw a "D" battery and hit me under my left eye, fracturing my left orbital socket, giving me a concussion, which led to double vision for three weeks.
