The Rose Bowl
Or “The Granddaddy of the All,” the Rose Bowl has been a symbol for College Bowl Games since the beginning. Every year on New Years Day (or January 2nd if New Years Day is on a Sunday) the Rose Bowl becomes the center stage for College Football oldest event. The entire day is dedicated to Roses starting early in the morning with the Tournament of Roses Parade which travels down Pasadena’s Colorado Blvd. I have been going to the Rose Bowl all my life. I have seen the UCLA Bruins play countless number of times there and also been to 2 Rose Bowl Games (Oregon vs. Wisconsin and College Football Playoffs Oregon vs. Florida St.) Each time I visit the Rose Bowl it brings back the days when I first got into watching a find a passion for football. The Rose Bowl is one of a kind, its timeless and precious and it will continue to be that way.
