Stanford’s Cardinal and White Spring Football Game at Kezar Stadium a Huge Success

Thousands of Stanford University fans turned up at Kezar Stadium today for the annual Cardinal and White game:

“In keeping with past practice, Coach Jim Harbaugh used a draft to divide the roster into Cardinal and White teams. Assistant Lance Anderson, who will coach the Cardinal, had the first pick and took quarterback Andrew Luck. Assistant Tim Drevno, who will coach the White, was then given three selections. It’s a full-contact scrimmage for everyone except Luck, who is off limits to tacklers.”

This was a big deal – Mayor Newsom went and declared today “Stanford Football Day in San Francisco”

It all happened beneath UCSF medical school and our cardinal and white Sutro Tower:

They even brought up 16 cheerleaders, who rooted for both sides.

Oh, here he is, #12, Cardinal QB Andrew Luck

He looks like an intense Tom Cruise, except taller. Let’s see how he does over the next third of a second. 

Success, as Tight End Zach Ertz catches a bullet. 

O.K. then. Do people actually gamble on this game? Apparently.

See you next year! (Maybe)

  1. Look at the third pic. You can see a guy with spectacles in the back. What may be he is looking at??? Any idea?

    Good catch.

    I’d say he’s on the job, taking care of business. Speaking of good catches, a few seconds later he was part of the basket that caught the topmost cheerleader after she made a leap of faith.

    I think in the old days, cheerleaders jumped higher, but these stunts are dangerous enough anyway….
