So, I guess our basketball team still has a ways to go. The Spartans got served by Stanford last night, but there's really no shame in that. On a brighter note, it does hopefully a signal a normalizing of relationships between the two programs. For whatever reason, we hadn't played in like 10 years.

The Merc's gamer makes it pretty clear we were just outclassed. Still, George Nessman at least seems to have us headed in the right direction after the Chuck Bell-induced drunken-boys network did its best to resurrect then ruin the program.

One particularily nice thing about playing Stanford is that we do get added media exposure. The Chron even managed to write a few Stanford-centric words.

Just for fun, I thought I'd include this nugget from the Spartan Daily, you know, the paper, Jon, Aaron and I saved from extinction a few years back. Goddamn it, they have fallen hard. Not to focus too much on this, but do they ever write live stories that are culled from press-releases anymore? It's insane.

"A blue brochure at the Event Center information desk at the Sports Club gave information on a unique kind of athletics club for students." -- What!?

That's worse than when the paper quoted earlier this year as the source from which a reporter learned the capacity of McAfee Colisuem.

That story was about SJSU cheerleaders performing at a Raider game. While citing is funny in its own respect, the best part was how the reporter quoted a freshman as saying it was the largest crowd thsat SJSU cheerleaders had EVER entertained. It may be true and all, but coming from a freshman, the statement carries little weight.

As for live gamers, you'd think they'd do them more often, especially basketball since the Event Center is so close to the office.

I guess I should just bash the Spartan Daily if I want comments. Done and done.

I would be all for bashing, if it wasn't so sad.
