i was born and raised in c-bus. for my hs senior year i moved to boca raton, fl and then went to the univ of south fl in tampa, but what i looked forward to the most every year was going back to c-bus for christmas. meeting up with old friends and going to the original bw3 (which my favorite uncle took me to when i was 10), nothing like it. i live in south carolina now, not the friendliest place for a buckeye fan, but its all worthwhile when i meet another buckeye, and it happens on a regular basis. i have to take alot of crap from sc and clemson fans ( i live 15 minutes from clemson, even go to b-ball or f-ball games if i get a free ticket, and yes i always wear osu gear) they are just jealous bastards. the funny thing is everytime im on clemson campus ill get a OH or go bucks. anyway i had to write something cause i read every post and got chills from everyones stories. i think living away makes you appreciate the buckeyes that much more and feel that much more a part of the osu family whether you attended the school or not. you know whats in your heart! thanx to everyone who posted. i enjoyed every word. go bucks!
