The following poem is inspired by, and to the tune of, “I Wanna Go Back to Ohio State!“
I was born near the good ‘ole Ohio State
in old Columbus town.
It’s been sixty years, and I’ve not stepped
inside The Shoe, but oh I’ve kept
that stadium on my bucket list –
I surely can’t resist!
It’s one of just two
of things I must do
Your band is unsurpassed! (O-H!)
Your football team, unmatched! (I-O!)
This weekend I will see my Buckeyes “live!”
And I’ll make sure there’s not one nanosecond missed!
And when I’m home I’ll put you
right back on my bucket list!
You know you’ll go back on my bucket list!

This weekend, I look forward to scratching off the first of only two items on my “bucket list” … Go to Ohio Stadium (AKA The Shoe) to experience THE Ohio State University Buckeyes football team and marching band (AKA TBDBITL!)!
The only thing that would make it better is if Dad was with us. Love and miss you terribly, Dad. High five GO BUCKS!
