Nick is a 4th generation Cal graduate and does his best to follow the 49ers and Giants in addition to his beloved Bears. You can also find his writing at California Golden Blogs, where he primarily covers women's basketball and baseball. He promises to make an effort to help the growth of American soccer by following the Earthquakes. Nick currently is resigned to living in Sacramento, but he and his loyal wife make the trip west on interstate 80 as often as they can to take in Bay Area sports.
