DBD 12.11.09 Keep our A's in Oakland

A lot of big stories this morning...while I'm waiting to ensure the baby's asleep before returning to my slumber I thought I'd throw up a DBD (it's 2:08 AM).  All links links SF Gate, SFW, and should open in a new window unless otherwise noted.  Cal-themed stories are in blockquotes.

65 people arrested in wheeler hall protest.  Yawn.

Bart OK's people mover to Oakland Airport.

Epic meteor shower expected Sun night.

Bay Bridge lane closures to begin tonight.

Is he Irish enough?  Notre Dame picks the 'natti's Brian Kelly to take over.  I have watched 0 snaps of 'natti football so I have no idea if this is a good move.  While I hate Notre Dame, I think that means I really like them.  I love Notre Dame stadium, their unis, their non-conferenceness, and their history.

Just when you think the Pirates couldn't fuck up some more: Bobby Crosby signed a one year, $1 million contract to play for the Pirates. 

Bruce Jenkins needs to retire.

Stanfurd hires Harbaugh's dad to be RB coach.

Clint Eastwood, who's directed Invictus starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, utilized noneother than Jack Clark (calbears.com) to help make the rugby authentic in the movie.  I'm willing to pay the sitter for this one.

Finally, in huge news the City of Oakland (Caution: Carolyn Jones story) has listed three potential waterfront-ish sites for a new A's ballpark.

"We're willing to fight to keep our A's in this city," said city Councilman Larry Reid. A's owner "Lew Wolff said there's no viable stadium sites in Oakland. Well, we've proven him wrong."

I hope to Bak Bak this goes through.

 

Mayor Ron Dellums said Oakland offers the A's economic vitality, a solid fan base and great baseball tradition.

"Oakland and baseball are synonymous," he said. "If baseball is a game of the people, then what better place than this magnificent city that has embraced everyday people from all over the world?"

Well said, Mayor Dellums, well said.  Now don't fuck this up and pay your damn taxes.

I'll get the rest of the News & World report as well as the official calbears.com stories at a more reasonable hour.
