Rice driving in the third quarter...
Marcus Rucker punches over the south goal line from the 2 for Rice's
first score of the second half. Rice leads 41-28 at 10:04.
Typical showing of San Jose fans. Some left early. Those who
didn't got to see the game of their life
Rice fans'/coaches' wives -- cheering the Owls' early success. (Photo
by Brian Hoblit) A number of coaches' wives made this trip, including a Saturday morning
shopping excursion to San Francisco. They are in the upper row. (Kicking coach Steve
Kidd's wife is wearing the top with broad blue horizontal stripes.) There were several
groups of enthusiastic Rice fans seated along the east stands. San Jose State's Band
is visible in the background.
Dr. Camacho and Zack Hoblit. After Zen retires, he's going into politics....
(Photo by Brian Hoblit.) The Rice cheeleaders looked great! They were very
active .. leading a cheer at the reception and doing numerous pyramids like this one.
Boster family: L-R: David, Ginny, David Stobb, & Alyce Boster.
David and Alyce live in Los Altos; Ginny and David in Venice Beach (Los
Angeles). A season ticketholder for the SF Giants, David and his family stood
outside the entrance to the alumni reception intently listening to the end of the
Giants-Dogers game. As they had all too often this year, the Giants' bullpen collapsed,
turning a 3-0 lead into a 7-3 loss, losing the NL West to the Dodgers and ceding control
of the wild card berth to the Astros.
Meredith-Hoblit: L-R: Adrienne Meredith (Lovett 97), Zach Hoblit (2.5
months!) and Brian Hoblit (Lovett 96). Zach was the youngest attendee at the alumni
reception. He was quite the trooper during the event and through the game itself. The
happy family lives in Sacramento where Adrienne just finished UC-Davis Law School and
Brian, a hydrologist, is about to become a part-time stay-at-home Dad.
