Ohio State Opener

So today was Ohio State's first game of the 2006 season. I missed the first 26 minutes of the game, thanks to Steve, our usually super reliable TiVo. I triple checked yesterday to make sure I was recording the game. I don't know what happened. I almost critically hurt Steve when I found out what happened. I'm sure my in-laws, who were visiting during the game, thought I was nuts. I am very particular about my Ohio State football. We opted to visit rather than watch the game. Actually, I forbade the playing of the game, so I could analyze each play freshly with surprise alone later. I know. I am psycho. It is all I have to enjoy right now in my uber pregnant state.

The first half looked good. The second, not so much. I think they were cruising a bit, which disappointed me. I have no problems seeing 8 or nine touchdowns put on the board. I have no shame. The defense had their hands full with Wolfe, the Huskies star running back. It will be interesting to see if they buckle down during the Texas game.

Speaking of the Texas game, if my amniotic fluid level is still high on Thursday, Dan and I will probably be enjoying that game from a birthing suite at Fairfield Mercy Hospital. Let's hope The Deuce will arrive before the game rather than during. I need to focus!

Anyways, here are some pics from their visit. Aveline was sporting her cheerleading outfit. Grandpa loved helping her do jumps and bounces. After they left, she kept bouncing up and down saying "Jump! Jump!" Of course she can't do it on her own yet, but she wants to!

Never name your TiVo or other electronic devices... That is a "Curse" and you will suffer for it...

Haaaaaang On Sloopy, Sloopy Hang On! O-H-I-O! That's the song, right?? (What a little Buckeye she is - and wow, 1 more week to go until you're having a baby? How exciting!)
