The Rose Bowl stadium is a national historic landmark, an 80-year-old structure that boasts a rich and colorful past. It also is a stadium with a future, though it remains to be seen whether it will be as rosy as its name or as rocky as the nearby San Gabriel Mountains that rise above it. "If we sit on our laurels, we're asking for it," said Darryl Dunn, general manager of the Rose Bowl. "We need to find ways to invest in the facility.

The Rose Bowl game is 100 years old, but the stadium - - or at least part of it - - is new. The city of Pasadena has invested more than $140 million to modernize the iconic Rose Bowl stadium. During the last two years, the stadium has been upgraded with a new video board, restorations to the south and east scoreboards, 10 LED panels and clocks, new aisles and handrails, expanded tunnels, improved bathrooms and a new broadcast building. The electrical and plumbing systems have also been upgraded, as have the locker rooms.

The City Council this week agreed to allow a motocross event at the Rose Bowl despite neighbors' protests that previous rallies have been among the noisiest events there. Council members approved the World Supercross Series event on a 6-2 vote, with council members Steve Madison and Joyce Streator, whose districts surround the bowl, dissenting. The supercross, an event in which dozens of the world's top riders race over a course of dirt mounds, will be held Nov. 20.

Ongoing stadium renovations won't affect the 90,000-plus fans expected to attend the 2012 Rose Bowl game between the Oregon Ducks and Wisconsin Badgers, Rose Bowl officials said this week. The stadium is undergoing a five-year, $160-million renovation that includes adding luxury seats and a new press box to the 89-year-old facility. Construction on a new video board on the north side of the stadium is complete, and four tunnels on the south of the stadium have doubled in width.

You're one of those sports humbugs who always thought that football was garbage, and, by extrapolation, that the Super Bowl was the trashiest spectacle of the year. Well, you could be right.

Pasadena's 73-year-old granddaddy of stadiums, host to more Super Bowls than anywhere else, needs a minimum $40-million overhaul just to stay in the game. UCLA, whose lease expires in 1996, has already begun making ominous noises about the outmoded, deteriorated condition of the Rose Bowl, lobbying for theater-style seats, more restrooms, a giant video scoreboard and replacements for the dark, uninviting tunnel entryways.

Isaac Richard berated his Pasadena City Council colleagues Tuesday after they gave final approval to the reconfiguration of the board that governs the Rose Bowl stadium. In the opening minutes of Tuesday's regular meeting, the council voted to change the way members of the Rose Bowl Operating Co. Board are selected and to allow the new nine-member panel to set policy, rather than simply advise the council on the city-owned stadium. Richard was absent when the council voted.

Outlined against the "rock-ribbed ledges" of the Arroyo Seco and "the broad sweep of a mild sun," the Four Horsemen rode one last time in the Rose Bowl of Jan. 1, 1925. Notre Dame arrived Dec. 31, only one day in advance of its 27-10 victory over Stanford. The game punctuated a 10-0 season, a first consensus national title, coaching immortality for Knute Rockne and Notre Dame's embryonic status as America's Team.

For many years, Southern California was home to annual outdoor celebrations of the Roman Catholic rosary and the Virgin Mary, events that drew thousands at a time to the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Dodger Stadium. The devotional service, known as Mary's Hour, began at the Bowl in 1948 and drew its largest audience, about 100,000, to the Coliseum in 1954.

A concours d'elegance is the sort of car show you'd expect F. Scott Fitzgerald to host -- world-class cars displayed on carpet-like lawns. Each year, there seem to be more of these elegant affairs, from Miami to Pebble Beach. Such shows have ringed L.A. for years. Now one is coming to the heart of the area. On Sunday, the Rose Bowl will host its inaugural Concours d'Elegance, featuring 300 vehicles -- American classics, European exotics and five classes of Ferraris.

The City Council will let voters decide whether to offer the National Football League a long-term lease to play at the Rose Bowl. The council split on the lease offer, but voted unanimously Monday to put the proposed measure on the November ballot. If approved, the city would offer the NFL a 25-year lease in exchange for a $500-million stadium renovation, $500,000 a year in rent and other considerations.

NFL owners might hear a presentation from Rose Bowl officials next month, along with stadium presentations from Coliseum and Anaheim groups. "We're still evaluating the implications of a possible Pasadena referendum and how it would impact the presentations," said Neil Glat, the league executive overseeing the negotiations to return the NFL to the Los Angeles area.
