I'll never forget the day I met Mr. Lachey.  I was all of about 7 or 8 in '84.  We were picking my dad up at the Dayton International Airport. He comes walking out of the tunnel (you could be back there then) next to a giant of a man. Mr. Lachey reached down and shook my hand as well as my Mom's and big brother's. He was very nice to us and saw the joy in our faces as we met an OHIO STATE FOOTBALL PLAYER!!! I noticed his bag, watch, and clothing were all Ohio State gear too (hard not to notice when you're 3 feet from the ground). The best part was that he just let us ask questions and took time to be awesome with us.  Thank you Mr. Lachey.

My first Buckeye game was a "Scarlet and Gray game" as my Mom put it.  My parents used it to gauge how much interest we had and if we could make it through a full game (we don't leave early).  Fast-forward 30+ years and I am a father of three young ladies. I began taking my oldest two years ago.  "If she gets too bored and we need to leave I think we will have gotten our $5 worth."  I'll be doing the same next year with her and her younger sister and then with all three of them the following (it's a long walk for a 5 year old).  Games are expensive yes and we need to save up for them, but I won't do that for the kids unless they show an interest and stay through the whole game.  They are getting better at home at least as they make it through most of the games.  My daughter loves TBDBITL and the Cheer Squad and then the football team. I'm really good with that as it is something we can all do together for a long time. Good God I love being a Buckeye!!!
