The Spring Game events start today at 10 AM at Memorial.  If you go, you might see me!  Also, other events will occur:

  • Live Scrimmage – Watch the Bears in action during a live team scrimmage
  • Run On The Field With The Bears – First 100 fans in attendance receive a ticket good for the opportunity to lead the Bears onto the field through the North Tunnel
  • Giveaways – First 2,500 fans receive Cal-themed food, schedule posters and t-shirts
  • Youth Clinic – Free 30-minute clinic on the field for youth eighth grade and below (registration begins at 10 a.m. on Lisa and Douglas Goldman Plaza)
  • In-Game Events and Activities – Lucky fans will be able to win great prizes for competing in on-field promotional events
  • Field Club – The exclusive Field Club will be open featuring food and beverages, two levels of seating to relax and over 20 televisions to watch the event on the Pac-12 Networks
  • Food Options – Concession stands managed by Cal Dining will also be open for business on the main concourse
  • Appearances by Oski, Cal Spirit and the Cal Band
  • Pregame Fun Zone and Kids Activities
  • Cal Bears Shop Merchandise Sale

I like how they are promoting the fact you can buy food.  Who wants overpriced stadium food, but this time NOT during the fall!  I can make all the snarky comments I want (and I will), but I'll be there bright and early without any shred of dignity.  It's the CGB Way!

You can watch it live at 11 AM on the Pac-12 Network, so feel free to leave your comments, thoughts, and tweets here!

Here are some Twitter accounts to check out as they may have information on the spring game:

@GoldenBlogs: We could tweet. Maybe we could sleep too.

@AGuyNamedNam: Nam will provide whatever information he can.
