The Causeway Classic

Causeway Classic Statistics

We went to a College Football Game on Saturday.

The Causeway Classic is the annual Football Game between UC Davis and Sacramento State University. Big rivalry!

We’ve watched the game a couple of times before when J was still in College and when I used to work in Sacramento for the first time. It was always a lot of fun! So I got J tickets for his birthday.
The weather was beautiful – 77°F – and I was wearing shorts and a tanktop. I even had to use the program as a sun screen for a while because the sun was shining me right in the face. Are you jealous now? :) Ok, I apologize for my bluntness.

You know, I usually don’t really care about Football. I barely understand the rules, which means I am happy to know when to cheer for the right team!, and the big guys don’t do a thing for me – what intrigues me the most about Football Games are the Marching Bands :)
If it is the stunning performances or merely the fact that we don’t have anything comparable in Germany, I can’t say. I just now that I am mesmerized by them. Especially by the guys who play the sousaphones. Have you seen them perform with their instruments? Hilarious and ingenious at the same time! I have no idea how they do it :)

The game was good. In accordance with the statistics [see above], UC Davis won once again with a score of 31:26 and J was one happy camper :) We had a lovely afternoon.

Later, I went out to dinner with Kari and her friend, Carri. [Man, I had no idea that there are so many ways to spell that name!]. Girls’ night! We went to a fairly new restaurant and tried some delicious thin crust pizza. Yum! I need to say that it can very much compete with all thin crust pizzas that I ‘ve had in my life. Definitely a place to take J to sometime. And they serve beer, too :) [Not that I care, but J does!]

  1. Yay foo’ball! Glad to hear that J’s team won.
    Pizza…?! I want pizza! ;-)

  2. Hehe, I never understood the rules either ;-)
    Nevertheless I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the football games as well!

  3. So what do you think of American beer? Which is your favorite!
