Nothing but true fans in SoCal. Trojans, uh are they playing this weekend? Is the in week comment. Pathetic fan base.
I'd argue that but you really can't.

Of course the reason you have more rabid fans back east is...well...there is NOTHING else going on! Out here we have way too many options to have a decent fan base for ANYTHING.

My father, however, was a huge USC fan and football fan in general. On Sundays the man would have three TVs on at the same time, an ear bud from one going into one ear, an ear bud from the other going in the other ear, and the third TV cranked up loud but on Saturday it was only USC.

Now, other than being a SoCal native, you might remember my name and that is the OTHER big reason I like USC. Now when they play ASU I'm a little torn as I graduated from ASU and the colors are really similar so it's hard to root for one side over the other.

<--- not a Bandwagoner. I went to ASU and I've followed USC for as long as I can remember.

That is cool we're going to the monastery again.

I stopped at the Edward Dean museum today, may put it in the run. Also will be adding the Julius leg he wants us to do, it adds about three miles.

The museum wants 5.00 bucks ahead to go through on a guided tour. What do you think about that?

They can do it in any time frame we want. 15 minutes to 2 hours is what she said.

My concern is everyone up for paying the 5.00 dollars. Would not want half of them saying no I will wait in the parking lot.

I agree Razz, but you just never know.

I think the San Diego group is more social than car oriented. You just never know, you should hear the comments about separate checks for dinners.

LOL Norbert. Thank you! I actually had a rough day at work one day and when I went to leave, I threw the top down to enjoy a sunny and warm SoCal afternoon to decompress. When I started up the Sky and started to leave my work parking lot, that song came on the radio. LOL
