Despite flying to California and back in a 27 hour period, the travel wasn’t too bad and miraculously the (tight) timing worked out and the dude who checked in our rental car marked the gas tank as full when it most certainly was not. The sun was shining in Pasadena and, after landing at LAX, we had a delicious breakfast at Uncle Bill’s Pancake House in Manhattan Beach. We watched Michigan football win its homecoming game from Barney’s Beanery in Pasadena before heading to the Rose Bowl, where it all went downhill from there in truly spectacular fashion.
Life lessons, my friends. Sometimes these trips are nothing more than life lessons.
The final after extra time: USA, 2 – Mexico, 3.
