Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta

It's Friday, It's Friday, It's Friday!!!!

Ok so I know I sound a little bit more happy than normal for a Friday but there is a really good reason for my super excitement.

Today leaves only ONE more day until the Kickoff of the 2008 Buckeye's Football Season. I can not wait for Game Day to arrive. I remember the first Buckeye Game that I was not in Columbus for. I had moved to Dayton to go to college and it just wasn't the same. There is this amazing buzz in the air here in Columbus on Game Days. If you are out running some errands before the game starts and you pass someone else in there OSU gear you or they yell the O-H, I-O cheer. If you are outside of Columbus you wont feel that excitement and you probably wont hear a Go Bucks, or O-H, I-O. So I'm glad I will be here in C-bus spending it with some good friends and hopefully watching a good game.

First up you have to listen to some Mandatory Mood Music. My favorite part starts around the 3 minute mark so make sure you stay till then or skip straight to it.



In case you don't know this is The Ohio State Univeristy Marching Band performing one of the oldest and best traditions od Script Ohio. A senior suzaphone player is lead by the Drum Majior out of line to dot the "i". It's a huge honor for those choosen and a once in a lifetime experience.

Now that the mood is set here is my picture of the week.



In honor of the first game I picked this picture of Emma and Ian after the first game last year. Remember how we go shopping and get new shirts each year? Well last year the kids had matching jerseys and they were so cute in them. Ian actually can wear Emma's from last year which is a nice bonus.

Do you have a picture to share with us? If so head on over to that wacky Badger lover Candid Carries and join the fun, it's really easy just click the cute picture below. Oh and GO BUCKS

Hells yes! GO BUCKS!!!! I'm fired up and ready to roll for tomorrow. Heading to the store today to buy Noah some new gear—doesn't even matter that we're broke. He MUST have a Buckeye shirt. :) Oh, and Emma & Ian are looking stellar in that picture. Nothing like some mini Buckeye fans!

Hope to see you later and some comments from you on those posts. :-)OH and thanks for popping in to see me today.

Wow... I didn't know ya'll did the college football fan thing outside of the SEC! ;)

Whenever I hear "Buckeyes" I think "Buckeyed peas". Sorry.

That's great!! My daughter just started at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. She is in the band there and their first game is tomorrow too!! Got to love college football!! Fall is definitely in the air.

Jen said...

Great picture Jess. Living in Badger land up here, I get so inundated that it it good to hear Buckeye music. I take slack all season about OSU. Go Bucks!

Kelly said...

Very cool! I've never seen this from the start...the amount of people they must have in the band is astounding!
The kids look like they are all ready to go (even if you have to bribe them to sit still with food :) ) Enjoy the game tomorrow!!

Rhonda said...

That is sooooo freaking cool!!! I love how school sports is such a major thing in most states. Here in Canada, people absolutely could not care any less!! It's very sad, really!

Excuse me now, while I go watch the marching band again!
