Great article about Memorial Stadium and Cal Spirit. Built in 1923 to honor Californians who lost their lives in World War I, Memorial Stadium gained entry on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006. Two seventh-graders, however, recognized Memorial Stadium's appeal some 50-plus years earlier, when Joe Kapp and Everett Alvarez, friends from Salinas, visited Cal's Berkeley campus with their teacher. "A young teacher, Pamelina Brunelli, took us up to Berkeley from Salinas -- in those days it was a three-lane road -- and we got to go to the Cal-Missouri game," Kapp said. "Everett and I with Miss Brunelli, we walked up Strawberry Canyon, went by the life science building, went by the Bancroft Library. ... "So we get past all these beautiful buildings, and Everett says, 'Miss Brunelli, what do we have to do to go to school here?' Then we get to the stadium ... and the best band in the land comes on the field ... and I said, 'Never mind that. Miss Brunelli, what do I gotta do to play football here?'"
