Big tip of the cap to Redonkulous Bear for some amusing video of the Stanford Cardinal Tree. An oft repeated question is if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around, does it make a sound? Well, we don't have an answer for that, but we do have an answer to this important question: If the Stanford tree falls face first into steps on the ESPN Campus while being filmed skipping down a sidewalk, does it make a sound?
Yes indeed it does. As the video after the jump shows, it is not a pretty picture and the thump we hear cannot be a good thing. Assuming the Tree is alright, Cal fans will likely be forward this video along to their friends for some time to come. If I were operating the video board at future Big Games on the Cal campus, I have to think this becomes a staple video.
