House Divided: UCLA vs. Stanford Football 10/3

This past weekend was our first trip to the Bay Area together since we got married: we went to the Stanford-UCLA football game.

We were somewhat weary of making the trip because neither of us are in perfect health right now and had a tough week. But, we already booked the hotel and bought the tickets and it's hard to turn down a game at Stanford stadium (at least for Christine it is) so we went.

The game was at 12:30 on Saturday, so we went to Stacks for breakfast (one of Curtis' favorite places to eat) and headed to the stadium to tailgate with our friends. Stanford dominated the game, but UCLA made a significant comeback at the end and got the Stanford fans on their feet, cheering for the Defense. Final score was 24-16, a Stanford win. Christine was thrilled, Curtis was bummed, but happy for Christine. We went to the bookstore and stocked up on gear for the family, met up with friends, and then headed back to LA. We'll be back in the Bay on October 24 for Stanford Homecoming vs. Arizona State.
