What I did
Pomona-Pitzer at Lewis and Clark
That shirt has already helped on the tour. I was helping Owen wash his hands in the bathroom at the game, and a guy was reading my shirt
It's rating time...
Stadium - Griswold Stadium is about what you'd expect for a D-III school. It looks like a high school stadium, and it actually looked a bit smaller than the high school stadium in Hillsboro. There was only seating on one side, but there was a nice view of some evergreen trees on the other side. We did pick some unfortunate seats, though. There were two large columns blocking our view of one of the goal lines. Rating: 2 of 10.
Tailgating - Well, there was tailgating. And they allow beer. That's the most that can be said for it. There were well fewer than 100 people actually tailgating. One friendly fellow did walk around and invite everybody over to his spot, though, to make one large tailgate. I suspect it could be fun if you went to all the home games. Rating: 2 of 10.
The Game - We were hoping for a much closer game than we actually got
The Band - Well, at least they had a band. Sort of. It consisted of 15-20 people in a pep band. That was about it. No marching. Just sitting and playing. Rating: 1 of 10.
Fans - The fans were very respectful, although I didn't sense a lot of passion. That could have something to do with the lop-sided game. Rating: 4 of 10.
Best Player - For a while I was ready to give this to Matthew DeRosa, the Lewis and Clark right guard. He was pushing the defensive tackle 10-15 yards downfield on every running play. But, in the end, the four touchdowns (2 passing, 2 rushing) scored by Keith Welsh, the Lewis and Clark quarterback, made him the best player on the field.
Overall Rating - This week was understandably a down week compared to the rest of the games on the schedule. I don't have anything bad to say about it, as it was a good day. The weather was beautiful, the setting was pretty, and the kids had fun. It just simply can't compare to the other games. Rating: 2 of 10
