The Big Guy Returns

Chairman Of The Board

The banner at the top shows a view towards the Bay this morning, as The Big Guy made his way carefully under the Golden Gate Bridge and began wading east through San Francisco Bay. As usual, most water traffic was halted until noon, but ferry service should resume shortly.

It's the 101st running of the Bay-To-Breakers here on May 20th, and Godzilla's participation has been a time-honored tradition since 1954.

As an avid jazz aficionado, Godzilla will be appearing at or near Yoshi's, beside the Oakland yacht harbor (there's a celebration of the music of Johnny Otis this evening), and is scheduled to address the graduating classes at UC Berkeley and Stanford while he's in the area. We're not sure how or where else he'll spend his time here, but he will be hard to miss.

The Big Guy is a UCLA graduate, and we understand Stanford has begged for mercy in advance of his appearance.
