    Dress warm Bob??? (You no doubt wrote this yesterday when it was raining ) Today is here, I live about 2 miles South of the stadium and am staring at clear blue skies and bright sun. My advice is layers down to a T-shirt if you are on the sunny side of the stadium, and a sweatshirt or fleece if you are in the shade. Actually, you can probably wear shorts today too

    Oh, and my money is on Cal, but it should be a very close game --- maybe 3 points. (He now ducks and runs.)

    The shade side of the stadium gets pretty brisk, especially after the sun goes down. I'm bringing a bunch of layers and a flask. It's going to be a great day for Stanford football - it's amazing that the Cardinal somehow snuck 1,500 pounds of quality blockers through the admissions office.

    Either way Andy, let's hope it goes better than the Harvard-Yale game is going right now...

    (Andy and I are on the opposite sides of this one too folks! )

    will be running around on the field with cameras hanging off me, should keep warm. just hope the ground dries a bit today or its ski pants. having two degrees from cal, i could be biased but will put my editorial hat on and try to be open minded(right!). btw, i love doing these games-i can walk to the stadium from my house. jack, hope your kid is enjoying harvard and you are enjoying the tuition bills!! (been there)

    I have no rooting interest in the Harvard-Yale game. I'm pretty sure they both walloped Dartmouth this year (although the Big Green did win a couple of games this season, a marked improvement from last year's dismal campaign.)

    I'm looking at the Stanford/Sharks parlay today...

    Wow, Harvard pulled it out in the last few minutes -- totally unexpected!

    And it ended almost exactly like the Harvard Yale game...

    Great Big Game - sadly, the better team won. And Dartmouth lost to Princeton (which gets me abuse from wife and daughter). At least the Sharks came through...

    fun game for cal fans, i totally lost track of the score, but had a great take and managed to get about 60 images up right away. little scary when the cal fans over ran the field, just stepped in a police circle until most of the crazies passed, then went out and started shooting again. certainly cal didn't think they would pull it off.

    stanford has the team from south bend coming in next, but not much interest in that game at this point...

    next event is sharks/blackhawks on wed.

    ivy league football is 'interesting'. my kid roomed with some of the players on columbia's team and they were pretty small dudes. but columbia's football team probably wouldn't do to well in the high school league out here. good sat scores though.

    Any comments on the chances of Toby Gerhart winning the Heisman?

    I think he has a solid shot at it.

    Did you notice the shot of day? CAL quarterback head in hands sitting on the edge of the road with the Harvard fans celebrating in the background. Similar to the famous Y A Tittle image from Giants Stadium. Moment carried the photograph and it was picked up by most of the papers .

    Yea except Y.A. had blood running down his bald head and looked like a warrior returning from battle. What an image that was!
