Normally, I hate having to do the DBD. I did them for like a year and a half straight, day in and day out and it got really annoying. I'm happy when others do them and try to only do them when its late in the morning and nobody has done one yet. Which has been more then I would like recently. So, don't take this DBD posting to mean in any way that I want you guys to stop doing DBDs. Please, I beg of you, continue to do so.
Today, though, I had an idea and I wanted to put it out there. I want to create an army. An army of .gifs! Many other sites have tons of animated .gifs and that is great. But we need our own. And we need the to be Cal-oriented.
For those unaware, animated .gifs tend to be short animations of just a few seconds based off of photo compilations or videos.
The first step to creating an army of Cal-related gifs is to brainstorm. So, I beseech you DBD collective, what are your ideas? Here are a few ideas that have been proposed so far:
Oski doing something creepy
Tedford throwing his chart down in 2007 OSU
Oski tackling tree at late 90s bball game
Ezeff fumble at 2007 Oregon
Pain Train paintraining people.
Patrick getting Chunged
What other thoughts do you have????
So, let's brainstorm ideas. What Cal-related moments would be awesome gifs? Where can we find these moments? Who wants to create the gifs? The creativity of this community, in my view, is unmatched. Let's create.
Dana Vollmer broke her own meet record in winning the 100 butterfly in 57.39 seconds, a full second under her old time from 2007. Olympic silver medalist Christine Magnuson was second in 58.87.
Two-time Olympian Katie Hoff led all the way in winning the 200 freestyle, touching in 1:57.58. Hoff won the 400 free on Saturday.
"It's kind of clicked for me at this meet, and I'm relieved and excited for everything to finally come together," she said. "It kind of gives me the boost I need heading into nationals."
Two-time defending Olympic champion Natalie Coughlin won the 100 back in 1:00.52, edging Rachel Bootsma.
"That was the fastest I've been out all season," Coughlin said. "I like it to be faster, and hopefully when I get a little rest in the next three weeks it will be at nationals."
