Tommy Trojan Game Day Tips
The Rose Bowl – What can we tell you that you don't already know as veterans of this beautiful venue. Think about it, it's going to be either a one game visit to Pasadena or a return visit on January 1. You'd better soak in the day this Saturday because it figures that the next stop will probably be Glendale, Arizona. Okay, here is your tip for Saturday. Get there early as parking will be no better than it usually is. However, make a special effort to remind yourself where you've parked because how many of you have walked around in circles, especially when it turns dark, and needed a homing device to find your car? Tired of carrying stuff? You may check in items at Gates A and C of the Rose Bowl and may claim these items at the end of the game.
Tailgate – With the Trojans riding a seven-game winning streak over your friends from Westwood, they will be very quiet and sensitive to any comments about "The Streak." Expect the usual amount of banter between the cardinal and gold and the blue and gold, and please try to share some your goodies with our hosts, who know they need another Trojan victory like a hole in the head. The key here is to find a spot early to set up your Trojan flag and try to be kind with those hanging Bruin bears. A special request, those that are bringing Trojan Marching Band CDs, please try to play Tribute To Troy only every two minutes.
The Trojan Walk – The team busses of the good guys will be arrive two hours before game time and you don't want to be caught in a traffic jam as the busses go past you with the police escort. The Men of Troy know this game is for a trip to another national championship appearance, and Pete Carroll said last week the Trojan Walk was the best yet. There is no reason that the same can't be true this week at the Rose Bowl. The team will be dropped off on the west end of the Rose Bowl near Will Call (opposite of the golf course). You can also see the Bruins arrive in the Bruin Walk some moments before or after the arrival of the Trojans. Give yourself a chance to eyeball the participants. BTW, gates open for entrance into the Rose Bowl 90 minutes before kickoff.
UCLA Food Court – From past experience, this is a pretty good area to grab some grub if you haven't outdone yourself with a big tailgater. The Food Zone is the spot for food, fun, special promotional giveaways, and other activities like the sports talk radio shows for both teams. Food Zone is located just south of the Rose Bowl's main entrance in Area H.
Game Day Sports Bar/Restaurants
Head into Old Town Pasadena and make your own selection. Again, you know the drill. Since Saturday's game is a 1:30 p.m. kickoff, you'll have plenty of time to find a place, if you can get out of the Rose Bowl within two hours. Bordered by Marengo Ave. on the East and Pasadena Avenue on the West, Old Pasadena stretches from Holly Street on the North to Green Street on the South.
