Yet another fine day in San Diego. Started with practice in the morning, followed it up with lunch with my sister in Old Town and a spin around my old neighborhoods, and finished with Navy basketball vs. San Diego State.
I didn’t take any pictures until after practice ended. I’m not going to be revealing any state secrets here. I will say that I continue to marvel at the efficiency of a Division I football practice. That, and Coach Spencer is a loud dude. And Scott Strasemeier gave me a copy of the bowl guide, which was pretty sweet. Anyway, there were a few post-practice interviews going on, starting with The Man:
Reggie got in on the act:
As did Coach Green:
After practice, I headed out to lunch. Old Town is like the Mecca of Mexican food. Well, except for Mexico, anyway.
Later on, it was on to the basketball game:
You can’t tell because of the awesome blurry picture I took, but there was a sizable Navy contingent.
Greg Sprink is, and always shall be, the man.
Your typical student section:
Billy coachin’ em up:
We were actually leading for a long time!
There are days when you really appreciate the goat. Today was one of those days.
Sprink on defense:
The pinnacle of creativity. OMG TEH GO ARMEEZ. OH NOES!
The game was actually pretty good. I assume a lot of you saw it on CSTV. I really wanted to win. SDSU came out showboating bigtime with some ridiculous dunk and alley-oop attempts. They obviously didn’t respect Navy much as a team. It was nice to make them sweat a little. One bad stretch in the 2nd half pretty much did us in. But Navy played a good game.
