The Game

I felt it as I woke up on Saturday. The energy. It was game day. The Game was played in Ann Arbor and as I headed north from a family gathering in Ohio I saw a solitary figure standing over the highway waving on Ohio State fans up to the Big House.  I wasn't sure I wanted to stop to shoot a feature, but I followed John Tully's rule that if you do a double take, you have to stop. I found the nearest exit and spent a few minutes talking to Darrell Ash. Even though he cheers for the grey and scarlet and I cheer for the maize and blue we share a passion for the game and his excitement was infectious. I wish that there was a different outcome at the end, but I couldn't have asked for a better game.
