USC's Heritage Hall

Heritage Hall is basically the Athletic Hall of Fame for the University of Southern California. It houses many of the trophies and memorabilia of the USC sports teams. I thought it would be cool to share because college football is beginning this weekend:




 

Rose Bowl trophy
2013 NCAA Women's Golf Championship Trophy
1984 NCAA Women's Basketball Trophy
Cheryl Miller's 1984 Honda-Broderick Cup
John Naber's 1977 Sullivan Award
The Crosstown Cup which is given to the winner of the rivalry in sports between USC and UCLA
The big sport on campus is football and USC has a rich in history in it:

Statue of legendary football coach John McKay
Some of the USC Heisman Trophies
O.J. Simpson's Heisman Trophy
Matt Leinart's Heisman-The last USC winner in 2004
Statue of the Wild Bunch which honors the 1969 USC defensive line
Heritage Hall is quite impressive. It is something that I have always wanted to see and happy that I got to.

Music Monday: Songs That Inspire Me

I am not really great at telling about stuff that is personal on this blog. It is mainly for things I see and take pics of. For this Music Monday here are some songs that inspire me. I listen to them when I need that spark:









And the song I listen to every morning every morning. It is 13 minutes long but it is something that I love and inspires me every day. I have had the good fortune to chat and email the composer Tom Hedden a bunch. If you listen to it you will be uplifted and the period from 9:51 until the end of the song is super. The whole song is awesome but that part really inspires me.:

It is considered the largest celebration on Filipino Americans in the United States. Pistahan San Francisco is about the best in Filipino culture. This year I decided to focus on the art and music I saw at Pistahan:



























The Pistahan Festival is one of my favorite festivals that I attend during the year. I just love it.

High Scores: The Classic Acarde Games Museum


When I was in Alameda, I stumbled across this place called High Scores. It was an interactive arcade museum that featured some of the greatest games to ever been played. It was like $10 for two hours and all the games were set to free play. Who remembers these classic games:










It was great being to see and play these games from my misspent youth.
