At a minute or two 'til two

Apparently I'm way behind in keeping track of the news in sports, because I hadn't heard about the person personifying (Yes, I wrote "person personifying". It's not so bad, in an article I was reading yesterday someone wrote "explanations explain.") the Stanford tree losing her mascot-ship. But my roommate noticed an article mentioing it in this week's issue of Sports Illustrated. I don't have anything to add to the story, except to say that I've known that girl since about 1998, since she was a year behind me in High School.
