Taking Dad To The Big Game
Organized by: Lucas Scribner
My dad and I have a shared passion for OU football. When I was little we lived by campus and would try to make most home games every year. We moved out of state when I got older and with everyone's busy schedule we were only able to make it to 1 game a year. Almost 4 years ago doctors found a spot on my dads brain. After his second surgery he never fully recovered and was forced to retire. My parents were financially and emotionally drained. My dad isn't proud like he used to be, he can't work and still struggles walking. It's been 5 years since we've been to a game, and this weekend I plan on taking him to Ohio State vs. Oklahoma. We're planning on trying to find some tickets for cheap, but after checking the prices online I realized they're gonna be way out of my budget. I want to be able to promise my dad a ticket and spend the afternoon not worrying about anything except the final score.
