I saw some highlights on TV. The stadium looked half empty. Are Palo Altans fair weather fans only? Or did the Friday afternoon start time cut into busy Silicon Valley work (or party) schedules?

Stanford escaped with a win. I hope they play better at the Rose Bowl than they did last night.

Resident - We were thinking about going, but when I checked, the lowest price was $80 per ticket. Prices were set by NCAA. Students could get in for $20. $160 to sit in the rain was too much for us. Not everyone in Palo Alto has a huge entertainment budget.
I agree it looked bad on TV to see the low attendance. Blame it on the prices, weather, and the fact that the game was televised.

Maybe the reason people weren't at the game was the same reason resident wasn't at the game, whatever that was.
