DBD 6.2.08 Yay for Women!

I'm probably not alone in loving women.  And Cal!  And the sport of crew. 

So, when all my loves come together, it can be very special.  And that happened just this weekend when the Cal women's crew team competed at Nationals over by Sacto.  They got 3rd!

They were favored apparently to win it all, so some have suggested this is a slightly disappointing finish.  I don't particularly like to look at it that way.  3rd place in the nation, no matter how you cut it is an amazing feat.  The crew team, like all sports, work incredibly hard, and should be very happy with their accomplishment. 

At the Cal Coaches Tour, Sandy Barbour said any time Cal goes for a National Championship, she is there in person, rooting us on.  Whether its football, tennis, or crew.  So, in my book, if Sandy is there in person, we've already won! 

And if/when we go up for the National Championship in blogging, she best be there too!  The final standings for Crew are below at the bottom of this post.

Here's another link:  Ted Kennedy is going to undergo brain surgery.  No matter your politics, this is obviously a serious event and hopefully it will all go fine. 

I'd like to give you an update on the Marshawn situation, but I cant seem to find any.  Over at Buffalo Rumblings, they don't seem to have any new information.  Hopefully, once any news hits, we'll have it here.  

Finally, my ten year high school reunion is coming up soon.  I'm not sure I'm gonna go.  Aren't those things just giant bragfests?  "My job is better than yours!"  "My shlang is bigger than yours!"  I don't need to get involved in that (esp. with my terrible job and woefully inadequate shlang).  My new plan is to go as an incredibly unsuccessful person.  I won't shower for a week ahead of time, maybe grow out the beard.  Try to look like this:

"Yeah, ok so you are a neurosurgeon with a hot wife, well *I* live in a dumpster behind a Carl's Jr.!"

This plan can't fail!
