College Football Pregame Stroll

I went to the Cal-San Diego St football game and like many others, I took BART and walked through the campus to get to Memorial Stadium. Others park in Downtown Berkeley and do the same walk or some take BART, get off at Rockridge station and take a public bus that gets you a couple of blocks near the stadium. I think you get the picture-there is basically no parking near the stadium unlike many other stadiums.

But I did find that Cal fans will find any place to get in the spirit for the game all over campus:

Cal does sponsor a "tailgate party" at Maxwell Field (the home of Cal Field Hockey):

And people are always milling about:

and then we are ready for some Cal football:

It may not be like some of the schools down south or in the midwest but pregame for Cal is always fun and entertaining:
