The very definition of bittersweet. If Cal had taken care of business against Arizona, we'd be Pasadena-bound. We hope that lesson sinks in for those Golden Bears who return to fight in 2007. Go Bears! Beat the Aggies!

Also, for those that missed it, Cal defeated the USC Trojans for the National Water Polo crown.

Kirk Everist, the best player turned coach in Cal history? I know Clark is umatched as a coach, but Everist was POY I think. Great news!

SOme commentary on the end of the game from cyberbears (which I didn't see due to lack of tv coverage for crappy ComCast)

SC scores with 1.78 seconds left. CAL puts the ball in play and scores. 7-6 CAL

CAL did this is spite of the fact its best player and its Coach were ejected with about 6 minutes to go.

I just watched the replay tonight on CSTV. Wow!! The Bears played a fantastic second half, scoring four straight to reverse a 2-goal halftime deficit. SC got a number of breaks in the final two minutes from the refs, including getting both the Bears' best player (Mann) and coach ejected, and scored the tying goal in the dieing moments. Then lightning struck on a Christian Laettner-like prayer at the buzzer, and we're national champs again for the first time since the legendary Pete Cutino era. (I lived in the dorms with Cutino's nephew, and did water polo play-by-play for KALX.) It was basically The Play in water, sans laterals and Joe Starkey, and USC's band had the good sense to stay out of the water. Certainly more exciting stuff than the Big Game yesterday, although I'm not one to EVER downplay a victory over Stanford or a Pac-10 (co)championship!! Maybe this was a satisfying weekend for us Bear fans, after all--the male hoopsters coming up short against Nevada notwithstanding.
