Ah ha, I nearly forgot-- the last home game of the season was this past Saturday (all the photos from it are right here), and many disturbing things happened, like Mike Hart fumbling for a safety, and Michigan struggling inexplicably against Ball freakin' State, and a hilarious fight in our section.
But none of those things are the best bit.
The best bit is who was on the field, schmoozing with the band director before the game, and then up on a ladder conducting the band at halftime.
PATRICK FREAKIN' STEWART!
The Royal Shakespeare Company was in town, putting on a series of shows at the Power Center. I didn't get tickets to any of the plays (sold out like woah), but I did get to see a lecture from their design team. And then suddenly at the football game, THERE WAS PATRICK STEWART! On the field! In my stadium! Saying, "Beat Ohio State! Make it so, Number One!" to delirious cheers from the student section.
My joy was dorktastically unbounded.
