West Coast Offense

The battle to move to the West Coast is ongoing. The move isn't going as smoothly as we'd hoped, but it's going. I guess most moves go this way... it's just been a long time since I'd made the attempt, and the game-plan has been disrupted.


I can think of few people who brought more high points to my youth than Bill Walsh. I remember "The Catch" and beating the Cowboys in the playoffs. I remember the defeat of the Dolphins (ha ha ha!) in the Super Bowl. I remember almost missing dinner in the dorms while watching the last of his Super Bowl victories in 1989. His influence on the NFL was immense, from the West Coast Offense to the advocation of the recruitment of minority coaches. He'll be missed.

Hope the moving difficulties resolve soon! And your stuff shows up! Unbroken!

I recommend "Two Guys and a Bong". They're great movers and will work for practically just a bag of chips.

On the bright side, if our stuff never shows up, I'll just get to spend more time at Ikea. ;)

Yeah, sucks about Bill Walsh. He reminds me of my grandfather, who is a lot like him (intelligent, kind).

Bill Walsh's death made me unexpectedly sad. What an amazing legacy, though!
