About this blog: I am a native of Alameda County, grew up in Pleasanton and currently live in the house I grew up in that is more than 100 years old. I spent 39 years in the daily newspaper business and wrote a column for more than 25 years in addition to writing editorials for more than 15 years. I have served as a director of many non-profits in the Valley and the broader Bay Area and currently serve as chair of Teen Esteem and on the advisory board of Shepherd?s Gate. I also served as founding chair of Heart for Africa and have travelled to Africa seven times to serve on mission trips. My wife, Betty Gail, has taught at Amador Valley High (from where we both graduated) since 1981. She and I both graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, as did both of my parents and my three siblings. Given that Cal tradition, our daughter went south to the University of Southern California and graduated with a degree in international relations. Since graduation, she has taken three mission trips and will be serving in the Philippines for nine months starting in September. (Hide)

For Old Blues like me who also root for the Santa Clara 49ers, we face unprecedented challenges this evening.
For the first time, likely ever, the 49er-Seahawk broadcast will run nearly simultaneously with the broadcast of Cal's game against UCLA in Southern California. Thank God for DVRs.
When pro football used to be just Sunday with one Monday game and the college game was largely confined to Saturday, such a head-to-head event would never have occurred.
Now that the pro game takes three days and college football also takes place over three days, this likely will not be the first time that a local pro broadcast ends up at the same time as the college game.
Now to the DVR to check the settings.
