Cal #1...unofficially...at least for a few hours

Savor the moment Cal fans. Although the polls don't come out until tomorrow, unofficial rankings would have Cal ranked number 1 as they go into halftime leading Oregon State 14-13. Pictured are George Kopas, Bob Swenson and me celebrating the moment. The last time Cal was ranked number 1 was 1938! To put things into perspective, here are some major events of 1938.

Germany annexes Austria.

Germany demands Sudetenland from Czechoslovakia. (Who has even heard of Sudetenland????)

Oil discovered in Saudi Arabia.

Orson Welles causes panic when broadcasting his radio version of The War of the Worlds

The last reunion of the Blue and Gray commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Du Pont announced a name for its new synthetic yarn: "nylon".

Adolf Hitler is Time magazine's "Man of the Year" , an award that usually goes to the most influential person of the year

Dow Jones industrial average hovers around 100!

Hey Mate,
We savored the MOMENT any way! Last week Jerry Engler told me that the difference between new blues and old blues is that old blues hope Cal wins while new blues expect Cal to win. I told him that's because new blues just haven't lived long enough. Last night, a lot of new blues became old blues.

Your mate in the perennial pain of Bear fandom,
