The last, and biggest, college football game of the season plays out tonite here in Pasadena’s Rose Bowl! The NCAA Bowl Championship Series (BCS) title game.
The gladiators this year are Texas University ranked #2 & the University of Alabama ranked #1. Last time the national championship was here was in 2006.
Just last week another big event, the annual Rose Bowl game was played between the Universities of Oregon & Ohio State.
This is the most important event in Pasadena today. Plus, across the nation most eyeballs will be frozen to their televisions for this final game!
So, we’ve had a brunch of overeating humans from foreign states in this Christmas/New Years season.
Well, like any major event, it is made up of several parts. One is pre-game. And I don’t mean the day of game tailgating. I’m talking about pre-tailgating.

To show you what a sample of what I mean, yesterday afternoon I went down the block to visit Old Town Pasadena where most of the visiting Alabama & Texas fans are being held & fed prior to the big game.
As usual, the welcome mat was out for the people, near & far. Yeah, come on in – it’s W I D E open for y’all!
These southerners love their football, poetry, bbq fried food, artistry, plus never really lost their foreign accents. As for me, I wood bee satisfied to just love them Texas women!
Bumped into a cafe, Le Pain Quotidien, which is a fav joint with a couple of loco girls I know. Never been. So, we ck’d it out while cking out some of the action on the street. A review?? The girls here were very friendly and accommodating. Well, at least that’s what I thought. I gotta make a new years resolution to return to the old towne just to be sure.
Back out on The Streets…
Who do you think is gonna come out as the BCS champion this year?? The last time these two met in a Bowl game was, I believe, 1982! And, the last time Alabama played in the Rose Bowl was 1946 against us!
So, these universities, along with Oregon & Ohio State, have been behind the times in getting back to Pasadena. But, I guess their moto is, “better late than never again!”
I think we needed more K9 reinforcements to restore civility among the humans.
Seeing such unsportswomanlike conduct among these colorful groups makes me long for the old fashioned days of black n white where everyone spoke the same language. I gotta sit down after witnessing such behavior. Break time – ck’d out the partying at Barney’s Beanery Pub.
My observation was Alabama fan was outspending the Texan. And it appeared they also outnumbered Texan fan – in Old Town at least. Are these also hints to the outcome of the football championship?
The welcome mats were long ago set out across the nation.
Oh crap, if that bee de case! I feel a dog tailache starting. Hell, I better sit down & have a drink if this was really just about an alcohol championship…
Well, whatever the case. The game is only hours away at the Rose Bowl! Who do you think is gonna win: The Crimson Alabaman’s or the Orange Texan’s?? Polls will remain open only for a short time.

Starving – Gotta Eat! May the best team win. And, may the ultimate victor be Pasadena!
