Recap and Pics from Bruin Bash tailgate at Stanford

Bumped. Always love reading posts like this. GO BRUINS. -N

Since everyone has already chimed in about our performance against Stanford, I thought I'd give my two cents about the awesome Bruin Bash tailgate that took place right before the game.  I also brought my camera to take pictures of both the Bash and the game, but ended up taking more pics of the Bash.  You'll see those shots below.  Anyway, I started the day off by getting to the Stanford campus a little after 10:30am.  I've never been to Stanford before even though I was born and raised in the Bay, so it took me a minute to gather my bearings.  But, after spotting waves of powder blue heading into campus in front of me, I just followed the crowd.

For those who haven't been to Stanford before, it's a pretty sweet campus.  Awesome buildings, plenty of trees, and just a good overall vibe to the place.  I made my way to the Frost Amphitheater and immediately saw signs for the Bash.  Walked in and was immediately greeted by fellow Bruin fans and alums.  I was both amazed and proud by the sea of blue that filled the area. 

I snapped this shot from the stage area looking out into the crowd, but it doesn't capture the massive group behind me on stage getting food and drink:

More after the jump

It was a pretty darn good setup by the Bay Area Bruins and the Alumni Association.  There was enough food and drink for everyone.  Only drawback was the long line for booze, but I really didn't mind.

Here is a pic of some of the snacks:

Once we got food and drinks in our belly, the group was treated to a pep talk from no other than Chancellor Block himself (who showed up with his wife):

The part I waited for finally came up, when the crowd was treated to a healthy dose of our fabulous band and cheerleaders.  I'll let the pics speak for themselves:

Suffice it to say, it felt good to be a Bruin at that moment.  Watching the band and cheerleaders do their thing, then taking a look around at all the different generations of Bruin fans and alums made me feel damn proud to wear my colors that day.  Again, awesome job to the Bay Area Bruins and Alumni Association for hosting such a great event.  It was a pain helping with clean-up afterward, but it was well worth it.

Oh, and I couldn't leave without getting one treat for myself:

That's one happy Bruin up there!
