And here's a sweet article on Aaron Rodgers over at the Chron.
"Why is my one leg so much hairier than the other????"

"No. 4, he's not here, but his spirit is here," Driver said. "Nothing's changing, we're not going to do anything different than what we would do if Brett was here.

Here's another link on baseball. We'll have more coverage today of the upcoming game against USD.
Finally, the Cal women's basketball team has been in Africa, hopefully bonding as a team and learning more about the heritage of one of its players. This seems like a uniquely Berkeley experience. There is an interesting bent to this trip as the coach seems to be starting the process for adoption.
The Bears will make a stop at a Senegalese orphanage where Boyle will take the initial steps in the process of adopting a child....Boyle's personal mission has turned into a big part of the trip. She said she has been thinking about adoption for several years and had always been leaning toward finding a child from Africa or Eastern Europe.
