DBD 7/02/09: Beers, Bears, and Beards!

 

As you all know, tomorrow begins a long weekend. Three days to sleep in, catch up on work, or if you're Rishi, to go to yuppie bars in the City and futilely buy lemon drops for girls who look like Frieda Pinto.

But before we start celebrating our nation's history, I thought we should take a moment to thank the man who made it all possible: John Sherman.

On this day, in 1890, the United States Senate passed the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Let's be honest, there wasn't a whole lot else going on in 1890.

With the passage of this act, Sherman single-handedly saved American democracy.

Also, John Sherman had an awesome beard. Here are some pictures of other people with beards:

Moses!

These four have kindly agreed to take part in today's DBD roundtable on an important topic: Cal's 2009 trap game. This may or may not be a patently transparent attempt on my part to pretend this DBD has actual content.

However, before we get to today's topic of discussion, an important interlude: it is customary on the 4th of July to express one's appreciation of freedom by drinking copious amounts of beer. We asked each of our round-tablers what their brew of choice will be this weekend:

 

Moses?

"I would have to say Maccabee: the beer the chosen people drink."

What about you, Aaron Rodgers?

"I spend a lot of time in Wisconsin now, so...PBR! WOOOOO!!!!!"

"Old Rasputin, of course!

...OK, maybe we should move on to our roundtable question.

 

It seems like every year, Cal has a trap game - one which ends up proving much more difficult than originally thought. Last year, it was Arizona. The year before, Oregon State. In 2006 also, Arizona was the culprit.

 

What will Cal's trap game be this year?

 

"While it's hard to take a team called the Golden Gophers seriously, it is important to remember that the wastes of Minnesota are cold. Cold like the heart of CBKWit. Be on guard against them."

 "Much like I wandered the desert for 40 years, Cal has wandered the state of Arizona for the last...um...5 years, losing each game there since 2004, and each game at Tempe since 2003. However, Cal shall defeat each of these teams this year. Of course, it would be easier if that dreamy Nate Longshore were still starting for Cal. What a stud muffin."

 

 

"Terrapins? You kidding me? I leave for a few years and you guys start losing to teams named after undersized turtles? This game isn't starting at 9am, we'll be fine."

 

 

 

"WRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"

 "It is important also for the Bears not to underestimate Stanford. I have it on divine authority that their new coach has an enthusiasm unknown to mankind, and is really good at recruiting tight ends. Speaking of tight ends, I wonder which NFL team Longshore will end up with?"

 

"Dude, that's kind of weird. Anyway, while the Oregon State game is always hard to predict, I think that all their turnover from last year has weakened them. I'm kind of worried about the UCLA game, although I couldn't tell you why."

 

"Indeed, Tedford has experienced an uncharacteristic lack of success in the treacherous realm of Los Angeles. Also, if they can win 4 games with Kevin Craft, they should be able to win like 14 with someone else. I mean, the guy threw 13 picks and 0 TDs in his last 5 games."

 "I concur. Oregon will be strong as always, but given some of their losses from last year I am confident of our success. UCLA, I have a bad feeling about. Dude, I totally want to bone Longshore."

 

 

"What the fuck?"

 

"WRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!"
