Not involving the team, exactly. But, since we've already had a fair bit of discussion about the Rose Bowl, I thought I'd add something related.
As many of you know, the Select-a-Seat program was expanded from Pauley to the Rose Bowl this year. So, many season ticket holders have been invited to the Rose Bowl to do just that. For those who haven't done it, folks are given a window of time and priority number and asked to come to the Rose Bowl. Then, folks are allowed to mill around the Rose Bowl to pick amongst the then available seats that are marked with various cards (divided according to donor level).
In my book, it's just another perfectly good excuse to go to the Rose Bowl. A place, as I've said before, is one of my favorite on Earth. And, I must say, they did a pretty good job of putting this thing together. Everything ran smoothly. And it's a million times better than the old seat selection system, which I honestly never really figured out.
So, whether or not the seats are a bit tight in places, it's was time for me to get a couple extra seats for the lit'l ones in recognition of a program headed in the right direction. A fond farewell to my friends in Section 2-H.
If your interested, I've posted a few more photos after the jump.
It's sorta cool to enter the stadium via one of the tunnels
The new locker room doubles as an orientation room for this program

Those are my new seats. Yep, there; no, not those; those, right there!

The boy; well, not so much
