i may have mentioned on here that my wife is from columbus and went to ohio state. we've made a couple of trips there in the last 2 years, but haven't been to a football game yet. i was a little bummed that our trip last fall was an away weekend (we went to bww to watch the ohio st-wisconsin game, at least i was able to watch mizzou destroy nebraska on a little tv in the corner with no sound). i was kinda whiny about it, but no big deal. so for my birthday this year, her parents send me a card saying they entered the alumni ticket lottery for us to go to a game this fall. i thought, 'ok, cool', but figured it would be against youngstown st or something. we found out this week they got tickets for the usc game. u-s-frickin-c versus ohio state. needless to say i am excited about that matchup! i'm sure it will be a crazy atmosphere for that game.
