Extra week to prepare (and noise) makes the first half resemble Camp Randall. Unfortunately for the White Outs, OSU's second half from last week shows up right on schedule. In the end, Penn State is not Wisconsin and it's never as bleak as OSU's first half in Madison and it's not much of a game in the second. OSU 35 : 17 PSU

Best possible game day occurrence: OSU kickoff return TD; OSU blocked punt TD; OSU pick six; Rushmen sack for safety; or lion "roaring" thing broken beyond repair?

Went in 2003 to see the good guys come back and score the winning TD in the final 2 minutes.

Pre-game lot scene was solid with good-natured ribbing.

By gametime, the smell of manure being spread at nearby farms (best guess) was so pungent that it burned the eyes and throat. Not a metaphor -- literal shit show.

Now-wife and I were the only OSU fans in nosebleed section, which made for increasing shittiness (there's a theme here) from locals as the game tightened in the second half. We're big kids -- it was over the top. We bolted immediately after Jenkins caught what would be the game-winning TD (with XP).

It cannot be overstated how awful the exit traffic is.

Trust me. I'm on it. 

And we're trying to make Seattle/Vancouver work one of these days. Thanks for the insights.

We owed close friends a visit after they moved from Napa last year. 

Our plans are sightseeing and eating/boozing. A proper adult (without the kids) visit.
