Go.............Bears?

Reader Leon Powe, who, indicidentally, is NOT the real Leon Powe, had an interesting comment in Friday's Daily Bear Dump.  He says:

I ran the Great Wall (Half) Marathon Today (yes, even on a bad knee and with my team in the playoffs) wearing a Cal hat. I got 7 "Go Bears!" from people over the run (and I gave one out).

What places have you been "Go Bears’ed!" thave are story worthy?

  • Singapore Changi Airport, I saw a guy wearing a Cal Rugby t-shirt – we exchanged Go Bears! travelling opposite ways on the travelator. Later saw the same guy in Little India two days later.
  • Summer Palace (Beijing) – Chinese New Year 1997 – was wearing a hat, there were only about 20 other tourists since it was about -8 Celcius. Got a Go Bears! from a guy who didn’t attend Cal, but lived in Albany
  • Bangkok Sky Train – earlier this year. Just randomly saw two Cal students, I was again wearing a hat.
  • This sparks the discussion of "Where is the craziest place you've ever been Go Bears'd?"  "What kind of really random Cal experiences have you had all over the globe?"  Photos of people in Cal gear in exotic locales helpful, of course.

    For me, I've never had anybody come up to me and Go Bears me in some random place.  But, on a recent trip abroad, I did run into this monstrosity:
