    I'd like to see a hoops game between the Banana Slugs and the Fightin' Okra.

    If they make the Great American Challenge and coed naked lacrosse NCAA sports, the Banana Slugs will move up to Division I.

    In the first picture made of me holding my first daughter, I am wearing a Banana Slugs t-shirt.

    Was that before or after you moved out of your mom and dad's basement?

    When I was working in junior hockey we used to get boxes of promotional samples from companies looking for our business. Most of it was crap, the one item I liberated - and I have worn it so much at my kid's baseball games and other summer outings that it has faded - is a yellow UC Santa Cruz cap with the mascot on front and "Slugs" on the back.

    Before. We stayed there through two more kids and two more jobs. Sure, we owned houses in other states -- one close to 1,000 miles away -- and our kids went to schools in those states, too. But I just couldn't have pulled it off without that place to crash for free.

    It's worth pointing out that the question isn't whether the students want an athletic program, it's whether they want to pay more fees for one.

    Considering that tuition and other costs there have skyrocketed, you can't blame someone for not wanting to pay more, no matter what it's for. Unfortunately, they don't get to choose whether they want to pay for the chancellor's pay increase.

    Rough, tough and in the buff. The 90s were such a great time for novelty T-shirts.
