Celebrate the Big Game Victory Like the GSB!

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

If you haven’t seen this already, or even if you have, take four minutes to celebrate today’s 21-3 triumph over the Golden Bears with some inspiring dance moves by a GSB flash mob of “Gangnam Style.” How they found a rainy day to tape this video is beyond me, but the content and choreography are worthy of the Cardinal brand.

This Week in Stanford 1/3/12 – 1/9/12

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012
I welcome you back to the Farm with the news.  Once the holidays were in full swing everything got a little hectic so here’s the news from after the New Year!
  • To start with a minor history lesson, explorations by PhD candidate Alexander Lee and Professor Kenneth Schultz in the formerly colonized Cameroon found that little involvement in the colonies had the best long term effects. Does this mean that no colonization had the best results?
  • Standing out. Blending in. Stanford celebs from Condoleezza Rice to John McEnroe to our very own Andrew Luck talk about how much and how little it means to be famous on campus.
  • Ford is going to try to soak in some of our inspiration and bright minds by opening a lab nearby in the Silicon Valley.
  • A PhD maybe more practical and doable than you think. Professor Russell Berman was one of many scholars who recently spoke  out at the recent Modern Language Association meeting that the whole dissertation process needs an upgrade and fast.
  • Alum Esosa Ozigbo ’10, as part of Techbridge, shows disadvantaged 8th grade girls their potential future in science and technology.  I think it’s also a nice reminder for undecided women here on the farm.
  • Mitt Romney had his one stint as a protester here on the Farm. Or really, counter-protester. It seems he attended our university for one year. This once again proves that Stanford has connections every where.
  • I have seen and felt the anger every where, including this blog. But unless someone high up makes a change, Big Game is going to be in October of all times this fall. And students will only have the chance to attend 3 home games.

Big Game 2010: A Victory in Photos

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Big Game 2010 was absolutely glorious.  From the not-actually-that-bad weather, to the epic LSJUMB costumes, to – oh, yeah – our domination of Cal, Big Game consisted of epic Stanford supremacy from start to finish.

Hopefully you cheered alongside me through rain and shine (and touchdown after touchdown after touchdown).  If not, however, don’t worry: here are my top picks of priceless Stanford moments, as accompanied by Big Game photos taken by yours truly.

Check it out.  And congratulations to Coach Harbaugh, Andrew Luck, and the men of Stanford Football for rocking the field yesterday.  Your hard work has paid off.  The Axe is OURS!!

Cal Thug Cops Arrest Stanford Student

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Stanford senior Sam Pressman was celebrating today’s 48-14 Big Game victory when the cops decided to be bad sports. As Pressman encouraged his fellow Cardinal fans to rush the field, Cal security surrounded and physically restrained him:

Pressman was last seen being escorted off the field in handcuffs:

Stanford Senior Sam Pressman is detained by Cal police after encouraging fellow students to rush the field at Memorial Stadium.

Never mind that Cal rushed our field after their victory last year. Their authorities treated student section members like protestors in an autocratic state. Apparently Berkley is the town of hippie tolerance only when Cal is winning.

Big Game Tickets Available

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

I haven’t received an email about it, but I was checking that all of my Red Zone points were in line this morning and saw that Big Game tickets were available as of 10AM this morning. The link is here to get your ticket, and it’s the same login you used to get a ticket to the USC game. I guess that this may not be official, but I can’t imagine the downside to getting your ticket earlier.

I’m also not certain if this is just a Red Zone thing or whether students without enough points (check against the list here to see if they got your total points right) can use this to get tickets as well. So far, the AD has been quiet about the point situation as far as how many tickets available, whether enough people have 9 points, if there’s a priority to buying tickets based on points less than 9, transportation to the game, or anything else. I would expect to see that soon.

In the mean time, enjoy your Big Game Week and answer the poll below on where you are with Big Game
