Cal Women's Basketball v. Stanford Open Thread

What an unbelievable afternoon!  The unexpected twists and turns.  The thought that we were down and out, but then the BIG comeback!  And finding love in a most unexpected place. 

Oh wait, did you think I was talking about Cal's comeback victory over Stanford today in the men's game?  No, no, no, I was talking about the world's worst movie ever, Shopaholic.  But hey, at least it was better than the first half of the game.  *sobs gently*

Well, even after that great afternoon of Cal basketball slash horrific afternon of brutal romantic comedies, did you think you were done for the day?  Did you think your iron-clad contractual responsibilities as a Cal fan were over and you could go out and enjoy Valentine's Day with your significant other?

Well, you better tell that significant other to put those tickets to Shopaholic away (seriously....), because we got MORE basketball!  Or, in my case, basketball!

Here is the official story with information on the broadcast. 

Saturday, Feb. 14, 8:00 p.m.: No. 3 Cal at No. 6/5 Stanford, Palo Alto, Calif. (Radio: KALX 90.7-FM, TV: FSN)

They list the TV as FSN, which doesn't technically exist anymore.  A review of Comcast Sports Net Bay Area shows that it will be on that channel.  Essentially, the same thing, but I wanted to just be clear.  I am never all that good with all the linkage to stream, so if it is being streamed, check the comments for information.  We'll try to add it here, also.

From the official story, we get more information on the force of nature that is Ashley Walker.
