My nephew, George Murray, exploded in joy when Ohio State scored the winning touchdown on a 72 yard pass with three minutes left in the game against the University of California. George graduated from Ohio State in 2011 and is now in his second year of law school at Ohio State.
By John Murray
I went to church Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio. The pews held 105,000 rabid fans of Ohio State and it was an afternoon of family and football wrapped in God and country. It was an unparalleled spectacle almost impossible for a Connecticut boy to fathom. UConn football? Not even close. UConn basketball? Nope. The Giants, Patriots, Jets, Yankees and Red Sox can put on a good show, but not like football in Ohio with 105,000 of your best friends.
(Editor’s Note - 15-year-old Charlie Murray spent three weeks of his summer vacation working at his uncle’s business, The Waterbury Observer, and had the opportunity to deliver newspapers, blog, and interview Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary about zombies, ghosts and first kisses. This is the result of that interview)
Charlie: How are you, Mr. Mayor?
Mayor O’Leary: I’m doing well, Charlie, thank you and how are you?
