    Great article today on a trip to Folsom Field.

    ESPN Travel

    Definitely check out the Photo Gallery that's with the story. :thumbsup:

    A couple great lines from the article:

    Maybe it's those mountain views, which can be intoxicating. Folsom Field sits in the middle of the CU campus, nestled somewhere between the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains and heaven.

    Colorado is the state's school; Colorado State is a state school.

    Great Write up!!

    Best Line :

    "We're not proclaiming Ralphie best in show, but if you rounded up Uga, Traveler and Bevo and shepherded them into the Colosseum with her for a battle of the college football mascots, we know which one we'd put our money on. And we'd be loading up."

    The three best places in Colorado are Folsom Field on game day, Mary Jane on the Challenger ski lift side in Feb-March and my grandmother's kitchen for the holidays.

    Brought along a family member to that game who'd never been before. She absolutely loved it. Especially the pep-rally in the field house. It's not as big as the mega-stadiums at some schools, but it's still got to be one of the best places in the country to watch a ballgame.

    Can't imagine it get's much better on any other campus around the country! ESPN has also mentioned many times before that Folsom offers up one of the best tailgating atmosphere's in the country.
