Back in the summer my family volunteered for the Special Olympics World Games. Many of you may have read the post about my experiences. Just when I thought we had taken all we could from the experience, a great gift came in our email! All of the volunteers were sent free tickets to attend a UCLA Football game! All the tickets were for the same game out at the Rose Bowl Stadium where the UCLA Bruins would be playing the Virginia Cavaliers.
These weren’t just any tickets… we were right down by the field! Before the game started they took a special moment for all the volunteers to stand up and be recognized. That special moment lead into a very exciting game where we were up close and personal for quite a few touchdowns! I managed to capture one of them on film and think through that you can feel the energy in the stadium. Watching a sporting event live is nothing like watching it on TV. I hope you are able to cheer loudly for your favourite team sometime soon!
