Daily Cal Interviews CGB's CalBear81 For Important Journalistic Story About Journalism!

31

Hey, this is cool! The Daily Cal, which may or may not exist by the time you are reading this post, interviewed our own CalBear81! Here is the link. And here is a cool excerpt: Though the majority of her blog posts are about Cal football, Mitchell also writes about the history of smaller sports like women’s tennis or baseball. Of the 30-plus posts she has written thus far, her favorite story was about the 1896 Cal-Stanford women’s basketball game. "I would have expected the honor going to some East Coast university," Mitchell said. "I was like, ‘We were the first college women’s basketball program ever?’ How about that?" Surprises have become commonplace for Mitchell whenever she researches for a story. But even then, she stumbles into tales that make her shake her head in amazement. "I was once flipping through a Cal alumni book that my grandfather used to have, and I found this spectacular photo of this huge mob of people surrounding the Cal crew team by Sather Gate (after they won the gold medal in the 1928 Olympics)," Mitchell said. "You can’t imagine a mob of 10,000 people showing up in Sproul Plaza today for the football team." Thanks to the DailyCal and CalBear81 for being both so awesome! GO BEARS!
