The Story: Chronicling Cal’s 2006 football season. This included the trip to Tennessee that I posted earlier about, but that was so epic it deserved its own layout. These layouts cover the season generally and showcase little bits I want to remember (like that time Marshawn Lynch, now of the Seattle Seahawks, drove an injury cart out onto the field to celebrate an overtime win).
Reusing a Design: This design is very very similar to the design I used in 2005. It’s very challenging to include tickets, a fridge magnet, clippings, and photos all onto one page, especially when the tickets have to be lined up horizontally. I liked the design so hey, why not?
Season Specs: I’ve included a win-loss record and other key information for the season in every football layout since I became a Cal fan. The seasons run together in my mind and I like how I can instantly get a feeling for that year, who the coach was, and who the quarterback was.
