Subtitle: ...and other dumb stuff I do Before classes started, my wife informed me that Louis CK was touring and that, as luck would have it, he was coming to Detroit on Friday, Oct. 12th. At the time, this seemed perfect... my last final should be sometime earlier that day, I thought. We'd be able to make it up to Detroit in plenty of time for a 7:30 PM show. So we bought tickets (Louis CK subverted Ticketmaster and sold tickets to his show directly on his website... awesome business savvy on his part).
The fall at Ohio State is a special time. School starts in August (at least nowadays it does) and football starts in early September (unless it, too, happens to start in August). Football season is great for Ohio State (see my other posts for more information on that topic), but not just because I love Ohio State football. Football season at Ohio State means a lot of guest speakers come to campus. Maybe I'm attributing too much causation for the abundance of speakers in the fall to football season, but it's why I'd come if I were in their shoes.
