Football: Greetings from Memorial

Just got settled in the press box here after enjoying some nice conversations with members of the 1959 Rose Bowl team. The team is having a pregame get-together and will be honored on the field between the third and fourth quarters of today’s game.

It is an absolutely gorgeous day for football. I’ll check back in a little later, especially when we find out who is starting at quarterback. Also, stay tuned for some links in a few minutes.
