Weekend DBD: Golden Bear Pros

Because news doesn't stop for the weekend. here's a place to dump everything non-game related for the week.

Rod Benson has an awesome new article up:

When we had our first practice of the season, Coach Braun announced the 'Blue Squad' (the first team), and the 'Gold Squad' (second and third team). He then, in an unprecedented move, announced another team, which was handed a set of thin mesh, black, football looking jerseys. I was on that last team. Out of 17 guys (including walk-ons), I might have been number 17. My teammate David Paris, asked me why they "gave us these grimy jerseys."

Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves, we took it as a mission to prove every day that we belonged on the blue team. Since they gave us grimy jerseys, I wrote "GRIMY" on the side of my shoe is huge letters so that I would be reminded that when practice started, it was time to get grimy.

The 'Grimy' team KILLED the first team every day in practice. We talked trash, we played hard, we would even say things like "give us our minutes!" after a big play. It was crazy, but it worked. We motivated ourselves and got better. Still, we didn’t play. I started writing GRIMY on my shoes (I wore the same pair all year) each time I didn’t play.

This is probably a good place to cover Bears in the NFL on Sunday. dancing Aaron Rodgers (just click to figure out what that's about) v. Peyton Manning, LT vs Marshawn, DeSean vs BYE,Tony Gonzalez vs. inner angst, perhaps even a Forsett cameo on Sunday Night (Seahawks are in bad shape, they might need his services).

Dump whatever.
