A Story Shared

A great story from Bill Down:
I was in Columbus over the weekend so my son could attend OSU's kicking camp. We had some time to kill on Sunday so we went to the stadium to find my brick just south of the stadium. After finding it, I was walking towards the stadium, just casually looking at the other bricks. I was shocked to find your brick there too, almost directly between my brick and the stadium. What a coincidence! Then during the camp on Monday, when my wife and I were coming back after lunch, she came within about 10 feet of Urban Meyer. He was leaving the stadium and getting in his Mercedes and smiled at Barb. She should have asked him to give our son a scholarship for the class of 2018. I missed the chance to meet Urban as I had gone back to the car to get the camp schedule. Thanks for sharing Bill!

Contact Steve at 248 628-4656 or at bux72@yahoo.com Provide your name, telephone number, email address & the home game that you are interested in buying or selling.
