The National Anthem has just been completed by the Husky Marching Band and we're just moments away from both teams taking the field and kicking off the 2009 season. The captains are taking the field right now for LSU and the UW captains should be shortly behind.
Both are on the field doing team drills. The Husky Marching Band is starting to gather and ready to take the field! Almost time for Husky fans to get in your seats! 27:00 minutes on the scoreboard clock.
Starting lineups are being shown on the JumboTron and it is pretty cool, as each player is introducing themselves.
LSU is leaving the field right now with 24:00 minutes on the clock!6:35 p.m.:
An hour before kickoff and some fans are already in the stadium. The parking lot is packed with fans and there is a line to get into The Zone.
On the field there are several players from both squads, mostly special teams players and quarterbacks. LSU's band just arrived and was greeted by their contigent warmly of course. Just a few more minutes before all players will be taking the field for warm ups!
In news outside of the game, former Husky safety Lawyer Milloy signed with the Seattle Seahawks toda!
Well, the parking lots and The Zone are starting to get jumping. Just two hours from kickoff!
About an hour ago I went through the locker room, down the Husky tunnel onto the field and cruised over to the zone. I got some pictures, including inside the locker room, the Curtis Williams memorial, shots of the field and pictures of the zone.
I have to say, The Zone is going to be a GREAT alternative for those who want to tailgate closer to the Stadium. There are some excellent choices for eating, KJR is stationed in there as is KUBE, playing some tunes. There are plenty of activities for kids and adults as there is a huge covered beer garden. Also, there are suites that are set up for groups.
Take a look at the updated Pre-Game Photo Gallery that now includes photos of all the above described!
I arrived at Husky Stadium around 2:30 and things are starting to pick up. Cruised around E-11 and E-12 with the iPhone and took several shots of the tailgating in the parking lot.
