The Stadium Experience:

California Memorial Stadium - Berkeley, CA. Let’s start this write up with a MAJOR shout out and thank you to Diane Milano for taking the time to help me get in some great shots and experiences with the spirit groups. Let me inform you that there are no public parking spots on the campus. I repeat THERE ARE NO PUBLIC PARKING SPOTS ON CAMPUS. This makes for creative parking ideas. I parked in the city of Berkeley and walked, but it was quite the hike. I do not recommend doing what I did, because you are only allowed 2 hours on your meter. I ran the risk of a parking ticket, but cared less. I do recommend driving towards campus and finding some of the people that will allow you to park in their driveways for $20. I passed many of them as I walked to the stadium. I will know better on my next trip out. J Parking nets a 3. The fanfare was awesome! The teams walk into the stadium was energetic and full of excitement. I was ready to get into the stadium and watch some football after that. Unfortunately, Cal was building a new parking garage (great idea) next to the stadium where the Fan Fest will be in the future. So, nothing after the team walk, but that alone nets a - 7. The rah rah inside the stadium simply didn’t stop! It was a big party as the Bears stomped all over Sacramento State. I wonder how high the energy bar goes for Pac-12 games. – 8. The band was enjoyable. Nothing particularly noteworthy, but solid. – 6. Concessions – 5. Cal was a good time. A place I would revisit again. I would just plan better when parking my rental – 29. Long flight back to the east coast, and then a, relatively, quick drive to Philadelphia to see Temple in two weeks.
