It's time for another "Anything Goes" installment here on Gorillas Don't Blog. You just never know what you're going to see.

Today we are in the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, home of the 1932 Olympics (not to mention the 1984 games). This photo is from 1942, right in the depths of WWII. I am assuming that this is a combination of a half-time show (there's the USC band) and war bond drive. It's not often that you see a submarine in a football stadium! By gum, it's a captured Japanese "min sub". A different mini sub fired a torpedo at the USS West Virginia at Pearl Harbor.
