OU almost wins...Journey Rocks Riverbend

This Saturday we departed for Columbus, OH at 730am to watch OSU vs. OU. Being that there were 2 OU and 1 Miami grad in the car, we didn’t really know too much about OSU’s campus, and let the random people standing on the streets with homemade signs lead us to a dilapidated junk yard where we paid $20 to park.(see pic- “Wall really brought the horsepower to this party.”) Unfortunately I had taken so many pictures last weekend (Jenn’s bachelorette party- I realize I have yet to blog about this fun event)- and then took so many pictures at our ridiculously ghetto “tailgate” that once we got in there and I took a few pictures of the band with the cursive Ohio, and then my camera sadly informed me he was out of power and that would be all the pictures I would be taking that afternoon.

Still we had really great seats from Wall’s boss (and even had cushioned seats with backs on them bolted to our bleacher seats- obvs the envy of all!)…and the most exciting part was that OU was winning at halftime! There was a very strange energy in the Buckeye stadium as the Bobcats kept up with the Buckeyes…and of course I had to rub it in by giving the only OU fans around (10 rows back) air high fives…. Obviously in the end, the Buckeyes prevailed as everyone predicted, but it was still fun to go and root on the alma mater and be a part of the excitement in Columbus during an OSU home game.

Sunday, after sleeping in late and spending some qt on the couch, we slapped on some 80s gear and prepared for the Journey Concert. A little flipcup, a little power (half) hour and we were on our way. The new singer sounded almost scarily similar to Steve and rocked out the show. As with any nostalgic band, everyone rocked out to the classics and went to the bathroom/refilled their beers during the new songs.
It was a good time had by all, but Monday morning in the office was not fun, as to be expected and next time I play any amount of flipcup or power hour on a Sunday night, I am taking Monday off…

Even though I didn't go to OSU (go Bobcats!), I still think that cursive OHIO is pretty cool. Yay for the weekend recap and pictures! :)
