Cal Fan Appreciation Day!

Since marketman already has a few photos with Cal headcoach Jeff
Tedford, we decided it was mieko14's turn!


It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Late-August/Early-September rolls around and you would think everyday was Christmas in the Myers-Nakamura-Yoo world. But replace red and green and tinsel with blue and gold and pom poms. In 10 days Cal kicks off against Maryland in Berkeley, but Saturday is Cal Fan Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium, and being the really cool cats (translation: big football dorks) that we are, we'll be there. Oh no, we're not even planning our first tailgate yet - first thing's first. Tonight I began the process of unearthing our fan gear in preparation:

If you are paying close attention, you'll spot a few familiar items: marketman's Jeff Tedford bobblehead, his very school spirited Cal razor courtesy of Angelica (I have a strong inkling this one won't make it through stadium security) and one very irked dog.


marketman sacked!

OK, I admit that title is misleading. While our hero's employment status is mercifully intact, I decided to test out a video post and thought I would share this fine example of athletic achievement. One sunny day back in June, marketman attended a one-day camp run by the coaching staff of the Cal football team and volunteered to train in the QB spot. What you witness here is technically not a sack - our QB completes the handoff to his eager RB...who then freaks out at the sight of the oncoming defensive line and pitches it back to his QB to take the fall. Thankfully, this year's camp didn't come to an abrupt halt due to a pulled hammy like last year!


That's Nuts

On Saturday, we had the pleasure of attending the Emerald Bowl to watch our Golden Bears play the Miami Hurricanes.  I say that like there was a choice.  While the family decree was unspoken, said decree mandated the attendance of all members of the Myers-Yoo households, lest we be named dissenters and banished forthwith from the clan.  At any rate, it was fun, as we watched the Bears eke out a 24-17 victory over the Canes.  Two things I learned:

The Emerald Bowl was named after its sponsor, Emerald Nuts.  Thankfully, it didn't assume the full name of the sponsor because "The Emerald Nut Bowl" evokes images of a bunch of crazies running around on the field or a brilliant green bowl intended to hold nuts, neither of which are typically what you're after in football.  However, they still represented in full nutty fashion by dressing up some poor souls as a cashew and a can of Emerald Nuts and setting them loose on the field.

Speaking of mascots: Granted that Cal has chosen not a ferocious bear to represent its sports teams but a cute, cuddly, sweater-sporting guy named Oski, but the Miami Hurricanes' mascot isn't even in the ballpark.  They have some sort of bird which I'm told is a pelican but which looks to me like a crane, which caused great confusion when their fans started cheering for the "Canes" - cranes?  I thought you said you were some sort of weather pattern?
