I will not, unfortunately, be going on the Bruins Nation podcast this week. They were so kind as to invite us to appear on their weekly podcast. Just last week, they invited Madame Speaker JTLight. It sounded like fun time was had by all. So, I was ready to go. I started writing a bunch of material, too. This was high quality stuff. Like this one bit about how men always leave the toilet seat up. And another how my wife's slightly differing views on the nature of marriage are unimaginably controlling. GOLD, JERRY! GOLD!
Excited, I even wrote this incredibly accurate email to them:
Hello, this is Twist. Ragnarok and I will be more than happy to join you guys.
And I know what all y'all are thinking here. Ragnarok is a no-talent hack who seems unwilling or unable to manage himself in a professional manner. You fear that Ragnarok is going to ruin everything with a series of inane non-sequitirs that do little more than lower the dignity of all involved. But don't worry. I've discussed it with Ragnarok and he's not going to do or say anything that would insult UCLA or Bruins Nation in any way.
PS Between you and me, Ragnarok is a no-talent hack who seems unwilling or unable to manage himself in a professional manner.
But they said, for time concerns, it would be helpful to have only one person from CGB. And, after a bitter, bitter, bitter private debate, Ragnarok emerged victorious. People believe that he will apparently "manage himself in a professional manner" And not "ruin everything with a series of inane non-sequitirs that do little more than the lower the dignity of all involved." And be "much more attractive facially than you, TwistNHook."
GUILTY AS CHARGED, DAMMIT!
So, yes, I won't be appearing on the BN Podcast tomorrow. Instead, it will be Ragnarok providing in depth analysis on everything Cal-UCLA. It starts at 6 PM PST Wedned, Oct 14. I am not entirely sure how to listen, there is prolly a link at BN. When I know more, Ill tell more. GO BEARS!
BERKELEY - California men's basketball coach Mike Montgomery will be a guest on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's Chronicle Live program on Tuesday, October 13. Montgomery will sit down with host Greg Papa to discuss the 2009-10 season. The show airs from 5-6 p.m. and will be rebroadcast from 11 p.m.-midnight.
In one season at the helm, Montgomery helped the Golden Bears earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006 and a Top-25 ranking (No. 22) for the first time since 2003. He took a team that was projected to finish eighth in the Pac-10 preseason poll last year and led them to a tie for third place. Montgomery's career record is 569-255 (.691), a mark that places him 10th in victories among active coaches at the Division I level.
Cal has earned some high preseason rankings thus far - No. 14 Athlon Sports, No. 16 The Sporting News and ESPN The Magazine, and No. 20 CBSSports.
Your first chance to catch the Bears in action will on Thursday, Nov. 5, when the Bears welcome Chico State for an exhibition game at 7:30 p.m. at Haas Pavilion. The season opener is slated for Monday, Nov. 9, vs. Murray State at 8 p.m. at Haas. For tickets, please click here.
