    Maybe if we can get enough vaccines pushed out into the SGV and start lowering the death and infection rates we can have a few baseball and football games for the kids before the school year is over. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Wait. What? USC beat UCLA 43-38. How could that be.
    According to @cif Chip Kelly had UCLA “turning the corner and should be undefeated.” Not sure what corner they’re turning but maybe it’s the corner into the parking garage for their bus for the season. A 3-3 record is not really close to undefeated. Just saying.
    @cif’s twin brother, @Truth It’s hard to fathom how a “bunch of 5 star individuals” could beat your “team”. I thought you said UCLA will “take care of business” because “USC is garbage”. Hope you didn’t put up your record player and Monkees record collection as collateral for your bet. Your Mom would be so pissed. Again, just saying.
