I had the great pleasure today of attending the 117th renewal of the Big Game between Cal and St*nf*rd. In an upset and a thrilling contest the underdog Golden Bears triumphed, 34-28. Most importantly this was a victory for the forces of good in our universe.
Shout outs to my former student and Cal senior linebacker Eddie Young and great Cal fans such as Kevin Lindsey, Tim Moellering, Carol Olsen, Gary Fowler and the Bear Claw guy, to name but a few. Thanks as always to late mother Gertrude who took me to my first Big Game many years ago.
The St*f*rd Axe, a perpetual trophy that goes to the winner of the Big Game, remains in Berkeley. Go Bears!
