Well, another weekend has come and gone.
Crazy how quickly it happens, isn’t it?
This weekend was a fun one. On Saturday morning, we woke up early and headed to Columbus for the Ohio State/Indiana game!
The game was at 1pm, but we wanted to get there earlier to take in all of the game-day festivities …
… which mostly consisted of getting squished in between large football fans and listening to Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise” blaring from large speakers.
Right up my alley, huh?
But what was more up my alley?
The food, of course.
Brandon’s “breakfast of champions” included an (overpriced) bratwurst at 10am.
While I decided to partake in something a little sweeter …
… a cream-puff the size of my head.
Anyone watch “Man vs. Food?” Schmidt’s Restaurant and Sausage Haus was featured on the show a while back.
Their claim to fame?
Gigantic cream puffs.
You would think super-sizing a pastry like this would negatively affect the taste. But oh no. This beauty tastes ah-mazing. Light and airy with the perfect ratio of cream to pastry. Heaven.
And P.S. This isn’t the first time I’ve enjoyed one of these …
This was taken back in June the day after a friend’s wedding. What can I say … I like my sweets.
Anyways, after enjoying our snacks ….
forcing asking Brandon to pose for a few pictures, it was time to head to the stadium!
We got there just in time to see the “dotting of the I,” which evidently is a big thing at Ohio State.
It was a perfect day for football … a little chilly but with plenty of sunshine!
It was also a neat day to be at the stadium, because they recognized the armed forces during the game.
The game itself was a little nerve-wracking, as the Buckeyes weren’t playing their best game.
But no worries … I kept Brandon occupied during the “hairy” moments by forcing him to partake in more picture taking.
Fortunately, Ohio State pulled it out for a win.
Final score, OSU 34 – Indiana 20.
After the game, we met up with some of Brandon’s old college buddies.
We had a really good time catching up with them. We also got a kick out of watching college kids act … well, like you would expect college kids to act on game day!
(Let’s just say that some of them probably woke up feeling pretty silly on Sunday morning … )
Eventually we headed out and back home. But we both definitely enjoyed our day at “The Horseshoe!”
Next up? I think Brandon needs to experience the Swamp …
… don’t you?
Question for you …
What did you do this weekend?
Have a favorite football team? Which team?
What’s your favorite game-day food??
Mine isn’t normally a giant cream puff, but it definitely worked for me on Saturday! Normally, I like more traditional foods, like pizza or buffalo chicken dip!!
