The Rose Bowl

rose-bowl-blog-4It’s a brand new year and a brand new bowl.  The Rose Bowl 2017.

Originally titled the “Tournament East-West football game”, The Rose Bowl is an annual American college football bowl game played at The Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California. It’s nicknamed “The Granddaddy of Them All” because it is the oldest bowl game — first played in 1902. Since 1945, it has been the highest attended college football bowl game. And on January 2, it will be the battleground of the Penn State Nittany Lions and the USC Trojans.

While everyone has their favorite team, our house is a Penn State house.

And this includes Penelope and Leia.

When it comes to playing ball, Leia is the undisputed champ.

However, Penelope often intercepts.

Then the game becomes frustrating. At least for one of the players.

Nobody tackles.  Leia and Penelope are much too polite for that.

But there is an offence.

And a Defense.

Until HALFTIME.

Game time stops.  Eating starts.

SECOND HALF.

Forget The Rose Bowl.

It’s time to dream about a different bowl: a bowl filled with goodies, next to the water bowl.
