The Stadium Experience:

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum - Home of the USC Trojans. Parking near the stadium was expensive - $45. I found a nice family that allows parking near their home at 826 w 40th Pl (323)243-1212 for $30 at the time of this writing. Proximity, ease of departure, and cost makes this parking experience an 8. We then walked over to the ESPN fan zone, caught the band's pre-game practice, caught the band's pre-game concert at the Tommy Trojan statue, and then marched with the band to the stadium! All in all it was highly exciting and fun - a solid 9 for fanfare. We sat with the visiting (Boston College) team's fans since I was rooting against USC. One very odd thing was USC had a MAJOR ISSUE with cameras. I was taking pictures like I always do to recount my journey and was approached by security and threatened. I mean WTF??? That was the only real downer on an otherwise good fan experience - 7. The Coliseum is in a residential neighborhood that isn't the best; so, there ain't much to see. - 3. Concessions were pricey, BUT they had a twist that I hadn't experienced before - they had food trucks parked that gave you access to several different types of food in addition to the stadium's bland and common offerings. I have to give high marks for the diversity - 8. I had a good time at USC, but probably wouldn't return. I do recommend it for all fans to do at least once. USC gets a solid 35. Short drive to San Diego for SDSU next week.
