Big game day. Not only is it the first home game of the football season but it's against Ohio State. This is the Pac 10 v. Big Ten clash that football fans have been dying to see. So.freaking.excited!
Mr. D and I are fancypants donors so we snagged four extra tickets to this sold-out game at the Coliseum.
Invited this fabulous foursome: Mr. Architect, Silver Haired Fox, Mr. NBC and Sable Crow. My very favorite mos from college. Felt like I was inside a hilarious episode of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. All day.
For example, Sable Crow brought Sprinkles. To a tailgate! Adore!
And Mr. NBC arrived bearing mimosas! Seriously, gay men make everything better. No wonder I'm a hag.
(Unfortunately, Silver Haired Fox and Mr. Architect couldn't tailgate before the game. SHF is stumping for Obama in swing states. So he had to attend "Obama Camp" all day. How much do you adore it!!!!)
Before the game we met up with Chowmein for some drinks.
And cuddles with this gorgeous creature.
Then we joined my former co-worker Rocket Man and his MChu at their Trojan cuddlefest.
They are our usual game day partners in crime. They taught this old bird how to shotgun a beer. And they roast a pig in the center of campus every year. They are hard core.
We ran into Traveler on the way in to the stadium.
And Denzel too!!
The game was a yawn. Over before it started. For all their shit talking this week, Ohio had nothing. F.
During half time, the six of us hung out together, ate naughty things and drank smuggled booze.
Perfect start to the season. I smell another championship.

Despite blogger opinions to the contrary, I love this Victoria Secret "Collegiate" T-shirt. I am a sucker for hearts. And yellow. And the Trojan logo. Plus it was cut well, not too Ronald McDonald and cost just $25. It does say PINK on the back in white block letters but um, my hair covers it.
Wish I had been wearing this shirt when all the Buckeyes were doing cheers on the way into the stadium. Blech. Or maybe the other shirt we saw that said: "Is Ohio even a state?"
Decided to glam up the t-shirt and jeans with my golden flats. Chose these two gold bangles for some extra bling.
At the last minute added this Cartier red bracelet.
Got it in a gift bag at a Cartier event Little Miss MBA took me to years ago.
It was that event where Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were looking REALLY REALLY thin in white and satin. My how times have changed: Lindsay's a lesbian, Nicole's a mother and Nicky is now the too thin one.
Struggled with how else to accessorize the outfit. How to fashion it up. Thought about adding this faux Burberry hat.
Or this hippie feather headband in cardinal. After all the USC victory sign is the same as the peace sign ;)
In the end, decided to embrace the casual. Not look like I was trying so hard. Settled on these Chloe-inspired sunglasses in red with a headband to tame the curls and my Louis Vuitton earrings. See the heart matching the heart!
There are so many ways to accessorize on game days. You can rock a Trojan mowhawk.
A Trojan sombrero.
The ever important travel flask.
