    Gotta hand it to Mike Bohn. He's making the most of this opportunity. Great move.

    Too bad Bohn didn't start the tour a couple of days earlier when the Rockies are still in town.

    FYI... The Brickyard is in San Francisco and the game is in Berkeley. The Brickyard is also not particularly close to BART, which is the way you would be getting to the game.

    I wish there was some place in Berkeley that CU fans could go that didn't want to pay the $40 fee for a piece of hot-dog and a coors lite, but I haven't heard of anything.

    When I used to have season tix for Cal games, I'd go to the Bear's Lair which is the on-campus bar. It was totally awesome, but I dunno what the reception would be if you showed up in the oponnents' gear. It'd probably be ok, but you never know. Maybe a bit like walking into the sink wearing Cal gear if the Sink was on campus...

    Well we are talking about Friday so this may still work out. As for game-day I would feel comfortable going into the Bear's Lair. I have seen tons of opposing fans go into The Sink before games and they might get some words, but not too much hostility. I doubt the Cal fans would be too brutal. We also might be with my friend who throws shotput and discus for Cal, so he can protect us.

    Daaah,
    I've heard that tailgating at Cal blows hard. Is this true? While I won't be there this year, I will make it out for future Pac 12 games.

    I dunno. I've never really seen the tailgate section and don't know where it is. I don't think they have any lots, but I could be wrong.

    That's what I was afraid of. How can you have a decent college game day experience without a tailgate party? It's like peanut butter without jelly.

    I know for a fact that Stanford has a huge tailgating area. I really hope we end up in the same division as Stanford.

    huh. imagine that.
    I am flying in a couple days before the game for other obligations and I will actually be in Sacramento on the 9th. I would imagine Mr. Bohn will be surprised to see me there...

    I'll be hitting up the happy hour too. The free one that is that starts at 7:30. It would be cool to meet some of you guys in person and party it up on Friday and Saturday before the game.
