Rivalry Week

This is rivalry week

In a battle of two of the most craptacular teams in college football, Washington State turned out to be less craptacular and beat Washington 16-13 in double overtime. Congrats Washington State, you stink just a little less than the worst team in football (okay maybe Wyoming is worse?)

In the battle that really matters to me, my Cal Bears beat the Stanford Jr. University Red Thingees 37-16. Go Bears!

All right, here we go with the kickoff. Harmon will probably try to squib it and he does. The ball comes loose and the Bears have to get out of bounds. Rodgers is along the sideline, another one (lateral)… they’re still in deep trouble at midfield, they tried to do a couple of (laterals)… the ball is still loose as they get it to Rodgers! They get it back now to the 30, they’re down to the 20… Oh, the band is out on the field!! He’s gonna go into the end zone! He’s gone into the end zone!!

Will it count? The Bears have scored, but the bands are out on the field! There were flags all over the place. Wait and see what happens–we don’t know who won the game. There are flags on the field. We have to see whether or not the flags are against Stanford or Cal. The Bears may have made some illegal laterals. It could be that it won’t count. The Bears, believe it or not, took it all the way into the end zone. If the penalty is against Stanford, California would win the game. If it is not, the game is over and Stanford has won.

We’ve heard no decision yet. Everybody is milling around on the FIELD–AND THE BEARS!! THE BEARS HAVE WON! The Bears have won! Oh, my God! The most amazing, sensational, dramatic, heart-rending… exciting, thrilling finish in the history of college football! California has won the Big Game over Stanford! Oh, excuse me for my voice, but I have never, never seen anything like it in the history of I have ever seen any game in my life! The Bears have won it! There will be no extra point!
