OSU vs Penn State game

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

I had a busy day yesterday as work was hosting a tailgating party for the Ohio State vs Penn State game. I was also able to attend the game afterwards due to a friend getting me tickets. We had excellent seats near the “touchline” (as I called it) but quite a way up in the C section. I was a bit nervous about taking photos as although the OSU website states that cameras are allowed (as long as they are not video or with detachable lenses), the signs above all the entrances say no camera’s allowed – OSU really need to come up with nonconflicting guidelines about what you can or cannot take into the game.
I was able to get some photos at the beginning of the game and of the marching band, but as it started to chuck it down with rain I put the camera away and enjoyed the game. The first half was fairly boring with little action, but the second half, especially at the end was great with three touchdown generating interceptions, with the touchdowns right in front of us.
I’m afraid I wasn’t impressed with the band at half time, they really should stick to what they know best, marching and playing – not singing Rolling Stones songs (which I don’t like to start with!) but the rocking guitar formation at the end was really cool.
I didn’t enjoy the drive home though – it took 40 minutes to get from the place I had left the car to the nearby main road – a distance of 1.1 miles. During this fascinating 40 minutes I came to the conclusion that crickets believe in reincarnation and come back as traffic cops, as the noise that traffic cops make as they insanely blow their whistle is very similar and annoying to the sound that crickets make – just a lot louder.

Information Improvisation

Consulting an investment center should be the first step before thinking of a huge investment anywhere. This habit is of particular importance in corporate investment. The insurance companies take considerable notice of any irate behavior in this context. This is why paperwork of any investment property should be updated in every manner possible.
