The Kupe D’etat: An 0de t0 Eugeni0

On Wednesday, Sept. 28, the entire country, nay the world, witnessed the culmination of the greatest collapse in the history of baseball. People all across the globe sat in bewilderment in front of their TVs, stared blankly at their computer screens, clicked furiously on their phones to constantly refresh —

Change we can (maybe) believe in

I was pretty frustrated after watching the Cal football team lose to Washington on Saturday. Initially, it just seemed like the same old story for the Bears: they put themselves in a position to win a key game, and ultimately came up empty. The loss brought back plenty of unkind

Thumb Wars: Home football games at AT&T Park

Thumbs Up Nothing will be as convenient as hosting football games on campus. No venue can compare to the majesty of the cannons echoing over Strawberry Canyon on a sunny afternoon. Nonetheless, playing home games at AT&T is a great thing. I love Memorial probably more than most, but there

Thumb Wars: This summer in sports

Thumbs Up I’d qualify this whole argument by first saying that a non-Olympic, non-men’s World Cup summer of sports can only be so interesting. Other than the  occasional dramatic conclusions to the NBA and NHL playoffs, a summer like this basically consists of midseason baseball highlights, offseason NFL news, and
