Me And The Tree

So, it seems that we at Bears Necessity have been a little dumbstruck by the loss to OSU.  Now that my five-day hangover has finally subsided, I’m in a mood to skip right ahead to this week’s Big Game.  Earlier this week CGB invited readers to share their fondest Big Game stories.  Mine begins way back in 1996, […]

Watching Cal-Arizona Online or At the Bars

Sorry I’m late with this guys, I was supposed to post it this morning and I didn’t notice until now that it apparently was posted for Sunday. That wouldn’t have been much help to anyone. Cal football meetups: View Larger Map Arizona football meetups (if you can’t get to the Cal football meetups): View Larger […]

Parting Shots

Before we head into the fearsome bye weekend (woohoo watch other teams win and loose!), just a few rejoinders: If you’ve been clicking on the permalinks to leave comments, you might have noticed the Project Michelle public service announcement at the bottom of each article. Although I wish it wouldn’t autoplay–I know some of you […]

What I Learned From The Bear Insider

There are so many things I learn from reading message boards. I get these deep, penetrating insights that I could never get from being in the locker room and can thus virtually coach the game based on what anonymous posters have discovered through the game. You just get the feeling that they should be watching […]

“We Are 4-1 And We Couldn’t Have Sucked More.”

These mumblings were recorded and parsed together of a slightly inebriated Cal fan. His ramblings below are to be considered the drunken incoherency of a derelict and not an accurate sample of the actual Golden Bear fanbase. I hope. WHAT IN JESUS CHRIST NATE LONGSHORE? What’s he doing in there? Might as well just leave […]

Watching Cal-Arizona State Online or In The Bars

Broadcast info here. So I found most of the possible locations for viewing Cal football and put them on the Google Map here for Bears fans, so I decided to do it for every Pac-10 team. Oregon, Oregon St., Washington, Wazzu, USC, UCLA, ASU, Arizona all are mapped out. Except for the ‘Furd, because everyone […]

Bars and Meetups for Watching Cal-Colorado State

For some real insight into this week’s Cal-Colorado State game, you’d better check out this live chat. Okanes has been fantastic this year. He’s made my job of non-reporting that much easier. As of now there are no known online streams of Cal-Colorado State. This will probably be like the Cal-Washington State game; you’ll have […]

What Is The Purpose of A College Coach?

Watching Marshawn Lynch piledrive his way into the end zone on Sunday against the Raiders yesterday, I can’t help but look back upon his exciting tenure at California. There were times when he looked unstoppable in open field, not even six feet of power driving past tacklers and defenders. I remember him against the Huskies, […]

DeSean Jackson Happy To Have People Underestimate Him

IRVING, TX–Philadelphia Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson seems to be taking his now infamous play in stride, forcing many NFL fans ponder deeply about the astounding individual talent from Cal. “He seems pretty casual about it. What a bonehead.” Said one NFL fan. And another. And another. Actually, it went like that through most of the […]

Who Had The Better Week 1, Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre?

You are likely to hear these two names mentioned in the same sentence a lot this season: Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre. There is really no way around it for Rodgers, the unproven new Packer starter, who is going to be under the public microscope for the entire season as his stat-lines are compared to […]
