Proud of my Buckeyes


One of the things I was really excided for this year was the football games. I knew that we were going to have a good team and I couldn’t wait to be apart of it. The games were so much fun and it was really neat to see everyone having a good time. I loved how I didn’t even have to know the people around me but we were able to talk like old friends knowing we had at least one thing in common. The weird thing was that I noticed a few games into season, two rows down from me there were three people that looked oddly familiar. The more I thought about it I figured out that it was people from my home town that went to another school. I just couldn’t believe that out of thousands of people in the stadium I recognize people from my town. It really is a small world when you think about it.
I was excited for the season, again, because I knew that our team was going to be good. But I didn’t relies they were going to be that good. It was really cool for me to say that I was a part of history that year. I loved every minute of it except when it came time for the national championship. Well, we all know how that turned out. It just broke my heart to see them loose like that. But I really can’t make a lot of excuses for them. They just weren’t prepared to play. It was interesting for me to see how people reacted the next day. It was defiantly a day of mourning for buckeye nation. People acted like it never happened. Everyone went about their day like usual, but without really talking to anyone. It was just kind of understood that everyone was feeling the same way so why really talk about it.
Even though it was a sad time for many people, I feel like it just made our pride stronger knowing we still support our team. That is one of the things I have noticed about Ohio State, people are so proud of everything. It doesn't even have to be in sports, it can be anything. People at OSU are just proud of what they do and I love that.

I did not have tickets to every game but i was able to go to two games with my family this year. This is the first year i had ever gone to a OSU game and it was the best experience and i look forward to next year! I think we will be just as good next year and it will be a great season! At one of the games i went to me and my mother went to the bathroom and saw one of my highschool friend who now goes to main campus in there. I, myslef couldnt imagine going to an event with so many people and seeing someone i knew.

Nice job, Amanda. Watch some spelling errors: "realize," not "relies," "a part of," not "apart of," and "lose" not "loose." 5/5
