Dedicated to the HATRED of all things trOJan


Oh say, can you see?

What a Country!  Happy 4th of July to Bruin-Americans

Usually, when the word “Banner” appears on these pages, it’s referring to the imminent NCAA Championship Banner that Ben Howland is about to deliver to Westwood.  But today, it also refers to Old Glory, as in the Star-Spangled variety of Banner.

Today is Independence Day — A day to celebrate America, and to celebrate what it means to be an American.  Even people who hate the current Government will join the celebration this year, since they think they see the light at the end of the tunnel, and no longer need to hide their pride.

That amounts to a whole lot of Barbecue-ing today, in pretty intense heat for you locals.  So use liberal amounts of sunblock, and make sure to continuously re-hydrate, 12 ounces at a time. 

And speaking of intoxication, here are some photos of the intoxicatingly-gorgeous UCLA Spirit Squad, after three shots that pay tribute to the Stars and Stripes.

O beautiful, for specious guys…

Okay, okay, it’s “spacious skies.”  (And Hendrix says “kiss the sky,” NOT “kiss this guy.”)

“Fryer Truck”  —  Hopefully, most of the flames tomorrow will be on trucks, cars, and Flaming Homers, and not in the local brush.

Whose broad stripes and BRIGHT STARS…

Yankee Doodle DANDY!

Click to zoom in, and see that the short ‘n sassy haircut is just a trick of the light.

She was just an American Girl, raised on promises…

Young American; Young American; She was a Young American.  Allllll-right, she was a Young American; […that one damn girl who could make you:  BREAK DOWN and CRY-YY.]

They’re the Kids, they’re the Kids, they’re the Kids in America.

You think that outfit will keep her warm in Minnesota?  If not, the thermostat in the big mansion that she’ll probably be living in will probably do the trick.

Uh-oh.  Someone better call the tap pants Police to turn me in.

I like to be in America;  Okay be me in America;  Everything free in America;  For a small fee in America!
