UCLA vs Texas is why I am offline

UCLA hosts Texas today at the Rose Bowl.

We have season ticket (go Bruins). New, better location this season — 25 yard line behind the Bruin bench. Very close to the field.

No tax blogging today. It is time for some fun. 12:30 game time, anticipated with some trepidation by this Bruin fan.

If you have never attended a football game at the Rose Bowl, it is a scenic treat. You will park on a golf course. The mountains in the background are postcard-perfect. And do not fail to buy one of those bacon-wrapped hot dogs with grilled onions that are sold by countless freestyle vendors outside the stadium. Awe-inspiring.

Go Bruins!
