While Los Angles is really a desert, without natural/local fresh water rain is a badly needed commodity here in the City of Angels… Yet with every rain drop seems to come traffic tie up, fender benders and even once in a while an overturned truck.
Maybe the absense of rain and the dust is why our freeways like the 405,101,5 and 210 have so many cars sliding into one another… Perhaps drivers training should have a mandatory rain day lesson?
Yesterday evening, the NFL hosted an All Access event at the Grand Daddy of all “The Rose Bowl” in Pasadena!
It was a pleasure yesterday to see/meet head coach Bruce Arians (of the Arizona Cardinals) and Mike McCoy of the San Diego Chargers! As a lifelong NFL fan/season seat holder (Cardinals/Raiders) getting to finally see Andrea Kremer in person and to say hello to the beautiful and talented Amy Trask (former executive with the “Raiders”) was pure heaven.
Bill Romanowski and Mark Sanchez along with Jay Glazer also made the event a lot of fun too. They all were panelists, along with Mike Perierra (ex NFL referree/Fox Analyst).
The evening event was presented by the Los Angeles Sports and Entertainment Commission, took place on the field….which was another joy to walk on the grass then to be able to throw footballs (5,10,20 yards) on the Rose Bowl field.
The locker room tour was great (except for the fact it was a “UCLA Bruin” locker room) to meet Gordon “Red” Batty who is a 20+ year equipment manager for the Green Bay Packers who showed us how to Suit Up Like a Pro!
To talk hockey with him, a true Montreal Canadian fan, was fun too!!!
The food was great, Catered by Wolfgang Puck, the atmosphere was pleasant, also meeting a few cheerleaders from the Cardinals,Raiders and Chargers was fun had by all!!! Yes this fan is looking forward to 2013 Football Season!!!
