Have a Nice *Gray*

Oh, we did.  We had a great day, full of scarlet and gray.  Four tickets arrived on our doorstep again this season, a result of last fall's chance meeting with a very kind man.  Sometimes you can just feel a person’s decency, in much the same sense that you can intuit a person’s complete lack of it, and although we don't know him well, this guy was nice when we needed nice.  More than once.  This time he hoped that we could enjoy the game as a family of four.  It was unseasonably hot today, and since Celia doesn't regulate her body temperature well, and because we thought she'd prefer an afternoon nap as opposed to the noisy stadium, she stayed with Grandma, and Grandpa used her ticket.  And the four of us had fun.  The friendly folks around us tolerated Tuck kicking their backs and stealing their Cracker Jacks.  He got to see Brutus up close and to practice his "I-O"s.  And we got to enjoy making early OSU memories with him.  It was one of the nicest days...

Jenni Baby, Andy My Boy and G'Rod,
Did you tape Tuck's ankles? The record begins...Tucker has NEVER gone to the stadium and seen the Bucks get defeated! The polls say, #1 day!

Let's see...the Bucks played...some team from Indiana? Hmmm... When you were very young, Jenni, you witnessed IU beating THE OSU! ;o)

Jen and Andy,
So glad that you, Tucker & Grandpa got to enjoy your day at the 'Shoe. Tucker looked like he was having a great time. We will be recruiting him to play for the Buckeyes in no time. Still want to meet Celia one day..when the time is right. Love her smile. When the snow flies, maybe you can come over for a little Buckeye basketball at the Schott too. Memories are made every day. All the best, bj
