It ain't easy being green

with envy that is.
Tug has an uncle who is an eye surgeon in Kentucky. This uncle was awesome enough to give Tug Lasik for free a couple years back, we just had to pay for Tug's flight to Kentucky. While Tug was there, his uncle flew him, in his private plane, to Ohio to visit his Grandpa (that uncle's dad). Knowing he is a Buckeye fan, his uncle flew Tug over the Horseshoe on their way to Ashland, OH. 

Since then, his uncle has upgraded his plane and now flies/owns a jet. His little jet flew him to Ohio this past weekend to watch (along with 95,000+ other people) the scarlet/gray spring game. 


95,722 people came out for what is essentially a scrimmage.

crazy.

I guess they fly pennants for all the teams the Buckeyes play this year, because he also sent along this picture.

The flag there on the left is for our alma mater, New Mexico State University. The Buckeyes will be kicking the crap out of the Aggies on Halloween. We will be cheering for each and every Buckeye touchdown—from afar, you know, cuz we don't have our own jet.

15 people are laughing with me:

What a cool post...and uncle. Tell him hi for me.

Keri said...

What's it like to have your own jet, I wonder?

The Lobos will kick the Aggies behinds as well. Woof, Woof, Woof!

Well on to bigger and better news.

I am jealous too. We live right here in Buckeye country, but ticket prices being what they are... well... we weren't part of that 95,000+.

If you're ever in the area, we'll have to tailgate.

I keep coming over here to see what kind of "It's my party and I'll sing if I want to" post you might be doing for today so that I could say happy 21st or 22nd birthday... Branch and I can't quite recall if this is year is in the 20s or 30s... So, what the heck, have a happy one whatever it is (don't drown in your Dr. Pepper splurge!)

Sending Birthday Love!
