...I thought were about the whiniest bunch of people I had ever been around. I'm not really sure how anybody else's gameday expierence was on Saturday, but our group ran into a few nasty crowds;one in particular. We watched a fellow Buckeye (probably 44yrs old??) CLOCK one of Sparty's finest as we were making our way into the Stadium...
Sparty, we'll call him, was your typical wasted college kid destined to get his point across that Ohio State Sucked, and how the Buckeyes were dominated last year. All the while his
skanky, drunk girlfriend makes silly faces, as if she's having her boyfriends back; I think she even did the one-- where you stick your tounge out as far as you can while giving yourself moose antlers.. Anyway, one by one sparty went past us (we were 17 strong just in our travel group) telling us things he wanted to do to our mothers and calling us homophobic slurs; he was really out of line. Just as one of our friends, an Army member, was about to snap, a random gentleman dressed in Scarlet and Grey had had enough.. As I said before, he was roughly mid 40's and I hadn't heard him say a word the entire time Sparty was yapping off. Didn't know the guy, but I'll never forget him! Like a bat out of HELL HADES, this Buckeye version of Chuck Norris-- We'll call him Buckeye Chuck. Like a bat out of HADES, Buckeye Chuck went at Sparty with a looping Right hook and CRACKED him on the chin! I couldn't believe my eyes! This amazing, curageous man was willing to risk missing the game to shut this disrespectful dbag up! Turns out one of the guys in our group starts pointing and shouting at the top of his lungs how much of an idiot Sparty and his... whatever she was--was, over and over-- "THIS GUY IS ACTING LIKE AN IDIOT, BE PROUD MICHIGAN!!" "THIS GUY IS AN IDIOT"... shortly after that, security showed up... took our buddy's advice and realized they were acting like drunken idiots, put them in cuffs and escorted them away from the stadium.. not a Buckeye was lost for their efforts!
Did anybody else have a similar, or completely different experience?
