New Year, Dutch Goose

Stanford won the Rose Bowl!

Hogan did it!  He did it!

Today, another “first”:  Self and The Man watched the game at the Dutch Goose, along with other Stanford alumni.  We looked to be about one of the few oldies in the crowd.  The crowd was amazingly sedate, only bursting out into loud applause when Stanford scored a touchdown (twice, in the first quarter)

Self had potato fries, fries, fries.  She should have gone for the sweet potato fries.  The result was —  nausea.  After last night’s greasy bacon dog, today’s basket of fries just about finished off her stomach.

Still, the day was loads of fun.

We shared a table with a Computer Science grad from the 1970s.  He said back then, computer science wasn’t so much about programming.  It was more like engineering.  He actually remembered building something with slabs of concrete.  He remembered using punched index cards for his final.

This girl was nursing a Stanford tattoo on the back of her hand.  She said she was waiting to see someone with a tattoo on his/her face.

This man and the girl with the Stanford tattoo on her hand exchanged business cards and then left, about halfway through the game.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
