Yesterday Ohio State played the Illinois Fighting Illini as the Big Ten season opener. Ohio State played in the pouring down rain in the first half and then in the second half, the rain cleared out. Lucky for me I was at this game sitting with my Dad wearing ponchos and freezing half to death. I absolutely love watching football so this was a great experience for me being able to watch Terelle Pryor and all the other players. At the end of the game when there was about five minutes left, my dad and I started to leave. When we were on the bottom level, we looked inside the stadium. The usher was nice enough to let us sit in the empty handicap section because everyone was leaving. We were right on the five yard line, sixth row up. I said to my dad, “These are the bests seats I have ever sat in.”
We also went to what’s called the “Skull Session.” This is in St. John’s Arena and it is where the band warms up before the game. The place is packed and the music is loud, so it is awesome. The football team came through and they had chosen a captain to speak and the coach Jim Tressell talked for a short amount of time. After they talked, the football team left and the band played some music. Jefferson High School Band was there to because the person that was dotting the “I” in ” Script Ohio”, was from Jefferson and that band played a couple of tunes too.
