Just thought I'd throw this one out there...For me it's a tie between the '91 Indiana 2OT basketball game, and the 2004 CCHA hockey championship game against Michigan. I have been very lucky in my life that my Dad has been a season ticket holder for football and basketball since his years at OSU in the mid 1960's so I've been lucky enough to have been at alot of games, big and otherwise. 21 years later I can still hear in my head how loud St. John Arena was that day, the atmosphere in that building will never be matched, and it makes me sick to my stomach that tearing it down will happen sooner than later.
The 2004 CCHA Championship game is up there because not only is it the only time in my life that the Bucks have won the thing, but for anyone who has been to Michigan Stadium for a football win knows what its like to be up there and get a victory. The Buckeyes were playing their 3rd game in 3 days and for the first 2 perioids dominated the game. The third period was a different story as you could literally see them run out of gas and UM made a serious charge. An empty net goal sealed the deal and small OSU contingent watched the Bucks skate the Mason Cup and raise the Ohio State banner that hung in Joe Louis Arena in Detroit for the entire year. Then as the team and some fans made way back to the hotel bar, Rick James (who was playing a show in Detroit the same weekend) shows up and joins the celebration, ending with a toast of "Ohio State! and Im Rick James bitch!" as this was right after the famous Chapelle Show sketch. Click on the link below and in the bottom row of pictures there is the shot of the Superfreak himself celebrating with the team. http://www.scottolmsteadphotography.com/Ohio-State-Buckeyes/Ohio-State-Hockey/2003-2004-Ohio-State-Hockey/13146237_GwGQV9#!i=1435825948&k=chR3jms&lb=1&s=A
Those are my 2 non football moments, what are yours?
