Come in! Make yourself comfortable!
For many of our longtime readers, an explanation of the Daily Bear Dumb (DBD) is unnecessary - it’s been a community-driven feature of CGB as soon as the move to SBNation back in 2008. But for the uninitiated, the DBD was created as a space for the community to talk about, well, whatever the hell they might want to talk about (within our community guidelines, of course). This is a great place to share links, meet new Cal fan friends, and plot our inevitable reconquer of Write For California North.
Because the DBD has always been community-driven, we’ll do all we can to adapt the DBD to the new environment here at W4C. That means we’ll make sure there’s a new DBD up each weekday for as long as this community gets value in having a dedicated space for conversation and/or work avoidance.
Like, perhaps you’d like to use this place to discuss how Princeton students are too dumb to just accept their extraordinary and undeserved good luck to be graced with Marshawn’s presence.

Memories of the DBD

Our crumbling democracy
Anyone watch the new Netflix show Murderville? It's not very good but the guest star in episode #2 is Marshawn. Will Arnett stars as a detective that each week gets a new partner to help solve a murder. The running gag (I guess) is that the guest star doesn't get a script and has to ad lib with all of the other actors that got a script. Conan O'Brien was the guest in episode 1. Not recommending based on the first episode but looking forward to watching Marshawn tonight
Exam question: It is called the Daily Cal but does not come out daily. It is called the Daily Bear Dump (or DBD) but does not appear on weekends. In fifty words or less explain these two Cal-related contradictions.
Thanks for the explanation ... maybe keep this post in an site intro somewhere
Suggestion/request: instead of only linking to some old post about the genesis of DBD which is interesting and good to link, how about adding just a little more description about how to post here ... for example, when someone posts a new topic, I see some just type of word or short phrase, yet others preface it with DBD ... is there any difference?
Also, some posts seem to be repetitive such as "Today in Covid" and "Our crumbling democracy"
On other forum-type boards these kinda of ongoing topics have one continual discussion thread. In this blog format, comments from the day before get lost quickly ... but I'm I understanding how to think about these repetitive topics?
Signed, the uninitiated
