Awesome story. I didn't attend E2B in 2012, having already made reservations for the Nebraska Husker Huddle at the RPAC, and figuring my Nebraska gear would invite no small amount of abuse (as it did at the game, when a slightly-more-than-inebriated young lass asked me how I could live with myself, residing in the Columbus suburbs but still carrying my 'Husker affiliation).
However, I'm also the dad of a 26-week preemie who spent 75 days at Nationwide Childrens Hospital in the NICU (after 10 days at OSU, where he was born), and so I must tip my cap to 11W, one of my daily reads, for your support of a fine facility that literally saved my son's life. (He's totally fine now, for them as are interested.) Well-played, y'all.
Interestingly, I met Simon Fraser and his wife in the NICU, his twins having been born six hours after my son, and he is as high-quality a representation of Buckeye Nation as you could hope to ever meet.
(Edit: forgot to include the fact that, as a result of his kids, Simon's well on his way to becoming a doc himself: http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/sports/2011/06/12/a-healers-calling.html)
