But I don't think I'll put a Photo Essay together for this game. I took a lot of photos of the various events and kept constructing ideas in my head. Like when they had that goddamn stupid Odwalla race on the big screen (NO JOKE!). But I just don't feel like putting them all together. Monica's Dad (who I walked by and screamed MONICA'S DAD at several time without response, oddly) and Matt Chan have taken some great photos. Like this one here from Matt Chan:
But my focus for that game has shifted. I don't much wanna think about it anymore. Seeing that horrific accident occur directly in front of me sort of changed my priorities in life. Less about hating Stanford, more about hugging my wife. But the show must go on. So, here is today's DBD:
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - No. 4-ranked California women's tennis sophomore Jana Juricova became the first Golden Bear to win the ITA National Indoor Tennis Singles Championship as she defeated No. 8-ranked Irina Falconi of Georgia Tech, 6-4, 7-6(4), at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center on the campus of Yale University, Sunday, Nov. 8. Juricova was just the second player from Cal to advance to the title match and prevented Falconi from becoming the first woman since 1985 to capture both the singles title at the All-American Championship and the Indoor Championship.
Juricova didn't drop a set on her way to capturing her second national championship; her first as a singles player. She secured Cal's fifth singles national championship and pushed her record against Falconi to a perfect 3-0 mark. Raquel Kops-Jones won the 2003 ITA All-American crown, and Susie Babos won the 2006 and 2007 ITA All-American championship title in addition to the 2006 NCAA singles crown. Juricova is the defending NCAA doubles champion with junior Mari Andersson. She first took out Falconi at the ITA Team Indoor Championships in a 6-3, 7-5 win on Feb. 14 before defeating Falconi, 6-0, 6-4, in the NCAA team championship round of 16 on May 15.
