The Rose Bowl Game has long been one of my favorite annual sporting events. I watched my first televised Rose Bowl on Jan. 2, 1956. I was 10 –- almost 11 –- and Michigan State defeated UCLA, 17-14. I remember my uncle from Seattle coming south in 1961 to attend the Washington-Minnesota game. The Huskies beat the No. 1-ranked Golden Gophers, 17-7, behind the efforts of quarterback Bob Schloredt. My family attended the Tournament of Roses Parade in 1963 with our cousins who lived in Arcadia.

Bryce Alderton A passer turned pastor, Danny O'Neil will get to relive a day of glory when he steps onto the field at halftime of this season's Rose Bowl between USC against Michigan. The former Corona del Mar High and Mater Dei quarterback, who led the Oregon Ducks to the 1995 Rose Bowl, set five records in earning Co-Player of the Game laurels along with Penn State running back Ki-Jana Carter in a 38-20 Nittany Lions' victory that day in Pasadena.

When Ned Lyon arrived for the fall semester at Oregon, there was something gnawing at him. Call it regret. But it was something urging him to try the game he left behind at Newport Harbor High. He hated how his final football season with the Sailors ended. They won their last game, but they missed the playoffs after a bizarre process to determine postseason berths among five teams in the Sunset League. White-out bottles were picked out of a wooden bucket and Newport Harbor missed the playoffs.

They wanted to play for the national championship in New Orleans, but playing in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena instead worked out fine for the USC Trojans Tuesday. It didn’t look as though anyone in Southern California could really complain. USC crushed Illinois in a 49-17 rout Tuesday in front of thousands of fans in the stadium and even more watching on TV. “Well, it’s a big deal, especially for us Trojans. We’ve been on a pretty good trip the last three or four years.

When Paul Salata attends the Rose Bowl today, his thoughts will be with the late President Ford. Not because of any of the 38th president's achievements in office or even on the football field, but rather because of a personal connection: Ford was one of Salata's closest friends, and the former college football players — Ford for the University of Michigan and Salata for USC — placed bets whenever their teams met in the Rose Bowl....

Some Southland families will get a special treat Saturday, thanks to the ingenuity of a couple of Newport Beach businessmen. Northwestern Mutual Financial Advisor Paul Glowienke and Financial Representative Nate Fikse are giving 40 families a "Great Escape" this weekend from dealing with the struggles of pediatric cancer. FOR THE RECORD: A previous version of this story had the wrong first name for Nate Fikse. They teamed up with Starlight Children's Foundation to come up with the day spent at the UCLA vs. Stanford game at the Rose Bowl.

Noaki Schwartz NEWPORT BEACH -- The Rose Bowl courtship has begun. Over the next few months, the alumni of college football's crowning universities will be the target of Rosalind Williams' alluring arrows. The president of Newport's Conference and Visitors Bureau has been sending a lot of gifts to the alumni associations of Pacific-10 and Big 10 universities lately -- red roses, poetry and enticing puzzle pieces that will eventually "form a pictorial image of all things fabulous about Newport."

June Casagrande NEWPORT BEACH -- Once a hot destination for Rose Bowl tourism, the city is facing new, bigger challenges in attracting fans, players and bands from the annual New Year's game. Today's game for the national championship between Miami and Nebraska marks the first year that teams don't represent the Pac 10 and Big Ten conferences. The change -- a part of the collegiate Bowl Championship Series -- has been devastating for Newport Beach's efforts to market the city as a Rose Bowl destination.

I f you do not know that the City of Newport Beach has a centennial float called "Sailing Through a Century" in the Rose Parade or that USC will face Texas for the national championship in the Rose Bowl, you must be from out of town. It's a big New Year's week for the City of Newport Beach and for Southern California. But there are some confusing things about this year's events. For example, the Rose Parade will be held on Jan. 2 -- not on New Year's Day. And the Rose Bowl game that usually follows the parade will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 4, beginning at 5 p.m. There are good reasons for this.

Don Cantrell Two noteworthy football names out of the Harbor area from the early days, Harold Pangle and Bob Milum, always appear in the local conversations when Oregon State becomes a Rose Bowl possibility. And that's the picture at this hour. Coincidentally, the Pacific Coast Conference at this time finds Oregon State possibly facing the Oregon University Ducks for title showdown within the next two weeks. It is rare for Oregon teams to be battling it out for the coastal in the same season, but that is the picture.

As New Year's Day draws near, the excitement continues to build for Al Freeman. The Granddaddy of Them All hasn't featured his beloved Michigan State Spartans in 25 years. Yes, they are his Spartans. That's because Freeman, an Irvine resident, isn't just any other Michigan State fan. You can call him Mr. Michigan State. When the Spartans go to the Final Four in men's basketball, he's there. He's been to four of them in the past 12 years. When it became evident Michigan State would face Stanford in the Rose Bowl, Freeman went into fanatic mode, mixed with his expert touch from his career.

Every college football season, Bo St. Geme and his father, Ed St. Geme, make a trip up north to catch a Stanford game. The father and son tend to stay at a family member's house in Menlo Park, which is a short drive to the stadium on campus. The family member is Matt Moran, who is Bo's uncle. Moran also happens to be a former teammate of Bo's dad. Ed and Moran played football at Stanford from 1981 to 1984 and they are two reasons why Bo is a rabid fan of the Cardinal. This season, Bo and Ed didn't make it to a game with Moran at The Farm, where Stanford plays.

The first weekend of January, USC and Alamitos Bay Yacht Club hosted the Rose Bowl Regatta in Long Beach. As is common for Southern California events, both Saturday and Sunday were very light breeze and racing started later in the day. Mike Segerblom, USC coach and race committee compromised by racing through late afternoon completing a total of nine races in each division, making it a solid event. Boston College took first place with MIT and Georgetown in a close 2nd and 3rd. On the high school scene, Point Loma won followed by Newport Harbor and Santa Barbara.

On Saturday, my wife and I treated our 16-year-old son to the USC-UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl. Roy had never been to a college or professional football game, let alone one with the rich history of the cross-town rivalry. As we expected, he had a great time. At the game there was one particular UCLA fan sitting three rows in front of me who, early in the second quarter, starting raising his hand repeatedly to “flip off” the Trojans whenever they did something right.
