My dad went to pretty much every OSU home game with his dad growing up. He and I have been to one game in Columbus in about 2007, and are super pumped that they're playing two games in our area this year (we're in northern va).
32 years ago today my dad reported to the Army - on Friday we'll celebrate Command Sergeant Major Spray's retirement from the United States Army Band Pershing's Own. I can't think of a better retirement gift than two tickets to a game for a great career of service to our country!
EDIT: he visits this site every once in a while - here's hoping he doesn't stumble across this article as it would be an awesome surprise!
