Let me start by saying I was born in Ohio and have lived out west with my wife and 3 children for 16 years now. I used to travel back and forth every few years to visit family but, the expense was too much and so it's been 6 years since I have traveled home. I had been watching my kids cousins grow up through social media for years and it started to get to me.
I get a call out of the blue from my wife while she is at work asking me if I would like to attend the Michigan vs. Ohio state game this year or if I would like to just have a party with friends for The Game. My first thought was, are you kidding?!! I'll go to The Game! She explained she had the option for tickets in the first 10 rows of section 22 ( so not bad tickets at all), right around the 30-40 yard line. She went on to explain that if I didn't go, we could just have a party with friends back home...in Ohio!
So for the last month, my wife had been planning a surprise party for me back home and wanted to top it off with my first ever, live, in person Ohio State / Michigan game. When the situation was fully explained of course I had to decline The Game. It freed up more money and more time to spend with the family back home.I am the lone Michigan fan in my family and my circle of friends, so I wanted to share with folks who share my love for the Maize and Blue. Happy Saturday, Beat sate and Go Blue.
