College Football: Washington at Cal


I went to the Washington/Cal game a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't much of a game as Washington crushed Cal 66-27 but fun part was seeing Memorial Stadium at night. Because of the non-existent parking, most Cal fans take BART (our subway) but with games starting at 7:30pm and lasting almost four hours and with BART closing at midnight, you are cutting it close. I haven't been to a true night game in years but it was nice seeing the place all lit up:






Only had my cell phone (forgot my camera), so the game shots were not great:

Touchdown Washington



And some dufus got in  line to go in at 4pm as the gates opened at 5:30 to make sure that he got his Marshawn Lynch Bobblehead (only for the first 10,000) and saw a couple of things:

This is the coolest bobblehead

  1. You are the second person I have read about that got in line to get the bobble head! Fun! Our son attended a football camp at Cal this summer and went on and on about their campus! Looks like a great time!

  3. That is the coolest bobblehead! So glad that "dufus" got in line so early to snag it! Love the photos, Patrick. Not bad for a phone camera! Thanks for sharing!

  7. IT always amazes me how many people you get to college games in the USA. If that was Australia there would probably be 100 people dotted around the edges of the field (if you're lucky). I went to a Penn State game back in 1991. LOVED IT! It was an eye opener. They are now my USA college football team. I still have my PSU hoodie :)

  10. Ha - I love bobbleheads. I have a Yoda one and he's my good luck charm - ha. I've only been to one USA college football game (Michigan) and it was very exciting. Much different than how it is in Canada. I love the energy of the crowds at these events.

  12. Patrick, looks like you had a great time. Cal took a whoopin' didn't they? OUCH! Tennessee has its moments this season but still they do more losing than winning. Cute bobblehead!

  15. Awesome photos and what a cool bobblehead. Beast mode was some kind of player. He was hilarious on adventures with Bear Grylis too! Thanks for sharing your trip. It looks like you had a blast. Have a happy Thanksgiving weekend. Blessings to you and yours. Go Clemson!
