BERKELEY, Calif. – Greetings from the Bowl from Antiquity, otherwise known as California’s Memorial Stadium.

The trees are nice. The acoustics are great. The climb to get here? Not so much.

Anyway, the cheerleaders and the band are in the stadium three hours before kickoff. So are some Maryland managers.

More to come from a warm Bay Area, which figures to get chilly in a hurry once the sun goes down. That’s how it unfolded last night at the A’s game; I’m expecting a repeat here tonight.
