More Emerald Bowl Photos

I had fun, and the win was exciting, but I'll be honest: I would still rather have a trip to Vegas or San Diego. 

Here are my original seats, right next to the band on the left field bleachers.  I kind of shifted around until I was next to some guys who were pretty into the game: making noise on D, cheering etc.  Everyone_else in the section was stone-faced silent.  Unfortunately the real owners of those seats came so I had to move down a few rows and over, to sit with rest of the fans educated at the Milford Academy.

Others have mentioned how close the end zone is to the fans.  Here is an illustration of that.  I seriously don't understand how this is legal; if a player were to go for a diving catch towards the back of the endzone, he would slam helmet-first into the wall, which is like 3 feet beyond the back of the endzone.

"It IS metal!!"

 

This did result in some pretty sweet shots of the parachuters.

This is also what a farting contest at the Friedgen home looks like.

This is why you're the backup.

 

Can you imagine this scene while high?

America's Favorite QB practices with Luxury Yacht.   They weren't actually throwing  or anything.  Boateng just likes holding the ball way up high like that.

Here's why my seats sucked.  I was so close to the goalpost and so low to the field, the crossbar obscured ~30 yards of depth on the field.  I either had to crouch down or stand up to see anything at all.

Awesome drive summary.

The seats were so crappy I eventually moved over to the student section.  I'll say this, though, the jumbotron is awesome.  Can the Phoenix Five pull together a plot to steal this next time?  Even the players had a better view of the game by watching the screen...

Coach, can we switch over to ANTM?

Til next time...
