hey kids... happy new year to everyone. my apologies for the lack of updates. guess i've been out and about having fun. hope this entry makes up for lost time...
today's wednesday but we're only a couple of days from the start of the nfl's second season, the playoffs. here's hoping that the 49ers beat the packers up in green bay. i'm not quite ready to stop watching football yet so i'm hoping that my niners can pull off the big win in wisconsin. last sunday was a glorious sports day for me. the niners crushed the saints, the raiders lost a heartbreaking loss and my cal bears hoops squad beat stanford for the first time in 5 years.
i've been following this cal this year with great ease because most of their games have been televised but it was a true pleasure to watch the stanford game in person. although the bears were not playing their best-- they had the fortitude to hang in the game and win it pulling away. i love teams that scrap... and more importantly-- teams that rebound. i attended the game with a bunch of friends and there was such a feeling of jubliation when we won that game. it may seem a bit silly but my friend cheryl and i ended up in the mob that stormed the field. (ok, for the sake of accuracy... our seats were up in the nosebleeds so we didn't technically storm the court. we sort of walked on during the madness.
i had a feeling that the bears would pull it out... i had a feeling that it would be a perfect sports day for me! =)
