Off the field

Off the field

Parents live for the March-on. Its better than Script OHIO. The Brigade of Midshipmen, 4000 strong, in nearly-straight rank and file. Then they swarm off the field and into the stands, and the game begins. Not the battle... the game. The names of the real battles line the stadium, reminders of wars past and suggestions of others to come.
