Ohio State opening football game
Yesterday, Jason and I watched in dread as Beanie Wells went down in the 3rd quarter of the OSU/Youngstown State football game. As alumni I get two tickets a year and sometimes we give our tickets away, but this year we went. It was a beautiful day and I LOVE the first home game of the season because the band alumni come back to make one massive pack of marching music. And at halftime they did FOUR Script Ohio’s, which is always a highlight. We were four rows back on the upper deck of the Horseshoe and the sun gave us both a nice pink face (and a red nose for me) and the game was good. We got to see our new freshman quarterback, who is going to be awesome, and were enjoying some hot dogs and Coke when Beanie went down by the goal line and did not get up…for a long time. It was pretty tense in the stadium. He is a Heisman hopeful and we Buckeyes take our football very seriously. We are traveling to USC in a few weeks and we need Beanie. We won the game 43-0 and we all hope for Beanie’s speedy recovery. When I heard the injury was turf toe, I thought, great, he stubbed his toe and he’ll be fine. Then I was told that it could be serious. If the injury can be serious they really need to come up with a more scary name. Any ideas?
