One of the better parts of the Rose Bowl Game — the Granddaddy of Them All, if you miss Keith Jackson like I do — is the pageantry of the Tournament of Roses Parade. And today's was no different. Here's the Wisconsin marching band playing the Wisconsin fight song, "On Wisconsin." (That was a lot of Wisconsin for one sentence.)
The 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade may be remembered, though, for a remark that will be amusing to the 12-year-old in all of us: KTLA personality Stephanie Edwards, in talking about the properties of various nuts when used to preserve the faces seen on some parade floats, managed to put the words "nuts" and "face" in close enough proximity for some chuckles.
The Rose Bowl Game will kick off at 4:30 p.m. Eastern, as Big Ten champion Wisconsin takes on undefeated Mountain West champion TCU.
