I literally ran into my long time friend Jerry Figone just 35 minutes ago here at San Francisco International Airport.
Jerry is the team manager of the legendary California Golden Bears Rugby Team. In fact, Cal just won the national championship in what is called “sevens.” Congratulations to Cal Rugby and the living legends Jack Clark and Jerry Figone.
I have known Jerry since 1985, in Oakland. He established a popular Cal bar called The Golden Bear. Now known as Room 389, The Golden Bear became a popular spot for many Oakland politicians.
