The Atmosphere

The Stanford-Oregon State game resembles an NBA summer league game with two bands surrounded by empty seats. The Staples Center is beginning to fill in and my press seats are pretty amazing, right behind the Stanford bench. Being a Cal guy, I have mixed emotions about this, but you definitely get a better feel for the game being so close.

There are scouts here, shoe company gurus such as the Pump Brothers, George Raveling, saw Lorenzo Romar hanging out because the Stanford-Oregon State winner will play Washington, and various other assistant coaches and former players checking out the first game.
