Bruins show up but can’t pull off a win

bruin bear_100309In the years since moving back to the Bay Area after a stint in Southern California, the female DG has made a semi-annual visit to Stanford Stadium (a jewel since its remodel!) to watch “her” UCLA Bruins play the Stanford Cardinal. So this Saturday in October was no different.  Given continued gimpyness, she used a different game plan, arriving well after kick off to avoid the jostle of crowds and leaving before game’s end (which served to avoid the celebrating folks in red). The female DG has been going to football games at Stanford since she was a “Little Indian” (a fact that instantly dates her), but she didn’t really get into college football until her UCLA years when she had an opportunity to learn more about the game from a team of experts. That those years were also decades ago is a harsh reality (but really good memories endure).
