Watching the Cardinal take the field after halftime
Last weekend Ronan attended his first college football game, watching Stanford beat Sacramento State on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
I loved Ronan's enthusiasm to try something new- the guards at the gate thought it was great how eagerly he displayed our ticket. Inside Ronan enjoyed the crowds, especially the buzzing and always-standing student section.
Partying it up in the student section
It was clear though that his favorite part was watching the Tree (Stanford's mascot) dance around after Stanford scored (which happened quite a few times... the final was 52-17). Ronan also liked Stanford's fight song (All Right Now) and the 'whoop!' and jump the crowd performs at the end of each refrain.
Looking for himself up on the Jumbotron
True to being a two-years-old Ronan was happy to chow on kettle corn while watching the action. Also being true to his age he tried mightily to jump off the upper deck onto the seats twenty feet below.
Always climbing... at least this drop was less than six feet, and onto grass
It was a great afternoon- we're looking forward to seeing a soccer match or two @ Stanford in the near future!
