Aside from the stadium renovation discussion, Sunday's Rose Bowl Stadium Games were a lot of fun for the whole family. Schools and camps set up booth's, Bob's Big Boy, new to Pasadena, was on site as was local radio stations, the LA Galaxy and a many, many fun games. The public was able to walk all around the field, check out the locker rooms and receive tours of historic landmark. Local celebrities included Congressman Adam Schiff who could not have been nicer, Olympic gold medalist and former Tournament of Roses princess, Inger Miller was on site with her gold medal, which weighed a lot more than I imagined, as well as local news anchors, including Kent Schocknek from CBS, who is Los Angeles' longest running morning news anchor.
There were soccer and football shoot-outs, armchair athlete competitions (you literally sat in a lay-z-boy that moved like a bucking bronco and tried to throw the football in a hole), bouncers for children, face painters, raffles to local restaurants and more. It was a lot of fun and a really great way to connect to the community.
