Advice: How To Have A Great Away Game Experience
Tomorrow marks Ohio State’s first away game of the season, as they will face Cal at Berkeley. Every student knows the drill during home games, but what is there to do when the team’s not at the Shoe? Following is a list of the best options for a great away game experience.
Go home for the weekend and watch the game with your dad, giving him a short reprieve from his undiagnosed symptoms of empty-nest syndrome depression.
Find an off-campus viewing party while your dad watches the game alone and continues to struggle with living away from a child he nurtured and guided for two decades.
Take a break from the excitement during halftime to continue to ignore texts from your dad as he attempts to reconnect with you by sharing his opinion that Ryan Shazier is nationally under appreciated.
For a more relaxing experience, watch the game with a few close friends while your dad attempts to fill your game day absence with the presence of your stepmom Janet, who is showing little to no interest in a sport she has never really loved, can never love.
Stop by a tailgate, maybe your dad’s tailgate with his college buddies, as he desperately tries to somehow relate to you by attempting to return to his long gone youth.
Live tweet the game from one of Ohio State’s famous bars, but be sure to use twitter’s block feature to prevent your dad from his last ditch effort to maintain a connection to you despite his lack of social media understanding and intense disdain for the emotional distance it puts between people.
You should call your dad.
