Never dreamed that I would be attending the PAC 12 Championship in Tempe, Arizona.  I had arrived in Scottsdale for a business meeting when I learned that Arizona State was playing Stanford on Saturday night.  I went on Stubhub. com and scored two tickets in the Loge Section right on the 50 yard line with nobody in front of us.  Probably the absolute best seats in the house.  Since this was a PAC 12 event we knew going in that there would be no beer sales.  To me football with out a cold brew is like pizza without sauce.  To our surprise, it turns out the the Loge seating area which is strictly controlled with security and hand stamps sells beer!  Beer at a PAC 12 event.  Hallelujah!  With cold brews in hand we headed to our seats which were directly on the 50 yard line and complete with a ledge to hold our beers.  With nobody in front of us we had an unobstructed view of the field.  At the end of the first quarter, we headed to the concession stand where a girl asked to see our tickets.  She punched a hole in the ticket and allowed us to walk to the counter where get this - all of the food and drinks were free.  Included with your Loge ticket she said.  Hot Dogs, Bratwurst, Mac n' Cheese, Pop Corn, Cookies and Soda all there for the taking.  You can help yourself all throughout the game.  I grabbed a Bratwurst and some Mac n' Cheese.  The Bratwurst was delicious as was the Mac n' Cheese.  This I thought was a heck of a deal.  After refueling with another cold brew we headed back to our seats to find the Arizona State fans in deep depression.  Stanford was scoring on every possession and the Arizona offense just could not get in a rhythm to score.  We stopped routing for Stanford just to try to pump up the fans around us.  Go Sun Devils we yelled while the guy next to me looked down and probably had thoughts of jumping over the ledge.  He was visibly shaken and depressed.  It's only a football game I thought and we were here to take it all in and just have some fun.  Half time arrived and we were told that all of the beer stands on the Loge will close at the end of halftime.  Everyone in line for beer grabbed two each and we headed back to our great seats to watch Stanford kick a little booty.  Was happy that Stanford won but really liked the stadium and staff working the event for Arizona State.  As we left the stadium the tens of thousands of fans were sad but in good spirits.  The stadium was surrounded with police on foot and horse.  They were lined up along the walkways in full riot gear ready for anything.  The fans were calm as they made their way to the dozens of bars and clubs just minutes from the stadium.  The nightlife on the streets was electric and you could not tell that Arizona State had lost the game.  The fans evidently did win the party!
