What a fun day, and a great way to ring in the New Year! I was one of over 96,000 people attending the game, and the crowd was so incredibly nice! We had an equal amount of Stanford and Wisconsin fans in my little section, and yes... everyone got along! The Stanford Marching Band (not an official band of Stanford University- I learned this yesterday!) was hilarious, and kept making very punny cheese jokes had everyone laughing. The Wisconsin Marching band was impressive. Very impressive! We were amazed at their energy... after walking a 5 mile parade route then playing during the whole game, they managed to put on a stellar show during half time!
Well played Stanford and Wisconsin fans!! Well played!
The only bummer? My camera's batteries just died before the game, so I missed the stealth bomber flying overhead. It truly is the most amazing thing to see... so I just shrugged it off and enjoyed my favorite part of any sporting event being the National Anthem and the Stealth Bomber "fly-by".
