I wanted to make a fanpost about the Rose Bowl. We finally have one, and with it being so long since we've gone, anticipation for this is through the roof (probably an understatement). Hoping this FanPost can help any Spartans with the experience and trip.
First, if any of you are going to the Rose Bowl, this is the place to announce it. I'd love to see how many TOC'ers are going to the Rose Bowl.
Also, maybe saying plans for the trip could help. Stuff like information about the parade, tailgating tips, tips on where to lodge or park, places to eat in Pasadena, etc. Basically, anything that is relevant to making the trip better for Spartans would be nice. Any West Coast Spartans or Spartans who have made the trip before should chime in, as the rest of us would greatly appreciate it.
The other purpose of this, is to help any TOC'ers with finding Rose Bowl tickets; because we all probably badly want to go and helping Spartans make it there in any way sounds like a great cause. I imagine most of us aren't high-level donors and won't be getting anything from the university, so we'll all probably be going through secondary sources. If you need tickets, this would be a good place to ask about them. If you do have tickets, saying where you got them could be pretty helpful for any TOC'ers that want to go, too. So, ideally, say where you got the tickets. Also, in the rare event anyone has extra tickets they might be willing to sell, this might be a good place to let Spartan fans you know are die-hards and good fans about them.
So, I have tickets, I'm going with my dad. I don't know where he got them, but I can try to find out. I know nothing about LA/Pasadena so I would love any tips about that. Hopefully we can all paint Pasadena green!
