Great Day in Columbus, Ohio

Previously I posted that Rascal Flatts along with Hershey's would be treating tailgating fans to S'mores before the OSU game on September 11, 2010 and then singing the National Anthem during pregame activities. 

I am happy to report that it was a successful day for both Rascal Flatts and OSU Buckeye's.  As you see from this photo Rascal Flatts was able to complete their joint mission with Hershey's, then they performed beautifully and Ohio won!

"We're doing the build it, wrap it and grill it with S'mores," LeVox explained of his S'mores making strategy.

What a great day for Rascal Flatts members Joe Don Rooney a native of Oklahoma, Jay DeMarcus and Gary LeVox both from Ohio, as they becoming the first people to ever sing the National Anthem during the pregame festivities.  I am sure this day held special meaning to Gary who is an alumni of Ohio State University.


"There is nothing like Ohio State Buckeye football," said lead singer Gary LeVox "Especially for Jay and I being back home, we grew up right here and we bleed scarlet and gray."


Regulars on the Ohio State campus, attending day practices this year with the approval of their close friend, Jim Tressel. Before the game Gary LeVox was heard joking ...

"We've drawn up a few plays [for him]"

And on a more serious note he also noted ...

"Coach Tressel is one of the finest men on the planet. He's not only a great coach but his heart and who he is as a person is actually maybe more magnificent than his coaching abilities."


~ Congratulations Rascal Flatts & OSU Buckeyes well done! ~
