A Cal Fan's Notes/Life In Section CC - 12-19-2012, 10:11 PM

We are invited to meet Coach Sonny Dykes tomorrow night. We are energized and full of hopeful anticipation.

I offer this up as a "hint" of what makes Cal fans different, and what any new coach might want to keep in mind when trying to understand what makes (some of us) tick

Will Do. And I hear he's been to the Napa Valley, so I think I'll bring him some Cab for good luck. Merry Christmas and GB, J

"Under the benches is the world’s longest slide--designed that garbage, bottles, cans, bag lunches et all, can be dropped from one’s hand, and then slide some fifty rows down where a wire screen catches the debris and holds it for the garbage man’s pick up after the game."




second, to the laundry chutes, perhaps

Too funny. - 12-22-2012, 05:19 PM

yes, we used to slide down those as well. Tales of a misspent youth. Did meet Coach Dykes on Thursday. Too impressive for words. His entire staff addressed a group of Alumni football players (of which, I was no doubt the worst) and he wowwed us all. GB, J

In my ignorance Cal will be fun again. After having met Coach dykes, I can guarantee you Cal football will be fun again. We may win lots of games, or we may not. I have no clue. But I promise you we will be fun to watch and we will never again play "small" against Stanfod State
