Quarterbacks’ Brick at Rose Bowl

Did you know that your Pasadena Quarterbacks purchased ‘a brick’ as our contribution to the Rose Bowl upgrade? Here’s what it looks like:

PQ_RoseBowlBrickCropped

You can check it out in person: The brick is located at Gate “A” (the main south entrance to the stadium), at the northwest corner of the brick garden. Look for the City of Pasadena section. Our brick is in the bottom row, and under the word City.

A fitting tribute to the City, Rose Bowl, and our presence in both.
