1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8....U...C...L...A!
My UCLA Bruins are playing cross-town rivals USC Trojans on Saturday, Dec 6th (here goes my birthday mention #1,004,582: that's the day before my birthday)!
Yes, I've heard the point spread (I think UCLA is a 900 point underdog at this point). And yes, I've seen the footage of several interceptions by UCLA this season. But I also remember UCLA winning a critical game a few years back. So..it can happen! I believe!
Clara from Ihearteverything (hee hee) - Iheartfood4thought and Iheartcuppycakes, Linda from Tendercrumb and I are having a virtual blog-luck tailgate party for the game! And you are invited!
I picked up these Bruin Blue & Gold sprinkles at Surfas, and bought the adorable UCLA confetti at the Fresno State-UCLA game (yeah, we lost that one too). I'm dropping some off at my cousin's house so she can bring them into work too!
Master's in Library and Information Studies in 2003 and meet some really wonderful friends.
Years ago, I remember talking up March Madness at my old job. My colleague went to a small college with no sports teams, and just couldn't get the whole "college spirit" and UCLA obsession. She happened to be a big Lakers and Dodgers fan. So I explained it this way:
No matter how much I work out and practice my swing, I'll probably never play for the Dodgers. And even if I find a pill that makes me grow 12 inches (that'll only make me 6'2"!!), I'll probably never be a Laker. But I'll always be a Bruin.
So, UCLA football team... I don't have tickets to the game, but you'll hear me cheering my heart out this weekend! Goooooo Bruins!
