Don't worry; this isn't a DBD about how we shouldn't care about Cal football anymore, just because we've had a few/several blowout losses this year, most recently to the sorry excuse for a school they call "Stanford[sic]". Yes, Saturday was a tough day; hell, the whole weekend was tough for Bay Area sports (anything played down at furd cannot be called sports; sports teams have fans), but that's no excuse for us to not come out fired up again for the UDub game and a shot at a bowl game and a winning season.
No, my friends and lovers... this is about stanfurd's supposed fans. See, when they slowly trickled onto our field (and I could not find a single Cal fan willing to help me try to stop them), I wondered where all these fans had been or whether these were a bunch of furd students who suddenly watched football because they have a good team. How much did these people really care about sports and how many of them were just along for the ride?
With this thought in my mind, I went out on Saturday night. Now, since Berkeley was in a bad state and the trees had inherited the turf, I wanted to go to safe territory, so I went to Bear Territory South, otherwise known as Palo Alto.
I thought back to that question in my head about stanfurd's supposed fans and figured they must be out in full force, with their team having come off a huge, once-in-a-lifetime victory. Except... there weren't. Not once through the streets of University Ave or in the bars were there stanfurd chants or even people cheering about the game. And these are the closest bars to their campus.
Never one to let things just be, I figured it's time to
cause trouble investigate this further. I briefly contemplated taking down stanfurd posters inside the bars, but decided that destruction of property isn't something that Cal students do. Instead, I figured I'd just give a "Go Bears!" shout to anyone wearing a red shirt. No responses, no push-back, nothing. Would Cal fans let stanfurd fans do the same thing, even after a huge loss? I certainly hope not. Nowhere that I went did anyone seem to care that a football game had just happened.
So the moral of the story is... well, there's no moral and not really much of a story, so F stanfurd
Screw it, here are some puppies.
