Bowing for Best - the Beavers at Their Best


If you saw the November 7, 2009, football game between the Oregon State Beavers and the California Golden Bears, you likely saw the spectacular spill by Cal star running back Jahvid Best. Or maybe you saw it on highlight clips later. Or maybe you were on a different planet.

You can find still photos at:

I was watching the game - rooting for my "lunchbucket" Beavers. They had a great performance, downing a good Cal team 31-14.

But for my money, Oregon State's best performance came when the Beavers' defensive team took the knee in the end zone, praying as Best lay still following his spectacular crash.

I am thankful for the OSU athletes who had the sensitivity - and boldness - to pray.

'Nuff said.

With gratitude and appreciation to the OSU men who put a great face of compassion on a very violent game,
