I have a different point of view. I'm so invested in Ohio State football (graduate, son of a professor) that I have to watch my anxiety level.
So, during the season I travel back for at least 2 games: 1 cupcake and 1 intense game. This year it's Tulsa then TTUN.
The cupcake games are like the spring game, you can just sit back, relax, chat with your loved ones and evaluate how the team is doing.
The intense games are where you're on edge, losing your voice, getting emotional and hoping to make it to the end. It's a different sort of fun, but I don't want that for 12 weeks a year.
