I held out as long as I could but it is Big Game/Rivalry Week. I am reminded of my favorite Joyce Kilmer poem:

I THINK that I shall never see
A mascot as pathetic as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against his daddy’s trust’s flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And asks why oh why paper-maiche;

A tree that may in summer wear
A gob of sasoon in his hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who hides so quickly from the slightest rain.

Trees are made by fools like thee,
But only God can make OSKI.

We play Minnesota for the Paul Bunyan axe.

Winner keeps the axe on their campus.

We've held onto it for nine years.

In fact, no one currently playing for the Gophers has touched it.

We kind of like it that way.

Lemme know, jpa, if you'd like to borrow it. You know - their tree; our axe.

Our Axe is missing its handle since some enterpirsing Sons of California liberated it from the wrong side of the Bay a few decades ago:

No matter what happens on Saturday we will always have '82:

I didn't know you did impressions Jrazz.
You should have done the whole quote though, " They stole the Heisman from me. "(John Elway 11/20/1982 as quoted in the SF Chronical 11/21/1982)

Oh yeah, what about that collection of idiots you Furdians call a "band"? Really? $60+k a year and that's the best you can do?

You know it. You tell the story. You tell the whole darn world THIS IS BEAR TERRITORY.

(To all the kind folk I have met on SI, thank you for being there for me and helping me through some rough times. Apparently when a Furd fan gets upset, they can make a Mod call and get me dissapeared. )

Oh you sports fans.

This is pretty much my take on watching sports:

Carry on!

Nobody disappeared you, man.

Haa hum, Lyonesse.

They're talking about soccer, not REAL football.

Cal Bears suffer record-setting loss in 116th Big Game

I've found that typing while sobbing is really difficult.

Let's all give him some space to get though this most painful of times.

Congrats Ajsmom.

WH5, that game was sooooo last season. The only thing that matters is the upcoming season and next season we will be in the promised land on NYD.

For the record, we did set a record for most points allowed against the Golden Bears in a Big Game so that was impressive. And, if you look at the stats from yesterday, you will see that the Bears defense did not allow a single field goal yesterday.

Go Irish.

Ps. for Jrazz:

Since someone tried to hijack the basketball thread(Jrazz ), I think we should remember to all give a hearty "GO SPARTY!"
