At This Rate, Baron Davis Will be Our Next Governor

[youtube eqQiu4J1sms] Baron Davis love has become contagious at this point in Northern California, but we can’t wrap up our posting today without showing you this lovely video of him taking a day to work at a local McDonalds, a la Mark Cuban at Dairy Queen. By the end of this video and certainly by […]

The French Care Only if They Pronounce The Words Properly, Telebears XV–Linguistics

The best way to start off the week is with a major no one ever thinks about when they enter college. Which is kinda sad, because we can’t imagine a cooler major to take for fun. Learn about random languages, phonetics, metaphor, imagery. It’s sort of like English, except less essays. Oh yeah, and you’ll […]

Falling In Love All Over Again

(Special from your editor’s sports journal, Get Up Eight Times. This was written after Game 4.) You know, it seems at every point in my life, a basketball team comes along at just the right time to rein me back into the NBA. In the American sports climate, basketball continues its steady decline into the […]

Unluckiest Pass in the World

We wonder why God seems to outright despise the MacArthur Maze. 18 years after heavy seismic retrofits from Loma Prieta, his Almighty decides that outright tanker fire is what’s needed to do the job. Huge leaping flames from an exploding gasoline tanker melted the steel underbelly of a highway overpass in the East Bay’s MacArthur […]

The Waitlists! They are Broken!

Just in case you’re uber-stressed about having to get into your Chem 3A 5 PM Lab, and you’re about, well, congrats chaps, your more fortunate friends are going to have to do it all over again! As far as we can tell, Telebears has crashed the classes you couldn’t get into. Cal Patriot and the […]

He Isn’t Exactly the Minister of Defense

It’s a late pick and probably the last Bear going to the pros in this draft (only Tim Mixon is left), but hey, we’ll take what we can get–Cal rarely gets this many people out in one year. With the 192nd pick overall in the 6th round, Ted Thompson grabbed Cal linebacker Desmond Bishop.  He […]

The Bears Are Whimpering

Well, we promised you a draft update when a Bear got drafted…and, about eight hours later, we deliver. Two more Bears are heading to the next level, one overvalued, one seemingly undervalued. With the 85th pick in the third round, the Seattle Seahawks select Cal defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (6’1”, 305 pounds). Filling a desperate […]

Marshawn Lynch, Circling the Wagons With His Pimped Out Cart

In our excitement over the Warriors, we completely forgot that Golden Bears are going pro today. So imagine our delight when we opened up ESPN and saw where Money Lynch was going. Man, this weekend keeps on getting better and better. With the Sabres a Stanley Cup favorite, perhaps God is turning his eye to […]

The Way of A Warrior

We try to avoid hyperbole around these parts, but man, last night’s game was incredible. Even sitting in the back back row of the arena, the excitement in the stadium is too difficult to describe. We wish we could send you that picture of the Indian dude Bhangra-ing up in the 4th row, but I […]

This Could Be A Very Painful or Unbelievable or Painfully Unbelievable 48 Minutes

We’re skipping Telebears today (seriously, who does their schedule on Friday night? Go outside!), so normally I’d fill the dead air time with something like hamster eating broccoli and wiggling uncontrollably. But your esteemed editor is going to Game 3 of Mavs-Warriors tonight. I haven’t been to a basketball game in 12 years (it was […]
