FOOTBALL IS BACK!

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a massive College Football fan. My obsession is probably unhealthy, but we all are probably a part of some type of fandom; be it sports, movies, books, TV shows, musicians etc. I’m so into my Ohio State Buckeyes that I rearrange several parts of my life so that I never miss a thing. Case in point: I redo my workout schedule so that I don’t have anything set for Saturdays. Yes, I’m that serious.

Well, college football came back into my life today and I couldn’t be happier! Couple that with the fact that I will be going to the 2012 Ohio State season opener Saturday and I can barely contain my excitement. (I don’t expect to get any sleep tomorrow night) I will sit and watch any college football game that comes on TV, no matter the team. There’s no other sport where I do that. March Madness doesn’t count. That’s just 2 weeks. I mean, as I write this entry, I’m watching BYU and Washington State. I care not for either of those teams!

And although I’m obsessed with the College game, the same can’t be said for pro ball. I follow exciting players and all former Buckeyes, but it’s not the same to me. Every year, I’m tempted by Fantasy Football and the betting scene, but haven’t been able to take that next step. I’ve seen how my friends/family are, when it comes to Fantasy Football, and I don’t need another obsession like that to distract me from the one I already have!

And I probably would give betting a go (the legal way), but there’s so much to learn! It’s been recommended I take a look at http://www.nflbetting.org, but I’ma scurred. It’s a lot to absorb and I’m not much of a gambler. We’ll see, though!

But for now: ZOMG, IT’S COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON! GO BUCKS!

Making Another Trip to the ‘Shoe

Spending another Saturday at the \'Shoe

Spending another Saturday at the 'Shoe

Ok, I seriously think I’m getting spoiled. Last week I went to my first Ohio State football game and had a blast. That was probably in part to the dope seats that I got, just 8 rows from the field.

I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to go this week. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I already got a taste of that closeness to the action and was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to get a seat that close again. I just thought I got really, really, really lucky last week.

Ohio State is using TicketMaster.com this year for some of their ticketing. I’m under the impression that they didn’t use it last year which led fans to camp out at the box office the night before games. If I had to do all that to get a seat, my ass would be watching the Buckeyes from my living room couch!

But because I’m always on the internet, it doesn’t take but a second for me to open up TM.com, and see what kind of seats are available. I’ve been doing that on and off for the past few days. I was in section 26AA (lined up with the 10 yd line) in Row 8 last week (Click here for my view from the stands), but up until today, I wasn’t able to pull up any AA deck seats. I told myself that if I found one in AA, that’d be the only way I’d be at the game tomorrow. I’ve always been a ticket snob and football events are no different than concerts in my eyes. I want to be as close as I can to the action!

Then, around 4:30 PM, it happened. I went to Ticketmaster and pulled up a seat in section 22AA! This is my view this week. These seats are just about at midfield, and only 4 rows from the field. I somehow managed to better my spot from last week! The football gods are loving me this year!

So from noon to 3:30ish, I will be hanging out, once more, with 105,000+ of my closest friends and cheering on the Buckeyes. Ah, life is good!

Now if only I could easily score tickets to the Browns/Colts game at the end of November…
