Something’s Bruin

lots of action in westwood….

On a positive note, my brother in-law (and roommate) Uncle Dave ( aka Uncle Dbag) just got back from an incredible trip overseas. He was part of Coaches Tour 2009, which was an incredible 8-day trip to US military bases around the world. The purpose of the trip was to support the troops, have soldiers meet their favorite college football head coaches, and give mini-clinics and sessions. Coaches included Rich Neuheisel (UCLA), Jimm Tressel ( Ohio State), Mack Brown (Texas), among others..

Uncle D had the unique opportunity to be the “intern” for the trip, which included duties like packing 3,000 boxes of swag for the troops in Kansas before departure, coordinating 8 head coaches, and figuring out how to charge an ipod on a DC-10 airliner. To Uncle D’s credit, he even managed to keep a blog about his 8 days through Germany, Spain, Iraq and Turkey. A truly one-in-a-lifetime experience. I even offered to help him do his laundry when he got home. I know, I know, where do I find the compassion?

On a different note, (and when I mean different, I mean “what the fuck” note). While listening to Dan Patrick this AM, UCLA sophomore  quarterback Chris Forcier was on defending his press release  stating that he is leaving UCLA to transfer to Furman University. Waaah? What’s the big deal? Who is this kid? And why is he talking to Mr. Mane?

Then, I got home and read the the press release.  Or should I say “fact release”. OMG – cmon kid, at least use spell check! As Uncle D works closely with the quaterbacks, I cannot wait to hear the inside scoop on this one. I will keep you posted. 

In the meantime,

FACT: When in doubt, just drink more wine. It’s the secret to living with a toddler and your brother-in-law.
