It’s raining again

Which brings to mind yet another old song, the one by Supertramp in 1982 or so.
Anyway, out walking around a little while ago, right around 1 p.m., and it was definitely raining again, so that could be a factor tonight.
Some interesting reading in the LA papers over lunch.
The first 10 letters in the LA Times’ weekly Saturday letters section all focused on UCLA, none glowing with praise for Karl Dorrell or the Bruins.
A few examples:
“Is there any chance that Ben Olson will take another two-year mission?”
“This UCLA team’s personality is a total reflection of its coach — asleep at game time. Wake up Mr. Athletic Director and find a coach who is not comatose.”
“All of a sudden, Notre Dame-UCLA looks like a good matchup.”
Regarding the game last week, one fan wrote “I have seen better performances from delusional ‘American Idol’ wannabes.”
You get the drift.
Also, Brian Dohn of the LA Daily News picked the Bruins to win 27-21, but wrote that UW will win if Jake Locker and Louis Rankin combine to fun for 175 yards or more; if Locker doesn’t play like a redshirt freshman, calling this his first road game, writing that Syracause doesn’t count; and if UW gets some pressure on Patrick Cowan.
And how big do some think this game is for UCLA? The headline to the preview story in the Pasadena Star News today is “Bruins trying to salvage the season.”
ON PRESS BOXES: To answer the question on press boxes, UW is definitely a unique view and that certainly gives it some character. Being so high up also allows you to really see the plays develop. But sometimes it’s nice to really be close to the action, as well, so I enjoy a lot of others such as Washington State (about as close as you can get in the Pac-10) and Oregon State’s old one (haven’t been in the new one yet), each of which offer nice views of the action In terms of plushness, Oregon’s is the new standard in the Pac-10, as might be expected given their emphasis on facilities. Lots of room up there. The Rose Bowl’s not really one of my favorites as it’s another one where it feels like we’re quite a ways from the action, and as visiting media, we tend to be placed near one end, so the other end zone can seem quite distant. Still, simply being in the Rose Bowl is always a bit of a thrill.
