Good Evening Fellow Buckeye Fans!
My wife and I were having a discussion about my passion/obsession with Ohio State Football and to an extent Basketball. I have a routine before every football game and I have to watch the game live. I tried explaining the euphoria of cheering on the team you love "Live"...but could never make the perfect point to her. There have been other engagements (far less important) that I've put my "foot down" in order to watch the game live. I don't think it really bothers her, because she didn't put up a fight and if you know my wife, if she really cared we would be going regardless of what my opinion is :-). For instance, we were invited to go to the NW vs IU game last year with my Father In-Law and family. This scenario wouldn't allow me to watch ALL of the OSU vs. MSU game. I threw a fit but I was forced to go. I believe I eventually got caught up live towards the 4th quarter by the time we made it home. The entire experience just wasn't the same.
I know in the near future, with two young daughters, there will be engagements I won't want to put my foot down on and frankly won't have a choice. My wife keeps reminding me of this and that at some point in the next couple of years I won't have the luxury of watching the games live. I pout, because I know it's true... My question to you fellow Buckeye Fans, am I insane that I have to watch the games live? Is anyone else the same way? If I'm crazy just tell me and it will help me come to terms that I'm being an irrational Buckeye Fan. Thanks so much!
