It's said there are three basic food groups for Southerners: sugar, lard and bourbon. Of course, this leaves out the most important food group, the one no self-respecting Southerner would turn down: grits. People From Away (anywhere north, east or west of the South) don't always understand the attraction to the bland, mushy, white mound of cereal. They often liken grits to wet plaster or wallpaper paste.
Attempts to bring a creative edge to the annual world dance finale of the Dance Kaleidoscope series are probably doomed. However, celebratory spectacle did occasionally yield to more purposeful expression at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre on Saturday--never more memorably than when Mark Mendonca repeated the intense, sexy, technically dazzling untitled tap solo that had opened the series a week earlier.

Defensive back Walter Washington returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown and teammate Eric Houston blocked a punt to set up another score in Hayward State's non-conference victory over Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo at Hayward, Calif. Houston, a defensive lineman, recorded three quarterback sacks in addition to his key block with 10:17 remaining in the contest. It set up quarterback Bill Neal's 1-yard touchdown plunge, which gave Hayward (2-0) a 21-17 lead with 8:52 left in the game.

LIKE any child of the '50s, I have warm and fuzzy memories of Thanksgiving being more of a marathon than a meal. We would eat until we almost hurt, then start all over again. A feast like that was just too rare to rush through. Those long, lazy, dedicated-eating holidays were the antithesis of Thanksgiving today, when the cover line over the turkeys on all the food magazines really should read: "Gone in 60 seconds."

The majority who came to watch football saw tailback Mike Kane gain more than 100 yards for the second straight Saturday in leading the Matadors to a 20-7 upset over Cal State Hayward, which went into the game ranked No. 19 in Division II.
