Floyd Landis is the worst kind of cheater: a rat who lied and solicited money from ordinary people to further his cheating. Shame on him.

SF Free Movies

I see a ton of free movies. Some of them are great (Dark Knight) others suck (Ghost of Girlfriends Past). Even with the bad movies you can't beat the price -- Free!

I saw an NBC11 news van outside our place yesterday. We'll share that story later!

Stars out at Haas Pavilion

The Cal Basketball season finale versus UCLA was bound to have a huge crowd because of ESPN's national coverage and the assignment of the College Gameday show at Haas Pavilion. Among the folks that we saw...

Gameday Staff:
Rece Davis - the host genuinely enjoyed the Haas crowd and was seen mingling with students after Gameday
Bobby Knight - 'the General' wore red (he loves to play the villian) and was "play-choking" one of his friends at halftime of the game (video to come)
Jay Bilas - the Dukie was very professional and gave high fives to the audience as he walked through the crowd
Digger Phelps - brought the house down during a commercial break when he danced with a pair of blonde Cal Dance team members. It must be nice to be the zany guy on the Gameday crew.
Hubert Davis - I wish he would show some of our players how to play in his smooth, in-control manner.
Erin Andrews - She spent most of the evening far from the student section but looked very cute in a dark suit. She gave the occassional wave to the fans.

Former Bears:
Anwar McQueen - he's been at several games this season and I hope he continues to be a fixture.
Kevin Johnson - the Mayor of Sacramento was courtside in a smart brown blazer. He was definitely into his date, Washington D.C. school superintendent Michelle Rhee. They exchanged a couple of (edited) of kisses and he was definitely sharing his basketball insights with her during the game. I'm glad that he's "dating" someone his own age.

Tracy Murray - this former UCLA sharpshooter was probably doing color for the UCLA radio broadcast. He looked like he could still drop 50 points on the Warriors. I think he made good investments, his suit and shoe game was still tight.
Jamaal Wilkes - the father of Jordan Wilkes (and UCLA alum) has been a mainstay of Cal Basketball games. Here's hoping we see him at Haas even after Jordan's graduation.
Here is some video from the game.
