Ask the Readers: Call for Cal Writers

I’ve been putting it off long enough, and now with the new site design going in and Cal sports reaching a lull, it’s a good time to look for new writers. Writing seven times a week seems great, but the rest of my life has suffered because of this site. Eventually I’ll crash and burn, […]

Oh Yeah, I Won

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, I refer you to the Play in CA’s bold declaration. I treaded last place throughout the entire contest, but Kansas and Memphis pulled through for me, saved us from a Hansborough-Love slobberfest, and catapulted my bracket into an impregnable first.

The Bear is Hunting

At the moment I’m undergoing some site design renovations–it’s the dead of offseason, and nothing will be happening that’s noteworthy for the next few months, so it’s the perfect time to get technical issues sorted out.

Best of BN, 2007

I’m feeling terrible AGAIN. I’ve waken up the last five days and had no desire to write at all. So while I recover, I’ll be sporadic in posting habits until recovery comes, which might be tomorrow, two weeks, never. So for now, a la Golden Blogs, classic posts for you to read! (And by classic, […]

We All Need to Smile A Little

What’s the cutest opponent to lose to? Vote in the sidebar. Beaver? [youtube cKTx8vbzP14] Baby bears? [youtube vf_PZnlg-1U] Or the closest thing I could find to a sun devil, the kangaroo rat? [youtube cXZpqwIDX4k]

Strictly Bear Territory

This is pretty much a ‘duh’ announcement for almost anyone who’s been reading this blog for the past few weeks, but barring a catastrophic collapse to what is looking like a historical season, the focus of this site will shift primarily to Cal football for the rest of this fall, with perhaps a few posts […]
