Photo Essay I

Photos from Monica's Dad Photostream and from friend of the blog Matt Chan.  Thanks to them for great photography at the game! 

We start up with the beginning of the game, which was all-Cal all the time.  And a whole lot of this:

Of course, when you factor in people like this:

With people like this:

You get optimum results such as this:

And, of course, when you get a lot of that, you get a lot of this:

That wasn't the only Cal success early.  We had Jeremy Ross, killing it:

And on D, we were pretty stout:

Which led to this:

Some more shots of Best killing it:

We even did more WildBear formation:

Marvin Jones is a really good downfield blocker:

The Souffle was getting some great action:

Note from Monica's Dad: This was a fake handoff that Riley ended up throwing deep, but looking at the pics, it's clear Vereen could have run for a big gainer, too. The WSU D wasn't geared to stop the run or the pass.

That damnable red crane was still there, mocking up with its inevitable redness:

TAKE OFF THAT RED PAINT!  TAKE OFF THAT RED PAINT!

For those who were concerned as to whether the student section filled up, here is an answer:

Ok, firstly, there was a painfully large amount of media time outs. WTF!??!  What media??????????  Ai!  And they STILL barely let the Cal band play.  Instead we were subjected to like 10 minutes of Simon Says in the end zone.  NO JOKE!  They did Simon Said.

It took forever.  I started booing.  I mean c'mon!  What purpose does that serve?  

 

Of course, we got to learn more about Bryan Anger.  Like he could use a good Ambulance Chasing Attorney.

He couldn't even get attacked by a real mean dog, either.  A dalmation?  Up next, a chihuahua takes a bite out of Alualu.

Plus, he showed his TD dance, which consisted of a reverse jam:

And, thus, we were good on that whole first half.  And what a first half.  Although Cal had given up many yards, we were up 35-17 and had had some amazing plays.  The offense was working on all cylinders and Jahvid was in Best-mode.  Riley looked great and even our special teams had its moments.  Then, off to the second half!  GO BEARS!
