Bob Huggins Isn't the Only One Experiencing Regret
God damn it! Cal was so close to beating Kansas State in Manhattan. And, had it not been for what seemed to me like extremely biased officiating, they would have. I'm so discouraged by the Bears' season. Maybe someone in the Athletic Department forgot to make a payment to the right people, because Cal is even getting shorted on fouls at home. If I had enough fingers to count the number of times one of Stanford's Lopez twins went over the back of a Bear to retrieve a rebound last Saturday, I'd be a centipede. I mean, they're extremely talented -- though not as talented as the non-Arizona Wildcats' sure-thing Michael Beasley -- but that doesn't mean they can make contact with the body on their way to another offensive board. Arggggghhhh! Tonight, of course, we're in Pullman, where the rebounds will come just as hard and without as much suspicious touching. I suppose I could always make wine from my crushed hopes.

It definitely begged to be said!

I don't know how they manage that trip in the snow, but they always seem to get there. Personally, I'd rather have the game postponed until the Bears learn to play better defense.

No, that's not a commentary on a certain subculture that was just making its presence felt in the Old Pueblo. . .

This is probably the least emotionally restrained entry of perhaps your entire blog. Italics? Exclamation points? Cursing? Sports brings out another side of you altogether. :-)

If only you knew. . .

My partner could tell you tales of woe related to my frustrated sporting passions that would make your hair curl.

Wait, your hair is already curly.

Something, then!

I was at the Zona game in Berkeley a couple of weeks ago. I didn't notice the officiating, but that may be a result of our seats in the last row (we couldn't see the seats directly across from us because of the rafters). Of course, I was rooting for the visitors, so that influences my opinion. The home crowd certainly had some gripes but that's to be expected. As for the game, the Wildcats couldn't guard Anderson, but he was the only one to get going for the Bears. CAL will certainly be seeking revenge in the dessert. But that seems like a long ways away considering the PAC-10 schedule this year. Case in point, Bayless and company have a big game against Mayo and USC tonight.

I'm jealous, even though they lost that game. I haven't been to Haas since moving to Arizona.

Cal played OK that game, but was weak down the stretch. That's what happens when your guard play is spotty and immature. It's amazing how polished Bayless is for a freshman. He's a keeper, even if he turns out to be a goner after this year.

Nice to hear from you, of course.
