Dunphys at the Rose Bowl
If you love Modern Family as much as I do, you watched the season premier last night. Phil and Claire were going to sell the station wagon they drove to the Rose Bowl in, and began to reminisce about the good times of that trip. When asked by their son "what happened?" Phil stated the outcome of the game was "...we got pummeled by Penn State."
Well, I did a little research and apparently Phil and Claire Dunphy attended the Rose Bowl in 1995 (for the 1994 season) and if "WE" got pummeled by Penn State, that means THEY are Oregon fans...which is unfortunate.
Penn State is 1-2 all time in the Rose Bowl, and the only time they won was in the mid-90's. If in fact Angela Lansbury was the grand marshal in the Parade of Roses (as Phil stated), then "good times, she wrote" indeed.
