Rose Bowl: Party on the Pier

Faleolo Toia of Los Angeles sell Wisconsin themed leis at Party on the Pier, which celebrated the Wisconsin Badgers playing in the Rose Bowl, at the Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, Calif., Thursday afternoon, Dec. 30, 2010.

A passerby's message, "Go Bucky," was written in the sand at the Santa Monica beach before the start of Party on the Pier.

While posing for a personal picture before the Party, Bucky pretends to get arrested by Santa Monica police officer Dave Rynski, who is formerly of Minoqua, Wis.
