Dan The Pundit Eaton (Street Articles Author)

I was born and raised in the bay area, and I am a sports junky. Whatever sport is in season is what I'm into. Right now it's football, basketball, maybe a little hockey. Then once again in February it's time for pitchers and catchers to report. So many sports and not enough days in the year. I like the local teams the best, but know enough about all of the teams to impress even the die hard fan. You can like my facebook page DanThePunditSports or follow me on twitter @DanEaton386.

Cal Bears Not at Their Best But Still Winners
The Cal Bears fell behind by as many as seven points in the first half on Thursday night's home game against the first place newcomers the Colorado Buffalos. You could sense that they would need help from some unlikely sources. Harper Kamp, the senior forward out of Arizona, came to…
