Cal Bears Game

Saturday was completely horse-less.

We went to Berkeley to visit with some friends and watch Cal Bears Football.

We had a great time hanging out at their house watching the Blue Angels fly by and the Hangar 1 Blimp float overhead.

We went to Freehouse in Berkeley at the corner of Bancroft and College for dinner.  I'd recommend their Tuna Melt.  The beef burger was good, too.  And their pretzel was hot and fresh and yummy.  All-around good.

And the building itself was beautiful, slate roof, beautiful windows, nice architecture.  We ate on the patio, amazed at the wonderful weather.

We walked to the newly rebuilt Memorial Stadium at Cal, along with thousands of other Cal fans, and some UCLA fans, including one UCLA fan we watched taken away in a paddy wagon (a Chevy Astro!) - with the cop saying, and I quote: "Dude, you're not making this any better.  Just shut up!"

Trying to get a photo in front of the Bear statue was tough - lots of people walking in front of us.

Sunset was awe inspiring.  My phone's camera leaves a bit to be desired, but it does manage great panoramic photos.

Standing inside the stadium looking over the bay, almost didn't want to go inside to our seats because the view was so amazing.

Eventually we made it to our seats and watched The Bears go down the field and score.  A few times.  One of the UCLA players had a familiar name.  Jerry Rice, Jr. I smiled every time I heard his name, even though he played for UCLA, because his father will always be a favorite of mine.

We look miserable don't we.....
