U-C-L-A! Fight! Fight! Fight!

POST #    679

Last night, to add to my sporting experience here in Los Angeles, I went to the UCLA basketball game. The Bruins took on the Oregon State Beavers and defeated them 77-66. I can't say that we went for the scintillating match-up, but more to take in the atmosphere in Westwood, the legendary home of the Bruins. Despite the less than capacity turnout, it was a cool experience. We got to see Pauley Pavilion, the newly dedicated Nell & John Wooden Court, and of course the Spirit Squad.

My one complaint was their band. Granted, they are not blessed with the best fight song in the land (not even the best in L.A. for that matter), but there is no excuse for wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Please, spare us. You're not in Hawaii and your blue and gold mishmash of a shirt isn't cool.
