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.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
