Grandpa and Grandma Kodiak made the trip out to Boulder to watch our beloved Golden Bears take on the Colorado Buffaloes.
In their words, "Boulder is a beautiful town. Good food. Nice people. Great beers!"
And the text sent immediately post-game: "Celebrated with players. Now to a Cal tailgate. In a sea of Buffs. Oh well, it's all Bear Territory now."
After the jump, photos!
Colorado has some beautiful stone architecture...But it's no Wurster, amirite?
The hallowed entrance to Folsom Field. This must be what Valhalla is like...only with less mead and fewer Vikings.
The teams warm up with the mountains in the background. It's like Strawberry Canyon, only with more lyme disease.
Seriously? A personal trailer for a burger with legs? Maybe it's refrigerated...
OMG! THERE'S A GIANT BUFFALO WITH HORNS N' FUR AND HOOVES RUNNING ON THE FIELD!!!
...And the rest of the herd...(I kid.)
The Best Damn Band in the land made the trip!
(Dear Chipotle, Please send us $$$ for gratuitous product placement. Love, CGB)
Nico Dumont makes his first catch! But it's a loooong yard to the goal line.
The CU defender has Nico wrapped up...
Nico will not be denied...
Nico Dumont. You can only hope to contain him. Touchdown Bears!
The pass from Maynard is perfect...no one but Miller can get a hand on it!
"The ball is my friend...The ball is my friend..."
"Anthony! Pretend it's a baby! You love your baby! You would never drop your baby!"
"Man...Kiesau is teaching y'all some whack stuff..."
One of the few calls the refs got right. (Just sayin'.)
CJ Anderson busts free!
"Don't make me run over you!"
"Okay. Fine. I hope those cleat marks wash off!"
"Coach! Can I do that again?"
It's overtime. In an apparent attempt to confuse the Cal offense, the Colorado Buffaloes have decided to use single coverage on Keenan Allen.
Keenan makes his move...
...The ball is in the air (work with me here)...KA has his defender walled off and is ready to leap!
He makes the catch! It's over! Touchdown Bears!
And the Bears have won!
That's it for this week, folks. Bring on the Blue Hose! Go Bears!
