Whine Cellar: What Would Be Sexier Than a 20-1 Stanford?
Welcome back to the Whine Cellar, where after attending the last six men's basketball games, yours truly will be sadly missing the biggest one. May whoever decided that it would be a good plan for me to fly east for the weekend be given a solid beating.

Bears Begin Spring in Windy Conditions
The Cal women's golf team kicked off its spring season yesterday in Palos Verdes, Calif. at the Northrop Grumman Regional Golf Challenge. Cal finished the first of three days 20-over par and in sixth place overall.

Parnell Guilty on All Counts
OAKLAND-A jury found notorious child predator Kenneth Parnell guilty of trying to buy a 4-year-old boy in Berkeley, after deliberating for less than two hours yesterday.

Sex On Tuesday: The True Test of Love
I'll break it to you gently-love and romance hardly exist in college. What, then, can we talk about on this holiday invented by Victoria's Secret and the candy hearts company? Survival, as in "Stayin' Alive," not "I Will Survive." Roll those eyes back to the page. Remember, a well-oiled sex-machine, like a fine automobile, performs best and lasts longest when it's had its parts checked regularly.
