Can Guy in a Bear Suit Get into Cal-Nevada Game?

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 4:30 PM

The bear will not quit. The bear will not die.
  • The bear will not quit. The bear will not die.
The bear will not quit. The bear will not die.
When a Bay Area man -- who shall remain nameless, for now -- received the ticket for tonight's U.C. Berkeley-Nevada football game in Reno, it came with the following stipulation from his Nevadan cousin: "You will not root for the Bears. End of discussion."

Naturally, the local's next move was to hop onto the Internet and purchase a bear suit. Even splurged for overnight delivery.

Come Monday -- assuming he survives -- we'll have the answer for you: Can a guy in a bear suit get into the Cal-Nevada game at Mackay Stadium in Reno?

This may be a bit harder than the Russian Tea Room, by the way.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
