Welcome to Write for California
Being a Cal fan, even in times of prosperity, is never easy--but it's a unique and noble pursuit that bonds us for life, and compels us to shout 'Go Bears' at strangers in faraway locales and stay loud, proud and unbowed in the face of logic and disappointment. If you're not one of us, you wouldn't understand. If you bleed blue and gold, or strive to figure out what makes us tick, the fine folks at Write For California are there to serve as your roadmap... and cover the hell out of Cal sports like a bear suffocating a tree. - Mike Silver.
