We’re less than two months away from the kickoff of another Ohio State football season. In this summer of discontent for the Cleveland sports fan, OSU football is about all we have to anticipate.
So, I invite you to place yourself in some good seats at the Horseshoe on a crisp and clear fall afternoon. You’ve just come from a fine tailgating experience near French Field House, and the Stadium is full of scarlet and gray-clad fans. There is a high buzz of excitement, and then all the hubbub dies down as members of the drum section of the Ohio State University Marching Band — The Best Damn Band In The Land — begin to silently, but oh so precisely, march quickly down the ramp and out onto the fabled field.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Ramp Entrance and Buckeye Battle Cry! Let’s get ready for some football!
