Item #5 for Winter Photograph Scavenger Hunt: Something that is over 100 years old
The 101st Rose Bowl Football Game
My son, Henry, attends the University of Oregon, and he is a huge fan of their football team, the Ducks. This year, college football started a four team playoff system, and the Ducks were selected as one of the four teams to compete in a semifinal game. It was set for the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, not far from where I grew up.
As soon as I heard the news, I arranged to get tickets for us to go. I put them under the tree, and he was over-the-moon excited!
Before the game, we tailgated with some of Henry's fraternity brothers, their families and friends. And then entered the stadium (where we found we had excellent, field level seats).
The Ducks played great!
And ended up winning the game!
At the end of the night, I had one happy Duck
It was truly a magical day spent with my son. One which we will both always remember. A priceless memory and a fantastic way to start 2015.
