So, I understand, from listening to traffic reports on the radio yesterday that the Rose Bowl game was played last night.
It has always been my understanding in the past, that the entire purpose for having the Rose Bowl game was so the people of the city of Pasadena could celebrate the fact that that boring-ass parade was finally over. So did they wait until yesterday morning to have the Rose Parade?
I suspect that the answer to that is “No,” on account of it would be REALLY impractical to have a huge parade on a weekday that isn’t even a holiday.
Presuming that I’m correct in that supposition, did they also have a regular Rose Bowl Game? 'Cos if you’re going to celebrate a parade being over, it would strike me as kinda anti-climactic to wait five days. It just seems that the level of elation and excitement might drain off some. ESPECIALLY if people have to go to work and stuff.
So what’s the story here?
