Eat, drink, and be merry...

Raising Buckeye kids in D.C. Oldest well aware of Dolodale legend and bolstered by two other Buckeyes on the squad. He can’t wait to get to a game.

A few local notes: The stadium is in D.C. (unlike the comically awful venue for the other “pro” franchise) and is almost impossibly easy to get to and from and in and out of. It was more than 3/4 full on day one. The team gear is rapidly selling out. The neighborhood is booming and the XFL season will bring crowds during what would be a dead zone between United and Nationals seasons. 

It might not last, but it’s fun as hell at the moment.

Folks, the Clemson D is baffling LSU‘s offense and the LSU D can’t hang with Clemson’s offense. It’s only a matter of time.

My folks and I split the costs to go to the Rose Bowl last year. My son not only got to experience the high/low/WTF moments a more meaningful Buckeye game can provide, but also the almost surreal beauty and vividness of the setting. (It was my first trip to the Rose Bowl too and I had I always dismissed the banter on being at the Grandaddy; some free advice: Don't)
