Rose Bowl Bound Illini!
Wow - the Rose Bowl! I am so excited, I can barely type. But, I am also disappointed because I probably won't be there to see the game. I can only imagine what it must be like to experience the Parade of Roses and then the Rose Bowl later in the day. Unfortunately, Pasadena is so far away! We had already made plans to meet up with friends assuming the Illini would be playing in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando. It is much closer and more affordable, so it fit perfectly with the rest of our holiday plans. But, I am glad my Illini are playing in a better bowl. So, we are looking into our options. Keep your fingers crossed that we can make it somehow. Otherwise, we'll have to throw one large bowl game party instead!
