The days leading up to Pasadena's 2015 Rose Bowl football game between the Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles is predictably a time of focus, preparation and tradition. Luckily the kids at Children's Hospital Los Angeles got to be part of that.

In the midst of what undoubtedly is the most important time of their football season, the University of Oregon football team included a visit to CHLA into their bustling schedule as they did during their last visit to Los Angeles. Although the Oregon Ducks aren't exactly our home team, the players received a warm welcome from CHLA patients and their families. However, it was a pep talk from patient Brandon that stole the show.
