I've been reading the sports section with dread lately. The Giants are as awful as my friend Steven suggested they might be. And there has been bad news for the men's college basketball team at my alma mater. But, contrary to what I'd read this morning, it appears that Cal's DeVon Hardin will return to school for his senior season, giving me hope in the face of fannish adversity. The next step is for the football team to avenge last year's loss to Tennessee. Also, a little payback for the Wildcats would be nice.
