Rose Bowl 2009, January 2009

Santa Monica Pier turns 100 years old on September 9, 2009. The Pier is a focal point for the beautiful Santa Monica sunsets and offers a variety of entertainment, dining and shopping experiences daily for locals and tourists. Activities include the historic 1922 Carousel, the interactive aquarium, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Factory (owned by the producer of the famous film, Forrest Gump), the West Coaster (roller coaster) and the Ferris Wheel. As you stroll the planks you might be entertained by street performers such as jugglers, magicians and artists. Admission is free and the Pier is open 365 days/year.

Although most fans, including me, were disappointed to watch the Lions lose to the famous USC Trojans, there were great sights and places to visit in Southern California. I personally stayed in Santa Monica and was lucky enough to capture one of the many beautiful sunsets near the famous Santa Monica Pier. Penn Staters were housed all over Los Angeles and most of the visitors went to the Tournament of Roses Parade the morning of the Rose Bowl Game.

Along with the Rose Bowl panoramics, traditional sized image have been added (similar to the Orange Bowl section). I tried to place good, sharp images with some sort of identifier (yard line markers, etc.) to help "find" yourself. Pricing will be a little different than last years postings on PayPal. The biggest change will be that the 8 x 10s will not be matted and will only cost $29/ea. There will be a $6 shipping charge and will be shipped in a sturdy tube via USPS for a total of $35. All other PayPal prices remain unchanged. Pictures have codes such as RB1 (In actual Rose Bowl facility), TofR1, TofR2 (Tournament of Roses). You must use the identifiers when ordering!

Rose Bowl

Before the game, the Penn State Marching Blue Band was featured in the Tournament of Roses Parade led by the Cheerleaders in their own float made from Blue and White Flowers. All the floats are made with natural material, such as flowers (mostly), bark, live trees, etc. This parade cannot be truly appreciated until you see it for yourself. This was a great experience for all the supporting cast people at the game.

The Penn State Marching Blue Band thrilled the upbeat crowd of 93,000 viewers to the PSU letters during the pregame. The Penn State fans were cheering hard when the band took the field. See more pre-game shots.

This picture sort of "has it all," combining the Pageantry of Big Time College Football, the cheerleaders, the mascot the world famous living legend Coach Joe Paterno and all of the 2008 seniors in one image. Coach Paterno was speaking to over 20,000 fans who made the trip to beautiful Beverly Hills High School in Beverly Hills, CA. The coach was beaming and one of his statements was "this is why I am in college football." See more pre-game shots.

Rose Bowl

In beautiful, sunny Southern California on January 1, 2009, the Penn State Nittany Lions were on the 50-yard line defending the USC Trojan offense. In fact the team played USC to a 7 - 7 first quarter draw, but the second quarter was a killer. It was a gorgeous sight with the rugged San Gabriel Mountains hovering over the Penn State end zone.

 Rose Bowl

This signature trademark of the Penn State Football team being led onto the field by the Male and female cheerleaders was a beautiful sight for this ROSE BOWL. It was a beautiful day, the flags were flying and the crowd of at least 40,000 Penn Staters was alive with enthusiasm and anticipation.

Rose Bowl

The Floating Lions arrangement of the PENN STATE MARCHING BLUE BAND is the signature formation. The band first spells out the word
"L I O N S"
and then marches North and then reverses itself and spells out L I O N S so the people on the East side of the stadium can read the letters. It is a beautiful site.

Rose Bowl

During the fourth quarter it was almost dark and the LIONS were moving the ball impressively. When I photographed this, I was trying to capture the beauty and magnitude of the stadium positioning. The Rose Bowl Stadium is nestled in a Valley, with the imposing San Gabriel Mountains to the North and the last visages of the setting sun. It was a sight to behold.
