Berkeley Daily Planet is as confused as we are regarding the 20 day delay. But if Charles Olson says it, it seems like it'd exist:
The injunction preventing UC Berkeley from cutting down the Memorial Stadium oak grove to build an athletic training facility, set to expire Tuesday, could be extended for 20 days, following a notice of appeal filed Thursday by the California Oaks Foundation and the Panoramic Hill Association, according to UC’s press-spokesperson Dan Mogulof. Plaintiffs’ attorney Stephan Volker was not available for comment to confirm Mogulof’s opinion, but on Friday Volker’s office filed a petition asking the California appeals court for an immediate stay of project implementation until the appeal could be heard.
Well, this is grand news. The Olympic coach for the US Crew Team has agreed to become the Cal coach. Sounds like we have one of the finest coaches ready to come on board:
BERKELEY - Mike Teti, head coach of the 2008 U.S. men's Olympic rowing team, has agreed to become head coach of men's crew at the University of California, Golden Bears Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour announced today.
Teti will continue to fulfill his obligations with the Olympic team through the Beijing Games and will officially start at Cal on September 1, 2008. He replaces Steve Gladstone, who accepted a position with the California Rowing Club earlier this summer. With the hiring of Teti as the Bear's men's crew coach, the number of Cal affiliated athletes and coaches who will be participating in the Beijing Olympics has increased to 45.
Marshawn is rebuilding his reputation in Buffalo. This paragraph makes me wonder why he seemed so sullen at the autograph signing I attended:
For a good 20 minutes following the first practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College on Friday, Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch stood and signed autographs. T-shirts, camp programs, helmets, scraps of paper ... it didn't matter what was thrust in front of him.
He signed and signed and signed and did so with a smile glued to his face, a 22-year-old football hero on top of the world.
Is it too early to call Ryan Anderson a bust? We'll have to let the historians decide that question.
Nets first-round pick Ryan Anderson had real trouble shooting the ball in the Rocky Mountain Revue summer league, leading some to wonder how ready he actually is for the NBA, according to ESPN.com. Our View: Anderson shot an awful 23.7% from the field, and his struggles, coupled with fellow Nets first-rounder Brook Lopez's lack of effort in the league make this a week to forget in Jersey.
Ok. Dump Away! Go Bears!
