OSU vs. PSU VIP

So my parents are the greatest people alive. They gave Leah and I their tickets to the OSU vs. PSU game on saturday. Those tickets came with field passes. Their friend has a pretty decent inside connection. So an hour before kick off, Leah and I strolled down to the field to watch warm-ups and pre-game revelry. We saw LeBron James with his entourage. Leah was stalking him and mad they didn't meet and become "friends." She has a slight crush. We saw Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, the PSU coach with fire engine red hair, Archie Griffin, football players, band members, recruits and fellow dumbstruck fans. Leah high fived Brutus. She has a slight crush. We cheered as the drum major came sprinting in and led the best damn band in the land down the field. It always blows me away how crazy 105k people go for a marching band. We watched Coach Tress run out with the team in his super fresh white sneaks. Then we watched a killer Big Ten battle, complete with a half time performance of the 1812 Overture with fireworks and Script Ohio. We ate hot dogs and shared a $4 coke. Leah kept me up to date on LeBron's whereabouts on the field. I kept her up to date on various elements of football strateegery. The fourth quarter rolled around and the good guys lost. Leah, however, said she felt "happy" for JoePa. She has a slight crush.

Parker was looking at these pics with me and said, "Mommy there's Brad!" And I said, "and Leah!" And she said, "and Brad."

She has a slight crush.

Slight crush?

I have a HUGE freaking crush on Bron Bron.
That's what he likes me to call him.

On behalf of my hubby, who happens to be a Penn State grad, you totally suck for scoring such awesome tickets! And HAHA! WE ARE! PENN STATE!

I would have paid good money to be standing a few feet away as OSU got beat. To be able to see the tears stream down the faces of the Ohio State fans. To be able to taste their anguish...mmmmmm...pure Heaven.

You got to see Kirk Herbstreit??? Um, did he mention me? Did you ask him about me? What was he wearing?

(kind of a huge crush)
