"The Pasadena Tournament of Roses®, in a joint effort with Legacy Connections, is proud to announce the launch of the Brick Campaign at the Rose Bowl Stadium.

The Brick Campaign will allow fans of the Rose Bowl Game® and Rose Bowl Stadium to purchase personalized pavers and bricks that will be incorporated into the iconic plaza in front of Gate A, leading to the main entrance of the stadium."

 

 

I've had a lot of great memories watching the Bucks in Pasadena and will undoubtedly be buying one to leave my mark.

Makes for a great gift idea for that Buckeye those Buckeyes on your Holiday list, IMO.

“We are excited to invite college football fans to celebrate the 100th edition of The Granddaddy of Them All® one brick at a time,” said Tournament of Roses President, Scott Jenkins.  “The Rose Bowl Game and its memories have touched so many lives from across the country for over a century and we feel this is a wonderful way for people to leave a legacy at the foot of America’s Stadium.”

There will be approximately 27,500 bricks as part of the mosaic design varying in size and finishing.  Bricks will range in price from $100 to $425 with optional incentives including replicas and display cases.  Fans can choose from text-only designs or text and logo options.  Public sale will begin in August with project installation slated for April 2014."

When I read about things like this, the 12-year-old boy inside me screams to get out.  If I had any money, I would really want to buy a brick for...

Why don't we all pitch in and get "BUCKSFAN CHANGING HIS ICON" on one?

Nice.

I'll see about waking those still hungover from that party...thread:

My second night in college and I walk in on this.

Johnny Football is that you? Now it all makes sense why you didn't make it to camp in time. You fell asleep on the toilet.

We should somehow coordinate to get a whole bunch of OSU bricks together.
