49ers

Logan Tom and my bizarre thing for indoor volleyball, HOUSE

Okay, so the 49ers finally winning a game (fumble recovery for a touchdown in OT!!!) was pretty exciting, but I think the most exciting game I've watched recently is... Cal vs Stanford women's volleyball. *shamefaced* In my defense, the game did go to a Game 5 and "OT" (haha, the announcers actually call it that) and Stanford came from behind to win on a stuff block and win the conference championship.

They talked about Logan Tom and Ogonna Nnamani (both Stanford alums) playing in the World Championships and how Cynthia Barboza and Foluke Akinradewo (currently at Stanford) are going to be playing for the 2008 Olympics team and I got all excited and stuff. My interest in volleyball started during the 2004 Summer Olympics and I was really excited to find out that Collapse )

*ahem* sorry, that Logan Tom was from Stanford, and then during the NHL lockout I started watching college volleyball and Stanford won the championship that year! They were the #6 seed, so they were sort of the underdog and it was all very exciting. :)

How awesome has House been this season??? I know it's essentially a procedural, but their innovation and risk that totally paid off (fire almost the entire main cast???) and perfect sense of pacing is just amazing. Comparable to Season 3 of Lost, which I really enjoyed. I was spoiled by TV Guide several weeks ago as to who would make the final cut, but I really appreciated the devious way House got to keep one extra person. And I love that he likes 13 because he never shows that he likes anybody. :P
